I am so excited to share a little bit about the picnic party I planned with Lauren McKinsey that was featured on Amy Atlas Events. The vision for this party began when I met Lauren McKinsey through the Martha Stewart Sunshine State Dreamers into Doers event in Orlando in February. Though we were almost complete strangers, we rode together to the event and had a great time discussing our businesses, among many other things ; ).
Lauren McKinsey is a print design company and as you know Great Gatherings is an event design company and the rest is history! Perfect pairing! I contacted Lauren McKinsey to discuss pairing up to do a spring party. Since Easter was fast approaching, we joined the spring party idea with Easter and decided on a spring picnic.
We both love bright colors with a lot of pop, so it worked perfectly. We got together to brainstorm ideas a few times, but did most of our work through smart phone and photograph sharing. Lauren McKinsey provided the paper design with me insisting on a “boy bunny with a bowtie” who along with a sweet girl bunny complete with eyelashes made for total cuteness.
We both designed elements of the party separately (since we live an hour apart) and put them together the day of the party. We had a great time putting it all together.
We found the color inspiration through a tablecloth with a lot of bright colors that I found. Still LOVE it!
Here are a few more fun pictures from the party.
As you can tell, the kids had a SUPER time too! We had a baby bunny rabbit, baby chicks, lots of balloons and BIG twirly whirlies to keep them busy and having fun. They loved the "cute" food and had a great time eating and drinking at their picnic.
More picnic party fun to come on the blog soon including shout out's to all our wonderful vendors!
Also, I will highlight a few party ideas we used that might help you with your next Great Gathering!
Stay tuned! Happy Monday!
