Blogger Event in Kansas City

Morning beauties! I hope your week went as quickly as mine. Frankly, I’m exhausted from it. My schedule is usually 9-5 Monday through Friday but on Tuesday my day lasted a little longer than usual. I had the opportunity to meet up with a bunch of great Kansas City area bloggers forΒ hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. It was the first time I had ever gotten to do anything like that and it was such a fun event! The Blog Guild organized the event and Golden & Pine graciously hosted all of us crazy bloggers! Getting a group of fashion-conscious, girl bosses together for an evening of socializing is always bound to be a great time.

Golden & Pine has a beautiful space in the up and coming neighborhood of Brookside! Exposed wood and concrete floors added a really unique, hipster vibe to the store. Think Anthropologie with a mix of West Elm and you have Golden & Pine! I fell in love with how they styled this window seat area. Big throw pillows are an easy way to cozy-up a space!

spring inspired food

Another great way to make a space warm and inviting is wonderful food! Heirloom Bakery made these amazing treats for the girls to munch on. Pink donuts with a floral garnish satisfied my sweet tooth. Don’t you just adore the pink glaze dripping down the sides? On slices of wheat toast was hummus topped with veggies and a creamy whipped topping!

anthropologie inspired

Golden & Pine totally embraces my firm belief that plants and flowers brighten the home! They had so many adorable little packets of seeds to choose from with various combinations of flowers!

A styling element they had going on was baskets full of pillows and blankets. The room just made you feel at ease! That’s saying a lot for someone who walked into a social situation where she knew no one and suddenly became friends with everyone. I’m tellin’ you, this group of girls is great!

There was so much detail that went into every little corner of the shop. Even the hand soaps were beautifully displayed in little wooden boxes. Every time I go into places like this, I come home and want to play interior decorator in every room of my home. After being around girls who are even more creative than I am, the desire to try harder and create beautiful spaces is coming back. Sometimes you just get in a slump and need other people to motivate you. The company you keep really does effect you!

      I know! They were divine! I normally don’t like donuts because they can be so heavy but these were a bit lighter and made with better ingredients!

  10. This event looks so adorable!Obsessed with the pillows and succulents. I wish they did something like this for New Jersey bloggers!
