Inviting Napa + Sonoma to Come Together

Danielle Gibson Events recently hosted an event with the help of our friends at Confete Party Box, inviting a variety of local vendors throughout the Napa & Sonoma area. We were thrilled to not only showcase the goodies we received in our Confete Party Box, but also share the afternoon with incredible women in the event and wine industry, and come together to support one another during a time of local adversity.

First, let’s give you a little background on Confete Party Box! This team launched their curated party boxes after receiving numerous requests from friends and family to assist in planning their parties, and of course, picking out the perfect decor. They quickly came up with the idea to share this experience with anyone looking for party decor for all types of occasions. The best part…it’s shipped right to your doorstep! Does it get any better than that?

Our Confete Party Box arrived just in time for our Halloween themed event and let-me-tell-you! These details were exactly what we needed to dress up our tablescape and festive cocktails. Our box included decorative plates + cups, our favorite glitter utensils, napkins (obviously in the shape of a ghost), drink stirrers and of course, lettered BOO-lloons (see what we did there?). Needless to say, we were quite pleased with the box and can’t wait to try them again in the future! Be sure to check out their website for the party box that’s perfect for your next event (psst! if you’re hosting a New Year’s Eve event, don’t miss this box)

After fawning over our party decor, including the tasty chocolate treats from Woodhouse Chocolate that were *almost* too cute to eat, we spent the afternoon catching up with some of our favorite “frendors” (see previous posts for definition). We laughed, we indulged in lots of german chocolate cake from Alexis Baking Company and even shed a few tears.

As many of you know, our beloved wine country was recently victim to some of the most devastating fires Northern California has ever seen. After over a week of turmoil and helplessly watching the devastation spread throughout our neighborhoods, our dedicated local fire departments (from near and far) were able to contain the fires. As anyone in the area can attest, every moment passed felt like a lifetime and every phone call received made our hearts drop. While some homes were spared, there were many in the area that were not and our hearts continue to ache for these friends, families and neighbors. The group of friends attending this event all live in and/or have business based in the Napa and Sonoma area. Needless to say, inviting these women to come together after such a monumental event was truly bittersweet.

During the event, Danielle Gibson read an email from a local winemaker, Azur Wines, who perfectly summed up what we all felt as we watched loved ones and strangers around us lose their homes, but also watch our community come together in a way that somehow made our hearts ache just a little less. While many lives will be forever changed by these events, we feel truly fortunate to be a part of such a compassionate and remarkable community.

Danielle Gibson Events hosted this event as part of the Take Time to Toast series, which focuses on bringing together, empowering, supporting and thanking boss babes. To learn more about Take Time to Toast, check out this blog!
