Mary Poppins Blogger Party~

A couple of months ago, I had the delightful opportunity to attend the Mary Poppins Blogger Party thrown by several Utah bloggers for our blog readers.  It was a blast!  And today, I wanted to share some of the details.

We're so excited to finally share all of the pictures and details of our fabulous Mary Poppins blogger party! If you'll recall, we had a giveaway where 10 blog readers and a guest were invited to attend a fun party at Toni's home (Design Dazzle), hosted by 12 Utah bloggers. We had an amazing day filled with perfect weather, gracious guests, wonderful hosts, delicious food and amazing sponsors & vendors! We hope you enjoy browsing through the beautiful pictures of the event taken by Lyndsey at Lyndsey Fagerlund Photography.

Wow, I have not thought about Mary Poppins in a long time. It was one of my favorite movies as a child. My favorite elements from the party are the invitation and the hanging umbrellas. What fun!
