BlogLove™ Events

The next part of our LoveFeast Table journey we want to introduce you to is our BlogLove™ events.  The idea of hosting in-real-life events was pretty natural for us.  You see, we hosted a ton of events together, back in the day when we lived in the same state of Maryland.  We hosted showers, dinner parties, plotted wedding tablescaping and backyard BBQ’s, evening dinners on porches, picnics and a Valentines Dinner at Kristin and Devon’s coffee shop.  Planning a party has always been a part of our friendship.  After we started blogging and went to some local meet-ups, we both wanted to meet the bloggers in the cities we lived in Minneapolis and Baltimore.  We decided then to host gatherings for other bloggers so that we could meet them in-real-life.

We plan each BlogLove™ event to be experiential and inspiring.  We think when bloggers come together to experience something beautiful, interesting or meaningful they get to know each other more and walk away inspired.  That is how connections happen.  When bloggers, brands and businesses come together in a wonderful environment, creativity is sparked and conversations begin.  We love to help create that kind of synergy.  We think our readers benefit too!  We have new blogs ideas, people and brands to introduce them to!

We plan each BlogLove™ with all the guests in mind.  We want them to feel welcomed, included, entertained and walk away with some inspiration.  Here are some of our past events.

Our first event was BlogLove™ Zeke’s held at Zeke’s Coffee in Baltimore, Maryland.  Since Kristin and Devon use to own a coffee shop, it was a natural place to start.  The experience that night included a coffee tasting, a tour of the roastery and conversation and connections between a group of mostly food bloggers.

The next BlogLove™ we planned around a summer vacation.   Kristin’s family was coming out to visit our family in Minnesota. We planned it in Chris Ann’s  small town and were surprised and thrilled when bloggers from all over the Twin Cities and even Iowa made the trek for BlogLove™ European Marketplace.

We had such a great time with the gals from Aveda at “European Marketplace” that it was wonderful to get away for a “Moment of Wellness” at the Aveda store in Edina Minnesota to plan our next event.  We were introduced to and pampered with Aveda products and had a great time at BlogLove™ Aveda.

Our next event was in Baltimore, BlogLove™ Takes Flight.  It was held in a trapeze studio inside an old warehouse in the middle of the city.  We were inspired by the work of a trapeze artist, who explained to us the art of non-verbal language in a way that inspired a wonderful conversation between our guests.

Our latest event was BlogLove™ Spark & Style.  This event was sponsored by Therapon.  We  introduced our guests to Therapon’s skin care at a fashion focused event at a boutique.  Blogger guests walked the runway in inspired fashions, got make-up tips from Chanel from the Mall of America and nibbled on treats by LoveFeast Table including our very own Sparktini we created for the event.

We have a great time planning our events.  If you are a brand or business or blogger that would like to sponsor, participate or add swag to an event we would love to hear from you.  We are always looking for creative ideas, stories and people to partner with.

BlogLove™ Events are experiential blogger networking events that bring together bloggers, brands and businesses  in an intimate experience that inspires creativity, conversation and relationships.
