Menagerie and Vessel Brooklyn have teamed up for the #CREATELOVE campaign and we’re giving away the Ultimate Engagement Gift – see below for details! To all our newly engaged couples, Congratulations and we hope you win!!


#CREATELOVE Engagement Package Includes:

1. Goorin Brothers Handmade Round Black Leather Hat Box
Notes from Vessel BK: I love to reinterpret wedding traditions by using hat boxes to serve as a modern “bridal trousseau”. Trousseau by definition means the possessions, such as clothing and linens, that a bride assembles for her marriage. Throughout history, single young women all over the world have prepared for their change in marital status by accumulating a trousseau. A traditional trousseau — stored in a hope chest — included bridal accessories, jewelry, lingerie, toiletries and makeup, plus bed linens and bath towels for her new home.

From Victorian times till today, the trousseau also has consisted of brand-new outfits to see a woman through her wedding, honeymoon, and newlywed days. Oftentimes the garments in a trousseau were hand-sewn by a a mother, aunt, grandmother, or the girl herself, if skilled with a needle. This is the perfect first piece for any bride to receive during her engagement. It can be packed with all of the special items she receives, including any special pieces of jewelry, heirlooms, or accessories she would like to wear and/or have styled and photographed on her wedding day.

2. One Pair of Waterford Crystal Champagne Coupes
Notes from Vessel BK: Champagne Coupes are a gorgeous addition to any celebratory vessel. They also take on a similar tone to the hat box in terms of tradition, luxury, and a golden age of sorts. They are very Gatsby-esque and I want to keep them for myself 🙂

3. A beautiful bottle of Champagne to go with the coupes of course!
