On October 20, 2022, my husband and I attended the Starlight Soiree event in Austin, Texas thanks to Stuff to Do in Austin.
Starlight Soiree – The Domain Austin 2022
After entering a giveaway on the Stuff to Do in Austin Instagram page, I won two tickets to Starlight Soiree The Domain. This event was The Domain’s biggest celebration of the season with al fresco dining, dancing, and more.
A portion of the ticket sales benefitted Ballet Austin.
Complementary Valet Parking
Guests were able to pull right up to the party thanks to complimentary valet parking nearby between the Museum of Ice Cream and True Food Kitchen.
In addition to the fun selfie station, there were all kinds of fun activities and surprises. Move aside koozies – there was no chintzy swag. Kendra Scott was giving away personalized candles. Burlap & Swine had BYO mini bouquets. And let’s not forget about the food and wine tastings and live music.
Food, Beer, and Wine Tastings
Guests enjoyed a curated tasting menu of appetizers, entrees, and desserts from Cru Food & Wine Bar, Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, North Italia, and Maggiano’s Little Italy.
All evening long, guests 21+, sipped on a handpicked selection of wines, beer, and non-alcoholic beverages.
Throughout the night there were amazing giveaways from the biggest brands at The Domain including Kendra Scott, Spa Reveil, Neiman Marcus, Tory Burch, Lilly Pulitzer, a Balenciaga bag, and more.
The premier party band, Plush, busted out hits from several decades. Of course, everyone sang along to the great rendition of Journey’s Small Town Girl. Several times during the night, the band members joined the celebration on the dance floor.
What a great time!
