Our First Feature Party!

Relaxed. Sophisticated. Free booze. These aren't typically words you'd think of when describing a vendor event in Des Moines, but we're looking to change that.

At our first Feature Party we'll be highlighting a handful of amazing Des Moines vendors in a relaxed environment with signature cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and music. We're inspired to make you forget those awkward bridal events you've been to that feel more like a career fair than the cool party you'd actually want to attend. With Feature Parties, we want to naturally highlight the best area vendors in a cocktail-style atmosphere that feels relaxed, not stuffy. We want to encourage people to explore unique Des Moines spaces casually with friends before the weekend officially begins. Most of all, we want to allow guests to relax while trying fun new cocktails and food without the awkward, salesy environments we're all so used to.

Whether you're planning a wedding, looking to meet new industry professionals, or are just wanting to check out a cool Des Moines venue and grab a few drinks, we'd love to see you at our first party this Thursday! We'll be featuring cocktails, wine, appetizers, music, dessert, florals and more from the following Des Moines vendors at this debut event:

FOOD  /  Occasions Catering, The Radish, & Taste! To Go
COCKTAILS  /  Jeff Naples of Beard Behind the Bar
MUSIC  /  Limelight Entertainment
FLORALS  /  As You Wish Floral & Artisan Floral & Events by Saley
DESSERT  /  Let Them Eat Cake

During the party, we'd like to invite you to share your experience on social media by using the hashtags #avenufeatureparty and #avenuatsticks. We'll also be posting from the event on Instagram (@avenudsm) as well as Snapchat (add us! @avenudsm!). Make sure to snap along!

Following the event, we'd love for you to head over to Juniper Moon with us for more drinks and fun.

Can't wait to see you all on Thursday!
