On April 27th, I hosted a Gal Meetup for 30 girls at Station House in Downtown St. Pete. It was by far my favorite event that I have ever thrown!
There was just something about including an educational workshop, DIY workshop, and lunch all in one. It really opened up the opportunity for the girls to talk to each other more and offer deeper business insights to one another. I loved seeing them all interact and hang out together, I was like a proud mom hahaha!
To give more background of the day, we all met on the fourth floor of Station House and started the day with a chat from me about social media and inbound marketing! After this, we all broke for a delicious lunch sponsored by Better Byrd and ate it out on the lawn. Even though it was blazing’ hot outside, the girls were total troopers!
After lunch, we decided to take the blankets from the other lawn and move them inside (because it was wayyyy too hot by this point) to do the flower bouquet workshop with Posies Flower Truck! According to all of the gals, this was their favorite part of the day! They loved learning about how to cut the flowers, take care of them, and place them in a vase. It was also a super relaxing activity to do!
After everyone had made their bouquets, we all took the elevator down to take pictures with the truck. That was so fun! It was neat to see how everyone arranged their flowers differently and also cool to watch the girls create content!
Once we all finished with pictures (and snagged an amazing group shot) I took the girls back upstairs to grab their goody bags and then we all said our goodbyes!
Overall, it was such a fun event! I loved meeting so many new ladies and being able to provide the opportunity to spend a fun day together. Since it was such a success, I’m already planning a similar one for later this year so stay tuned to @galgetaway to be in the know!
(Huge thank you to all the gals that came out and all our amazing sponsors!! I am so appreciative of you!)
