Over the next little while, I’ll be telling you guys all about the party we had down in Palm Springs at MEET MAKE DO. (Heretofore lovingly referred to as MMD.) I’ll be telling you guys every little detail including what I made, what I did, and what I ate (that’s a given). It was such a magical time and I’m so happy I was able to make it out and party with some fantastic ladies. I may have been star-struck when I arrived. I really shouldn’t be allowed out in public.
This was my first trip to Palm Springs, and although we were bombarded with rain on one of the days, I was NOT disappointed. I felt like I had flown right into that colorful neighborhood that is shown in the movie “Edward Scissorhands”. You know which one I’m referring to. And if you don’t, you’re lying.
The bloggers were given free reign on the supply shelf. Everything I wanted. Right there. Balloons. Fabric. Paint. WASHI TAPE. Tissue paper. We were just ecstatic. Some folks got to making right away. I may have gabbed more than I actually created. And for that, I must apologize to the women there.
This whole shebang was made possible by BING. I’ll be sharing more about their new rewards program (it’s baller) so keep your eyes peeled for that one!
Because what is life without a ginormous swan? I named her Odette.
And then there was the sugar. Lots of it. We’re talkin’ egg-free batter. Where the jeff was that stuff when I was pregnant?!?!?! Come on!!!
Flower Muse supplied us with hundreds of beautiful stems. It was the dreamiest of afternoons. I couldn’t have loved those petals more if I tried.
We hit a snag one of the nights and had to move to the Saguaro Hotel. Poor us, right? Just look at the color! The pool had hot pink pool towels for the guests. Just top notch.
I was so thrilled to be invited to such a getaway with such baller people. I feel like I just returned from camp and am homesick for these gals. The conversations were wonderful. That’s what I love so much about events like this. Staying up until 3am chatting about work and life and everything in between.Huge huge HUGE thank you to all ma’ ladies Melanie (You Are My Fave), Danni (Oh, Hello Friend), Chelsea (The Paper Mama), Ash (Sugar + Cloth), Erin (House of Earnest), Jenn (Scout), Brittany (The House That Lars Built), and behind-the-camera-queen Mary (Mary Costa Photography), our hosts, (Brittni, Chelsea, and Kelly!) and to BING and all the amazing sponsors who made it possible for us to live a dream for a few days!
Can’t wait to share all the lovely nitty gritty with you guys!
