A Day of Design in Chicago

This post is in partnership with Delta®  Brand.
A day of design in Chicago with Delta Faucet, She She, Copy Cat Chic and Young House Love | Inspiration tour and design challenge

A couple of weeks ago I took a little trip to Chicago. Most of you probably followed along on my Instagram. The reason? A Day of Design with Delta and John and Sherry from Young House Love. Such a great concept, right? The plan? An architectural tour around Chicago to gather up inspiration for a design board we were to create using Delta and She She products. I love me some good inspiration AND a good design challenge! Sign me up.

We Heart It for Heart Day

We Heart It for Heart Day a Galentine's Day Favorite Things party decorated with mini black hearts and black marble. Budget party decor by copycatchic

 

Valentine’s Day is next week! And just like I did last year, I thought it would be perfect to have another Galentine’s Day party. This time around though, I combined it with a Favorite Things party. Have you ever been to one? It’s so much fun. You get your friends together and each person brings some of their favorite things to share with the group. If it’s a large group you can either set a lower gift price or just have everyone bring 3 things and attendees can draw names out of a hat to see who gets what. I hadn’t been to one before, but I’ve been seeing them pop up more and more around the holidays. I was dying to throw one and this was the perfect solution.

Summer Beach Party

A Midsummer beach picnic hosted by Copy Cat Chic and HejDoll. Picnic ideas for a summer beach party. | The Blog Exchange Bay Area blogger network

You guys might remember the tea party I co-hosted a couple of months ago…well, we did it again! My friend Jessica and I, together with our squad, The Blog Exchange, had our quarterly party. We wanted to celebrate summer so we decided what better way to enjoy that sunshine than to have a picnic…on the beach. Am I right? Those of you who follow me on Snapchat (my username is copycatchic) and on Instagram (also copycatchic) you got to see a little sneak preview! We gathered up some local blogger friends and partnered with some fun sponsors to make it all happen. On to the pictures and pretty details!

Spring Tea Party Event

Copy Cat Chic | A spring tea party for local bloggers in partnership with World Market, Munchery, The Bouqs, The Art of Tea, Herbivore, Love Goodly, Zady, Vitality Bowls, Pop OrganicsSo like I mentioned last Friday, my friend Jessica and I hosted a super fun tea party event for our local blogger friends last weekend. Those of you who follow me on Snapchat (my username is copycatchic) and on Instagram (also copycatchic) you got to see a little sneak preview!

We partnered with some amazing sponsors to make it all happen. Not only did they make our event a success, but the ladies attending got to learn more about these great companies. Jessica and I carefully chose companies that we personally love and enjoy, whether they be local to the San Francisco Bay Area or because of their eco-friendly philosophies.

So let’s get on to the pictures, shall we? Then we can talk about all the fun details!

decor
For the decor we partnered with Cost Plus World Market and let me tell you, they’re pretty much you’re one-stop-shop for party prep. You guys saw a lot of the decor choices in my last post, but here’s absolutely everything. We wanted to go with a light and airy theme for Spring. We also thought succulents would be a fun way to bring the green of spring inside. The craft paper accents helped keep everything down-to-earth and natural. World Market had so many amazing glass decor pieces to choose from, it was hard to narrow it down. The hanging glass bubbles made the perfect focal point and everyone LOVED them. *Also* World Market has an amazing up to 50% off Dining Sale going on right now, so most of these items are on SALE. Yep 🙂 Also threw a few of my faves from the sale in the slider. So have fun!

food
munchery

We started off with the fresh fruit salad. It wasn’t your typical fruit salad – it had mango, papaya and kiwi. So tasty. We also had a variety of baked goodies: mini lemon, blueberry/raspberry and banana nut loaves, different kinds of muffins and apple and pear tarts. So delicious. Oh and SO easy. If you didn’t know, Munchery delivers to your door! So I placed my order and had it delivered the evening before. When it came time to set up for the party, all we had to do was set it out 😉 Perfect party food, am I right?Copy Cat Chic | A spring tea party for local bloggers in partnership with World Market, Munchery, The Bouqs, The Art of Tea, Herbivore, Love Goodly, Zady, Vitality Bowls, Pop Organics

tea
the art of tea
We were lucky to be working with The Art of Tea, they have SO many award-winning and scrumptious tea flavors to choose from. It was hard to decide. In the end, we let them decide and they chose the following tasty teas for use to drink. We tried the Amoré, 1896 and Appletea’ni flavors and they were definitely all crowd pleasers.

herbivore botanicals
Herbivore sent us their Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mist and Rose Lip Butter. They’re new faves already. That lip balm is…the bomb 😉


 love goodly
Love Goodly is a subscription service that I just learned about. They curate bi-monthly boxes that focus on eco-friendly and cruelty-free companies. Their boxes contain nontoxic beauty and skincare items, but also fun things like healthy snacks, and green accessories. They sent us some of their Green Molecule product as well as a gift card to use i their site. They’re also running a promo right now for $6 off their April/May box. Very cool.


 zady
Zady is website that offers quality fashion. They’re the epitome of quality over quantity. The pieces they offer are made by knowledgeable craftsmen out of the very best material. I love buying a timeless piece of clothing that I know will last as long as I want to wear it.


vitality bowls
I just recently discovered Vitality Bowls when they opened up a location near me. Such a fun treat. They use super tasty and exotic fruits and berries combined with crunchy granola, coconut, seeds or nuts. They’re super yummy and I love putting them in the freezer and saving them for dessert.

POP ORGANIC CANDY
I discovered this great organic candy shop on Etsy when I ordered organic lavender sugar cubes for the party. I loved their philosophy so much that I asked them if they wanted to give us some of their delicious (and unique) flavored candy for the party and goodie bags. For the party we all sampled organic rosemary and pine nut toffee (my fave), organic floral bark, and popping berry crunch which is like organic pop rocks (yasss!). For the goodie bags we got to sample a couple of their fun lollipop flavors.

THE ART OF TEA
The Art of Tea gave everyone sample tea tins in the goodie bags. Great way to extend the tea tasting fun 😉

THE BOUQS
The Bouqs also gave everyone a coupon code to use when they order flowers. Yay!


world market 
We got these adorable bud vases from World Market to put each attendees gift bag. Aren’t they fun?
