The Bee’s Knees Partner Luncheon

At D Weddings, we have cause for celebration: this coming issue marks fifteen years in print. To commemorate, we hosted a luncheon for our advertising partners at the Venue at 400 North Ervay, partnering with Pop Parties to create a bee-utiful, bee-themed fete. At the luncheon, we also honored the Publisher’s Best, our partners who have been with us through it all.

Scroll through the slideshow below for highlights of the theme, food, and decor. Read below to see how Molly Rasmussen, owner of Pop Parties, developed a honey bee theme to make the luncheon feel truly “buzzworthy.”

“Given the nature of my job, I am a complete sucker for a good theme. While brainstorming with the D Weddings team, I kept coming back to honey bees. The soft gold tones, complimented by the iconic red D would make for a great color palette against the rich wooden textures that the courtroom at 400 North Ervay has to offer. I wanted it to be soft and beautiful but also fun! The invitation and menu cards had soft gold foil accents of honeycomb and cute sayings like ‘Honey, D Loves You’ to make sure our guests knew they really were appreciated for all they do for the industry and Dallas brides. We continued the theme through ‘buzzworthy’ foods that featured honey elements such as the thyme-infused vodka with honey lemonade and warm cream biscuits with whipped honey butter. The soft pink linens added an extra element of Southern flair with assorted chargers and service plates. My favorite element were the wooden laser cut bee bar menus and our honey favors!”

Thank you to our lovely partners.
