The team at PAPER & LACE had a rough time waking up this morning from mingling at The Knot’s South Florida Mixer. Once a year, The Knot hosts a groovy networking event for South Florida wedding vendors and we were invited! It was held on Wednesday, March 29th from 6:30pm to 9:30pm at the beautiful Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale, FL, right by the beach.
Although the event was held indoors, the sight of the beach in front of the luxury hotel added a delightful ambiance to the glitz and glam we experienced stepping into the mixer. The first thing we noticed going through the doors was this huge Macaron tree! The delicious cake pops and coconut donuts right behind it quickly threw our diet plans out the window, making it our cheat day for the week. We excessively ate more treats than the actual hors d’oeuvres, but we must say the lamb was tender, the mini hamburger sliders were good, and the watermelon with cream cheese on top was tasty!
Our favorite part was the live band, singing mashups from Michael Jackson’s greatest hits as well as the do-it-yourself body scrubs and taking fun, funky photos at the Photo Booth! We exchanged business cards with several vendors, some of which you will see featured on our social media! Here is some of the footage we captured that showcased some of the neat activities and happenings at the event.
