Note: was a feeling a bit sick yesterday so this post is one day late! Sorry!

Every Friday I round up my favorite blog posts, articles, instagrams, photo shoots etc. that have to do with the events industry/event and party planning.

So let's get started, shall we...

TOP 20 SUPPER CLUBS & POP-UP DINING EXPERIENCES, The Venue Report

Ever since reading Kitchens of the Great Midwest by J. Ryan Stradal (read it, it's great!), the idea of a pop-up dinner has been fascinating to me. I didn't actually think they were a thing in real life, but The Venue Report has a great round up of supper clubs and pop-up dinners. While my bank account isn't quite ready for me to pay for a supper club, it definitely gives me some inspiration to start my own between my friends!

SURPRISE YOUR BRIDESMAIDS WITH A HANDMADE GIFT BOX!, Style Me Pretty

Handmade bridesmaids gift boxes are definitely on my DIY list for when I get married. I love the idea of a bunch of small helpful and personalized presents that they can actually use on the day of the wedding or leading up to the wedding. Check out these adorable boxes via Style Me Pretty.

A LAVISH LAUNCH PARTY FOR THE 1912, Inspired by This

Lately I've been really digging modern event venues and The 1912 space featured in Inspired by This is just that. Everything in this Souther California venue, from the beautiful hardwood floors to the oversized windows, is sleek and sophisticated. Not only that, but the lavender and plum colored showcase is something I can definitely get behind.
