Nice breakfast club at Bilbao
A few months, with the beginning of spring, The Nice Breakfast Club organized a CDBMeets in Bilbao. If it sounds a little bit gibberish to you, I explain you … it is a creative space where breakfast pictures are shared on Instagram using the hashtag #elclubdeldesayunobonito. Anna, Floureta in the virtual world, is the creator of this wonderful community which also organizes meetings in different cities to share breakfast.
I still remember the day I received the newsletter in which Anna told the next meeting would be in my city. It was some time since I followed her and to come to Bilbao, was an opportunity I could not miss; I really love these encounters where you meet nice people, “devirtualize” instagram friends … so I marked April 2nd on my calendar with a fluorescent marker.
A few days before, when I was opening my mailbox to throw publicity, I suddenly saw a letter with my name, there it was … the pretty event invitation that Patricia from Julietta Limón had designed. This was just an appetizer of what was to come and gave us some clues to identify which could be the style of breakfast. The invitation was modern with a minimalist touch and hipster elements such as marble and deer in geometric figure, straight black and white lines, besides the rose quartz (I told you here it would be one of the color trend this 2016).
Finally that Saturday arrived and I could not be more eager to this meeting in Bilbao. The place chosen was Mr. Marvelous, a bar located on Heros street and that has an industrial decor with lots of brick, metal, solid wood beams … the perfect space for the friendly atmosphere they wanted to recreate. As wedding planner, I also see it ideal for a pre-wedding cocktail with pintxos or a brunch.
Upon arrival, we all started timidly to greet and say who we were, while lively Marta Etxebarria, a lovely girl who makes beautiful wedding photos, caught us in grafanti behind the lens.
Just entering Mr. Marvelous, the amazing sweet table prepared by Martina de Zuricalday. If you follow me, you know I work a lot with them because they never fail; their sweets are delicious and they have a unique affection and attention. On this table, the classic mini butter buns from Bilbao or the toffee and chocolate mini brownie, one of their specialties. Anna decorated it with care using a hexagonal marble bases and singular items such as a phone or and old camera.
This does not end here, this intimate breakfast for 12 people, also had its own seating plan. It was a great surprise when we sat down to breakfast and each one had a personalized mug with her name on her place, with the design of the event, the work of Ms. Limón.
The breakfast served by Mr. Marvelous boys, who are also charming, almost did not move us from there until lunchtime. A good example of how rich and well we eat in the north was the exquisite range eggs with ham. They also prepared a juice, specially requested by Anna, with orange, apple, carrot and a pinch of ginger.
And what would a wedding planner say along with delicious food is needed at a table? Flowers, always, yeah! Anna counted on Fiore to create a very green breakfast table, as the north, with ferns, moss and succulents, which have also been a must at weddings this year. They were accompanied by glass bells with LED lights inside that gave a very warm touch to breakfast.
When we finished breakfast, we had a surprise by Coconó, a studio from Logroño the makes beautiful bridal headdresses and crowns for brides and wedding guests. They brought some flower crowns and we tried them and made lot of pictures; you know that in these events, mobile and camera are always at hand, to show you it all on Instagram.
There were a lot of little details and gifts, in addition to the so cute mug, a surprise by Anna, which already stands at my desk, Martina de Zuricalday gave us a box with macarons that as you imagine did not last an assault .. Sofia from Coconó also presented us with a white little cage with preserved flowers. And finally, Cristina, an assistant from Santander, surprised us all with a sheet that she herself had drawn, so kind detail of her!
So I left there, full of things, but the best thing I took with me was, without a doubt, to meet the girls and have a very nice time with them, I think it is the tastiest of these encounters, to meet new people, to put faces to others, tell us each others of our projects, our concerns … Millions of thanks to Anna for all her love and enthusiasm, shown every day with the Nice Breakfast Club and in these CDBMeets. And all the girls who made that morning more special if possible: Elena, Olatz, Izaskun, Bea, Olatz and Eider from Oli&Moli, Cristina and her mom, Patricia and Nuria.
