We invite you to join us for an intimate gathering where champagne wishes and sweet dreams of decadent desserts meet for the prettiest of parties with Paper Crown tastemakers Lauren Conrad and Maura McManus. Inspired by their feminine-romantic clothing brand, the stylish bff’s are helping you celebrate chic with an a la carte dessert and wine tasting.
A Sugarcoated Spread
What’s for dessert? The hostess duo displayed an a la carte assortment of mini apple pies, meringues and cheesecake from Merci To Go, decadent truffles from Jessica Foster Confections, and mini wine-infused cupcakes and cakes from Enjoy Cupcakes — all locally-sourced favorites!
“We are all about details and thoughtfulness in design in our clothing and the same goes for hosting a special gathering. Taking extra care in details makes for a significant impact. Here are some tips:
Add romantic touches with flowers.
Get personal with place cards and menus.
Pretty dishware and drinkware is always a plus!”
– Lauren + Maura
“I love dressing up when hosting events. Wear something that makes you feel beautiful! After all, this is what this gathering is all about — embracing lovely things, your friends included!” – Lauren
“We are fortunate in that we work with our best friend! We have known each other since 5th grade, lived together after college and shared a dream to start a clothing company together. Paper Crown came to be over many late nights of designing, business planning and multiple dinner parties with our closest friends that we essentially conned into forced focus groups (with wine and dessert of course!)! Almost six years later, multiple seasons and new categories of Paper Crown, we suppose we owe our friends a dinner party in their honor!!” – Lauren + Maura
