Happy Mail Happy Hour + Minted GIVEAWAY!

by Lila on February 4, 2015

Happy Mail Happy HourMy favorite part of any holiday is that it encourages community. I get so caught up in the comings and goings of life, I find it easy to forget to reach out to people and tell them how important they are to me. But when a holiday like Valentine’s Day rolls around, I get excited about finding ways to show my people that I care.

Happy Mail Happy HourNow, I will be the first to admit that I do not always succeed in following through on my excitement about sending out thoughtful messages. Occasionally I have found a piece of beautifully packaged mail, ready to go, and waiting for an address in a pile on my desk, never having found its way to the person who it was intended for. Yes, this has happened… more than once.

Lucky for me the lovely Bobbie of Even if Nobody Reads This hosted one of her fabulous Happy Mail Happy Hours just in time for me to be truly ready to celebrate all the love this Valentine’s Day! Minted sponsored Bobbie’s happy event this time around and I think it may have been thebest one yet! Surrounded by beautiful paper, delicious food, and incredible company, I found my space to celebrate, collaborate, and create.

Happy Mail Happy HourThe venue was beautiful, the company inspiring, the paper gorgeous! Printed garland hung between chandeliers. Minted Valentine’s Day cards sat waiting for us to fill with sweet messages. There was also a drool-worthy cocktail created by none-other-than Ashley Rose Kirschling, mixologist extraordinaire. There is something about a signature cocktail that makes me feel a little bit special. Ashely combined some of my favorite flavors, grapefruit and ginger, together with a crazy-good new flavor of Skyy vodka, Texas Grapefruit, to create a dangerously delicious concoction. She also gave me tips on how to perfect my homemade ginger syrup and brought her own set of vintage glassware. Need I say more?

Happy Mail Happy HourIt is no secret that I love paper. So much. Minted had me swooning at the shades of blush and cream that covered the table. I have a particularly large crush on their classroom Valentine sets. Too much cute!

I love all of the colors and designs that Minted offers. I have ordered my Christmas card from them before and was very happy with the product I received. I also really love the baby announcements they have!

Oh, this was SUCH a fun night and it was so great to see you (and your GORGEOUS SKIRT. and our matching flannel.)

PS- that thing about finding little packages all addressed and completed but never sent? ME. TOO.
