Blogger Prom 2009 is over. I almost can’t believe it. My fellow prom committee members and I had been working on planning the event for the last couple of months, sending emails back and forth every day, working with sponsors, and countless other little things that made the first Blogger Prom a most-awesome event.
Even though I was working for most of the party, I had a great time — and from the responses we’ve been getting from prom attendees, looks like most people did, too. After reading these posts, I realize I missed out on a lot, but it was all worth it because everyone else enjoyed it so much. Check out some of the party people’s posts:
Food Woolf (that’s my denim jacket with the splatter paint and my feet in the black patent leather shoes!)
Confessions of a Fat Girl/Other Musings
South Bay Foodies
The committee’s day started around 1:00 p.m., though I didn’t get to the Andaz hotel until 3:00 p.m., which was just about the time we started assembling the 200 gift bags. My entire body was sore from all the lifting, squatting and stuffing we did, but it was all worth it for the pretty-darn-amazing-if-I-do-say-so-myself gift bags. We finished just in the nick of time to get ourselves into our party outfits (I was still applying make up when the party officially started!).
Anyway, like I said, I didn’t get to try out everything at the prom nor did I get as many photos as I would have liked. So here’s what I got. If you went to Blogger Prom, please add to the Blogger Prom Flickr group!
Even though I didn’t get to meet everyone I set out to meet, those bloggers I did meet were all so cool. We have a great blogging community here in Los Angeles!
A huge thank you to Blogger Prom’s sponsors, including Andaz and RH restaurant; the Cheese Impresario for the amazing cheese; Martin Miller’s gin, Pinky Vodka, Rosangel tequila, Newcastle beer and Fresh & Easy wine for the booze; Jonathan Fong for the totally tubular floral arrangements; DJ WMDeez for the bodacious tunes; and Pure cheesecakes and PolkaTots cupcakes for the dessert (I didn’t even see the cupcakes until I looked at the Flickr photos!). And much thanks to our raffle prize and gift bag sponsors for providing memorable take-home goodies.
