Things I Love Pinterest Party

This party has been in the making for a while.
As I mentioned to my guests, I'd been waiting patiently to be invited to a Pinterest Party since I stumbled upon this article.

The idea looked so fun!
And if I hadn't planned my own party, I'd probably still be waiting.
I'm glad that I took matters into my own hands.

A girl can't wait forever.

The theme as you can see by the graphic was pink ballerinas.
I didn't want to send it out on the invitations as I wanted my guests to see the theme all pulled together at the party.

ballerina rice krispie cupcakes
mason jar favors to be filled in the candy bar
DIY gifts and candy bar (including peppermint taffy, good and plenty and watermelon gummis)
All of the food and drinks for the party were inspired by Pinterest.
Take a look.

tomato, mozzarella, basil skewers with balsamic drizzle
avocado hummus and pretzels
strawberries, basil, brie and honey on crackers
veggie cups in ranch dip
lemonade bar with strawberries, blueberries and raspberries

Wondering how the heck a Pinterest Party works?
Here are the deets.

Each guest brings the necessary items/ingredients/directions to create the craft, item or recipe to the party. (Making sure to have it wrapped.)
Then gifts are exchanged - "white elephant style - allowing each guest to take home a fun, unique creation!

This party was so much fun. 
These 10 lovelies ladies attended the party.
It was really cool to see the different DIY ideas these ladies brought to the exchange.

If you're interested in seeing or pinning the DIY gift ideas given at the party, follow this Pinterest board.
I'll be adding the pins this week.

Don't you just love Pinterest!

Looks like fun, Jessica. Let me see if I got it. Each guest picks a craft off of Pinterest that they want to do. They buy enough supplies for each guest at the party to make one. Wouldn't that mean that each guest makes ones of each craft? So where does the gift exchange fit in?
