Dabble Party

Thursday night was the Dabble Party at Elte! There were loads of people there - as in 500+ people. Kim joked when she was speaking that they were expecting maybe 100...but really, who doesn't love Kimberley Seldon? She was the reason I subscribed to Dabble in the first place.
Kimberley is way up at the front if you can see her! She brought a great sense of humour to the event as she introduced her Dabble team.

The event offered some harty snacks (tortellini in cream sauce provided by Olivieri), some chicken skewers, and some small cheese sandwiches. The snacks were provided by different food sponsors. They also had drinks, and I unfortunately didn't take a photo of the rosemary martini which was super cute (and delicious).
The Rosemary martini was nice and fresh - it is definitely going on my list of summer drinks! They made it with rosemary-infused Skyye vodka, a spring of rosemary, a dash of club soda, and a splash of white grape juice (I think that this was the secret ingredient!).

And of course, we had the opportunity to browse Elte. I really like Elte - I used to think it was very chi chi and completely out of most people's price range, but they have a nice range of items and at the very least it is a fantastic place to go for inspiration (because some items are way up there...). Here are some things I saw that I loved.

If I had a formal living room I would love to have this style of sofa - I love the raised arms and how the whole structure is cupped with the arms/back.

Don't these look familiar?? They are my end tables in the living room! I was excited to see them at Elte (and more excited to see that I paid less!)
I love lantern light fixtures.

I've seen these coffee tables everywhere, mostly in the $800-900 price range, so I was pleasantly surprised to see this price at Elte:
$645! I thought that was a pretty good deal...

So that was the event. I didn't take opportunity of networking, primarily because there were just loads of people and it wasn't easy to move around amongst different conversations. That being said it was a fun event and good excuse to visit Elte!

Looks great. I think we have our Vancouver launch in September. Oh, I miss Elte. I loved going there and spending clients money:)

Hi Heather,

Andrew Metrick from Elte here. I left a comment maybe a week or two ago but I came across your blog again and saw that you shared some photos from the Dabble Event so I couldn't resist commenting again. I just want to thank you for sharing the evening with your readers. You don't know how much it means to me. There was such a buzz that evening and it's all thanks to those who came. I met so many amazing people. Hopefully we'll get a chance to meet at our next event. Anyway, I hope you had a good time. I know I did.

Thanks once again,
