Masquerade Gala: A Styled New Year’s Eve Party at Barnett on Washington
If you go to New Year’s Eve party often enough, you might feel that they are just more of the same. The ladies over at Saint Louis Cake Artists Collaboration have come up with some awesome NYE party ideas. With help from other amazing vendors in the St. Louis Area, they put them all together in this “Masquerade Gala” at Barnett on Washington. And I had the pleasure of documenting the whole thing and (eating some of the best cakes I’ve ever had afterwards)!!!
Check it out and be inspired! Just look at all those cakes: you know your sweet tooth wants to! By the way, the stunning centerpiece was (the first cake you’ll see) a collaborative creation by all four participating cake artists.
You won’t be surprised by some traditional elements in this styled New Year’s Eve party: New Year’s resolutions, good food, and great company. But these super talented lady bosses also managed to keep it both fun and classy. Even the guys had a great time in the Cigar Lounge being dapper and all. Barnett on Washington, the gorgeous, newly renovated wedding venue in midtown St. Louis, couldn’t have been a better place for this Masquerade Gala!
Special shoutout to Deva Williamson of The Lace Cake and Cash Murray of 876 Cakes for organizing this, to Shannon Lemp of Blush Events for bringing everything together so beautifully, and to all the other vendors who have made this possible!
This is the kind of party I know I wish to be invited to! I mean, to actually attend the party, just to photograph it. So if you’re feeling inspired and would like to host the next New Year’s Eve party, be sure to send me an invitation! If not, I’ll be there anyways!
