Hi everyone,

All I can say is "What an amazing experience".  I loved every single thing about this jam packed two day crafting event.  I'll have to break up this post because I have so many photos to go through and Vanessa has a lot of the celebrity photos that I want to share so today's post is about decorations.

As we arrived to the event we were greeted by these three beautiful ladies.

Then, as we entered Noah's (venue location) we were greeted with bright beautiful colors of SPARK!

This was our meeting hall, where we gathered in the mornings, at meal times, and at night. The ceilings were decorated with playing cards, monopoly money, magazine pages, and yes that is Dear Lizzy's bicycle hanging center stage.  There were chandeliers and dress forms and all sorts of vintage pieces. It was breathtaking.

Every table had a different center piece beautifully put together.

Candy, candy, and more candy.  There was candy everywhere.  This candy station was located on the third floor where most of our classes were held. You could enter this room at any point in the day and take a break, grab a drink, grab some candy or even grab some yummy vegetables and chips.  They thought of everything.

There's definitely more to come so stay tuned. I would love to hear what you think so don't be shy and leave me a comment.

It was so wonderful to have met you and Vanessa! Kim and I really enjoyed getting to know you better on Sunday morning at the hotel. You had us laughing a mile a minute! It definitely was an amazing weekend. Thank you so much for commenting on The DIY Dish. Best of luck to you in your future. It doesn't take long to be with you before you realize what a wonderful mother and friend you are to those around you. I would love to stay in touch.

Thanks again!
