hi friends! as some of you already know, i recently threw my hat in the ring to host a mini-party for a blogging conference called altitude summit. they ran a contest to see who could come up with the best party ideas, and the winners would receive a free ticket to the conference and the honor of hosting their party at the event in salt lake city this coming january.
i had an absolute blast dreaming up this party with my team, who you won't be surprised to learn was kyla and grace. kyla's recent birthday party at the violet hour was our inspiration, and a luxe speakeasy seemed the perfect backdrop for a winter fete.
well, we did NOT win the contest, but the mood board that kyla created is just too gorgeous not to share. i hope it will inspire some real-life parties, even if they aren't at alt. new years eve anyone?
i know you're so curious to see who won, and seriously...no one could feel bad losing to competition like this. the ideas were out of this world! here is the list of the winners and a peek at their mood boards:
i'm so excited to stalk each and every one and see how the parties turn out. (and my girl andrea is among the winners for "stick 'em up!" yay!!) thanks to all my friends who were cheering for us and we'll be thinking about what to do for the next one!
