Last week I was talking a lot about my collaboration with the San Diego Museum of Art at Balboa Park. If for some reason you missed it, you can check out the post here! The photos and outfits were inspired by art pieces at the museum and are pretty incredible, it’s worth a look, I promise! 🙂 Art Alive and Bloom Bash are an annual event put on by the amazingly talented Sara Grossman. Her vision, attention to detail, and love of both art and fashion truly came alive and I for one was blown away!
Bloom Bash at the San Diego Museum of Art x Ted Baker with Rick
To kick off Art Alive over the weekend, the SDMA had their 36th annual Bloom Bash event, and let me tell you this is THE event of the season. Anyone who’s anyone was there! The museum was transformed into a floral haven and there was no shortage of art exhibits on display throughout Balboa Park. My favorite had to be the installation by artist, HOTTEA. HOTTEA is an Emmy award-winning installation artist from Minneapolis, MN. He creates elaborate pieces of art, typically out of yarn, that he manages to work into a forgotten space and that he did!!! We were looking up all night, admiring this gorgeous work of art! I mean, how amazing is this? It was a permanent rainbow overhead and made for some pretty epic photos!Photo courtesy of Bauman Photographers
This was my first Bloom Bash and now that I know people really step up their floral game when it comes to clothing and head pieces, next year I plan on going all out!! 🙂 I opted to keep it classic with this stunning Burn Out Sleeveless Ted Baker dress. The color, fit and length just spoke to me! It’s one of those dresses that you can add layers, accessories and a variety of colors to and completely change the look. I’m all for versatility! Since my favorite color is pink, I had to incorporate it somehow. I paired strappy pink heels and this Oriental Blossom Ted Baker bag. I’ve already made this bag a permanent everyday fixture on my right shoulder! LOL This just screams Spring and happiness to me!
In addition to everyone looking incredible and the art exhibits; we were spoiled with the most amazing food from 28 of San Diego’s top restaurants, floral inspired cocktails, dancing, and multiple light performances from ping-pong, air hockey and light strobe robots!! We pretty much followed the robots around all night and had them take random boomerangs with us! They were just too much fun not to! The video above is my girlfriend Allison and I partaking in the CEG Interactive photobooth. How can I convince Rick to install once of these at our house??
Thank you again to Sarah and everyone at the SDMA for an incredible evening. I hear she’s already planning next year’s event and I promise you will not want to miss it!!
