In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we wanted to host an event for Columbus focused bloggers and what better way than to collaborate with Amanda from Girl About Columbus who was all for the idea! Of course, we had to get the help of our friend, Dalay, of Dalay Ket Event Design so she could make the event look beautiful. Paul of Paul Woo Photography worked his camera skills to capture the festivities.
We had an amazing time chatting with fellow Columbus based bloggers. We created a 5 question survey to pick everyone’s brains about their favorite spots in Columbus. Stay tuned for upcoming blog posts with those answers!
We contacted many local businesses to see if they were interested in donating items for goodie bags for our guests. We were so lucky to receive so many positive responses! Thanks to: Homage, MADE by Ngo, Meshikou, Red Velvet Cafe, Pistacia Vera, Car2Go, Posh Nail Company, and Studio 614 for the goodies!
Also, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I came up with the idea of the guests bringing canned goods to the event to donate to Mid-Ohio Foodbank. Often times we all get caught up in our own world and forget our surrounding community and the importance of being kind and helping others. I know our collected items are just a small gesture, but I hope that those reading will be inspired to donate or volunteer at their local food banks or charities.
Happy Blogsgiving! We hope this can be an annual event : )
