Saturday July 13, was a breezy evening in the Bay Area, California. It was just an ordinary evening...until it wasn't! At 9pm, LBDC, East Bay kicked off a launch party for the history books! With more than 80 excited members and guest, it was truly a night to be remembered; held at the cozy H-Lounge in Vallejo, California very quickly, this party was in full swing. Ladies from throughout the Bay Area looked stunning in little black dresses & hot pink heels!
Guest enjoyed a beautifully decorated venue with a color scheme of hot pink, black & white. There were sparkly lights, dazzling crystal, tons of balloons and satin table linen adorning the tables. The event was all jazzed up by local party planner Mary Ruiz from Balloon Works. Guest entered the party on a hot pink (instead of red) carpet, where professional photographers from Chic Photo captured the glitz & glamor of the evening!
There were personalized bottles of water, hot pink silicone monogrammed wristbands & designer shot glasses as well as LBDC t-shirts (styled on a pretty cute mannequin) as giveaways and door prizes! Oh! And the raffle prizes...each guest received a free raffle ticket upon entry. The more than 30 raffle prizes included bottles of wine, decorative picture frames, gift certificates, jewelry, accessories, gift baskets, gift boxes and more!
The H-Lounge offered 100 hot pink Jell-O shots to keep guest hydrated!! We also had a very special visit from Devotion Vodka who sent their beautiful promotion girls to help us celebrate our launch. The H-Lounge even gave us a special drink "LBDC raspberry-politan". Music, dancing, lots of food, and joyous mingling brought on-lookers from other areas of the venue streaming in to ask "Who are you guys & how can I get in?"
Finally, we enjoyed a beautiful, delicious, strawberry cake with cream cheese filling from Cakes by Kim! The two tiered white cake, with fun splashes of hot pink & black featured the LBDC logo and sealed the deal for the night. It was quite the hit!
What a night! We enrolled six new LBDC members from the party and received a stream of compliments from members & guest. The club owners, photographers and the party planner told us they were SO impressed, they've each added photos from our party to their websites. At the end of the night, wonderful comments and happy guests assured us without a doubt that LBDC East Bay has arrived!
