After a wonderful afternoon in the InHouse showroom, we headed up to the John Saladino showroom where Rue Magazine gave a wonderful toast to the end of a wonderful What’s New What’s Next event and the launch of Rue. It was fun catching up with new and old friends – I couldn’t think of a better way to end a eventful trip to NYC.
Talk about a magical night. I’ve never in my life felt more proud, loved and honored to be part of such an amazing team. Everyone that came to celebrate with us, welcomed us with open arms and were so supportive about our leap into the publishing world – it felt so good. I know you’ve seen countless blog posts about Rue Magazine’s launch party (like here, here and here) but I just had to share one of my favorite photos from the night – it’s of the team before the party got hopping.
Last Wednesday Rue was honored to be part of New York Design Center’s – What’s New What’s Next event. Rue’s amazing food columnist, Marissa Lippert, put together a mouth watering cooking demo with seasonal apple dishes – I can’t even pick a favorite, they were all delicious. You can find the recipes in the premiere issue of Rue (page 62).
A huge thank you needs to go out to Jacqueline of Merci New York and Kathleen of Kat Flower for the beautiful tabletop display (it’s my fall dinner party inspiration) and the gorgeous flower arrangements – we couldn’t have done it without you ladies.
If you want to find out more about the New York trip, Crystal covered the entire week. Plus, you’ll get to see a lovely picture of me waving goodbye to her at 3am as Anne and I get into our black town car.
A big thank you goes out to the New York Design Center for welcoming the Rue team with open arms. I’ve never met such an amazing group of ladies. You made our launch party become a reality and it was truly amazing!
