challenge | so fresh and so clean…


Happy Monday! I am thrilled to announce this week we will be hosting the 2nd annual celebration design challenge!!! Hosting one last fall was such a joy- I have asked a few of my favorite celebration bloggers to contribute for another round. The next four days you can expect to see event designs that will bring gorgeous inspiration to reality, for late winter gatherings.

Plus, there is an exciting prize at stake. The winner of our challenge will receive the opportunity to style their own shoot for Ruche! They will win a plane ticket, a new outfit and the chance to see their design work featured by this fabulous store, all while receiving the career boosting opportunity of working alongside their creative team. A valuable prize indeed.

The wonderful challenge judges are Crystal Gentilello Co-Founder and Editor in Chief of Rue Magazine, Elaine from Style Me Pretty and from Mai from the Ruche clothing company. They will be judging the designers on the style and handcrafted pieces of their “so fresh and so clean” party scene.

Cheer our guests on this week as they share individual visions for well styled, handcrafted celebration inspiration.

    Ooh how exciting! I loved the fall challenge – in fact, that’s how I first came by your blog, via Melanie of You Are My Fave. Now you’re one of my faves and I come here all the time! So excited about seeing what your guests have in store for us this week!

      Kelly, thanks! I’ve come to adapt the motto, you never know until you ask and have been crazy about putting myself out there lately. It’s not always a win but I am really excited about what is in store over the coming months here! Thanks for the sweet encouragement.

      Plus, Ruche has ended up being an amazing company to work with- so glad I asked:)
