1-800-Baskets Blogger Event

Here are more photos from the 1-800-Baskets blogger event that I recently attended at their Melrose Park, Illinois headquarters. We made our own 1-800-Baskets in the design center where they had storyboards and aisles full of food to go into the baskets. Would love to have hung out in the design center for a few more hours. Celebrity event planner Shawn Rabideau of Bravo's "Bethenny Getting Married" gave us tips on entertaining at home and decorating throughout the event. Brand leaders from the different 1-800-Flowers divisions -, Cheryl's, Fannie May, The Popcorn Factory, and gave short presentations about their brands. Reps from, DesignPac, and GFGB were also in attendance. We tasted cheeses and wines from and Fannie May chocolates in the kitchen. Then, went home to enjoy our treats. I asked Ann Littlefield of how many cheeses to buy if I am entertaining for 6 adults. She recommended serving two to three cheeses - goat cheese, brie, and Carmody (an artisanal cow's milk cheese made from jersey cows).

Disclosure: I received gift bags from 1-800-Baskets
