friyay happy hour: lavender + citrus cooler
finally, a moment to breath. i have been missing in blog actions for two weeks now, for good reasons. first of which was my birthday. a week ago, i turned thirty-two. and i have a REALLY good feeling about my thirty-third year. for two and a half years, i've been grinding along, exerting oodles of energy to try and get all my businesses off the ground. and i can feel it in my bones that things are changing for the good. even my horoscope is leading me to believe positivity is coming in one way or another.
but age is just at number. more importantly, i had a couple of very exciting events. last weekend, i had my first large wedding cake. six tiers. and the delivery required a two-hour drive on a 102 degree f day. what started out as a mellow delivery, turned into a stressful cake moment since the venue was so remote and the day so warm. my skills were put to the test, but if anything, the day showed me how far i have come and that i truly am a cake professional now. the bride and her family were over the moon, and while i ran myself into the ground physically to deliver, it was worth every painful moment for the pay off.
the MOST EXCITING part of all the craziness was last nights B.SOCIAL, a live and styled event i threw with my good friend alicia and betsy from the delicious b. toffee. i know... what the hell does that mean?
basically, we got a bunch of event creatives, wholesalers and business owners together to network and celebrate one another. it was a HUGE success and a BLAST. i was so lucky to have an amazing vendor team of old and new friends come together to make a truly magical night for all.
here are a couple of sneak pictures from the B.SOCIAL. we had stunning blooms from seven stems, a s'mores bar from mallow mallow, table top rentals from cherished rentals and one time use, adorable plates and forks from l'entramise, just to name a few of the amazing vendors. more photos and recap to come!
