  • Last week, I was honored to attend Better Homes and Gardens Stylemaker Workshop and Party. It was so inspiring to meet other bloggers and the editors of BHG. It was hosted at the Brighton pop-up restaurant in the Eventi Kimpton Hotel. The venue was not only adorable, but it offered an array of food options including a pizza and salad station, burger, fry & milkshake station and seafood station. They did an amazing job of capturing the essence of a boardwalk with all the amenities being indoors offers. It also boasted a theatre room, complete with boat seats, where the Stylemaker Workshop was hosted. Ready for some grainy iPhone photos? I couldn’t resist sharing regardless!

    The event was hosted to celebrate Better Homes and Gardens Stylemaker issue. I have been reading Better Homes and Gardens for years and can honestly say, it was their best issue yet! You know, one of those issues where you tear the corner of every page to mark an idea. Last year, they started a refresh and brought on one of my favorites, Eddie Ross. Among so many other things, I learned that the magazine is 91 years young! Impressive!

    We had breakout sessions where we met with the fabulous editors and discussed all things entertaining. This include a styling session with Eddie.

    I love a blue color palette for Fall. It’s unexpected! A couple of years ago, I used my Grandma’s blue carnival glass for Thanksgiving. I just might do it again!
    Then it was off to the Stylemaker Party!

    The panel, hosted by Maxwell of Apartment Therapy, was so informative, and hilarious.

    You know why Eddie is laughing if you follow me on Instagram.
    The panel included Annette Joseph {pictured in the middle}, a stylist, producer and entertaining expert who just released her book “Picture Perfect Parties.” I instantly knew we had a lot in common when she said that people come for the conversation and just want something great to nosh on, like an easy cheese display. I couldn’t agree more! Also on the panel was the delightful Kayce Hughes who has 7 children and was incredibly inspiring. Makes my 3 seem easy!

    How cute is this sorbet bar?

    The trip ended with a tour of the offices, which I documented via Instagram. This photo is for Kansas City’s Creative Candles…at the desk of Eddie Ross.
    I had an incredible time and hope to do it again next year! I look forward to connecting with all of my new friends and creating from my new inspiration!
