Statement Maker Dinner + Giveaway

Get an inside peek at the beautiful dinner we had to kick off Alt Summit Winter 2016 and enter our giveaway to win the swag we handed out at the party!

Last week wrapped up another successful Alt Summit in Salt Lake City and we had the opportunity to sponsor and host three events this year. And it was So. Much. Fun! Getting to spend several days surrounded by inspiring and talented individuals was an incredible experience.

We kicked off the conference hosting a lovely dinner at Blue Copper Coffee Room with our dear friend Becki of Whippy Cake and were joined by 22 awesome women. All of whom are striving to be "Statement Makers" in their own lives and a force for good within their own circles of influence. (I told you they are awesome.) To go along with our Statement Maker theme, we chose to play off of Pantone's 2016 color of the year, Rose Quartz. The results? Well, thanks to the beautiful photography by Natalie Wright, you can take a look for yourself.

We were very fortunate to have the talented Natalie Malan design our menus and placeards, as well as two prints included in the swag boxes. And we couldn't have been more thrilled with how they all turned out! Natalie perfectly captured the look and feel we were going for and was an absolute dream to work with. She's also so graciously made them available to you on her blog as a free printable download.

Obviously, great food is a big part of what makes a dinner party so fantastic. And thanks to Chef Tom Call and his team, the food did not disappoint. Friends, everything -- EVERYTHING -- served was amazing. From the presentation to including dairy-free and gluten-free alternatives, from the very first course to the cheesecake finale, Chef Tom went above and beyond to make the evening special. And delicious. Really, though. The elastic waist band on my skirt was tight by the end of the night. Yes, you read that correctly. The elastic, stretchy, waist band I was wearing couldn't keep up with my enthusiasm over the food. It was that good.

To show our appreciation for the wonderful women who chose to spend their evening with us, we gave each attendee some pretty awesome swag with the help of a few of our favorite companies. Each box contained: a Cents of Style Statement Maker Graphic T-Shirt, a Cents of Style Get It Girl Tribe Bracelet, a Cents of Style Stone Necklace in blush, several packets of True Lemon Natural Lemon Flavorings, an Arvo Watch with a blush colored band, Sexy Hair Play Dirty Dry WaxMaskcara Lipstick, delicious Durci Chocolate, and Blue Copper Coffee. Like I said, some pretty awesome swag.
