The Khoollect birthday party: celebrating our first year in style

Looking out over the sparkling Thames from the the stylish surrounds of London’s Blueprint Café, Team Khoollect was joined by a #khoollection of wonderful people from its community.

Sipping on champagne and chamomile tea cocktails (Blueprint’s original ‘G & Teas’), feasting on delicious canapés and tucking in to a fabulous chocolate mousse cake decorated with berry bark, the team and guests celebrated a year since Khoollect’s launch.

Topping the cafe’s tables in beautiful peach-and-green hues were fresh flowers from Bloom & Wild. The lovely London-based team hand-tied gorgeous bunches in preparation for the event.

The attentive Blueprint team kept glasses topped and food coming, as guest relaxed on the terrace. Editor-in-Chief Rachel Khoo also Skyped in from abroad to say ‘hello’ and to thank our community for their support over the past year.


And, to end the evening, gift bags filled with fantastic treats from the Khoollect community were handed out. Guests were treated to beverages from Square Root Soda, champagne and raspberry marshmallows from The Marshallowist, peanut butter from Pic’s Peanut Butter, organic soaps from Little Soap Company and sweet maps from Herb Lester.
