Each year in October, I look forward to taking part in Mt. Baker Imaging’s Mammogram party! This is an annual event put on in my home town during breast cancer awareness month, to encourage women to get their annual mammogram. Women who come in and either schedule or complete their mammogram are congratulated with goodies and gift bags, and then have the opportunity to shop with some fab vendors and even get pink hair extensions.
Just a quick sneak peek of some of the products I’m putting together for the Annual Mammogram Party I’m taking part in this Friday, with Mt. Baker Imaging. This event helps remind and encourage women to schedule and/or get their annual mammogram while also raising awareness about breast cancer. Women ages 40 and over can walk in with no prior appointment necessary. I’ll have a booth setup with a variety of very pink & posh products and sweet treats for purchase/donation and will be giving a percentage of all proceeds to Team Julia, a local charity providing assistance to individuals affected by breast cancer, while researching for a cure.
Earlier in October I took part in an annual Mammogram Party in my home town. This was an event put together locally to help raise awareness about breast cancer and provide knowledge and important info to women about annual screenings. Those who attended were able to schedule their screening appointments while also enjoying prizes, goodie bags treats, hair extensions and plenty of shopping from some fabulous vendors.
I can hardly believe we’re halfway through October! It’s been such a busy month already with 2 events and many behind the scenes projects that I’ll have to share with you in the coming weeks!
Over the weekend I completed 1 of two Breast Cancer Awareness Events for the month. It felt great to come together with other small businesses in the community for such a wonderful cause! Together we collected an awesome sized donation for Team Julia!
The Seahawks are going to the Superbowl, and Valentine’s day is nearing, and I have yet to post about either topic. This is because I’ve been incredibly busy in life, and with PLD lately. Right now I’m working on launching new products for the shop, as well as planning and prepping for a few upcoming events happening in the next few months. The first is a sponsorship for a West Elm Event in Orlando hosted by Sarah the DIY and Lifestyle Blogger from Sarahhearts. The event happening February 6th is called Meet+Make, where guests will enjoy a fun evening, creating Valentine’s themed artwork and crafts.
Back in September I had the pleasure of working with Dana Muchow from Spokane Bridal Blog for Bride’s Night Out Spokane, an event featuring top wedding vendors, loads of inspiration, products, designs and an evening of fun for many brides to be!
The Spokane Bridal Blog Marketplace showcase was setup within the event, which was coordinated by Alisa Lewis Event Designs and Attic Rentals, and intricately styled to capture the essence of a Parisian sidewalk market with a mix of vintage decor, furniture and products. Posh Little Designs was amongst many of the vendors who sold products within the showcase.
Last Friday was the 10th Annual Mammogram Party for a local radiology center, Mt. Baker Imaging. This is an event that they put on every year to raise awareness about breast cancer while also reminding women 40 and over to get their annual mammogram.
This year, I was invited to be among the many fabulous vendors at the party, which was broadcasted live by one of our local radio stations. The turnout was great! Several women came in to complete their mammograms, and those who did were given free goodie bags and pink flowers. It was truly an honor to be involved! I honestly had the best time designing and styling my display and adding many of my favorite DIY touches for the signature posh feel. This is the first time that I’ve set up as a vendor for a local event, so seeing everything come together was like a dream come true!
Fall is officially upon us and I have all things pink on the brain. Not only because it’s a rather trendy color for the season but also because the color pink is the designated hue for Breast Cancer Awareness, and October just happens to be Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Organizations from all across the US will be participating in the fight against breast cancer by going pink and I’m honored to be participating as well!
My daughter’s 3rd Birthday is only 6 days away and since I’ll be busy prepping the entire week, I’ll be photographing via Instagram and blog posting from my iPhone. Loving technology these days!
As you may already know, the theme for her party is Cinderella and one of the items on our dessert menu among many others is sugar cookies. I always try to do as much as I can in advance so I made these cookies last night and plan to freeze and get them decorated by the weekend.
