#LOVEYOURLOCAL INSTAMEET

My pals Sarah (@ladygolightly) and Renae (@colouranddust) put together this amazing instameet called Love Your Local in Tacoma, cohosted by and held at Satori Boutique (@satoriboutique) on October 3. When I say “put together” I mean styled, designed, organized, hustled… all in their free time. Say whaaaat?

#lovelocalinstameet was created to get Instagrammers from Seattle and Tacoma (and beyond!) to meet in real life, but also to support local business in the Tacoma area. To see everyone’s snaps from the event, check the #lovelocalinstameet tag on Instagram…they’re great! Also, check the bottom of this post for a complete list of vendors and participants (it is LONG!).

So let’s check out the party, shall we?

I’m ready. I’ve got this balloon from Up & Up Balloons.

Let’s go inside! First, we need a nametag.

Write your name and instagram handle so people will recognize you!

Got one? Good. Perhaps you want to build a terrarium? They start at $15.
