Last Sunday night we gathered together with 200 of our family, friends, crew, and blog readers to celebrate the premiere episode of our new show Knock It Off.

To say the party was awesome would be the understatement of the year! We know many of you (our amazing readers) live far away, so we wanted to share our night with you!
A huge thanks
to Nicole from Expressions by Nicole Marie
for doing all the photography for the night. She’s a Philadelphia area photographer. Check out her website to see more of her work.
The dessert table was by far our favorite thing ever! Linda (more explanation on her later) put this together and it reflected us perfectly!
Paint cans, paint sticks, adorable chalkboards, and mini tools captured our DIY theme perfectly.
Yes, Linda made all of the desserts including the tool cookies. They were a huge hit!
Who knew paint sticks could be so perfect as food labels? She dipped the end in paint and then stamped on them. This would also be a great idea for an art themed birthday party!
The tools were plastic and spray painted silver to accessorize the table.
Every little detail was thought of- look at the mini Jess and Monica!!
Jenny from Craft that Party
made the adorable peg dolls with Knock It Off on them. They made adorable cake toppers! Jenny does all kinds of custom peg dolls that are crazy cute!
Check out the centerpieces… quart-sized paint cans filled with custom Knock It Off lollypops from Vintage Confections
. The tool keychains were our little party favors- I think my kids thought the tools were the coolest thing ever!
Jess and I were at the main entrance to greet all of our guests (which was super fun to meet so many readers!!), then everyone got appetizers and dessert and finally it was time to watch the premiere.
And what’s a premiere without popcorn?
Linda used some paint swatches (with permission of course) to make a garland for the popcorn table.
And now, who is this Linda woman you ask?? She is a blog reader we met and got to know by doing a Knock It Off episode at her home- check her out in an upcoming kitchen episode!
Linda is SO talented and we can’t thank her enough for all her hard work. She thought of every detail and pulled everything off with perfect planning!
If you have an event coming up and need amazing desserts or even help planning contact Linda!
Check back on Monday when we’re going to post on the decor of the party and where you can find all the fun items Linda used!
We also had a mini-Red Carpet leading to a Knock It Off Photo booth. The KIO logo decals came from Ten23 Designs
– they do stock and custom design vinyl.We’re so happy that we have so many fun pics of our guests! Check out this weekend’s episode to see this fun couple’s bedroom transformation!
This couple were the stars of the premiere episode- they loved their dining room->playroom transformation! Plus, they’re adorable!
Cute couple alert! Jess and Kev!
Me and my boys… (and no my hair isn’t red, just looks like it in this light)
Baby brothers are always good for an extremely weird picture!
We’re so thankful for fun, strong, supportive women in our lives!
We’ll be sharing more about all the fun giveaways in another post.
And of course, we wouldn’t want to be on this crazy journey with anyone else. Doing what we love and getting to do it together is the coolest thing ever!
We hope you’re enjoying the show- if you’ve gotten a chance to check it out, we’d love to know what you think! Feel free to email us, leave a comment, or post on Facebook!
