Roses and Rosé: Winter Rose Garden Party

Last night I attended La Nuit En Rose in NYC. La Nuit En Rose is a Wine and Food Festival dedicated to Rose Wine. Held at a secret warehouse in Chelsea (we were emailed the address just a few days before the event), the space resembled a rose infused garden. The main dining room ushered us into decadence with romantic lighting glowing from table lanterns and string lights and roses and rose bushes strategically placed at various points throughout the space. As promised, we were in the middle of a warm rose garden party despite the cold February weather outside. Guests were seated in the middle of the warehouse and surrounded by at least a dozen wineries to our wine tasting delight. My friend nicknamed the space "rose wine heaven."
How could I not agree?

While we indulged in wine tasting we also enjoyed delectable bites from local chefs and restaurants. The plantain salad pictured below was one of my personal favorites.

What I Wore

The invitation instructed us to wear white or pink in line with the rose garden party theme. I wore a Missguided white dress that I paired with a black fringe blazer and booties. I'm currently having a love affair with Missguided and recently purchased this dress. I plan to wear the dress in the warmer months without the blazer and tights. Don't you just love a versatile piece?

I had an amazing time. For upcoming La Nuit En Rose events in your city, check out their calendar of events.
