I love meeting new people and the people in Houston are just so dang friendly that I meet lovely new people every day! :) In the short time I have been here I have met so many gorgeous and talented creative business owners, DIY-ers, food bloggers and artists its so inspiring!
So, what to do when you meet someone you admire and think is fabulous? Think of a way to collaborate with them of course!
Our first event in Houston - the Houston Food Bloggers Collective - Meet the Makers evening on Thursday May 21st.
The evening saw 8 Houston small business owners introduce their brands to Houston foodies and tastemakers. I met so many lovely makers at the event including:
- the amazingly delicious MALK
- my now favourite ice cream in Houston - Honeychild's sweet creams
- the gorgeous girls from B-POP better pop; and
- Briggs True crazily delicious BBQ sauce!
We had 3 of our mini cupcakes at the event for tasting, Donut go breaking my heart, The Duchess of Sprinkles and Confessions of a Choc-a-holic! And I'm so pleased to say we sold out of samples!! :) It was fantastic to get to speak to people and understand what they liked and what their favourite flavors are so we can continue to work on cooking up all sorts of delicious sweets!
