The feedback and excitement over my Be Happy Box collaboration with The Happy Planner has been so amazing. Your enthusiasm and happiness has meant the world to me. That’s why when the team suggested months ago that we kick off the box with an official launch party, I said yes!! The only thing that would have made it more perfect is if the venue was big enough to hold everyone who wanted to come. If you haven’t seen my walkthrough of the box and its contents, be sure to check that out here. And remember, if you grab your box before Wednesday, June 12 at 11:59pm and use code AMYTANGERINE, you’ll get 20% off your entire purchase. Plus domestic orders over $75 ship free!
The Happy Planner played the hostess(es) with the mostest. They organized some of our favorite vendors as well as a small number of excited fans who won tickets to the event. (It totally pays to watch our Instagram Stories you guys!). Highlights from the afternoon included aura readings, cocktails, delicious food and time well-spent watercoloring together. We even finished off the event with an ice cream sundae bar. I wanted to share highlights and photos from the party.
I absolutely loved the venue and menu. My dear friend Kara Elise was the architect behind all the incredible food served at brunch. Guests could not stop talking about all the delicious options she created and we got to enjoy them on the lovely Geese & Ganders plates. The venue FESTOON LA was the perfect backdrop and the Happy Planner team absolutely nailed the decor. People were swooning over the bouquets and balloon creations that brought everything together. We talked and sipped some amazing (themed!) drinks from Coastal Cockails or for those who needed an energy boost, delicious cold brew from SloBru Craft Coffee.
You all know how firmly I believe in the crafting community– when people come together to create, beautiful things can happen. That’s why I made time in the schedule for people to watercolor and just enjoy spending part of their afternoon creatively. We used products from Ooly to paint. In addition to the things they made, guests also got to walk away with beautiful cards where their auras were read and selfies under a gorgeous neon sign.
Overall, I had an incredible time connecting with so many amazing creatives and couldn’t believe how quickly it all went by. Looking back on the event, I’m struck by how important it is to surround yourself with like-minded, positive people who enhance each other’s creativity. I love that we were able to come together to create this incredible party with the best energy.
Have you had a chance to check out my Be Happy Box? Will you throw any awesome summer events for family and friends? If you do, be sure to surround yourself with awesome people and take lots and lots of photos.
