January 29th ColoradoKpopper, MissingHaechan, and PaintedBlossoms celebrated the 5 Aquarius boys of NCT! Lucas, Johnny, Doyoung, Jisung, and Jaehyun! We celebrated at the wonderful Snowl once again. With Cupsleeves, special drinks, a photo opportunity, raffle and more! Not only were we celebrating these five boys, but we were also celebrating my birthday and I couldn't have asked for a better birthday party!
Like all these cupsleeve events we had, well, cupsleeves! This time the amazing Katy, aka Missing Haechan, designed our sleeves and they turned out gorgeous. A perfect fit for our universe/Aquarius vibe we were going for. Along with the cupsleeves, our freebee this time was a special deco polaroid - each boy having a specially done design that was had decorated by Katy, Morgan, and I! It was truly fun to find a design that matched each boy and specially decorating each one by hand to make it just that bit more special.
Another fun feature we had at the event was our special event drinks provided by the amazing staff at Snowl! The first one was our Moonwalk Taro Tea - which was a Oreo Taro Tea and it was absolutely delicious. The second one was a bit different but also amazing- especially if you love Lemonade and sweetness. We had the Tastes Like Lemonade, which was a blue Lemonade with Nerds!! Both were absolute sugar bombs but also extremally tasty. The Moonwalk Taro Tea had to be my favorite.
Like with all my events we also made sure to have a special photo area to take all your fun event photos at! This time, to go along with the galaxy theme, we had a galaxy backdrop and some stars to complement that. However, that's not all! We also had our 5 celebrated boys ready and present to take all your desired photos! It was a blast to see everyone's poses with them
For this events charity, we were collecting donations for the Women's Foundation of Colorado to help support women in STEM! Together we were able to raise $210 to donate to this wonderful organization. We collected donations for this in two different ways. The first was with our Gacha! We had capsules with special made Aquarius keychains and constellation stickers designed by @PaintedBlossoms - and in some cases the capsules also contained raffle tickets for our raffle.
You could also purchase raffle tickets and all the proceeds also went to the donation!
Speaking of raffle- we had an amazing raffle prize. Straight from Korea (Thanks to the fantastic Win D.) of many NCT centric items: NCIT Mug, Jisung Hot Sauce Bottle, Lucase Photocard Book, WayV "Take Over the Moon" Black Edition, NCT Dream "We Go Up," and NCT127 "Superhuman!"
A big congratulations to Sophie for winning this great basket!
As always I want to give a big thank you to SNOWL for hosting us and providing tasty drinks! I also want to give a big shout out to my cohosts @MissingHaechan and @PaintedBlossoms for making the event possible with me! I love hosting these events and hosting them with you guys always makes them better. Also a huge thank you to Morgan and Win for gathering supplies and volunteering their time to also make this event happen!
Make sure to check out the calendar to see all upcoming events! See you then!
On July 31st ColoradoKpopper and KonnectPop hosted Red Lee Day! A Mark Lee and Red Velvet celebration! Just a day apart we decided to celebrated the 6 talented people together on their big days! Mark's 22nd birthday and Red Velvets 7 year anniversary.
We had the pleasure of hosting Red Lee Day at Snowl! A wonderful Boba shop in Aurora. Following our sweet and spicy theme we decorated the space with fruits and peppers, the cafe popping with color. Our photobooth section was complete with a watermelon backdrop, an appearance by SuperM mark Lee, and of course - a inflatable siracha bottle!
For this event we were raising money for the Superhero Heart Run - an organization for Congenital Heart Disease. Together we were able to raise $200 for this amazing charity. As incentive for donation we had 2 raffle prizes, a Red Velvet pack of an album, stickers, and a Red Velvet SM Bear pin won by Emily N. and a Mark Lee pack of an album and 2 SM Bear pins (NCT and SuperM) won by Joycelin G!
Lastly, I would love to give a huge shout out to Katy! One of my best friends for bringing her Red Velvet and Mark Lee collection to display for everyone to see. She had some great items from magazines to pcs to show off and allow us all to look through. I always love seeing other peoples collections and I hope you all enjoyed seeing hers!
Next, on August 7th, we were back at the fantastic Ju's Coffee for BlackPink's 5th Anniversary! I had partnered with KSA - UCCS' Korean Student Org. to bring you all this event and I loved it. We really took the blackpink into our theme - decorating the cafe with beautiful art posters, balloons, streamers, and pearls!
For this event we once again were raising money for the Golden Lotus Foundation - and thanks to everyone generous hearts we raised $100 to donate! The raffle prize for this event was an offical Blackpink Lightstick Vr. 2, lovesick girls art print, and Blackpink member buttons - a big congratulations to Jason K. for winning this raffle!
Thank you so much to anyone who attended either (or both!) of these events! I always love seeing and meeting you all and I can't wait to see you again! Make sure to check out the calendar to view all upcoming events!
I'm very late at posting this but better late then never! We have a lot to cover in this post - 3 events! - so buckle up and settle in!
BTS Day was June 12th at Riize Coffee in Littleton and we had an AMAZING turn out! This was my second festa celebration for BTS - the first being the 7 year last year - and I'm so glad we were able to have a proper celebration this year!
Our BTS Festa event was the biggest cupsleeve I have held to date with special drinks, vendors, 2 giveaways, and several special photo opportunities!
The wonderful staff at Riize Coffee Co. created four special drinks for our event: The BORAHAE Soda (My personal favorite) a blackberry and vanilla sparkling water, the Dark and Wild Americano for espresso and hazelnut lovers, the Dynamite Cookie for those who enjoy a sweeter coffee and the taste of an oatmeal cookie, and lastly the Persona Lemonade a tart peach lemonade.
Aside from the special drinks we also had four wonderful vendors selling special BTS (and general Kpop) goodies! There were totes, journals, keychains, pins, soaps, and jewelry!
Along with all of that we had several fun photo spots and decorations scattered about. It's always one of my favorite things to watch everyone take photos with the props and just have a general good time - if you would like to see some of these photos check out the past event gallery under calendar.
Like with most of my events we were also collecting donations to raise funds for The Golden Lotus Foundation once again - a local non profit in Colorado Springs working on the education and celebration of Asian heritage - and we were able to raise $700 to donate to this wonderful charity!
The next event I would like to highlight in this blog post will be KBand Day held June 26th at Riize Coffee Co! I was happy to partner with KonnectPop once again to bring this exciting event. I am admittedly not that well versed in many Kbands, however, we had an amazing time with a variety of goodies such as postcards, PCs, special guitar picks and more all representing a wide variety of groups!
There was also a photobooth with inflatable instruments and we played two extremely fun games - 1: Guess that instrument by the sound and 2: Name songs based on popular words (proud to say my team one this one!)
Lastly we also paired this event with a donation to charity - although the charity is TBD we are happy to announce we have raised $301! I will announce which charity we donate to once we have decided!
The last event I would like to highlight in this post was my most recent event for Taeyong of NCT. This event was hosted July 3rd at Ju's Coffee and I'm so happy to be back at the little cafe. Aside from missing Ju herself I missed the delicious boba she served.
Taeyong day was a perfect introduction back to the cafe and inspired by TY himself we decorated the space with a red roses theme.
Not only were there roses on the cupsleeve's and scattered around the entire cafe but each guest got their own rose with a special Taeyong Day PC! This was definitely one of my most favorite themes I ever worked with with just how pretty everything turned out. Big shout out to Katy for providing the beautiful official prints for display and a big thank you to Debrah for providing the giveaway items for our raffle!
I want to say a big thank you to everyone who attended any of these events and continues to attend and support me. If it wasn't for you guys I wouldn't be able to continue to do something I absolutly love doing.
I look forward to seeing you at my next events! Make sure to check out the calendar tab to see everything that's coming up!
