I’m so excited to finally share all of the pictures and details of our fabulous Mary Poppins Blogger Party! Do you remember, we had a giveaway where 10 blog readers and a guest were invited to attend a fun party at Toni’s home (Design Dazzle), hosted by 12 Utah bloggers (including me). We had an amazing day filled with perfect weather, gracious guests, wonderful hosts, delicious food and amazing sponsors and vendors! Here are some great pics to browse of the event taken by Lyndsey at Lyndsey Fagerlund Photography.
