This French Inspired Fête Will Leave You Dreaming of St. Tropez

Erin Lepperd

Any party that ends with mini crepes in to-go boxes is a good one in our book. Right?!? For a 10th Anniversary celebration, Twenty Three Layers masterminded a fête that embodies the beauty of St. Tropez. From french infused sips, to monstera leaves and lemon centerpieces by Van Vilet & Trap and larger than life Brigitte Bardot vintage photographs dotting 501 Union, this party is giving us major French Riviera vibes. Get a front row seat to all the pretty details snapped by Bashful Captures right here. From Jessica Boskoff, CEO + Founder of Twenty Three Layers, a NY-based Event Planning and Design firm... Filled with gorgeous monstera leaves, pink vintage furniture, black + white photos of Brigitte Bardot and Hotel Byblos – this beautiful 10th Anniversary celebration was definitely one for the books! Reminiscent of their years spent in Saint – Tropez, we wanted to create something magical for our clients. And this theme was right up our alley. When it comes to design we draw inspiration from our clients, the venue, our surroundings, anything that inspires us! 501 Union is such an incredible space, so much character to work with and a great flow for the evening. I immediately began creating a backdrop in my mind, laying out furniture while playing with the beautiful bright and crisp colors of St Tropez. As guests entered the room, they were greeted with twinkling lights above highlighting the nights sky. Classic french cocktails were offered to guests by servers wearing Mariniere shirts and a friendly smile. As the curtains were pulled back, the dining room was revealed. Long wooden tables filled with greenery and fresh lemons lined the center of the table. The smell of Tastings delicious food filled the room, beautiful big baskets of Crudite, just like Club 55, was a nod to St Tropez. All the French classics served. It didn’t take long for the party to actually start! In true St Tropez fashion the party moved to the nightclub dubbed Le Cave du Roy. They danced the night away as they nibble on late night crepes and mini tart tropiezians in custom to – go boxes. Absolutely magical!
