This DIY night has been so popular that we’re going to fit in one more before the holidays! The gem/mineral/agate trend is going strong and we want to incorporate it into every element of our décor. Join us Kelly Blexrud (Bash Calligraphy) for an evening of mingling, cocktails and this beautiful DIY.

Grab a rock candy cocktail from the bar and then select your desired agate slices to create a set of chic drink coasters. Gild the edges with shiny gold or silver paint, then decide if you’d like to customize them further with gorgeous hand-lettered writing by Kelly. Finish them off with a glossy coat of sealant and you’ve got an amazing new set to use on your bar cart, as a gift, or for your next party! Need a break from crafting? Nosh on themed treats provided by Layer Cake Shop.

RSVP now to save your spot! Ticket price includes 1 set of 4 coasters and a sweet treat. Drinks and customized writing on coasters available for a la carte purchase.
