Party Planning 101

Our Altitude Design Summit party recap is finally here! 
You loved our party last year, so we had to make an even bigger impression this year.
How do you think we did?

For this year's Alt Summit we party planned with Pinhole Press. They were a fabulous company to pair with, because we love their products and they loved our ideas.

Capturing the event was the lovely Carolee Beckham. She is a talented photographer and such a blast to work with. To see more of the party attendees shot by Carolee, go here.

There was a lot of work to get this party to look as pretty as a picture. We started with the Paris theme. We had french macarons by Mercedes White. They were sublime.

We had lots of French details - Big ones like the 10 foot Eiffel Tower, and little ones like our black and white umbrellas. {the photos below are from the Alt Summit Flickr}

We had a line wrapped down the hallway for our gift bags, which included adorable striped tees by Striped Shirt (Brooke and Summer love how comfy and flattering they are, pictures to come), chocolate from Godiva, a Jack and White EP, new Redken Power Grip 03, a Pinhole Press notebook, and more!

Flowers were done by Summer's talented cousin-in-law, Jamie Bellessa. We had simple greenery in our umbrella centerpieces and beautiful pale pink flowers in our flower cart.

We even talked the waitresses into letting us paint on the cutest little french mustaches!

It was an amazing night and we couldn't of done it without our amazing sponsor Pinhole Press and each member of our creative and hardworking team. Thanks again for an amazing night.
