In addition to delicious cocktails and yummy appetizers, I had the chance to speak with celebrity party planner & lifestyle expert Shawn Rabideau, who was on-hand to debut the new collection and share summer party tips.

After meeting Shawn, I was excited to hear all about the new cocktails inspired floral designs. Shawn shared that it was time a fun and creative floral gift was made available. Giving the gifts of flowers happens for so many reason and sometimes just for fun.

For the summer so many people love to entertain and get together so the new Happy Hour Collection fits perfect whether as a decorating center piece or a gift idea.
