VIP at Krause Berry Farms Winter Silver Belle 2017

40th Anniversary Krause Berry Farms Sparkling Raspberry Wine
I never imagined being invited to an event at Krause Berry Farms, let alone being a VIP guest to their 2017 Winter Silver Belle. Plus, receiving a special bottle of their 40th Anniversary Sparkling Raspberry Wine as a part of the invitation was so cool! It was couriered over to my home along with their signature crystal boot shot glasses that are used in their Wine Tasting Room. The event was co-hosted with Little White House & Co., a  part boutique and part cafe in Fort Langley. The space had a lovely ambience with the flickering glow of candles. Placed on the tables were ivory coloured roses which are my favourite winter flower. I was tempted to take a vase of the white roses home, but I feared if I misbehaved, I may not be invited back in the future. 

The Silver Belle had a silver and white theme, so I obviously had to go to Aritzia to get a new outfit. I went with the Wilfred Free Christine Dress in the colour Lune, a lovely light silver. It is a midi slip dress and the fabric drapes my body perfectly. I paired it with my grey marino wool cardigan which is even longer in length, Rachel Comey booties and a black wide rimmed wool hat. For a little glitter, I wore my diamond studs and a simple silver beaded bracelet from Tiffanys. 

It was a chilly night, but Krause Berry farms tented and walled the Corral and set up multiple fast heaters, so it was cozy inside. We were all greeted with a flute of their Sparkling Krause Berry Wine and pianist Ben Dunhill. Also in the Corral was Little White House's pop-up shop and Butter Photography Studios. Ben Dunhill is a seriously talented individual because not only does he play the piano, he also sings AND simultaneously plays the harmonica. 

The Krause Berry Winery, Corral and Market Place was open for the evening; therefore, there was lots of space to roam about.  I really appreciated that as it is not fun when too many bodies are cramped into a small space. It also meant I could shop for some of Krause Berry Farms' jams, preserves and fruit. 

Now the most important part, the food! Throughout the evening, servers brought around delicioues savoury morsels of food on silver platters. It is not often that I like everything being served, but the chef at Krause did an excellent job that night. More importantly, there was a lot food, so I left with a full stomach. Some of my favourites include a buttery biscuit with berry cream cheese, a turkey cranberry sandwich, and pumpkin goat cheese mousse tart. The evening ended with cute little silver star shortbread cookies and two types of macarons, a vanilla bean buttercream and salted caramel. We were also gifted with Silver Bell sugar cookies to enjoy later. 

Throughout the evening there were some giveaways; however, I did not win any goodies, but I did get to draw one of the names and the person I picked, it was her birthday, so I totally made her night! I think the item I wanted the most was the gift card to Little White House because there is some cute stuff that I really wanted. 

The only thing missing from the evening were my beloved waffles piled high with Krause's own berries and a mound of real whipped cream. My addiction to their strawberry waffles is real and I am literally counting down the days for strawberry season to return. I feel like there needs to be a stamp card for the waffles because I think I should get the 7th one free haha. 

Thank you for the lovely night Krause Berry and am flattered to be one of your VIPs! I will also be picking up another bottle of your 40th Anniversary Sparkling Raspberry Wine because it is delicious. The wine is fragrant and has a lovely natural sweetness from the raspberries. See you in the spring for more waffles.
