Blankanvas Salon Blogger Mixer

Hi, Cuties!

I am so excited to be sharing this blog post with you guys! I had the honor of co-hosting an blogger mixer with my friend, Raquel (@Raquel.McComb), and to say it was a blast is an understatement. We had the pleasure of hosting the event at Blankanvas Salon in the Heights area. If you are from Houston, you should definitely check them out! They do blow-outs, hair treatments, styling, dying, you name it. I also want to take a little time to give a HUGE thank you to our wonderful sponsors. This event would not have been possible without them!

Food and Desserts

@Infusions1 provided the amazing light bites. He and his gf Mari of @MariSabe were so helpful along the way and made sure to make all the food look so presentable. Let me just say the owner, Javier, is definitely talented! His food was amazing, and I'm so sad I wasn't able to take any home because it was all gone by the time the event was over.

@FantasitcalTreats provided the prettiest donut macarons. They were so yummy and such a big hit! They can customize your macarons to any design or theme you'd like and are a perfect addition to you next dessert table.

@DonutLiciousHtx really brought the 'Treat Yo Self' theme to life with an assortment of delicious donuts. They are brand new to the Cypress area, so next time you're on that side of town don't forget to visit them!

@Savannahs_Treats provided the awesome cake pops. She is truly a sweetheart, and her bakery is named after her little girl, Savannah.

@EggHaus has been one of my favorite breakfast/brunch spots since it opened, and I am so happy that they were happy to support our event and provided all of the yummy croissants. If you haven't stopped by their restaurant yet, you have to try it out!

@PastelBoutiquehtx was a sponsor of one of the cakes. They made our vision come to life, and there was a fun surprise inside the cake when we cut into it. Not only was it delicious, but it was beautiful!

@ButterBabyBakery provided the second gorgeous cake. It was so delicious I snuck some on a plate to take home with me. You guys have to check out their instagram to see all of their unique designs.

@AddysCakesBakes is actually my sister's childhood friend, and I am so glad she was willing to sponsor our cookies. They were so adorable, and one of the first treats to go! She can customize pretty much any design you'd like to add some fun to your next event.

@HTXNitrocreamery may have been where I spent the majority of the night next to. They ice cream was such a hit, and I absolutely loved the concept! Johnny can come to your next party to make your life a little sweeter!

Drinks

@Wines2Hou was so gracious to provide all of the amazing wine! They offer so many great things such as wine tastings, gift baskets, and can even come to you for private parties. Truly a God sent, and their wines are top-notch!

@MiniMoblieBar came boy with her portable bar! They have the cutest mobile bar also, with the coolest owner! Jo is a full-time teacher, and followed her dreams and created Sarita to bring around town. Make sure to check her out for you next event! She will definitely be the talk of the night.

Sabor Latino provided the delicious hand squeezed lemonade and pineapple fresco. They are located on the east side of Houston and have an assortment of Central American food. My parents just so happen to be the owners, so this was my favorite of the night ;)

Decor

@Paper_Tables provided the beautiful tablescape for the dessert table. I mean, can you say TALENTED?? I loved all of the details they put into it, and she was always sure to accommodate our preference along the way. Such a great way to dress up the dessert table at your next event!

@EndearingEventsDecor_Houston made the amazing balloon garland and dessert table backdrop. This was so beautiful! It was the first things people would see when they walked in, and I seriously can't thank them enough for making it happen on such short notice.

@FancyNancyBalloons also provided giant balloons with tassels, which were such great pieces to add into the theme. She was so sweet, and does all kinds of arrangements from garlands to bouquets.

@PostStudioHou was so generous to provide us with the 'Treat Yo Self' sign on the Photo Booth. She has a shop here in Houston, which was so fun to walk into. All of her creations are gorgeous! If you are ever in need of any customized sign, she is who you need to go see.

@AmoraFlowerBar was our floral sponsor. The owner is so sweet and just so talented! Everyone called dibs on the arrangements, and I'm so sad they all beat me to it. She also hosts workshops and can do any occasion.

@MaganMarieCalligraphy was the biggest sweetheart and sponsored the welcome board. She is super talented, and can customize your message for any occasion!

Photo Booth and Flower Wall

@PoshFlowerWallCo was the flower wall sponsor. I just want to take a moment to give a HUGE shout-out to Zayda and her bf, who own both Posh Flower Wall Co. and @HTXPhotobooth. They are both so sweet and I know they will go so far. Zayda is actually also a blogger and is able to juggle that, both her businesses, and is still working the 8-5 gig. I seriously don't know how she does it!

Photographer and Videographer

@RightTimeSolutions is owned by Rashid, who has become a great friend! He is always so professional and knows how to make everyone laugh. He was busy all night making sure he captured great footage and created the video shown above, and even shot a coupe of pictures!

@JosuaEspin was our awesome photographer of the night. I met him through a fellow blogger, and he is just the best at what he does! If you are ever looking for a photographer, you can count on him.

Giveaways

@Oh_GaspBoutique is a very special one, because it is ran by my very good friend, Vanessa. Did you know her full-time gig is being a detective? How cool is that?!

@ShopMantraBoutique is another special one! It is run by Andrea, who is a major boss babe! She has so many beautiful pieces that won't break the bank!

@EnBelleEpoque is run by the sweetest couple! Brisehyda and Daniel are the definition of a power couple! They were so nice to sponsor one of our giveaways with earrings and a phone case. They launched their online boutique this year, and have the most amazing phone cases and earrings. You have to check them out!

@BrioAutoDetail was so generous and provided a free car detail to a lucky winner at the event. They are located in the Heights area, so it's super convenient to stop by during lunch or after work while you wait for traffic to die down.

@KalonSkinStudio was another giveaway sponsor. I'm sure you all are already familiar with Kenia, who I post on stories once a month when I get my facials done. She is the biggest sweetheart, and so amazing at her job! If you have been wanting to get a facial, massage, wax, etc. you should definitely check her out!

@LoveHandle was super generous to give away their phone grips in our goodie bags. Once you use their handles, you won't go back. Selfies just got a lot easier.

@PickedFlowerCo was one of the giveaway sponsors who participated in the event. They have the prettiest shop in the Heights area, and host workshops very often. Such a great activity for a date night or a girl's night out!

Thank you to all of the sponsors who made this event happen. It truly would not have been possible without them!
