4th Annual Pinterest Party!

If you've been following my blog for a while, you'll know that every spring I host a Pinterest party and it's a ton of fun. This year was no different, a bunch of ladies got together to eat good food and craft and great fun was had by all! Seriously though, this is a super fun event and I think everyone should have parties like this at least once a year. I'm so glad that I decided to start this tradition back in 2014. If you want to read about previous years, you can click here to read about the first one, the second one didn't get a blog post and the third one was documented here.

If you're new to the blog, you may be wondering what a Pinterest party is. There are many ways to execute one, but how I choose to do one is like this. Invite a ton of women, ask everyone to bring a dessert or appetizer that they found the recipe for on Pinterest and then I purchase supplies to make a craft that I found on Pinterest. I've also been asking people to bring a small monetary donation to go towards craft supplies, so that I don't break the bank hosting the party.


We always have way too much food but it is all so delicious and we stuff ourselves with as much of it as we can. Because seriously, the food is the main draw of the event.



I had options for crafts this year, mainly due to some stuff I already had on hand and because I like to let people choose what they make. Options included painting flower pots, decorating mini bulletin boards, colouring, or embroidering hearts onto cards (leftovers from last years party).



One thing I really appreciated from this year was that my house was much more in shape than last year and I actually knew where my craft supplies were! Hooray for progress with home renovations!


There were 10 of us ladies, which was the perfect number to fit around our kitchen table. I had invited around 45 women and kind of hoped not everyone could make it, since fitting them all in my house would have been tricky. Ten was a good number.


The finished products were awesome and I loved to see everyone's different takes on a similar craft. Creative minds and all!







So there you have it, my fourth annual Pinterest party was a success! Until next year!

Has anyone else ever hosted a Pinterest party? Or a craft party? Or something similar? I'd love to hear your experiences.

    1. Thank you! Maybe next year I'll be a little more careful with the guest list, imagine if they had all said yes!
