21 Oct Love You Like Plaid Party

Over the weekend, I got together with some very talented individuals to create a collaboration photoshoot about this season’s favorite trend: PLAID! I mean, have you BEEN to Target lately? Their stores are covered in plaid, and not just for the fall season, plaid should stick around until at least Christmas. Thank goodness, because I cannot get enough.

We had so much fun, we want you to throw your OWN plaid party to tell your girlfriends how much you love them, and also to celebrate the beautiful changing seasons. You’ll see some of the ideas we created for the party, like a popcorn bar, gift baskets, and a craft and I want to hear what other amazing things you come up with, too, if you throw your own party.

Bonus! At the bottom of this email, I’m making all the paper details available for DOWNLOAD below so you can print everything yourself, oh and they are all totally FREE for the rest of October! So hurry and grab those now!

 

A HUGE thank you to the other amazing women who donated their services or talents, including:

The talented photographer who captured the moments beautifully: Kayla Brook Photography

Amazing Salted Caramel Cupcakes: Amy Perkins

Our incredibly talented florist who made the whole event look stunning, and also helped with decorations: Heidi at Over The Top Floral

The cutest plaid love-sign you ever did see: R&J Rustic Touch

 

And now, on to the photos of the event, I hope you enjoy and pin your favorites!

First off, we made the cutest gift baskets to give to each girl. They included one of my gold-foil prints, one of these Old Navy blankets, some root beer bottles, apples, and a hand-tied bunch of fall leaves and flowers. Creating a personalized hand-out gives your guests a cherished item for them to remember the evening with, and it’s a way to say “thank you” for taking the time to come!

Next, we created a popcorn bar! We attempted making our own popcorn over the fire, and it probably would have worked if it didn’t start raining (our fire wasn’t very hot) and if we had larger pieces of foil. Give it a try next time! 1TBS of kernels, 1tsp of vegetable oil, and you have to shake your popcorn container constantly so the foil or the kernels don’t burn.View More: http://kayla-brooke.pass.us/love-you-like-plaidView More: http://kayla-brooke.pass.us/love-you-like-plaidView More: http://kayla-brooke.pass.us/love-you-like-plaidView More: http://kayla-brooke.pass.us/love-you-like-plaidView More: http://kayla-brooke.pass.us/love-you-like-plaidView More: http://kayla-brooke.pass.us/love-you-like-plaid

Luckily, we brought our own popcorn as well, and we had the YUMMIEST toppings. We even did a contest for who could make the best popcorn, and here were the ingredients for the best and most creative:

Snickerdoodle Popcorn: butter spray & cinnamon sugar

“The Works” Popcorn: caramel sauce, crushed Andes mints, mini Reeses, crushed oreos, and cinnamon sugar

Zesty Popcorn: drizzled olive oil and Ranch flavoring (my personal favorite!)

Mexican Popcorn: lime juice, salt, parmesean cheese and olive oil

 

Lastly, we were hoping to make a craft, but the rain sort of spoiled our plans… This was our inspiration, a cute, fall, twig candle-holder. But alas, we didn’t get very far before we realized it wasn’t going to work in the rain. The best thing about doing a craft is that it lets people socialize around a table as they let their fingers work. You get the great conversations, and friendships bond, which is really the whole goal of a party anyway, right?

Overall, it was a beautiful way to celebrate the beautiful fall weather and an excuse to get some of my lovely friends together. A huge thanks to my girls, and for all the assignments that they brought to make this plaid party such a success!
