If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you know that my blog officially turned 5 on February 11th, 2015! To celebrate I hosted a blogiversary party at one of my favorite boutiques in Houston, Lily Rain. The event was held the day after my actual anniversary due to several fashion event conflicts on Wednesday, the 11th. The store manager at Lily Rain and their staff were so friendly and helpful with the party! For the party, I brought in food from Kroger's (officially obsessed with their party trays ever since they sponsored the Houston Fashion Bloggers' Holiday Party back in December). For entertainment, I brought in BoothRUs photobooth. My guests and I had tons of fun taking silly photos in the photo booth.

I also hosted a trivia for prizes. I created a 13 question sheet with questions on Live Life in Style and whoever answered the most questions correctly received a prize! I also handed out tickets for raffle prizes! By the end of the night, everyone had a prize in their hand! We capped the evening with a "faux champagne" toast and marble cake! Faux champagne because I'm not the biggest fan of the taste of champagne, so I opted for sparking grape juices instead! Hahaha. I was so busy mingling with my guests, that I didn't even have the chance to shop! That night Lily Rain offered a 20% off discount to all of my guests!  Check out photos from the event below take by Photographer Erick Faubricio!

I had placards around the party with all of the social media tags! I love to do that! It makes it easy for guests to remember what to share on social media!
