Back in October I was invited to attend the Click Blogger Retreat in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I learned more about photography in that weekend than my entire life! I also had the honor of planning the closing party for this group of amazing bloggers from all over the country. Have you ever planned a party for 70 people from 2000 miles away? lol. Neither had I! But with the help of my trusty assistants, Kaitlyn and Britta, we somehow pulled it off!
Since Avery (the label king!) was the generous sponsor of the party, we wanted to incorporate some of their nifty products into the party decorations, which wasn’t very hard because they have so many cool things to work with! Here are just a few!
With the help of the incredibly talented Alma over at Ollibird.com we set out to create a “beach boardwalk” themed party complete with boardwalk food and games!
Here are just a few pictures of the evening’s festivities:
We had SO much fun planning and executing the party! And hopefully the party-goers had fun too!
Based on this picture…I’m guessing they did! ;-) Can’t wait to see you next year ladies!
As I was looking at all the pictures of the party that photographer extraordinaire, Tracey Clark, was kind enough to take for us, my mind starting racing thinking of all the ways that these fun Avery labels and tags could be used this time of year. They are perfect for sprucing up gifts and goodies that go along with the holidays, and, as I discovered, the possibilities are ENDLESS!
Here are 35 ideas to get your creative juices flowing!
