Of all the parties we've ever hosted, our "Crafts & Cocktails" is by far our favorite. We hosted this afternoon party with our friends Emma and Elsie from A Beautiful Mess (our ultimate favorite blog!) and our best friends from Ruche (hello Beth and Mai!). And luckily, we had the prettiest venue - the Seychelles Shoes showroom (it's heaven on earth!).
So what did we all do instead of bunch up in the rooms? We set up five fun DIY booths: Seychelles hosted a shoe clip DIY (to die-for), OPI taught guests how to do nail art!, Goodie Girls Cupcakes introduced guests to some professional cupcake frosting techniques, Ruche showed people how to make clothing hangers extra special with strips of fabric (can easily be done at home with old clothes even!), and Emma & Elsie showed how to make bowtie clips (which were rocked by both guys and girls!). Then we hosted the ultimate photo booth...the Impossible Project Polaroid booth, which made quite the souvenir.
Each guest took home a glassine bag decorated with Wishy Washi tape and sealed with an Erin Condren label. Inside each bag were a Sugar Dayne cookie, Le Bon Garcon caramels, Ruche gift cards, an OPI bottle from the Selena Gomez collection, a Mirabella lip gloss, and everyone took home polka-dotted oven mitts from Sugar Baby Aprons. Of course, we have to treat our guests right!
