What: Belles and Baubles

Where: Deutsch Houston

The scoop: Houston fine jewelry retailer, Deutsch Houston, recently hosted Belles and Baubles, a wedding-themed summer kickoff party at its Highland Village showroom. The event also celebrated Deutsch Houston’s 90th year in business.

Owner Lance Deutsch greeted guests including long-time Deutsch customers, media members, and local influencers, and shared a story of Deutsch’s family roots, which stretch back to 1929, when his grandfather, Aladar Deutsch, opened his first shop in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico.

Belles and Baubles guests mixed and mingled while trying on stunning baubles for brides-to-be and summer wedding guests from designers, including Lauren K., Cartier, and Kwiat. Deutsch’s sales team provided styling tips and updates on the latest summer trends available at the store.

Partygoers enjoyed light bites, including stuffed mushrooms with salsa verde, bacon wrapped dates, bruschetta and burrata, and apples from neighboring hotspot Eloise Nichols, while sipping on The Princess Cut, the event’s signature summer sangria cocktail. Popfancy Pops provided the perfect refreshing summer treat with their “Poptail” stand, featuring a variety of flavored popsicles dunked in a glass of bubbly champagne.

The event ended with recognition of Deutsch Houston’s ongoing support of various charitable organizations throughout Houston. Lance Deutsch announced that a portion of jewelry sold during the party will be donated to Heroes for Children. (Deutsch Houston and Heroes for Children have worked together for decades in support of the nonprofit’s mission of providing financial and social assistance to families of children battling cancer.)

On their way out, guests picked up a swag bag with top-of-the-line jewelry cleaner, jewelry, and wedding-themed frosted cookies designed by Michelle Deutsch and a Deutsch vanity bag that can be used to store jewelry during summer travels.

Who: Lance Deutsch, Julie Siegel, Katherine Whaley, Jillian Goltzman, Nawal Aldandashi, Alisha Dhuka, Maiha Jamil, Danmarie Bunag, and Yvonne Guidry.
