INVITE friends to bring five of their favorite item for swapping with specific instructions to keep each item under ten dollars. Here’s how we did the rest:
We love any excuse to gather friends together for sweet treats and conversation. This springtime party brought together our favorite gals (including our photographer Melissa Jill!) and their favorite things. Since every party needs a good hashtag, you can get an insider look from our brunch co-hosted by Phoenix Flea founder, Ashlee Molina on Instagram with the hashtag #donutsanddresses.
VENUE Set in the cozy living room of Rollover Doughnuts, this party could take place in your own living room or nearby coffee shop.
FOOD When celebrating your favorite things, it only makes sense to incorporate your favorite food! Donuts and coffee make for an easy prep-free brunch menu.
We also love Italian sodas, so we set up a DIY drink bar. Petite Party Studio helped with colorful straws, individual juice bottles, and lemon yellow honeycomb balls for a bright pop of color on our beverage buffet. Create your own Italian soda bar with ice, sparkling water, and flavoring syrups.
DECOR The exposed brick and salvaged wood tables need almost no dressing up. Gina from Fiori Floral arranged bright blooms on the DIY drink bar and tables for a colorful and feminine touch.
FAVORITE THINGS Last but not least, provide a tote or box for guests to take home their new favorite goodies in!
