Last evening's Venus et Fleur fête was giving major Beauty and the Beast romance vibes...
Downtown culinary hot spot Raf's turned an enchanting scene for the occasion, sprinkled with red rose buds and lit by silver candelabras with tall tapers - a very fitting tableau for the celebrity favorite floral brand's newly bloomed home collection of rose-filled vases, plates, bowls, glassware and coasters.
Ever the welcoming hosts, Venus et Fleur co-founders, Seema Bansal-Chadha and Sunny Chadha treated guests Romilly Newman, Sophie Elgort, Mary Leest, Elizabeth Kurpis, Tara Moni, Jasmin Larian Hekmat and more to a fashionable feast. Courses upon courses - caviar and creme fraiche canapes, family style plates of pasta, the restaurant's signature roast chicken and a too-delicious-to-resist chocolate torte - kept the party lingering late into the night.
