Happy Thursday friends!
If you follow me on Instagram (@pastelnpinkblog) or Snapchat (amy.pnp) then you know that I had spent most of my 4th of July at the Craft City Social's first annual 4th of July Splash Bash! I was at Craft City Social's grand opening last month with Annalise (see post here) and it was great to be back again for their 4th of July event. I was even able to meet up with Annalise from Southern Belle in Training and Cara from Caralina Style!
This was my second year spending 4th of July in Charlotte and I was no disappointed! As much as I love being home with my family, Charlotte just has more events and to attend and not to mention a killer fireworks show! I spent most of the day portion of 4th of July at Craft City's 4th of July event and had such a fun time.
The pool party event was the perfect way to spend the day portion of 4th of July. They even had a festive version of their sparkle pops which was made of strawberry lemonade and limeade with blueberries. I was a big fan of those. I mean, fruity popsicles and prosecco? Yes please!
I had taken R.J. (aka Mr. Camera man) as my plus one to the event and he ended up ordering a black angus burger that came with firecracker chunky salsa and southern potato salad. He reported that the food tasted as good as it looked!
The rest of the afternoon was filled with catching up with each other, taking photos (and being photobombed!), and enjoying the beautiful view of Uptown Charlotte. Word on the street was that there was a rubber ducky fight during the event and I wish I had shown up earlier to witness it! Wouldn't that be a sight to see?
The 4th of July Splash Bash was definitly a great way to spend the 4th of July. I love hosting get togethers with friends, but I definitly do not like the stress and cleaning up afterwards so an event like this is something I would love to do again with friends for another holiday.
