Rainbow Light Event Recap

Women need women. We need each other to lean on. We need each other to support each other. Motherhood is hard. And there are just some trials we go through that only women can understand.

So a couple weeks ago I was able to host a lovely dinner in an orchard to promote wellness among women with some of my favorite friends. The event was sponsored by Rainbow Light Prenatals. I was so happy to throw the event for them as they have a great product.

Rainbow Light Prenatals are a fantastic set of vitamins to take you from preconception to postpartum. The vitamins specialize in providing the exact nutrition your body needs to get through creating a life. Amazing, right?

So to celebrate and honor our own wellness we met for a dinner and yoga practice. The event was held at Rowleys Red barn located in Santaquin, Utah along the hills. It is just 20 minutes south of the busy cities. Rowleys Red Barn is a family owned farm ran by brothers and specializing in selling local and country inspired goods.

As you pull up, you park just north of the large red barn. There are cherry trees lining your view and to right, and to your left, apples. We walk into one row to find a boho themed dinner waiting along the row. Pallets make up the tables lined with blankets and quilts.

Beyond the table, there is a macrame backdrop supported by a gold backdrop stand and embellished with a pom-pom cluster. You can scroll to the bottom to see how I made it. And along the bottom was baskets of flowers, yoga mats, and a leather pouf.

I decorated the tables with gold chargers, jasmine tea flowers blooming in their cups, flea market vases, a woven rug runner, and custom names printed on the tables. There also was supplies for Pom Pom making and yarn to match the backdrop. And to top it off bottles of Rainbow Light.

The dinner was salad, meats, cheeses, some donations of pizza from Little Caesars, Donuts from Dunken Donuts, raspberry lemonade and apples. Along the plates were apples from the orchard. And along the tables were bags of goodies from local brands.

The swag bags were generously donated from these brands. Every lady received a top from My Sisters Closet which is located in Spanish Fork and Draper. They are one of my favorite places to shop for clothing. Attendees also received a custom bag from DRT SHRT. I loved working with them because they custom printed a logo I had designed for the event!

In their bags were goodies from Dollar Maxi Club who sends out monthly boxes to cover your feminine needs. And in the bag was a gift card from Rod Works who I absolutely love! I used to work for Rod Works as their social media specialist and I have been in love with their home decor ever since. They are located all up and down the west coast with five locations just here In Utah.

hey also received coupons from Rowleys Red Barn, Little Caesars, and Dunken Donuts. These amazing brands worked with me to make my event amazing and I love what each of them does so please check them out. Thank you brands and bloggers for collaborating and sharing your goodness.

To finish the night off we ended with moonlight yoga. Big breaths and lots of namaste. We chatted and relaxed the night away, some of us with babes in arms. And man, I love my girls night!

Women need women. Thanks for reading about my event. Man, for a small event like this I put in hours of work. But I loved event planning! So thank you Rainbow Light for letting me throw a party for you. You can see more photos at the end of the post. And I am thinking of writing an event planning guide. Anyone interested? Have a great week!

Macrame Pom-Pom Backdrop Tutorial

For this event, I made a fun bohemian macrame backdrop with a pom-pom cluster. To make this same backdrop you can order your macrame backdrop here. You’ll also want to order some yarn in your desired colors and some pom-pom makers

For the large pom-poms you simply tie one piece of yarn around the middle. Then using scissors simply cut around the loops around the ends. So the large ones are one ball of yarn. Afterward, you will need to even out the ends to round them out.

For the small pom-poms start by opening one side of the pom-pom maker. Make sure both adjacent pieces open. Start wrapping around the side until the whole side is covered. Once it is completed, you will need some scissors. I used embroidery scissors for the smaller pom-pom makers. And from here you will cut between the two adjacent pieces.

The last step for the small pom-pom makers is to take a string around 5 inches and tie it around the middle of the pom-pom maker with the string going in between the adjacent pieces on each side. From here you can slowly pull apart each side. And take apart the maker at the middle. And that’s it.
