Finally! The reason for our NYC trip! June & January along with a bunch of other wonderfully talented shops gathered together in Brooklyn for the City Kid pop-up shop. Because so many flew in for the event, June & January along with Munchkin wanted to throw a thank you after-party for the vendors! This is where Small Fry came in. We were so stoked to host and put the evening together for these amazing artists. [Personalized napkins via Zurchers ($15 for 100, such a steal!) // NYC Skyline Pop-out via Petite Collage]
Here is a peek at the loveliness of the night. We will say hosting out of our element in an unfamiliar city was no easy task, we won’t bore you with the tale, but we are so grateful to both June & January and Munchkin for working with us and their patience as we navigated this event far from home!Let’s set the scene. Do you remember the blood moon eclipse last month? That was our party night! We had the most beautiful roof top venue with the kind of weather dreams are made of. Those two elements alone made the night absolute magic. Next the food. You know how we feel about Executive Chef Marco and Private Chef Aubrey Niccoli, the husband and wife team we’ve worked with at this Munchkin event. They are such imaginative talented chefs and they always blow us away! We did a take on our Munchkin at Heart party and had them reimagine kid favorites in a gourmet way. Of course this time we had a NYC twist.
Rootbeer Float shooters: Pretzel pastrami sliders with homemade pickles and chips.Mini Hand-breaded corndogs with garlic fries and aioli dip. Marco shared this recipe here if you’re interested! Lobster Roll Banh-Mi:A deconstructed burrata and yeggie salad:And of course swag galore from Munchkin, and a few more NYC themed gifts we’re sharing here!And last but for sure not least, the guests! One of our favorite things about running Small Fry is working with such amazing brands. Lots are parents just like us, working toward giving their families a better life. Coincidentally we met so many wonderful brands we had already worked with over the last few years here. Such a rewarding gift to put names, and amazing products that we love, to faces. Here are some, and you can catch all the guests in this Facebook album here.
