Good morning, y’all!
It’s Friday!! Not only is it Friday, but the sun is shining AND it’s above freezing in Chicago (for what feels like the first time in months!)
Last week, we got to help with such a fun event!! Lifestyle blogger Brittney Ann (of Hosting and Toasting) came to us to help make her “Coffee and Cookies” event…a little swankier! You may remember Brittney Ann (BAC) from her “Favorite Things” Christmas party that we helped with back in December. This time, BAC was hosting a meet-and-greet in Washington, D.C. for none other than Carly from The College Prepster! We’ve been fortunate enough to know Carly for awhile now, so it was SO fun for us to collaborate with BAC for this event!
Like all parties, we started with the invitation. Because this event was honoring Carly (the queen of all things preppy), we stuck with a classic navy and pink design. Since both girls are bloggers, the invitation was strictly electronic, and was shared with readers on both of their blogs!
After the RSVP’s started rolling in, the real fun began…party swag! With over 200+ people expected to attend, BAC hosted the coffee and cookie’s event at a local Georgetown coffee bar. To turn the coffeeshop into a real College Prepster party, we designed lots of pink and navy party swag including napkins, banners, and of course…straws featuring both Carly and Brittney Ann’s blog logos. Combined with the adorable cookies BAC had made, and all of Carly’s adorable and stylish readers…it ended up being one swanky party!!
The guest of honor…Carly! Otherwise known as The College Prepster.
Hostess, Brittney Ann, with her guest of honor.
N&L party swag, including an Instagram sign for the party! Guests were encouraged to tag #coffeeandcookies and #nicoandlala for all Instagram and Twitter posts from the event. Since we couldn’t attend this fabulous event, we had so much fun searching the hashtags afterwards! Here’s a peek at some of our favorite shots!
Thank you again to Brittney Ann for asking us to help with this fabulous event and providing us with some fabulous pictures! Have a great weekend and TGIF!
