That Time We Taught Macrame & Drank Bubbly Together.

Last week Jenn, Erin and I had the opportunity to host a crafting workshop in the fabulous Pop Up event space at Pacific Place.  Everything came together, albeit a bit by the skin of our teeth, beautifully and I was so excited to see the evening unfold.  It was lovely.

A chic palette of pink and copper, flickering candles and darling florals, all by Erin, framed an evening of macrame crafting.  We noshed on the yummiest nibbles (still thinking about the marinated grilled artichokes and extra fancy breadsticks) and sweet macarons, while the bubbly flowed.  French tunes played in the background as conversation flowed and knots were tied.  Our vision of gathering together and being creative in an inspiring space actually happened, and although I ended the evening in need of a foot massage and a nap, I was over the moon.

Our event was sold out, which I can't even believe, I am so grateful to all the women who attended.  The energy in the room was so good, such a great group of people.  This is our hope.  And I TOTALLY breathed a sigh of relief when macrame plant holders began to unfold, the project we had envisioned was actually happening.  Which really means we did the directions right!  and cut the rope long enough...and don't even get me started on finding wooden beads with big enough center holes. 

So many good learning experiences for the next time.

Get ready for photo overload, there's just too many good moments, I had to share them all...

One of my favorite details...guests were greeted with a hand-lettered champagne glass, best way to get a party started and to keep track of who's who, making everyone feel welcome.

One of the wonderful touches in the Pacific Place Pop Up Space, the Love Lock Tradition, once the lock is placed in honor of your loved one, the key is thrown away to symbolize an unbreakable love.

We wanted to the space to feel like a chic Parisian flat, Erin did a wonderful job bringing our vision to life with our lounge area.  Complete living room envy right here, all these items are available for your next event, just saying.

The crudite plate of my dreams, and those breadsticks, am I right?  They were as fun as they were delicious.  Food by Il Fornaio 

Macarons by Trophy Cupcake, my favorite are the salted dark chocolate.  Craving one now.  Darnit.



Shout out to Jenn who drove around the city tracking down last minute necessities and Erin for creating the tablescapes, florals and covering all the little details. 

A HUGE thank you to Pacific Place for partnering with us and helping our vision come to life.  You can see all of their upcoming events here.

Stay tuned for more....

Thank you for reading,
