Park Winters Summerland 2019

Oh, the magic that is Summerland!  If you read my Summerland 2018 blog post, you know how much I loved the event!  I was so lucky to be invited back to the blissful Park Winters for an inspiring day of fun and networking.  Unfortunately, we had previously agreed to another important function the same day so I didn't get to stay the whole time but I'm recapping what I got to experience.

Of course, Park Winters was decorated in the most amazing fashion!  They have the most amazing event planners and florists set up gorgeous areas to sit and lounge in.  This year the theme was Summer Solstice and they appropriately held the event on June 21.  There were lovely tones of blush pink everywhere!  It was a dream!

For things to do, there was a market to shop from amazing local vendors.  There was also a beautiful flower crown making station put on by Farmer Hands.  An artist named Greg Galinsky was painting a canvas live.  The stunning Park Winters pool was available for swimming or living your best floatie life as well as lounging in cabanas, listening to the DJ, and grabbing a drink at the bar.

We had a delicious picnic style lunch provided by Nugget Markets.  They had sandwiches, veggie trays, fruit trays, charcuterie boards, and a variety of lovely desserts.  Coffee was offered from a coffee cart called Whole Latte Love Bar.  A variety of different drinks were available at different locations throughout the property.

After lunch, there was a panel of amazing Sacramento and Bay area influencers moderated by my friend Kachet Jackson-Henderson of The Kachet Life and also creator of The Blog Bloc.  We heard from Melissa Johnson of Best Friends for Frosting, Erin Alderson of Naturally Ella and Grove Haus, Tamryn Miller of Wannabe Fashion Blogger, and Will Thompson aka GoodThompson of GoodInc.  The panel spoke about influence, vulnerability, and the importance of being yourself.  It was informative and inspiring to hear them all speak!

In the afternoon, the Bar Baby Co mobile bar opened with their amazing specialty drinks.  Bar Baby is the cutest trailer and they are actually based of out Sacramento so I've seen them before.  They made amazing drinks to match the theme of the event.  I had the Femme Rising and it was delicious!  It also had a cute little empowering message included to read.  Boba Guys came and set up a boba bar which was so delicious!  And the Meltdown Ice Cream truck came to help everyone cool off with their classic ice cream truck treats.

On our way out, we stopped by another area with a different coffee truck called Lady Falcon Coffee Club and got their bottles cascara for energy for the drive to our family reunion.  It was delicious and tasted so much like tart cherries.  VisitYolo, Hotel Winters, and Davis Farm to School had a great Farmer's Market set up giving out delicious produce and there was a station to make your own trail mix.  Another great snack to give us energy for our trip.

Thank you so much to Park Winters and all the amazing sponsors of the Summerland event!  Summerland is one of my very favorite days of the year and I'm so thrilled to be able to attend!  I can't wait to go back to Park Winters!
