the bloom event & the emily font

The bloom event took place this past weekend and it was a great success.

marisa & emily

Not only did we raise money for the Butterworth family {that is Marisa on the left} to adopt their baby girl from Ethiopia, but we spent a beautiful Seattle morning chatting, eating tasty treats and creating a few different simple flowers.

Marisa did the most amazing and thorough job planning this event – with every detail covered – and that made it so easy to relax and enjoy ourselves.

A special thanks to Angie’s Little Cake Co. for the fancy cupcakes – yum yum yum.



Thank you so much to all of you who came to the event. It was great to meet you and I know Jesse & Marisa were so blessed by your generosity!

    Love this! If you ever find yourself in So Cal doing a workshop, I am SOOO THERE! :) Curious: where did you get all those color coordinated buttons?!

    What a wonderfully fun way to support such an awesome cause. What a blessing you are to your friend & so many others. I just LOVE all your blooms. I like that they are very user friendly & that they look great by themselves, or with your other stuff. Some of my favorite combinations are the button flowers in a frame with the monogrammed art underneath, a large gathered flower with a small rolled flower as its center, and the cute little circle with tulle that’s in your shoe shirt tutorial as a hair clip. So fun & a great way to use my girly-ness since I have four beautiful BOYS!!
    Thanks again:)

    Such a lovely event. I wish I were in the area to attend, but this is something that I could try at my church. Thanks for the inspiration.

    You are SO TALENTED Emily! Is it fair that I kinda think of you as my friend because you’re Hill’s sister? And I MIGHT brag on you all the time to my friends that blog and tell them they HAVE to look at your blog because it’s AMAZING? Because you are. And I’m so happy ladies across this nation get to see it too :) You’re doing great!!!

    Thank you for a great event! It was so special to share in such a wonderful cause, and to have a brunch with my sis (away from brood of boys) :). We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves – so much so that I forgot to introduce myself and say thank you!

    Have a lovely lunch with Melaine today. You are both examples of our “Local Brilliance” !
    Best of love and blessings!

  25. Meg June 8, 2011 at 5:13 am #

    I wish Tennessee wasn’t so far away from Seattle. Not only does it look like a good time, but what an encouragement to that mom adopting.

  26. Jaclyn June 8, 2011 at 4:45 am #

    Everything looks so nice! Sounds like you had a great time! Wish I could have been there!!
