Summer Boutique

We held our first EVER Summer Boutique this past Sunday.  I turned my living, dining room, and backyard into a shopping experience.  I moved all my furniture and setup tables for 10 businesses.  The Summer Boutique featured woman small business owners in the East Bay area of Northern California.  The concept was simple:  10 business owners, invite friends, kids play, while the adults shop.

As an added bonus all shoppers that bought a product or signed up for a service at the boutique received a raffle ticket and was entered into a drawing to win a $40 target gift card.  We had one of our Vendors/Customers from Gigi’s Nursery go home with the prize.


The Summer Boutique was setup with each table having a different design/feel based on the vendors items.  Additional decor was a few paper flowers on the walls, boxes wrapped in craft paper with bows, and brown craft gift bags.  I also, moved furniture and a mirror to the patio to give it more of an inside feel.


The snack table had banana cinnamon cupcakes, brownies, chips, crackers, and popcorn.  I wanted easy to eat snacks that didn’t require a fork or plate.  Some of the waters were donated by the San Leandro/San Lorenzo No Excuse Mom Workout team.


Entertainment for the kids

We had an amazing face painter, Laura from Laura Lemon Fairy  join us.  Check out her Yelp page here:

There was also a small play area inside for the kids and in the backyard the kids climbed on the jungle gym and jumped on the trampoline.   To make sure the kids were safe, my amazing babysitter joined the event to keep an eye on everyone.
