As small business owners, we don’t have the softball tournaments that Starbucks employees have, the picnics that the City of Shoreline employees have, or the holiday parties that Microsoft employees have. But we do have cocktail parties, and lots of them!! Each year, some of the fabulous companies that we advertise with have a “thank you party” and invite all their advertisers. They’re so much fun- time to schmooze, reconnect, and have great cocktails and apps. This year Seattle Bride Magazine threw their annual “Best Of” party at the gorgeous and modern new Pan Pacific Hotel at the crossroads of South Lake Union/Capitol Hill/Downtown. Here are some of the pictures that we snapped with just a few of our friends (and our dorky little nametags….. )
Our friend from Alaska Nicholle, the fabulous Barbie Hull, Me, and super sweet Sharlane Chase with our first copy of this summer’s magazine before it hit the newsstands.
Some yummy coconutty frou frou drink- the food was gorgeous.
The super spunky Alice Hayes and I
Incredibly vivacious Kim and Adam Bamberg of Junebug and LaVie Photography.
A really off center self portrait of myself, Sheila Addleman, Nicholle’s eyeballs, and Barbie. Poor Nicholle- we kinda lost her in this one!!
