Friday, August 17 – Sunday, August 19 I along with my blogger bestie and Co-Founder, Kay Elle held the Inaugural Blogger Xchange Xpo in Nashville, TN. We started doing single day events for Blogger Xchange and as we grew, we knew one day wasn’t enough. We had been planning the event and promoting it for months and then it finally came. Our first Xpo was a success before it even started, we were featured on Talk of the Town and News Channel 2. Since then, Blogger Xchange has also been covered in XO Necole.
We kicked off the weekend Friday night with a rooftop party at The George Jones. It’s located on 2nd Ave in downtown Nashville and is a fabulous space. From the rooftop views of the river to the full 2nd floor museum, it’s a night of fun. The cute signage you see was created by one of our vendors, Olivia from Crafted by Heart.
We enjoyed complimentary bites from George Jones along with their Friday night live band. We had 100 guests in attendance that stayed until the very end. I couldn’t think of a better way to kick off our big weekend than on a warm summer night surrounded by my blogger friends.
For me, the party ended at 10:30PM as I had to get up at 5:00AM Saturday for day 2 of the Xpo. Read about Day 2 at redpepper oh my next post.
