Yesterday morning we hosted “Breakfast in Bed,” a breakfast for some of New York’s top food bloggers and food lovers, in Soho at Coco-Mat, a bedding store featuring sleep products made from all natural materials.
The food bloggers in attendance included @I_Actually_Ate_That, @BeFatBeHappy, @Food, @JeaniusNYC, @PlateinProgress, @TheJudyLab, @UnbuttoningPants, @CheatDayEats, @HungryObsession, @NomNomNYCGirls, @GlutenFreeFollowMe, @NYCFoodieFinder, @HiddenGemofNYC, @MattBruck, and @GratuitousOddity. It was fun watching all the bloggers use their individual techniques to capture the perfect shot for their blogs and Instagram accounts, using the hash tags #BreakfastInBed and #WakeUpWithFairweather.
All the guests enjoyed a breakfast feast courtesy of our generous sponsors, while testing out Coco-Mat’s comfortable beds. Pain d’Avignon provided an array of delicious breads and spreads, a variety of croissants and a wonderful quiche.
For the sweets lovers among us, Sprinkles provided us with a great selection of cupcakes, including red velvet, black and white and pistachio. In addition, there were many beverages to choose from, including Coco-Mat’s freshly squeezed juices, Topping Rose House’s rosé, Franciacorta’s sparkling wine and Stumptown’s freshly brewed ice coffee. Corso Coffee also provided us with yummy bombalini, traditional Italian doughnuts. As an added bonus, Lurk Beauty, a perfumery that uses only essential oils, provided us with the full line of their perfume oils and EDTs.
As everyone bid farewell to old and new friends, the guests received another pleasant surprise – gift bags! Inside of Coco-Mat’s mini totes, the guests received copies of the Summer 2016 print edition of Fairweather, coupons for a complimentary coffee from Corso Coffee, lavender-scented sachets from Coco-Mat and tasty Justin’s nut butter squeeze packs. One last piece of exciting news… we are already beginning to plan a part two of the event. See you there!
