post No.594 The Summer Social

I’m finally posting the pictures from the Summer Social! A ton has happened since then so I admit, it took me a little longer than expected. This was truly one of our best Urbanic parties ever.


There was such a good social vibe that night, and we had a blast hanging out with all 200+ of you who showed up. Thanks for coming out!  The whole idea formed when chatting with Smock about throwing an event together. Of course making paper pinwheels out of their double sided wraps was a perfect project for this party, but they got even more involved than that and flew in from New York to host this night together with us.  (thanks friends at Smock for helping make this happen!)

As I’m sure you already know, we had an incredibly talented team. The pictures below are by the awesome husband and wife team The Why We love. Danielle and Kevin have an amazing eye, and fully captured the details of the night. (plus they were super fun to hang out with!). The Bash Please girls decked out the place with these gorgeous flower arrangements and strung their handmade fringed fabric bunting to swoop across the back yard. So cute. I wanted to leave them up forever! Sweet Lucies pulled up their vintage Italian ice cream cart and scooped out their amazing organic ice cream. It’s hands down the finest in L.A and many new addicts were formed that night! The lovely Mrs. Lilien hand-squeezed hundreds of lemons to whip up the tastiest cocktail for her lemonade stand. I witnessed Kelly do this and was impressed beyond measure at her zest for making this drink into a masterpiece. Our pals at 100 LayerCake helped glue it all together the day-of (literally, they were using glue dots!) and covered the event in their perfect signature way. Finally Tallu-lah donated a bulk load of adorable cotton Los Angeles totes to give out that night as a party favor. Total extra surprise detail that guests were so happy to receive.

If you weren’t able to make it, I’ll be posting the video next week, so hang tight for that.

in the meantime, happy 4th of July weekend friends!
