When we heard that there will be a new tent coming to Castle Hill Inn this spring, and that it will be custom designed by the amazing folks at Sperry Fabric Architecture, the makers of Sperry Tents, we had to learn more! We were invited to the Chalet at Castle Hill last Thursday evening for cocktails, treats, and a big reveal. Sketches, drawings, and plans were presented to us regarding the brand new, (and huge!) Savannah Series sailcloth tent that will be erected this Spring. We thought we'd share with you some of the images, along with some photos of the great set up they provided at the little event. It was so homey and woodsy inside the Chalet with fire ablaze as we listed to all the amazing details that will be included. We can't wait to meet that pretty tent in person! For the event the organic floral design (that included birch bark, radishes, and succulents!) was provided by Stoneblossom, the beautiful Moss and Egglant colored duponi silk linens and chairs from Rentals Unlimited, fun Farmers table from John Orton Events, and of course the delecitables provided by Castle Hill (which included a mini Lobster boil, Macaroons, Carrot Cake, chocolate cake pops and so much more!).
Bliss Tip: Limited space but want a unique way to serve cocktails? Castle Hill created a little L shaped bar in the corner of the Chalet, draped it with lovely linens, and set it with high chiavari barstools. We LOVED this look!
It's been a surprisingly mild January thus far here in New England, more like Spring than Winter really. However, today is National Hot Toddy Day (I know, who thinks of these things, right?), so don your favorite Fair Isle sweater and break out the bourbon, because what better way to celebrate the fact that the holidays are over than with a warm and relaxing cocktail? Cheers!
Having a winter party or wedding? A hot toddy bar like this one via Martha Stewart, allows guests to make their own warmer and the cocktail napkins have recipes and instructions… Adorable!

Happy Wedding Wednesday! We know we have a ton of girls with some new bling on the ring fingers here, so we are thrilled to show this video sent over by Artistic Wedding Films. The State Room in Boston was transformed into a winter wonderland for this stunning couple, and adding to the magic of the evening, the Artistic team actually created this piece to show at the wedding reception itself -a Same Day Edit! Love that everyone there got to experience all the emotions of the morning of the wedding, and relive the excitement of the day while they are watching the video right along side the couple! How cool is that?
Check it out!
