Last Saturday we invited friends and family to come check out our new space before furnishing it. It’s been such a whirlwind since signing the lease that it didn’t feel real until I looked around at a room full of people and realized they were in my studio. Like my name is on the door studio. Excuse me while I jump up and down 1,000,000 more times. Anyway, here’s a mini recap in case you missed the Instastory!
Above all, I wanted the space to be colorful and to feel happy. Thanks to Flower Muse, I was able to set up a tulip bar where all of the guests could make mini bouquets to take home when they left. I’ve never done that for a party before, but it was such a hit that I will certainly be doing it again in the future!
The event took place on a Saturday morning, so helloooo mimosas. I filled one pitcher (from Crate & Barrel) with OJ and orange slices and then guests could pour their own champagne ratio. The other dispenser had mint and cucumber, or as I wouldn’t stop calling it, spa water. There’s something so damn fancy about having cucumber in your water, am I right?
Sadly not pictured were the other 400 balloons I blew up and the trays of mini donuts. The downside of hosting/decorating/photographing is that at some point, you can’t do it all if you want to have any fun. And since this was such a big event in my life and my career, I decided to set work aside for the afternoon and enjoy friends and a mimosa or two.. or five… or seven.
So here’s to more parties, more life, and to more fun! Also stay tuned because a makeover post as well as a workshop schedule will be coming soon!
