It’s horrible, we know, but you can bet whenever we’re neglecting this blog it’s because we’re head high in projects! Which is exactly how it’s been for the last two weeks-ever since we accepted the invitation to be part of Utterly Engaged’s Annual Party and Design Challenge. We sure are glad we did though, it’s going to be one helluva party. You better hurry and get your tickets here!
The theme of this year’s party is Leap Year Remix and the Design Challenge is supposed to encompass the spirit of taking a“Leap of Faith” while combining the aesthetics/cultures of two countries that ShelterBox has benefitted. ShelterBox is an amazing disaster relief charity that delivers boxes of aid instantly following natural and other disasters to those who need it most.
When looking through the list of countries we were immediately drawn to Colombia (coffffeeee!) and Peru (bright colors!) and above is our inspiration board for the challenge. You can expect to see hints of coffee here and there (rich browns, maybe some spare beans!?) and lots of pops of bright fuchsia and aqua! Maybe a tassel or two….
We’re most thankful for the amazing team we have collaborating on this table. We’re so honored to be working with them, it’s crazzzzy! Here’s the line-up: Florist extraordinaire Stephanie from Seed Floral, If-you-can-dream-it-she-can-make-it Stevi from Hey There! Cupcake, and last but not least graphic design & paper goddess Amber of Pitbulls and Posies! Some crazy talented ladies right there and we are so stoked to not only be able to work with them, but to party with them!
Tune in to our twitter page to see sneaks of the table on Wednesday…
