EAT DRINK CREATE

EATDRINKCREATE

You may remember hearing about a little party called Eat Drink Create… hosted by artsocial and The Proper Pinwheel at West Elm. Yeah? A few times? I’m so excited to finally share the details! Omigosh make sure you scroll down to the video Evergreen Lane Productions put together for us…! It captures the event so perfectly.

When Lexy and I first started planning this event, I really only had one goal: get awesome creative people together + have fun. Okay that’s two goals… but I’m happy to say we accomplished both. High five! There are so many amazing creative people in Colorado. You all deserve more parties.

Is there anything better than mini donuts, popcorn, jarritos, and diy fringe lanterns?? Nope. I didn’t think so. That’s what happens when two bloggers who love sugar and colorful diys come together to plan an event… I couldn’t have asked for a better co-host!

… and I definitely couldn’t have asked for better guests. Holla to the amazing + talented ladies who came out that night!! Big hugs to everyone.

Can I just stop for a sec and say, Kate Donaldson takes the BEST photos… mad skillz, yo. Check out Lexy’s recap for even more photo awesomeness!

We put a lot of attention into the details. Creating rad photo ops for everyone was very important to me… I take my instagrams srsly, ya hear. I had SO much fun going through the photos on the #eatdrinkcreate instagram feed!

Oh West Elm, I love you. Huge thank you to everyone at West Elm in Cherry Creek for having us! The space was perfect. The whole crew down there is uh-mazing. Not gonna lie, I was secretly shopping during the event… I mean, hanging garden? Must have.

Guys. The swag bags. Ban.do was ridiculously awesome and donated a pom pom flower for each guest!! Whaaaat. You guys know how much I love my ban.do flair, I was beyond excited. I still am.

Wait, the swag bags got even better. First, I learned that the incredibly talented Lemon Jitters was contributing hello magnets + chalkboard tags *happy dance*. THEN Consumer Crafts kicked things up a few hundred notches by donating enough craft goodies to keep everyone creating for months. Seriously. Amazing. Thank you.

If that wasn’t enough awesomeness, Artifact Uprising blew us away by offering a 40 page 8.5×8.5 softcover photo book to one of our lucky guests!! I was stoked, I’m a huge fan. We randomly selected a winner… you ready? *Drum roll* congrats to Tara of Modern Maven!! Woot woot! Lexy will be in touch.

Omigosh okay, time for the video… huge thank you to Annabelle Mintz of Evergreen Lane Productions for creating this video for us! She’s so talented, I can’t stand it.

Offline events, getting together in person, chillin’ IRL? That’s the good stuff. The next Eat Drink Create is in the works, friends. I can’t wait!!

+ ban.do
+ Consumer Crafts
