Have you seen those amazing quotes all over Pinterest in neon? It's the newest trend in home decor and party planning and I am calling it now. Neon signs are all the rage and did you know it is super easy and affordable to get your very own? From custom shapes to your favorite quote or phrase you can have anything made in any neon color you love. From the moment we started planning our Urban Jungle party, the Alt Summit Mini Party I hosted with Sharon, Lauren and Ali, we knew we wanted one. Stay Wild seemed so fitting. I searched high and low for custom neon signs, looking for a shop that specialized in custom work rather than the standard "open" sorts. I wanted a shop that wanted to make something fun and unique. I started to panic a bit when I was having such a hard time finding one. I mean, "stay wild" isn't the craziest sign you could come up with and still all I got were crickets. Where are the shops that want to create something different? Where's the variety? When I found Endeavor Neon, which is just a pop across the border in Vancouver, I got a response immediately.
I had seen a bit of their work on their Instagram account, and knew this was who we wanted to work with. Their neon specialist extraordinaire Andrew was beyond helpful. I had never ordered a neon sign, how many of us have, and Andrew walked me through all the steps and did it over the weekend. Above the call of duty, right? I was so grateful they were willing to work with us considering this was right around the holidays. He even helped us decide what size would work best for our party. He made it lickity split and shipped it straight away to Utah so it would be ready for the party.
But then the unspeakable happened, it broke in shipping (ahhhhhhh! waves of panic rushed over us), but this didn't even phase Andrew, who made the replacement letters, arranged a local UT neon shop to fix it and had his wife pop over the border to ship it faster. We were A-ok thanks to the amazing customer service and our gorgeous sign was once again glowing and wild. We even debated keeping it for ourselves and considered doing a timeshare where we could all take turns, but then decided we would probably fight over it.
Images after images of our party's piece de resistance, aka coolest neon sign ever, were run Friday night on Instagram. The winner of our giveaway? Now this beauty is sitting pretty with Alison, of The Alison Show. I think we all just need to order our own.
If you have ever thought how amazing it would be to have a neon sign, you really need to give Andrew a call, I'm pretty convinced he can make just about anything and you'd be surprised at how incredible these signs are in real life. I mean, have you seen these signs? Insane.

A huge thank you to Andrew and Endeavour Neon. You made our party beyond our wildest dreams.
