Ladies Night Out in the Channel District
On Thursday, October 11, magic was sprinkled throughout the Channel District. Toast On The Town’s Christal Kotchman-Giardina hosted her first ever Ladies Night Out Pop Up Dinner and it was delicious & full of amazing collaboration. I’m so proud to have had members like Taylor Prater of Made Coffee, Stephanie Newton of Posie’s Flower Truck, Jacqueline Luhrs of LS Organics, & Julie Curry of Bake’n Babes share their talents and be celebrated for creating something great in Tampa Bay. It was such a fun & proud night! Shout outs to Danielle Evans of Don Me Now & Bubbly Barchique, The Denard Span Foundation, Kate Ryan Linens, Republic National, The Fitzgerald, uDream Events, & to every boss babe who attended the event.
Take a peek at our timelapse video and of the photos below by Sam Silver. There’s also a full event highlights video that will be ready for sharing soon, so stay tuned!

This 39 second video is just a tiny peek into the many moving parts and hard work that went into the Ladies Night Out Pop Up. It’s a ton of fun to see the event really start to come together! Take a peek.
How gorgeous is this tablescape?! Christal of Toast On The Town finished the design with a pink sequin runner and soft pink napkins.
These florals are breathtaking, am I right?! Stephanie of Posie’s Flower Truck created beautiful floral pieces for our lovely table, guest check in, & the bar at Bubbly Barchique.
Guests received a tasty welcome drink at Bubbly Barchique once they arrived. Did you know you can sip on bubbly while you shop at Don Me Now? True story!
So excited about how the Ladies Night Out totes turned out! Love seeing all our brands together under one cute message.

The Final Course: Strawberry Champagne Cupcakes by Bake’n Babes and cold brew by Made Coffee! Made recently launched 3 new flavors: Chai, Con Leche, and Chocolate. Julie’s cupcakes were heavenly— the icing, filling, & cake itself were perfectly flavored! Made Coffee is available at The Hall on Franklin, as well as many other restaurants and coffee shops around Tampa Bay. They’re also at Publix!
