Cocktails & Conversations with Mostess Box


For some time now, I’ve been wanting to get some DC girlfriends together for an intimate gathering to share stories and struggles of being a solo-prenur in the nation’s capitol. And what better occasion than to celebrate the launch of my dear friend (and Washingtonian)’s new business venture, Mostess Box!?

So on a Sunday night in March I hosted Cocktails & Conversations with Lindsey of Mostess Box. We partnered up with some amazing local businesses to help throw the event which made it even more of a celebration and so fun to support so many other fellow business owners and brands. There were delicious cheeseboards, signature cocktails and, of course, wonderful conversations and a successful evening with some pretty incredible women.

Mostess Moments

It was a huge honor to have everyone together in one room and so glad all our schedules aligned, especially since I know how super busy these successful ladies are with their hustles! Still relishing in the memories of the night. Here are some highlights...

We brainstormed ideas, gave away goodies throughout the night (including a Mostess VIP Box and Mostess Marble Slab) and everyone went home with a gift bag filled with items from our collaborators including mini bottles of Element Shrubs, spicy nut packets from Bazaar Spices and bags of Beanitos chips.

Speaking of which, a big thanks again to everyone who partnered up with us to make the evening a success!

And thanks again to all the ladies who came and snapped some gorgeous pics from the event!

The best part of was how simple it was to throw together the party! Thanks to Urban Stems for the gorgeous bouquets and Mostess Box who provided all the necessary items, delicious recipes and useful tips to make hosting stress-free and fun!
