Last week Pinterest announced their very first Pinterest Ambassadors. I am so thrilled to be included in the list of pinfluencers across the U.S. to represent one of my all time favorite brands! Being the first Texas ambassador is quite an honor.
As a Pinterest Ambassador, I’ll be hosting local events in the Dallas, Texas area. This weekend I teamed up with Wholesome Grub, a family owned healthy food on the go restaurant, for a Spring Fling Pinterest Meet-Up. Pinners and their families came to enjoy a casual meet-up where we brought Pinterest to life. We actually saw the sun for the first time in weeks! I was so happy!!
Sara from Pinterest even flew in to join us. I love getting to know the Pinterest community team. They are lots of fun!
Wholesome Grub was founded by three brothers who wanted to provide fresh and healthy food to the community. The first time I stepped into their restaurant, I loved it! The food was amazing, but the DIY decor was also super cute. As I began to eat there more often, I met one of the owners who told me they got most of their decor ideas from Pinterest. I love how Oscar phrased it by saying they were just a “bunch of dudes” who didn’t know how to craft and Pinterest was a life saver. What better place to have our first Pinterest event right?
To plan for this party, I made a Pinterest Spring Fling board and began pinning ideas! You can follow the board here.
I wanted to share some simple party ideas that anyone could make this summer. Don’t you just love this edible bouquet of flowers? It’s super simple to make, especially if you order your cupcakes like I did! ha!
Since we were at a healthy food restaurant, I made some fruit flower kabobs. I used spinach for leaves, but you could also use mint.
The guys at Wholesome Grub served up the most gorgeous healthy dishes! Check out their menu here.
The kids had a total blast crafting and posing for photos!
It was so nice to talk with old friends and to meet some new ones too! I love meeting others who also share the love for Pinterest.
If you couldn’t make it to the Spring Fling Meet-Up, I hope to see you at the next event. Thanks to everyone who came out for the fun!!
