Dog Days Of Summer Event At Henri Bendel

July 20, 2008

A month ago, I received an invitation from Ariel, a buyer at Henri Bendel, to participate in their week long event, The Dog Days of Summer. Yes, it’s that Henri Bendel in New York, the famed department store for all things uber chic and fabulous! Since New York is a mecca for high fashion and dog lovers, Henri Bendel will turn its atrium into a “doggie playground” for a week (7/29 – 8/4), and will feature products from a handful of pet manufacturers. I am beyond excited and honored that they chose Room Candy to be one of the vendors!

Here’s a sneak peek at the select Room Candy dog toys that will be featured at the event.

Henri Bendel Kit 1: These are our donut toys and our plush vanilla ice cream toy wrapped in a crisp cello bag and tied off with a pink ribbon.

Notice the hand cut pinking edge on the top of the bag! We’re all about details.

Kit 2: Cake set with our Strawberry Shortcake toy, Triple Truffle Torte toy and Raspberry Almond Sandwich toy.

I love doilies, and I think the addition of a doily on the bottom of the cake toys really completes the look of the packaging.

These hexagon shaped containers are the perfect size for these three toys. While I was shopping for packaging options, I considered packaging these in sushi boxes and even ice cream sundae boxes, but the height of the boxes were too short for our puffy toys!

Kit 3: Cupcake toys galore!

Don’t these containers remind you of a bee’s honeycomb?

I just love cupcakes! I actually commissioned a bakery to do real buttercream cupcakes fashioned like our cupcake toys last month for a photo shoot. Check out this picture of the real cupcakes and our toy cupcakes side by side.

I am so craving a cupcake right now!

You can read more about the event on the Henri Bendel website. Do stop by the event with your dog if you’re in NYC! Special thanks also to Ariel, Lindsey and Alexa for all your help in coordinating the logistics for this event. This is definitely the highlight of my year!


Room Candy – always yummy!
