It's hard to believe that 2016 is coming to an end! I have so much to be thankful for: I've had such an incredible year and am having so much fun looking back at images from all of the events I've had the honor of designing and coordinating this year.
In the spirit of #GivingTuesday, one of my favorite events of the year was a nonprofit fundraiser that my team designed and coordinated to benefit the Isla Vista Youth Projects. This incredible organization serves over 2,000 families in Santa Barbara county, providing comprehensive services to underserved and impoverished members of our community. The support they provide to families is invaluable, and it was an honor to plan and design this special 45th anniversary event for them. I love seeing a group of vendors come together and give back to the community through doing what we do best - throw an amazing party (and fundraiser) for an amazing cause.
Inspired by the 60's and modern boho-trends, I had so much fun designing this event. One of my favorite details: I created all of the dreamcatchers with varying lace and ribbon textures and patterns - we made over 20 (large and small) as fun accents around the greenhouse. From the 12' Teepee installation to the super fun lounges (Thanks to team member, Jenny, for the awesome details!) - I loved the bright, open, raw, colorful, fun design we came up with!
