Take Time to Toast

Party Recap

Take Time to Toast was an event hosted by Danielle Gibson Events to take time to honor and thank (*toast*) the girl bosses that work with us! The party is a way to show “How to Celebrate Employees”, “How to Say Thank You to your Girl Bosses”, or "The Best Way to Say Thank You!".

The concept for "Take Time to Toast" came from the idea that we all work so hard, but we don't take the time to toast ourselves or each other for that hard work. Being in the events industry, we are constantly throwing parties for clients but never for our own staff. The time has come in our book! This concept should be across all businesses, not just the events Danielle Gibson Events decided to lead the way in celebrating those around us!

This Take Time to Toast event was for 8 very special women who partnered with DGE on our most recent corporate retreat. The retreat was a big deal for some high profile clients and these ladies worked their butts off to help everything go off without a hitch. What better way to say thank you than we rosé (both the wine and the color), delicious bites, and picture-perfect photo-ops? We had tons of vendors and sponsors that made this event come to life such as our photographer @megsmithphotography, our florist @scarlettandgrace, and our caterer @fogcutter_sf - who created our idea of "bespoke bowls" perfectly. The Bespoke Bowls allowed our guests to pick their base, protein, and toppings and basically create their own lunch. We kept everything light and fresh. Below are all the other vendors who donated items to us for the party, as well as our 8 attendees.
