One of my favorite parts about living in Southern California is all the events that go on in this area. Not only that, but events put on by brands I’ve known and respected for years! This past weekend, I attended Ruche‘s sixth birthday party! Lucky for me, the event was being hosted at the 31 Bits headquarters, which is right down the road from where I live! Let me just tell you, I loved this event. Everything was planned and executed so well. Who doesn’t love a good birthday party?
Right as you walked in, some girls were passing out goodie bags (which, by the way, were some amazing goodie bags) and welcoming you into the event. As you walked in, Ruche had set up a pop-up shop of some of their clothing and accessories. Best part? Everything was $10 or less. What! That was quite the nice surprise. As you continued through the venue, you finally entered into a bigger space that was decorated with flower arrangements by Art with Nature Design, party garlands, stringed lights, and other celebratory touches. There was pink champagne, mini cupcakes, a flower crown stand, live music by Honeypie, and a cotton candy stand. Yep.
We totally enjoyed our time celebrating with Ruche! Here are some snapshots from our time at the event:
If you’re every in Southern California, be sure to swing by 31 Bits in Costa Mesa. Each piece is so unique, well crafted, and empowers women to rise above poverty in Uganda. They are close friends to the Krochet Kids intl. family! Seeing their products in person makes it even harder to resist! Each piece is so beautiful.
It’s safe to say my favorite part of the event was Bon Puf. Bon Puf is a service that specializes in organic, natural cotton candy (I didn’t even know that was a thing). And whats better? They have some of the most unique flavors I have ever heard of for cotton candy. Salted Caramel, Strawberry Lemonade, Pear, Coconut, and many more. I had the coconut flavor and they sprinkled the top with pop rocks. How cute is that. Bon Puf is definitely a vendor I recommend for your next event. Oh, and get this: the founder of Bon Puf is only twenty years old.
I love flowers. I definitely was in awe of all the beautiful arrangements at the event done by Art With Nature Designs.
One really special part of the event was a wall with a big sign that read “How Do You Live Beautifully?” That’s a good question. Each person got to write how they live beautifully and tape it up on the wall. It was a really special thing to read each persons response and to see how people’s definitions of living beautifully are so unique and vast. I loved that Ruche took time to direct us to evaluate how we are living in beauty in our every day lives.
Thanks, Ruche, for such a special time celebrating your 6th birthday!
