New England’s top event professionals, stylists, and visionaries alike gathered for BLISSbash at the newly renovated Waterfire Arts Center for the unveiling of our 2018 issue.
With infinite ceilings, vast windows, and raw industrial architecture, the event space at the Waterfire Arts Center was the perfect location to host BLISSbash. Greeted with their choice of our signature cocktails of the night; the Hi-Bliss-Cus Sparkler or the Forbidden Cocktail and a copy of the magazine, guests made their way inside. Two weathered iron beams framing a massive white wall provided a canvas for Ormonde Productions to project the pages of the magazine so everyone could see their breathtaking contributions on the big screen.
Savory passed hors d’oeuvres like duck confit sliders, avocado toast topped with fire-roasted corn, and buffalo chicken rangoon crafted by Russell Morin Catering & Events whet everyone’s appetite as they mingled and flipped through the pages of our 2018 issue. Lush floral arrangements in vibrant spring hues and soaring areca palms designed by Sayles Livingston Design softened the space making guests feels as though they were attending a swanky outdoor soiree in the tropics. Cozy lounge areas mixed with high-top tables from Party Rental LTD offered a variety of places to sit while guests feasted on the ethnic cuisine from each of the serving stations. A retro silver Airstream trailer-turned-mobile-bar by Hive Events offered a whimsical spot to get a refill on cocktails, beer, and wine. Decked out with marquee lights, a reclaimed wood bar, and a comfy seating area — once guests got in they didn’t want to leave! It was the perfect, unexpected touch of nostalgia that completed the night.
