The PNW Blogger Meet-Up

We all know that I love a good party. When I heard about the Pacific Northwest Blogger’s Meet-Up I couldn’t wait to attend. The Paper Mama threw a pretty decent shin-dig with the help of many amazing sponsors. The event was located at The Lucky Lab in SE Portland. I was fortunate enough to get to meet 50 Pacific Northwest area bloggers, play a fun photo scavenger hunt game, and enjoy some tasty brews. I left with a swag bag full of awesomeness.

Just to be completely honest— networking situations such as these are incredibly difficult for me. I was excited to be able to attend the event, but was more than just a little bit nervous. I’m usually the one throwing events and working on all the details behind the scenes rather than chatting for extended periods with all the guests. I had three panic attacks due to the massive crowd (in small spaces) and trying to talk over everyone. But, these ladies were all so very sweet and friendly that halfway in I didn’t want to leave to go home to the kiddo and hubby. Such a fun time!

I can’t believe I didn’t actually take very many photos of the decor…. but, I took a ton of photos of the lovely ladies. Take this post as an excellent source of inspiration for party-clothing for a summer evening networking event. Some seriously stylish ladies in attendance!

Oh, and if you are a PNW blogger and want to attend the next event then check out the PNW Blogger website and follow along for updates about when tickets go on sale. The next event is slotted for Nov. 3 at West Elm in the Pearl district of Portland, OR.

Now, for some photo-overload. Some of these were taken with my camera and others were taken with my iPhone. Professional photos will be added once we get them from the photographer. Sara, of Sara Gray Photography, was taking photos most of the event and I can’t wait to see her work!
