Good parties make me happy. That’s for sure! And Makeshift Society’s Salon: The Art of Fancy was a nice treat to my Wednesday evening. Lots of entertainment and lots of socializing.

The last time I was at The Bold Italic was when I was interning for Bri & Angela at blogshop back in April. Had a great time being there again! It’s really a great space and I love how it can accommodate a social party, workshop, etc. 

Since The Art of Fancy was a social hour for many San Franciscans to learn how to put fancy tricks up their sleeve, Skill Exchange partnered with MSS for this event. From learning how to tie a bow tie to crafting elegant floral arrangements, party-goers definitely ended the night with lots of things to add to their “skills” list.

Speaking of skills, check out this amazing idea! Photojojo made an awesome Makeshift Skills Board for guests to to share their talents! I definitely want to learn how to garden… hah!

I mentioned last week that I’m now interning for Makeshift, so during the party I worked the membership table where I got to pass out these cute little buttons and postcards. Don’t you just love the little picture riddles? BE AMAZING!

It was a great evening of fun, laughter and enjoyment! And look at how much the Makeshift Skills Board got filled! Lots of talent in San Francisco, it’s too amazing and too inspiring.
