Whooeee, it’s been a month since Alt Summit (an annual blogging conference in Salt Lake City) and I’m just now getting to the recaps. I thought I’d start with the Secret Garden party that I helped throw with Erin Mercado of Candy Kirby Designs, Alix Adams of A Ruffled Life, and Melissa Esplin of I Still Love you.
I thought it would be great if we could use the flowers that my mom and sister made for my sister’s wedding but the problem was actually getting all of them to Utah. Enter, Tai Pan Trading. Tai Pan, a home decor importer with stores in CA and UT, was so very generous to drive our floral stock up. Not only that but they provided a TON of decor for the party like ceramic gnomes and garden topiaries. You know, essential party supplies.
And finally Hilary from Dean Street Society, above, and the adorable Becki from Whippy Cake, below left, who taught me how to do the arm extension for the selfie. And my adorable sister Caitlin who came to Alt to represent the artist she works for, Timree Gold.
The night of the party we sold all of the flowers to Whitney English. She sells a beautiful planner for designers who want to use their time effectively. I need this in my life! Caitlin and I bundled them off and shipped them to NYC for her booth for NY Now and it turned out beautifully, right?!
This party was made possible with great sponsors like Tai Pan Trading
And a big shout out to the ladies who made this possible: Erin Mercado of Candy Kirby Designs, Alix Adams of A Ruffled Life, and Melissa Esplin of I Still Love you
