Last Sunday I teamed up with Bumble BFF in hosting a brunch for some of my old and new friends alike. We gathered at Ocotillo Phoenix for some sangria, cocktails, food, and what was obviously about to be a lot of laughs. I towed in eight gift bags, a bouquet of sunflowers and daisies, and two teeny-tiny succulents.
As we waited for the other girls to arrive, we ordered a few pitchers of red sangria and fruit salads.
For the ladies who didn't already have the Bumble BFF app, I helped them download it and set up their profiles! I always describe it as the dating app for friendships; it gathers all the girls in your set mile range and you can go through their profiles, see their interests, and chat if you feel like it. This is really great for people who are solo travelers, moving to a new state, or if you're like me, always looking to meet new people!
Opening the gift bags was definitely a highlight of the brunch. I spent all morning wrapping and filling the keychain size Sriracha bottles, so I was definitely pleased to see all the smiles! The gift bag itself was a yellow tote bag that says "B U M B L E", a denim, "LUCKY BEE" baseball hat, a mini Sriracha bottle, an adorable heart pin that reads "QUEEN BEE", a candle, two shimmer lip balms, and I just had to add an organic honey stick to play up on the whole bumble bee theme.
We finished off the brunch with cocktails that all happened to be both pretty and pink, while we made plans for the near future. Maybe New Orleans? Or a casual pool day?
