We’ve been in the middle of a super fun party campaign with Keep.com, the organized and curated way to shop the internet. All of the amazing products that we’ve discovered on Keep.com came together for an intimate party with several pals and their daughters.
It was the ultimate summer soiree! We had a ball with our gals as we nibbled on organic yummies and crafted under the starry night. All of the details were perfect, thanks to our readers and fellow keepers.
So, without further adieu… throw on your sequin party frocks and get ready for our list of summer party essentials!

If you enjoyed our post on breakfast artist Idafrosk, you’ll love this work by Instagram foodie Hong Yi.
During the month of March, she challenged herself to create an original illustration every day with two constraints: the image had to be made entirely of food, and the backdrop had to be a white plate. She created landscapes, animals, scenes, and homages to pop culture.
Here’s a peek at a few favorites…
