It's hard to believe that our THIRD Maiedae Mixer has already come and gone! I have to say that this was the best Mixer yet. From the decorations to the incredible swag bags AND all of our amazing attendees, it was such a beautiful and fun evening. For those of you out of the loop on the Mixer, it's an annual event for creative women. It's a time to dress up, meet new friends, get some fun gifts and feel inspired!
Last year we tried to make the Mixer a larger event and going into this year that certainly was our intention. After a lot of "life" in 2015, we decided to down-sized and with only 35 guests and do the Mixer to the best of our ability. We wanted to treat each guest to a delicious meal, dessert, swag bags, DIY time and of course champagne and wine! One of our beautiful friends Kate was in charge of the DIY time and "champagne/wine experience" and she was giving out bubbly at the door as soon as people registered. I think everyone felt fancy right away! BTW, I have to give a huge shout out to Kate, Erin and Jessica, these girls helped us SO much during the Mixer. They helped set-up, run registration, clean and make the evening so special for each of our guests. We LOVE them so much!! xox
We were SO incredibly honored and excited to have Minted sponsor the Mixer this year. Not only did the contribute beautiful decor; like our photo-booth backdrop fabric, table runner, menu's and place cards BUT they gifted each of our guests Christmas cards for the holidays! We are HUGE fans of Minted and we can hardly wait to pick out our holiday cards this year!
Jenna of Gold & Bloom did all of our floral arrangements for the event. She seriously outdid herself and really made the event look magical. Just take a look at how beautiful the photos are! If you're in the ATL (or nearby!) area and need a florist that is incredibly talented, be sure to connect with Jenna! You can also check her out over on IG at @goldandbloom.
Last but certainly NOT least, we had the incredibly delicious Lovable Foods cater our event. They did an outstanding job and everything we ate was SO good and full of so much flavor. Did I mention the dessert bar after dinner? OMG the creme brûlée.
