If you’ve followed along for a while, you might have noticed that we really enjoy a great gathering. From our Williamsburg birthday party this spring to our Park Slope store reopening to last month’s event with The Style Line, we jump at any opportunity to celebrate the little things with friends and loved ones.
This past Saturday, we threw what might have been our most exciting fete in recent memory. With customers both old and new, we commemorated our company’s eighth birthday at our East Village shop, where it all began. As usual, there were bubbles, bites, and giveaways: we enjoyed charred grapefruit cocktails with tonic from Bittermilk and mini cupcakes from Sweet Generation, and the first 25 customers to spend $25 got special VIP giftbags from ban.do! We also handed out raffle tickets to everyone for a chance to win a free OliveBox. (Want to see who won? Check out the list in the P.S!) And of course, we couldn’t resist a bit of bright decor, including stunning bouquets from 2hflowers and a smattering of confetti from Thimblepress. Check out a few of our favorite snaps from the fun-filled afternoon in the gallery below!
While the official celebrations may be over for now, we’re still keeping the party going via our #dailydoseofwhimsy feed, where we’re sneaking glimpses of the whimsical details you’re adding to all sorts of special events. From flag-decked cakes to hand-stitched menus, we’re inspired by the creative touches you’re using to brighten up an average bash.
P.S. Congrats to these eight lucky ladies who won our OliveBox raffle!
