Exclusive Denver Blogger Meetup
If you follow me on social media (which you should! 😉 ), you’ve seen lots of posts over the last week regarding an Exclusive Denver Blogger Meetup that I helped put together with my good friend Danielle from According To D. Today, I’m sharing a little bit more about the background of the event, and how it turned out!
Earlier this year, Danielle shared the desire to host a get together for bloggers local to the Denver area. As a relatively new resident of Colorado, I wholeheartedly agreed and the idea for the first blogger meetup was born!
Event Design & Inspiration
We brainstormed options for the event decor and aesthetic, and decided on a palette of gold, white, pink & cream to create a light, airy atmosphere with pops of color. The queen of celebrations, Lauren Conrad, was our main influence as we scoured Pinterest and put together THIS INSPIRATION BOARD.
We were excited to join forces with the lovely ladies of Denver Style Magazine to host this event at their space in The Studio. Their team also helped with promotion for the event, which helped make this event a tremendous success! We also had the pleasure of working with the talented Corey Anthony Photography and the wonderful Emily of Froozer. Seriously, Froozer’s frozen fruit snacks are seriously delicious AND a perfect healthy treat that feels like an indulgence – think Freeze Pops but way better! Danielle and I are both so thankful for their participation!
Hosting an event for the first time is always a little scary. Even though Danielle and I were both nervous we were encouraged by all of the RSVPs we received. We both made some “blogger bites” for the event – mini cucumber sandwiches, watermelon, basil & feta bites, caprese salad bites, and confetti cake pops. We also found the cutest mini coupes to serve white wine and rosé for the bloggers to sip on. Some highlights of our decor include a glittery gold hashtag, a Blogger Love banner and an Eat Sleep Blog Repeat sign.
As the bloggers arrived and started to mingle, we started a game of Blogger Bingo to get the conversations flowing and to help everyone get to know each other a bit more. At the end of the event, Corey captured some amazing shots of the entire group and individuals up on the rooftop with a perfect view of the Denver skyline.
That’s a Wrap
After all of the cleanup, Danielle and I wrapped up the night with some celebratory sushi from East Moon Asian Bistro (yum!). Cheers to a successful event, with more to come!
