Blog Fete 2015

Blog Fete 2015 was our best year yet! From the schedule to the topics covered to the food to the fancy dinner party, it truly was a fabulous event. 

Each attendee was welcomed in fashion; notebooks from Tiny Prints, custom macarons by Le Petite Sweet, fresh juice from Natalie's, custom building my empire coffee mugs from Tiny Prints, event schedule cards by Brave Creative Design, flowers from Farm Gal Flowers and lots of girl boss love from the Blog Fete team. 

We started our day with a warm welcome from Blog Fete founder Melissa of Melissa Creates and she debuted a new video! You can spot the video here. Following the video debut Brandi of Alexis June Weddings gave an inspirational keynote. Lots of note taking action happened. wink. 

Brandi was also our event photographer and offered head shots for each attendee. Such a treat! 

After our inspirational keynote we moved into lunch sponsored by event founder Melissa Creates. East End Market served as our venue for the second year and the food was catered by Cuisiners. Another year a gorgeous venue with delicious food! 

Our round tables were a blast and the only thing missing was more time. The attendees (and team) could have talked business for several more hours. Topics covered during our round table sessions included blogging basics, personality + business, photoshop tips, what it takes to run a business, social media, working with brands and more. 

Take a look at a few round table discussion photos below! 

After a couple of hours diving into our roundtable topics it was time to take a creative break. Sarah Hearts led a DIY hour were each attendee created a motivational banner. Each banner was complete with pom poms created with pom pom makers. 

Alexis June Weddings captured some great photos during the craft hour. The banners are fun, unique and simple. Very Blog Fete! 

We ended the day with a sit down dinner party hosted and sponsored by Paper Goat Post. The dinner party and swag bags were coordinated by Pen and Paper Flowers. Black, white, pink and touches of gold graced the dinner party room. Wine was provided by Anew Wines, menu cards were sponsored by Tiny Prints and coordinating swag bags were provided by Nashville Wraps

The absolute perfect way to wrap up a day filled with girl boss fun.
