TROPHY PARTY ROOM AND A MEET AND GREET

Hello! Early this summer, our family moved back to the Seattle area from Reno.  Of course, I was jumping up and down excited...and of course I had to tweet that kind of happiness. And what??? Ms. Lyndsey of The Stationery Place was also moving this summer? Really? Well, I have just got to meet this lovely girl. Not only is she just flat out awesome, she had a brilliant idea...let’s have a party and round up some of those fantastic creatives that blog in the Seattle area. And thus, a party was born.  {this picture is massively huge, sorry} 

When she asked if she knew of a venue to have this fabulous little party of ours, I immediately thought of Trophy Cupcakes and Party and their new Party Room.  

Nestled in the old Wallingford schoolhouse, across the hall from the original Trophy Cupcakes and Party, is a gorgeous, white and bright space perfect for any kind of shower, fete or shindig. Have you ever had a party in your living room?  Have you moved the couch, and rearranged your decor so you “match” the party better? Don’t feel bad, I’ve even done it for a teeny photo shoot, but don’t even get me started with the aftermath...at Trophy, they do the cleanup! How's that for awesome!

The Trophy Party Room is a beautiful light filled venue that is the perfect neutral backdrop for your next party {no rearranging required.} It has pretty dark wood floors and a huge marble topped side bar for treats. The ceilings are so high and are outfitted with hooks to hang as many poms as you can fluff.

But the space isonly half of it...Trophy plans parties. The brilliant idea from Jennifer Shea, founder of Trophy Cupcakes and Party, was that Trophy would plan every last detail of your very amazing fete, or just open the doors to the fabulous space and let you do it yourself, or some beautiful balance in between.  For this party, I worked with their party team {yep, they have a team} to determine my needs.

We discussed placement, cupcake orders {totally not required, but with the best in Seattle...how can you be across the hall from heaven and not partake?} party colors, choice of stands, poms needed. Not a planner, but know your little miss wants a princess party? Done. Trophy has over 15 preplanned themes for ready to set fetes. OVER 15...just tell them how many and you pay a per person price. It can't get much easier than that. Let Trophy Cupcakes and Party do all the decorating for you.  

What comes with the Party Room rental is complete water service, including a gorgeous glass cooler that we filled with mint and lemon for the party.  They also provide champagne glasses, pretty turquoise fiesta ware coffee mugs, and plates...everything you need for a fete.  A big shout to DRY Soda for providing us with some amazing sodas to try!

Of course, if you need that little something extra...there is a FULLY stocked party shop on the side.  I will vouch it is the BEST in Seattle. EVERYTHING you need to throw a really fabulous party.  They even have honeycomb balls and table fringe...the tissue kind. Even if you are just having a small get together, you have to go get some pretty little extras from the shop. {look towards the right for party goodies...away from another giant picture of me even though I was having a good makeup day...table fringe...my new favorite thing} 

We had the BEST photographer ever. All of these gorgeous photos were taken by the amazing Adele Cabanillas of Abigail Reese Photography.  She is the sweetest and most incredible photographer!  Adele also has a wedding website HERE.  Both Lyndsey and I were floored with the results from the party. I can't wait to work with her again, seriously, if you are in the Seattle area, I can't recommend a more amazing lady for your fete. 

I am thrilled with how the pictures turned out and can't wait to share more with you.  A details, sponsor love  and the BIG party post are coming soon! Don't forget to come back when we have the DIYs on The Sweetest Occasion.

I have to give a huge THANK YOU to Stephanie from Trophy for all of her hard work the day of this event...we wouldn’t have made it without you! I also want to thank Lyndsey for being the best cohost EVER! I’d do it all again with her in a millisecond!

THANK YOU Jennifer and Trophy Cupcakes and Party for having us! It could not have been a more wonderful party planning and event experience! XOXO

PS I am SO in love with your new boxes...still.
