It has been a huge goal of mine to curate and host a blogger influencer event and it finally happened! It didn’t take much convincing to get my girl Caroline (@careeohhlinee) to co-host with me. We are both South Florida natives and are all about supporting and cheerleading brands and companies we love. Our goal was to collaborate with as many local vendors for items such as the venue, food, drinks and decor. It didn’t stop there, we reached out and created relationships with very well known brands as well and they were on board to support us with things like decor, drinks, treats and swag bag gift items!
We are so thankful to Grandview Public Market for hosting us and generously giving us their vibrant living room space! We could not have dreamed of a better location! I mean, just look at the lemon wall! Our great friend Krystal of @krystalcaponephoto captured the day beautifully!
Caroline and I have met so many beautiful people and we wanted everyone to attend, but being this was our first event we kept it very intimate! It was perfect! As you can see from this stunning group of girls above!

No detail was left out, from the rosé compliments of The Wandering Wines to the food from some of the best vendors at Grandview, such as Pumphouse Coffee Roasters, Poke Lab Eatery, Sugar Milk Boba Desserts, Zipitios. As you can see from our Vendor card we also had amazing contributions from huge brands like Health-Ade Kombucha and Starbucks. And, PS, that gorgeous vendor card and all of our handmade signs were graciously made by the talented owner, Rachael, of Handmade Highlights.
The decor was on point and no detail was left out. Thanks to Blue Lime Events for our backdrop and balloon garlands, Jollity & Co. and Confete Party Box for tableware and accessories, Pearl & Jane for custom pom pom garlands, Gracious Bridal Design House for custom souvenir cups, and our local family friend for all the flowers to help make the space come alive!
No good party goes without tons of sweet treats, am I right!? These delicious goodies you see here were compliments of the local Delray Beach baker, Two Fat Cookies. The yummy donuts were donated by Duck Donuts and didn’t last long at all!
Not only was this an event full of influencing bloggers, engaging conversation, delicious food & drinks, we also ensured everyone left with an incredible swag bag full of goodies.
