It’s official. The Eat Drink Create holiday party was amaaazing and we have the photos and video to prove it.
I want to start with a major shout out to our sponsors. Seriously, without them we would’ve been crafting in my living room. Thanks to Yoked, Happy Cakes, Minted, Zevia, and the awesome crew at West Elm in Cherry Creek, we partied and we partied in style. I think I speak for everyone at EDC when I say: THANK YOU!!
“These are the best cookies I’ve ever had in my life.” I heard that several times that night. Happy Cakes knows how to make a damn good sugar cookie. And the cupcakes?! Omg I could’ve had 50. If you haven’t been to this bakery, GO NOW. Seriously, leave work. It’s that good.
Zevia is such a favorite of mine. It’s rare to find a drink company you truly love and believe in, don’t cha think?! Right when we started planning our holiday event I knew I wanted Zevia at the party. When they agreed to donate super adorbs bottled soda for everyone, I KNEW this was going to be our best party yet.
HUGE thank you to Zevia, not only for the bottled soda, but for letting us get creative with our holiday mocktail! The Merry Berry mocktail is made with equal parts Lemon Lime Twist Zevia, orange juice, and cranberry juice… oh and love. Get the full scoop on the Merry Berry mocktail here!
What’s cooler than a holiday diy station? TWO holiday diy stations! We teamed up with the amazing and talented ladies from Whimseybox to bring our party people even more crafting fun. Thank you, Whimseybox!
DIY STATION ONE
Whimseybox rocked the house with their wrapping paper diy. Seriously, it was every blogger and instagrammer’s dream scenario. Kraft paper, stamps, paints, ribbon, and your imagination. YES.
DIY STATION TWO:
My incredibly talented EDC partner in crime, Lexy of the Proper Pinwheel, created possibly the cutest and easiet diy ever (that’s why I love her), jingle bell stir sticks! Glue your choice of bells and other wintery accessories on a drink stirrer – it can’t NOT look adorable.
It just ain’t a party without a goodie bag. SO of course we had one. Well actually we had two because we’re crazy like that. Crazy awesome.
How cute is that card from Sugar & Type?! She donated a variety of cuteness for our guests – this one is my fave!
My girl L of Design Stitch Go donated the cutest measuring tapes in the entire world. Fact. She’s the best. Also fact.
And of course, I added some disco ball ornaments and tinsel… cuz that’s just what you do.
How rad are those bags and custom labels from Pinhole Press?! Super adorable + super legit, right?? P.S. Pinhole Press lets you customize way more than just goodie bag labels… I was on their site for hours.
Goodie bag numero dos included these adorable little gable boxes from D & P Celebrations! Their store is FULL of cuteness. You’ve been warned.
Guess what was inside… HOT CHOCOLATE ON A STICK from Ticket Chocolate!! Even more cuteness in their store. Warned again.
Speaking of all things cute – Minted donated so many party goodies for us I about screamed when I got the package. Ok, maybe I did scream… like an excited blogger squeal. Their party supplies are definitely my go-to. Check out the cute Silver and Gold party supplies we got here!
The food, the drinks, the diys, everything looked amazing. And I think that’s because we had the best location: West Elm. It’s the perfect backdrop for a party AND they gave away the cutest throw and a gift card to two of our lucky guests! Many, many thanks to everyone at the Cherry Creek store (Edward, Sean, you guys are the BEST!).
Also, we could never have captured the amazingness without our rockstar photographer, Katie Hellinger, and videographer, Annabelle Mintz of Evergreen Lane Productions. Thank you, ladies! Mwah!
Speaking of, it’s video time!!! Get excited.
SO much love to everyone who came and everyone who made this night possible!! I had such a blast and it’s all thanks to YOU. xoxo
