Beefeater Gin Party…Tales of the Cocktail

Every summer in hot month of July, Tales of the Cocktail descends upon New Orleans.  Beverage distributors of all kinds come in from all over the country, to host parties celebrating their brands.

This year, Leaf+Petal had the fortunate opportunity to work with some amazing distributors including El Tesoro Tequila, Ford’s Gin, High West Brewery from Park City and Beefeater Gin.

They were all pretty fabulous, but the Beefeater Party was one of my personal faves.

For one of their events, they hosted a seated dinner at Trinity Restaurant in the French Quarter.  The aesthetic was garden style, utilizing their brand colors as inspiration: ivory, blush, gold and accents of red.

Tables were laid out garlands of eucalyptus, white stock, blush roses, red and white ranunculus and red tulips.

To tie in the gold, we added our antique gold lanterns with additions of gold mercury votive cups.

 Now for next year, I need to work towards getting an invite.

 I may love flowers, but I love cocktails…
