There’s nothing better than a night full of delicious food, fresh coffee, beautiful flowers and colorfully bound books. That is how the night started on May 16th when Oxford Exchange hosted the Tastemakers event.
As you walked into Oxford Exchange you were instantly greeted by the smiling faces of the Oxford family. I then turned the corner to the bookstore where the books shown brilliantly against the dark wood shelves. Next to the bookstore sat Warby Parker and all of their trendy glasses glory.
The halls were filled with other bloggers, influencers, and Tampa vendors who were smiling as they took pictures of the bright pink and yellow macaroons.
The always exceptional Buddy Brew offered cold glasses full of their signature horchata cold brew. As a self-proclaimed coffee connoisseur, I was more than impressed. Meanwhile, TeaBella Tea company greeted us with the fresh aroma of teas and spices. They helped me create a delicious cake batter iced tea in the mini tea blending lab.
As if the night couldn’t get any better, Love Offering personalized our beautiful market totes with stunning calligraphy. And then Aesop offered their refreshing face masks and hand soaps.
Oxford Exchange kept the cocktails flowing, the cheese boards full of various cheeses and the Boat Run Oyster Co. full of oysters and champagne.
If you are a Tampa native or visiting the Tampa Bay area, you must go to Oxford Exchange. Every visit is an experience that you will never forget.
