You are cordially invited to the Pink and Red party.
Apply that red lipstick (….or pink if you so desire) dust off those shoes you can’t walk in (so they usually come off halfway through the night) and don your bestest pink and red regalia!
For, on February 13th, otherwise known as Galentines day, we shall stay at home but still feel ridiculously fabulous!!!
The dress code
As an at home event there isn’t one. The theme is pink and red, as long as those two colours are involved, you’re all good!
Those don’t have to be the only colours you dress in, I would personally love to see colour combinations I wouldn't have thought of. I love pink, red and green myself.
I have a pinterest board for inspiration here which I will be adding to. I also plan to release some inspirational blog posts in the run up to the day.
How do we party?
So this is an instagram based party. Everyone and anybody on instagram can join.
As I write this, in the UK, we are still in the midst of a lockdown so this is the excuse you need to spend a day anyway you want following those rules. Netflix and knit. A sewing day. M&S Pink gin and a 80’s movie. A long walk with the family and then some baking. The choice is yours. Just, pink and red being involved is the only mandatory requirement.
This is all about living joyfully, in colours that reflect that.
Upload a photo of yourself, add the hashtag #pigeonpinkredparty and join in!
Post a picture of you living your best pink and red life on February the 13th. Simples.
This event really is for fun and I don’t want to get too caught up in prizes…….but that being said PRIZES!
I’m keeping this as informal as possible. As a proud member of the snail seamstress society I emphasize that you do not need to make a new garment for this party. I myself will be wearing something I made about 3 years ago and to last years New Craft House Valentines day party. Me-made is preferable but being involved is even better.
Prizes will be randomly selected. Winners will be drawn and informed on the 15th february.
Prizes will be revealed in the run up to the party. I am still in the process of reaching out to businesses but if anyone wants to contact me to be involved please do!
As your host and as someone who is grateful to be part of this instagram community I hope this is something that lifts spirits.
I would love for as many people as possible who would like this to be involved so spreading the word is appreciated.
Well then, see you there dah-ling,
