If you follow me on Instagram you know that I co-hosted a blogger movie night a couple of weeks ago with my friends Lisa and Sheree. The goal behind the event was to gather new and old friends for a night of networking and fun. In the blogging world it’s so easy to be friends with fellow bloggers from afar, but the time you actually get to spend bonding in person can be few and far between. What better way to support our fellow boss ladies than to bring everyone together for a movie night!
Lisa and I have been friends for years so you probably recognize her from past blog posts. An actress, writer and the blogger behind Pretty Little Shoppers, she was the brainchild for our movie night and the most gracious hostess. Sheree of Posh Classy Mom and I met over a year ago at a conference and she is the very definition of a woman who juggles it all while looking fabulous and supporting her fellow boss babes. We invited like-minded ladies and I was absolutely blown away by how smart, gracious and wonderful everyone was.
Of course the evening needed to be Instagram worthy, so we enlisted the help of some amazing sponsors to bring our ideas to life. Lemonade LA provided delicious salads, sandwiches, macaroons and their signature blood orange lemonade that we mixed with champagne to make Bellini’s. Lisa also baked gluten free desserts for all of the guests and let me tell you, they were amazing. I definitely ate one too many cookies.
Stella Rosa and Diama Rose provided the vino and bubbly and each person got to take home a mini bottle in their gift bags. BloomNation put us in touch with Playa Flowers who created all of the flower arrangements and donated mini succulents in gorgeous gold and white planters for each of our guests to take home.
No Blogger Movie Night would be complete without a candy bar and popcorn. If you’ve never tried LesserEvil popcorn you absolutely must. Totally organic and made with coconut oil, it’s so good and good for you. We also set up a candy bar filled with all of the classic go-to movie treats and SockerBit gummies. Let’s just say I was beyond excited that we all got to take individual SockerBit bags home with us too. Can you tell I have a sweet tooth?
In true blogger fashion we spent the majority of the evening talking shop, relating to each other’s experiences and then had fun taking photos and Polaroid’s in front of the photo booth. In the midst of all of our bonding we completely lost track of time and didn’t end up watching the movie! Thankfully The Devil Wears Prada is a classic we’ve all seen and I’m so glad we got to spend the time networking. I definitely walked away with a new group of friends am I’m so excited to co-host another event with Lisa and Sheree. Gotta keep this positivity going! Until next time!
