happy monday friends!
how was everyones weekend? we were lucky enough to spend ours [that was ALMOST in the triple digits by the way] lounging most of our days in a neighbors pool:) oh, the perks that come along with dog sitting while they were away! it was also the first weekend in a long... LONG time that i've actually had to myself. I had a few orders to finish up, but other than that, my weekend was work free. besides being poolside, i got a lot of projects done around the house that were long over due. it feels like i'm finally caught up on, life i guess.
so, to start off the week, i thought i would finally share our pictures from confetti lab! i know i already gave you the low down, so i will just let you enjoy the details that ed from up imagery captured beautifully for us that day.
streamers and lights created a fluttering canopy for day, and a twinkling ceiling for our outdoor venue at night.
several lounge areas were placed around the party for guests to mingle, sip and eat. i displayed the treats that were generously donated, bouganvilla "borrowed" from an overgrown tree of a neighbor [i considered it a favor as i trimmed a spot for them], vintage frames, and various bell jars and apothecary jars displaying air plants.
whats a summer bash without a refreshing cocktail? tres sietes was the perfect match for the margarita recipes i had gathered.
i thought we'd give our guests a little activity to
1. keep them occupied for a bit [i know, because margaritas, tacos, cupcakes, churros, and shopping is not enough]
and 2. teach them a new skill they could take home and use at their own shindig
masking tape garland and streamer cocktail stirrers [made with glue dots] were a nice match for summer entertaining ideas.
shopping! who can resist some hand crafted goodness?
we had lauren elise crafted, blair britt events, dolly's cotton candy, me: a fabulous fete, and stella & dot! it was a girls dream... sweets, pretty decor, and jewels, all in one place.
the party ended with our fabulous gift bags. here were just a few of the goodies guests got to take home.
a confetti favor by a fabulous fete. s'mores kit by lauren elise. and the very handy, individual cupcake containers by the posh box.
and the ladies that made it happen!
you still have a little summer left to put these ideas to use!
i hope you enjoyed all of the details from confetti lab. we sure had a blast creating it.
