This is the last Craft Wars post. I promise.
And it’s the best one yet, so just go with it.
There are a few people in life that you love instantly and then love even more every time you chat on the phone, email, or get to see in real life. Bridget is one of my insta-sisters.
When we received the air date my first instinct was to watch it alone. In my house. With no one around. With lots of chocolate.
But then I thought about all of you who would be watching it and possibly worrying about how I was feeling about getting my butt handed to me. And it was a great excuse to get my favorite people in the world together. So instead I thought it would be awesome to have a HUGE celebration.
Bridget is always up for a party (she is a girl after my own heart!) and I asked if she wanted to help me do a viewing extravaganza. The problem? We had 6 days to plan it. Bridget is like a party samurai. And I think this is the best before and after pictures ever posted on Vintage Revivals.
In record time the RSVP list was full and 150 were here to celebrate!
The food was SOOOOO yummy! My girl Janell from One Sweet Slice brought the #1 cupcakes in Utah, and let me tell you, she deserves that title for the REST OF HER LIFE. They were so good I ate a few for breakfast the next morning (and maybe for lunch too….)
Pick Your Plum swooped in to save the day with bags full of SWAG!
And what creative party wouldn’t be complete with out a little DIY? Gygi’s provided everything we needed to make our own Italian Sodas (the peach one is my favorite!) Also if you are ordering from Gygi’s online use the code BRIDGEYWIDGEY10 to save 10% on everything from paper straws to fondant!
Speaking of fondant. Ashlee from Topsy Turvy waltzed in with one of her famous cakes and I may have peed a little it was SO beautiful.
Just for comparison look at the real Craft Wars logo
I know, I was dying too!
We had some major giveaways from Krylon, Purdy, Bake It Pretty, Slipcovers By Shelley, Kid Chatteroo (app launching soon!!), Velata, and Vintage Rose Wraps. THANK YOU GUYS!! Here is a picture of all of our winners! (If you won a pack of Krylon and have not emailed me your order yet DO IT!!)
Jilly the crafting partner of the century was in town for the bash and it couldn’t have been more perfect. Also notice the HUGE smile in the next picture…ya, its cause Jill had just made a boob joke. Love these girls!
But hands down the best part was meeting so many of you! You will never know how much it meant to have your support and love. Thank you from the very bottom of my heart!
Now for the linky!! There were SO many yummy treats and friends at the party. Link up your wrap up post or your recipe for the treat you brought so we can recreate a bit of the magic in our own homes.
Love Your Guts, Mandi
