Endless prosecco pours, pink florals galore + a golden sunset to dazzle the NYC skyline -- the perfect evening in Manhattan.
@swnwnyc offers delightful rooftop views on the 39th floor at 26th & 6th ave -- an intimate & impressive setting for the @LaGioiosa_USA + @Ethicawines event with @wineenthusiast.
Advertising director, @sherrillflaum from #wineenthusiast graciously extended the invitation. We've become fast friends + creative collaborators this year after sparking conversations around our brands & personal development goals.
Two vintage peacock chairs with an interactive photo booth stood in one corner -- passed hors d'oeuvre + bubbles were poured poolside by generous staff on the other.
Guests included beautiful people from @wineenthusiast @LaGioiosa_USA @Ethicawines @fromscratchwithmaria + nyc industry professionals & wine industry influencers (loved chatting with legallywined).
Generous pours of La Gioiosa's best flowed from magnum sized bottles for guests to enjoy. I started with La Gioiosa's Prosecco Treviso- classic, crisp + delicious... one of my personal favorites.
La Gioiosa Prosecco Rosé Millesimato - this pink bubbly offered a lovely balance of floral and fruity notes. Simple + sleek presentation -- the perfectly pink addition to your tablescape or event this summer.
Similar to the ever-so-trendy Aperol Spritz, the La Gioiosa Spritzzoso was so much fun! Spritzzoso -- not a sparkling wine but rather a flavored, wine-based cocktail was so refreshing served over ice in a wine glass.
The Spritzzoso & the semi-sweet sparkling Berry Fizz paired perfectly with the poolside view + summer sunset.
Her book beautifully weaves together deliciously fresh recipes, DIY design projects, personal stories + creative design inspo & tips. Read more on her blog.
The evening closed with truffle fries and beautiful conversations sparked with new friends. On my way out I couldn't help but follow the live jazz music pouring from the floor below.
I stood in the corner - solo - watching the band close out their set for the evening. The energy of the musicians throwing out their last little bit of pa-zazz.. the couples on the dance floor floating on love + cocktails --- I stood there and just soaked it all in. A moment in time I will cherish.
Honestly-- those are always the best moments. My new favorite moments to embrace. The unexpected. The follow your gut and just go with the flow mentality. That leads me to live jazz. Leads me to expansive creative projects & life changing opportunities. Leads me to rooftops with brands I respect + women I admire.
When we view everyday as an adventure - an opportunity to spark joy and seek the good in all situations - the abundance that can flow forward is overwhelming.
Cultivating true presence allows us to fully experience life. Cheers to more prosecco parties on rooftops where I can share my passion for mindfulness + my mission to rescue the treasures one sparkling conversation at a time. Be well, Meghan
