We hosted #CollectivelyCreatives – an evening dedicated to our diverse Bay Area collaborators! From artists Heather Day , to well-known lifestyle bloggers like Alicia Lund and Alyson Alconis , and even Hamilton The Hipster Cat's dadwe were surrounded by the inspiring energy of our community!
Check out some of the highlights below, and a special shout-out to Confetti Kitchen, Smitten Ice Cream, and Sweet & Spark vintage jewels for providing the eats, drinks and extra sparkle for the night.
Jillian Bremer of Sweet & Spark brought trunks full of vintage jewelry and offered a seriously sweet promotion to our guests! Everyone had the opportunity to select a complimentary piece of jewelry to send to a friend, and the Sweet & Spark team handled the gift-wrapping and shipping!
The décor was brought to life by two of our very own talented staff, Julianne of The Wink Blog and Kate O’Regan. Botanical greenery, hints of bright yellows, and polka dot confetti-filled balloons were just a few touches from the girls. As always, the pop-up selfie station complete with a ring light (for always-on lighting) was where all the fun happened!
Cynthia of Confetti Kitchen was the mastermind behind the food and drink, including an interactive cocktail bar where guests could create the Confetti-inspired Gin Fizz of their dreams. Local winemaker Line39 also donated wine for the party!
Eggplant and sun-dried tomato tarts were a huge hit (recipe here), and we’re still dreaming about the epic charcuterie platter. (You can get all of Cynthia's tips and tricks for quick and easy entertaining over at Confetti Kitchen!)
And because we can’t end an evening such as this without something sweet, we had local culinary wizards Smitten Ice Cream help us out with churned-to-order early gray or pistachio mint (or both!) scoops.
A huge thank you to all of those who were able to join us. We’re already busy planning our next event!
