There is nothing like the vibrant colors of reds and greens to get you in the holiday spirit. This is exactly how I felt as I walked into the Very Berry Holiday Craft blogger event hosted by Driscoll’s berries.
If you weren’t in the holiday spirit before you got there, you were definitely going to be once you left! Everything was decorated beautifully, the colors, the berries, the atmosphere, all so inviting.
Did I mention that there was a delicious spread of pastries that each contained a type of berry?!
Once the guests checked in there were to find their seat at the table, that was creatively identified by picture frame which included the name of your blog, your name and your twitter icon.
This by far was the cutest thing and so innovative!
Once I was settled in, I took myself of a little tour.
I must say the waiting staff was rather pleasant, including the bartender that added strawberries so my sparkling water although it was to go with the alcoholic beverages.
Next stop, the children’s craft area! I was able to snap a few pictures before they all sat down.
Each child was able to make their very own chocolate reindeer with lots of extra goodies for toppings. I’m sure they were having a blast as I walked past a lot of chocolate-covered faces and fingers.
Once everyone arrived, it was time for the adults to play! Celebrations.com Craft Expert Melissa Klein took the floor and shared with us what we would be working on this afternoon and the different uses of our craft.
We were provided with all of our supplies, the crowd cheered and the competition began, the winner would receive a years worth of berries and more!
Now clearly, I was not in it to win it, I would be lucky enough if I actually finished, since I was talking so much!
It wasn’t until I started looking around the room that I decided to kick myself into high gear! Needless to say that I finished, but it wasn’t my best work!
Although my masterpiece did not make the cut, the overall event was lots of fun and the strawberry tree was something that I will definitely be incorporating into my holiday decor.
