Our Birthday Party + Summer Solstice Celebration

This past month, Glitter Guide turned 8! Taylor shared her thoughts on the past 8 years, but wanted to give you a peek into the birthday celebration/summer solstice party we had with our sweet friends at Pigment. If you didn’t already know, we’re a small remote team who doesn’t get to see each other all too often. So it was really special that Taylor and I got to celebrate together in my hometown of San Diego!

Pigment is one of my favorite places in all of San Diego, so being able to have our birthday in one of our favorite spots was great. Thank you so much to all the amazing Pigment employees and vendors who made such a fun day possible!

The turnout was amazing! And it’s always a bonus when events are kid-friendly, as it makes it so much easier to see all our busy friends.

Hair by Ryleigh and Cut & Dry provided the cutest braid bar where guests got the most beautiful twists and braids dotted with summer chamomile.

So many yummy drinks, both kid- and adult-friendly! Boochcraft, Verse + Vine wines, You & Yours Distilling Co., Boxed Water and Olipop provided all the libations to quench our thirst, and MIHO Catering Co. brought the most delicious bites for all the hungry guests.

The first 100 guests received the most amazing goodie bags. SunJellies retro bags were stuffed with treats from Tailored Union, Sugarfina, Floss Gloss, Passion Planner and more! They flew so fast even Taylor and I didn’t get to snag one!

Did you know Taylor’s wallpaper collection with Lulu & Georgia is in two different Pigment locations? It looks so perfect here!

We clearly nailed the photo booth 😂. Thanks to Union Booth for bringing the fun to the party and making it extra special.

Thanks again to Pigment and everyone else who helped make our birthday so special!
