Bright Blog Bash Holiday Party

Happy Monday! I hope you all had wonderful, peaceful Thanksgiving. I enjoyed spending quality time with my friends and family in St. Louis. I went to the symphony with my family, shopped in Maplewood, MO on Small Business Saturday and spent time catching up with friends over coffee and cocktails. It was a great trip, but today I’m excited to share photos from the Bright Blog Bash!

Bright Blog Bash Holiday Party - Party Hostesses Katie & Susannah // Sara Logan Photography for Twin Stripe & Feast + WestThis holiday season, Susannah of Feast + West and I decided to team up to host a holiday kick off party for local North Carolina bloggers. It was so great to get a group of women together who are all so passionate about what they do. A special thanks to my friend Sara Wilson Coffin of Sara Logan Photography who captured the magic of this wonderful evening.

Susannah and I teamed up with Tiny Prints for the invites, party favors and other party printables. They have a large selection of holiday party invitations for every occasion. Susuannah and I wanted to use gold, black and white colors, so the Stirring Spirits party invite was perfect.

Decorating my home for the holidays is one of my favorite things to do. I loved taking the time to create some new decorations in gold, black and white. Check back later this week, I’ll be detailing the decorations then.

Of course Susannah and I wanted to make sure no one went home hungry, so we put together a spread of simple appetizers and desserts. On the savory side, we served a selection of cheeses, Copper Pot & Wooden Spoon dill pickle chips, veggies and dip, and Ritche Hill cheese straws. For dessert, everyone enjoyed Susannah’s black and white cookies and speciality popcorn, Moravian cookies and an flourless chocolate cake from Randi of Sugar Euphoria.

    1. Thanks, Amy! It was a blast to put together and I don’t think anyone would appreciate a party as much as blogging friends!
