Get A Taste of DIY Greatness At HGTV Magazine’s 3rd Annual Blogger Block Party

Thank you to HGTV Magazine for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own.


Now that I have your attention let’s get to business. 

  • You speak fluent craft and sweat glitter.
  • The scent of fresh paint and thought of saw dust makes your spirit shimmy.
  • You have an extensive (borderline horder)  HGTV Magazine collection.
  • Touch and agree if you believe binge watching “Love It or List It” should be considered an olympic sport. 
  • You have a Lifestyle/DIY blog or Etsy Store.
  • You love to have a good time with people who are just as decor obsessed as you.

Raise your Mod Podge covered hand if I am describing you in any way.  What if I told you that the mecca of Home Decor, HGTV Magazine is having a party on August 22nd in NYC? What if I also told you that it is open to the public? What if I also told you that it is FREE!

That’s right ladies and gents HGTV Magazine is hosting their 3rd Annual Blogger Block Party. Last year, I had NO idea this even existed but when my good frugal friend Carrie of Carrie Pink told me about it I RSVPed before we hung up the phone, it is that serious. The event was a day filled with DIY, networking and laughs. One of my favorite moments was meeting design expert Genevieve Gorder. She mentioned that “Detroit’s industrial look” would be a design trend in 2016, we vibed about how awesome AND underrated that city is.11903809_1155097757852350_7846925627227165146_n

Fast forward a year later the party is back! HGTV Magazine’s 3rd Annual Blogger Block Party event engages a coveted influential audience of lifestyle bloggers, designers and style savvy consumers who turn to HGTV Magazine for inspiration in all areas of their lives. The 2015 event drew over 500 attendees, and with dedicated promotion & outreach we anticipate the event to increase in size in 2016. The 2015 event generated over 5 million social impressions.

5 million social impressions…

For 2016, HGTV Magazine is aligned with the NY NOW event, at the Javits Center, and will be the exclusive sponsor of NY NOW’s on-site Social Media Lounge. NY NOW is an extremely awesome tradeshow for gift, home, lifestyle and handmade products for all design needs and price points. Clearly you can see how NY NOW and HGTV Magazine are a match made in heaven. HGTV Magazine has also secured a coveted partnership with Etsy for this event.


Say no more.


2016 dedicated speakers include Emily Henderson, Genevieve Gorder, Young House Love bloggers, Sherry & John Petersik, and Handmade Charlotte’s Rachel Faucett, who will create the social event of the summer season. Bloggers, this is a unique opportunity to engage and be hands on with advertising partners through interactive activations. There will also be various stations to try out new crafts and design techniques that you can bring home!

All of this plus SWAG, who doesn’t love swag?


Take a look at this line up. With numerous panels dedicated to the business of blogging I cannot stress enough how dope this will be for DIY bloggers, design influencers, professional and hobby crafters alike. A relaxed environment to meet and greet some for your favorites, for free.  If you cannot attend make sure you keep an eye out for other events hosted by HGTV Magazine.
