Recap: Southern Blog Society Conference

As some of you might of seen via instagram, last weekend I was in Atlanta for the Southern Blog Society’s annual conference, otherwise known as #SBScon. It was so much fun to see and meet new and old blogger friends from across the Southeast!

Before we even started the conference, Kristin (Living in Color Print), Emily (Life with Emily), Ashlyn (Let It Be Beautiful), Ashley (Turquoise & Teale) and I were treated to blowouts and bubbles (and coffee for me!) by the lovely staff at Drybar Atlanta. It was the most fitting way to kick off a weekend full of instagrams, ###’s and of course, outfit shots. (It was also here that I began to realize what a “token brunette” I would be for the weekend surrounded by my beautiful blonde mafia blogger friends!)

The conference was hosted at the W Hotel in Buckhead and kicked off with an opening cocktail party hosted by Ahalogy at Whiskey Blue complete with macarons and sparkling (literally) champs.

Bright-eyed and full of arm parties, we enjoyed a coffee talk style conference that began early on Saturday morning with a variety of speakers and sponsors.


After the coffee talk, we headed to South City Kitchen Midtown‘s charming upstairs light-filled room for what I would most certainly call an “H&T-approved” luncheon hosted by ASOS.

Our seating arrangements were assigned by a particular flower that was noted on framed stationery. For example, I was at the “hydrangea” table so I knew where to find my seat at the table full of hydrangeas. In lieu of traditional place cards, we had social media nameplate necklaces from TAudrey. So adorable!

 I mean how gorgeous is that tablescape?

On Sunday, the weekend concluded with a pool wrap up party hosted by Southern Living Magazine at the W’s rooftop pool – complete with DJ jams and berry-filled bubbly’s. (my kind of afternoon!).

If you’re a blogger in the South, you must apply & join SBS for a chance to attend next year! The connections and resources are one of a kind and it was nice to be around so many other bloggers all weekend who did not mind pausing to take (or stage) an instagram photo or two (or 100).

It was also so nice to attend an event as a guest rather than to be doing the hosting and planning! Special thank you to Cathy and Jessica (below!) for putting together such a wonderful  and successful weekend. Truly no detail was overlooked!
