This past Saturday, I had the most amazing party for Teen Vogue. It was literally an opportunity of a lifetime and a long time dream of mine! I hosted the Teen Vogue Back-to-School Saturday #BTSS at my new home in Oxford, MS.
HOW IT HAPPENED: Teen Vogue sent me 3 large trunks full of back-to-school samplers/goodies from companies such as American Apparel, ASOS, Staples, Simple Skincare, dELiA*s, Tampax,Aeropostale, Hask Hair, Not Your Mother's Brands, Maybelline, OXGXBeauty! All I had to do was set-up the party, pick a date & post some killer social media posts! Thank you to all the companies that contributed to this party & collaborated with Teen Vogue.
The Process (FUN+FUN): It was so entertaining unpacking & setting up all the goodies that Teen Vogue sent me (seriously like Christmas)! And of course, I invited all my social media savvy and best girfriends over to celebrate and snag all the latest products & fun freebies they could get their hands on. I also learned that setting up for super cute aka Pinterest-worthy party was a ton of work, but I absolutely loved the whole process!
PARTY TIME: We started off the day with a mimosa bar accompanied by homemade quiche, delectable red cupcakes & fresh eclairs! I adored my theme & color schemes! I added little chalkboards that said #maddieTV on all my tables, so that my guests coud use it on social media when they posted a pic! I just love how it turned out!
We sipped on a delicious mimosa bar complete with rock candies, striped straws & DIY chalkboard straw name tags! Thank you, Target for all the amazing decor that you supplied my party with!
We had amazing photo booth props brought to you by Engineered Dreams in Oxford, MS! Also, we had fabulous vendors from Oxford, MS such as Dupre Designs, Down Right Denim, Mary Kay Makeup, Aperçu Jewelry! All the girls loved the booths and trying on all the trendy clothes & products.
Down Right Denim at the party was a hit! Everyone loved her hand-made denim products!
During the event, we also had a giveaway with American Apparel's high-waisted denim skirts &Other's Follow Clothing "Pineapple" Shirt ( I have one & it is the cutest thing)! Some of my party faves were the super useful & NEW Simple Skincare Makeup wipe + Cleansing water & the Ryan Porter word bracelets! And of course, you gotta love the social aspect! We loved sampling, snapping pics and sharing them with YOU!
