Take Time to Toast! A recap…

You’ve waited long enough…a toast to you for bearing with us as we sorted out the press for our rosé themed soirée. We’re so excited to finally share it with all of you!

Take Time to Toast

A toast to the fabulous girl bosses in our lives and all that we’ve done as a team.

Take Time to Toast was an event hosted by Danielle Gibson Events to take time to honor and thank (aka *toast*) the girl bosses that work with us! The concept came from the idea that we all work so hard, but we don’t take the time to toast each other, or ourselves, for that hard work. Being in the events industry, we are constantly throwing parties for clients but never for our own staff. The time has come in our book! This concept should be across all businesses, not just the events world…so Danielle Gibson Events decided to lead the way in celebrating those around us!

This Take Time to Toast event was for 8 very special women who partnered with DGE on our most recent corporate retreat. The retreat was a big deal for some high profile clients and these ladies worked their butts off to help everything go off without a hitch. What better way to say thank you than with rosé (both the wine and the color), delicious bites, and picture-perfect photo-ops? We had tons of vendors and sponsors that made this event come to life such as our photographer @megsmithphotography, our florist @scarlettandgrace, and our caterer @fogcutter_sf who created our idea of “bespoke bowls” perfectly. 

A special thank you to these vendors:

This event was a huge success and so much fun.

Not to mention, we’re in love with how the photos came out and tbh that’s why we’re all here…

Again, thank you to Meg Smith for these perfect images.

Moving forward we plan to make Take Time to Toast a DGE staple and we can’t wait to partner with more brands and make this happen on a large scale.
