2nd Anniversary Pineapples & Palms Swap Party Recap:
As I mentioned a few weeks ago in the Anniversary Brunch Recap I shared from last year, this May marks not only my big 3-0… but also the second anniversary of Peachfully Chic’s launch.
It’s been an incredible experience the last two years and since I’m officially a master of my own schedule doing the entrepreneurial thing (more on that later), I couldn’t be more excited about the where Peachfully Chic has brought me and the direction it’s heading in!
So without further ado, I wanted to share the details from my blogiversary party with our Pineapples & Palms Swap Party this year!
With all my recent travels to Coachella and to Miami, I was so inspired by all the Pineapples and Palms I’ve been surrounded by that it seemed like a natural fit for the party theme.
After having a little watercolor inspiration painting session, where I decided some little framed pics for the party, I knew I had to stop by Swoozies for some of their Palm Beach Chic party essentials. I also picked up this adorable Biscay Green Sunnylife Beach Sounds Radio that provided some great music for the party.
We nibbled on all sorts of goodies from delicious donuts c/o Bon Glaze, some delectable honey from Savannah Bee Co, to refreshing bubbly and other snacks before digging into the “free” shopping!
How much fun is this Bon Glaze Donut and Lula Flora Pinata!?!

You can read all the details on how to host your own Swap Party here, but basically, everyone brings gently used goods and after drawing numbers, we take turns shopping each other’s items, and then everything that is leftover is donated. In our case, we donated to a local women’s shelter. Not only did everyone go home with great items, we also were able to donate some really great items to deserving organizations that can repurpose them for those in need!
Of course my ladies and fellow co-founders of Girl Talk Series came out to support! (L-R: Eating with Erica, ME!, Kale Me Kelly)
A fun jumpsuit I found…
Katherine from Verbal Gold Blog nabbed a great maxi and necklace!
Maria from Cute Mom Blog found an adorable drawstring dress…
And I also grabbed a great little cobalt strappy dress that was too adorable to pass up! The “Happy Hour + Darlin'” dress I’m sporting at the party was c/o Cypress & 5th.

So adorable! I want that radio from Swoozies now.
Chan – It was seriously my favorite decoration and it had fantastic sound! I can’t wait to take it to the beach this summer!!! 🙂
So much cute stuff in this post I can’t even narrow it down! The party looks amazing, and that cobalt dress is to die for. Love it!
Oh thank you so much!! The dress was a last minute find at the end of the party but I’m so excited to have grabbed it! xo
Oh my gosh, not only do I love the idea behind this swap party, but the theme and decor is so adorable! Happy birthday and congrats on two years!
Thanks Justine! It was a fabulous party… you can’t really beat adorable pineapples, palms, and a little “free” shopping!
This is such a fun idea! I’ve been needing an excuse to clean out the closet, and nab some of this cute pineapple decor that’s been floating around lately.
Oh definitely Piper! I’ll be posting the Swap Party instructions that I sent out ahead of time next week on the blog – so don’t forget to come back and check those out… it helps to explain to everyone what exactly a Swap Party entails! 🙂
Love the decorations and the clothes!

Thanks Greta!!! xo
What an adorable party! I love all of the pineapple decor. Too cute!
It was such a fun day – I highly recommend trying it yourself!!!
I love the palm tree thing too having just been in Palm Springs. And the idea a swap party is something i have entertained doing, but I don’t have the clothing racks, which makes it seem so much better!
Thanks Scarlett! I actually use these racks in my closet since I took out the traditional clothing racks when we moved in, but I picked them up at Ikea for only $12! Here’s the link to the one I have: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/50231630/ …but they have one without wheels for only $9 too!
Oh my goodness! So pretty and put together so well! I love it. I am obsessed with PINEAPPLES!
