A few weeks ago, everyone at BFFF was buzzing about the upcoming Holly Jolly Craftmas Popup Event in Sacramento, curated by Brigitte Erwin of Artsy Heartsy Events. When the big day finally came on December 15th, it was every bit the sweet and stylish gathering we predicted– and we have the pictures to prove it! Today we’re excited to share a fun and glittery recap of the event with all our readers. From craft and beauty bars to holiday decor and BFFF’s own pop-up confetti bar in collaboration with The Confetti Bar, we’ve got it all. The lovely and talented California based Caroline of Milou and Olin captured all these photos that will give you a crash course through the day!
Makeup & hair artist Kayci Stoots of Something Blue set up a full-on lash and lip bar to keep guests looking bold and gorgeous!
Madeline Trait displayed her gorgeous wooden designed cake topper display. Fun fact: Madeline is a DIY contributor at BFFF! You’ve probably seen (and tried out) some of her fun tutorials. Her Ombre Holiday Garland DIY Tutorial is our current favorite!
We could not get enough of these gold pinecones from Tandemade.
