Aloha friends! We’re so excited to finally share our blog on our biggest pop up to date! On June 9th we collaborated with Ellyn from Se Mari Handmade to throw such a special event. Ellyn is known for her adorable, retro and vintage-inspired kawaii fashion for kids. And what better way to celebrate her new designs than with a little vintage Hawaii Kawaii theme!
To make this popup come to life we worked with Francesca from 50 by 50 Event Design who truly cooked up some magic. Our Sweet Luau had a disco dance floor, tiki bar with the yummiest treats from Sugar Crush Sweets, cutest balloon decorations by Up Up in the Air and so much special, handmade Hawaiian decor from Francesca herself.
The day started off early as Se Mari’s customers eagerly waited way before opening to get their hands on one-of-a-kind, limited dresses. Her dresses were designed with vintage deadstock fabric that you can’t get anywhere else. Ellyn had made over 70 dresses and they all sold out within minutes of opening! Her fans traveled far and wide to not only snag up these dresses but to also meet Ellyn. While others were meeting and greeting, the kids got to enjoy some hula dancing on our Tutti Frutti disco dance floor and make sweet candy leis.
The day was just the absolute sweetest. We had so much fun putting this event together and thank everyone for coming to enjoy it with us. A special thanks to Ellyn, Francesca and her partners Up Up in The Air and Sugar Crush Sweets, Allison from @nathan_and_paige who captured all the memories and took all of these incredible photos, our swag bag partners (Parsy and the Date, Mochi Kids, Dainty Lox, Skyn Box, and Liboosha) and the Sweet Threads team for helping everything run so smoothly.
Now back to the drawing board for our next event! 🙂
