This month the first EVER Lucky Dip Club Meet Up happened at The Hoxton Hotel and it was set to be a night filled with the kind of fun that this particular Club specialises in; rainbows, popping candy, kittens – you know the drill. Featuring workshops with some of the hottest names on the scene, we knew this event would be irresistible and that we absolutely had to take a look.
The lineup featured pompom making with Caboodle magazine, retro brooch painting with Hollie Harris, unicorn marshmallow decorating (and mostly eating) with B from with Nugget and Mallow, and superbly kitsch kitten decorating with In Twos and Threes. With Kelly of Sun Jellies fame on party bag duty, our lives were complete.
At The Hoxton we discovered a room filled with people who knew one another by their creative work and the Instagram community, rather than in REAL life. It was everything we had hoped it would be; Lucky Dip Club came to life in a world of candy floss, pastel paints and huge happy mantras floating like flags. We overheard people being addressed by their Instagram handles and girls getting to know one another around wonderfully overcrowded tables, amidst a haze of crafty mess. We were kept fed and watered with fruity cocktails and mini glitter morsels by Vicky’s Donuts (of which we ate far too many to be considered lady-like).
After 2 hours of an alternate reality in which adults can squeal over crafts like children and every guest at the party is someone you really want to meet, we departed with a feeling of huge, albeit sugar-induced, satisfaction and clutching our super cool party bags with pride. Sarika did an un-party-bagging over on her site here so take a look at that to see all the spoils from the night!
