Design Bloggers Conference: 3 Days, 3 Parties

With the Design Bloggers Conference happening in Los Angeles this past week, along came several invites to parties all around town. While it was hard to make each and every one, I did have the opportunity to attend the Hollyhock party hosted by Suzanne Rheinstein, the Harbinger party with TRADHome and Kravet, and the Grace Home Furnishings Party.

Suzanne Rheinstein, proprietor of Hollyhock hosted a kick off party in honor of Ronda Carman of All the Best Blog at the start of the 2012 Design Bloggers Conference.

Lots of famaliar faces!

The weather couldn't have been more perfect for guests to enjoy mingling in the courtyard that separates Suzanne Rheinstein's showroom (in the front) and offices (in the back).

The Harbinger party hosted by TRADHome and Kravet housed a packed crowd that read like a "Who's Who" of designers, bloggers, magazine representatives, vendors, pr people, & more. I don't think I have ever looked around a room and seen one familiar face after another!

My last party of the three days was a stop at the beautiful and inviting Grace Home Furnishings showroom in the heart of my own neighborhood!

It was fun talking to Roger Stoker, proprietor of Grace Home Furnishings and meeting Bethanne from Curry & Company. Oh! And did I mention Gracie was there too!?

A room vignette at Grace Home Furnishings - the showroom is always so well put just want to stay and sit awhile!

...or sleep!

Thanks Gracie for hosting such a nice party!
