How to Get Your Home Office Really Working

22 January 2015

A Few Holidays Later, and a Big Bad Boss Party to Show for it!

I have been out of touch on this blog for a little while, huh?! Well, I'm alive again and so excited to share with you what I've been doing!! First up- the Like A Boss Party!! 


 





Shannon Smith and I threw a holiday office party for local creative entrepreneurs who wouldn't otherwise have a traditional office space to party in. :) It was so fun, and actually doubled as a way to just gather all these local small businesses in this growing creative industry. The event was at the beautiful Timothy Paul Bedding and Home on 14th in DC. Thanks so much to Tim and Mia for letting us use their space!! So nice, check it out!!





Those amazing balloons were donated to us from Steph Shives Studio too!


D.C. has never typically been known for its art scene or creativity in a metropolis of politicians and government employees. Only recently has this young creative industry really began to flourish, and we are very excited to be a part of it.

Many of the guests included interior designers, fashion and lifestyle bloggers, and small business entrepreneurs. Many of us were women entrepreneurs as well. The venue, food, drink, flowers, professional photography, gift bags, and decorations were all contributed by local small business owners. It was just a huge group effort and collaboration that turned out to be so much fun!



TWO cases of this yummy wine was donated to us from  Great Frogs Winery in Annapolis, MD

These props by The Manic Moose were a hit for our Photo Booth!



#likeaboss gift totes were given to all of our guests, and made by Dream State Shop

They were filled with planners by Minted, and pens and notebooks by Poppin'

 Heller's Bakery gave us some of the yummiest cookies!!



And these bon bons are as delicious as they are beautiful. Thank you Jason Andelman of Artisan Confections

Liza of Studio DBI created some stunning bouquets for the night as well.

And they smelled good too!

Then we had a giveaway with this pillow contributed by Belquist

This necklace by Wrist Soiree, and a Faux Fur Tablet case by JWS Shop


The best part of all were our lovely guests!

Thanks to everyone involved on this night.  It felt like a step forward for the already established and rapidly growing creative side of DC. Who's ready to do it all again next year!? :)
