I could hardly wait to share the pics from our most recent adventure! The Gold Cup Race is Virginia’s big Derby, bringing out all of Washington, Virginia and Maryland in their biggest hats and brightest preppy best for a day of equestrian excitement. We had the pleasure of working with Becky’s Fund this year, designing two sweet displays for the general admission and VIP tents they host. Becky’s Fund is a national non-profit organization focused on domestic and dating violence awareness and education. The Gold Cup “Investing in Hope” event was the 6th Annual Fundraiser organized by Becky and her team and draws a crowd of over a thousand to raise money, mix and mingle.
The VIP dessert bar we designed was filled with decadent desserts. Cake bites, chocolate truffles, cinnamon rolls, donuts, shortbread cookies and lots more spread across a yellow and black themed table setting with a beautiful yellow floral centerpiece.
Glassine bags were labeled with Becky’s Fund logo. Popcorn bags wrapped in yellow and green gingham filled planter tiers at each end of the table.
For the General Admission table we built a six foot horse topiary as the centerpiece and draped him with Becky’s Fund logo. Yellow and green candies filled glass apothecary jars and displays of cookies, desserts and sweets planked each end. Baskets of candy packs with business cards and Becky’s logo on the table were quickly scooped up by guests. We made 1000 packs and they completely gone within a few hours!
Meeting new people, noshing on the spread Becky’s Fund put out and sipping mint juleps!
We had so much fun and took lots and lots of photos! Big thanks to our Sweet Assistants Lexie and Alexandra for being fabulous promotional models!
