We've been dreaming up this idea of collaborating and building community driven events with the brands that inspire us for quite some time now. Why? Because just like every company, the employees are what make the brand come to life. Interesting, creative and innovative humans are the backbone of every successful brick and mortar store, digital retailer and cool app that you stalk on your phone. Connecting with these inspirational people was on our bucket-list and we don't mean with a typical interview. Because well, interviews are typical. We wanted to spoil them and go all out! They do inspire us, after all. That's why we created #DreamDinnerParty. You can find out a lot about someone by asking what their dream dinner party is. But, we decided to take it even one step further and bring said dream dinner party to life because that's kinda what we are all about here at The Venue Report.

After the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, January can either be a month of anxiety and worry (trying to predict how the New Year is going to play out) or it can be a month of reflection while rehydrating the mind, body and soul. We choose the second option and so should you!

Although massages and facials can easily be the obvious go-tos when you hear those famous words, "Treat yo' self", but they also can tend to be pretty expensive. And after all that holiday gifting we understand that you need a pick-me-up that won't burn a hole in your pocket. Don't worry, friends... We've found three easy and affordable DIY face masks that only require ingredients straight out of your pantry and allows you to enjoy while relaxing in the comfort of your own home.

When we say, "We've been dreaming of this for a while,” boy, do we mean it. In early 2016, our office got a new nickname, The Greenhouse on 2nd, as our office space housed not only us humans but a variety of plants lives as well. Cacti staked their claim, vines overwhelmed the ceiling and us - well, we were all heart-eyed at the view around us. As the team grew so did our greenery collection and smorgasbord of disco balls. So why not combine the two for an epic end of the year bash, right?!

The Jungle Disco theme was set, but as planning progressed we found ourselves getting even more inspired by new beginnings, good fortune and looking forward to all that 2017 has to offer. The mystical feels spoke to our creative teams' nomadic souls and Gypsy Jungle Disco was created. After months of building up this idea, this pre-meditated party truly deserved the royal treatment so we brought in A MIHO Experience and Barcon for food and cocktails. To round out the theme, we partnered with local San Deigans and good friends Pow Wow Design Studio and Hostess Haven for magical decor and tableware. Lastly, additional greenery and florals were brought in, Eucca was a girl. Let the party begin! Welcome to our Gypsy Jungle Disco dream.
