Veuve Clicquot Tasting Dinner

Last month we were just tickled to collaborate with one of our favorite champagne brands, Veuve Clicquot, at their tasting dinner at Table in Washington, D.C. The night was full of fantastic food, stimulating conversation and — of course — plenty of bubbly. One of Veuve Clicquot‘s nine winemakers attended the meal and kindly walked us through each course and varietal — so we walked away feeling a bit more knowledgable about champagne, too! The night was certainly one to remember — and it lives on through Caitlin’s styling tips and Abby Jiu’s gorgeous photos!

  • “Our goal with styling was to let the Veuve Clicquot brand shine while remaining cohesive with Table’s minimal farm-to-table aesthetic. I love the idea of displaying a menu during cocktail hour so people know what’s being passed. I created this easy garland using floral wire and blooms picked up at Whole Foods the morning of the event to further the organic feel.” – Caitlin 

  • “Servers poured tastes from champagne bottles that filled an oversized beverage tub. The tub appropriately anchored the cocktail hour space.”

  • “Everyone loves a good hashtag — Veuve Clicquot included! Guests were encouraged to keep their phones out throughout the meal to share their dining experience via social networking.” 

  • “With the help of Laura Hooper’s gorgeous calligraphy, I created another simple menu for the dining room (which leaned up against the chef’s kitchen).”

  • “Simple menus got a facelift with hand-painted watercolor borders. An easy trick to dress up white card stock and black ink!” 

  • “The floral designs were an a eclectic mix of Spring’s bounty!!” – Holly Chapple 

  • “Incredible florist Holly Chapple incorporated cherry blossoms along with Veuve Clicquot’s signature yellow color in the arrangements.”
