From Place To Space: Design Bloggers United Dinner In Amsterdam

6 October 2014 1


One of the most beautiful part of blogging is making friends – creative people from all over the world, bloggers, artists, designers, journalists. The entire year we work and collaborate with them, exchange emails, speak on the phone. Last Friday we decided it’s time to celebrate this ongoing friendships and professional relationships – we invited 30 creative people to our ‘Design Bloggers United Dinner’ in Amsterdam last Friday.

The dinner and the party were the highlights of our Bloggers Tour to Amsterdam. We hosted the dinner in the fantastic ‘Pistache’, a beautiful location in central Amsterdam. We spent the afternoon styling the place for our dinner party and worked with fantastic sponsors to create a magical evening. 

The overall vibe of our dinner party was a relaxed coastal vibe thanks to beautiful French tableware of Pillivuyt. Lots of white, blues and greens set the tone for the evening and the guests arrived and took their seats on stylish ‘Concrete Seats’ by Fatboy. The sun set and we lit the candles, among them our beloved KOTO candle, and the food started coming. Delicious treats prepared in situ by the wonderful ladies of ‘Lady Grey Catering’ were the best ingredients to fuel our laid-back conversations. Laughter, lounge music and clinking glasses in a candle lit space created a wonderful atmosphere that could have lasted all night if it was up to me.

After the dinner it was time to turn up the sound with the help of our cool Libratone speakers, mix up delicious cocktails with V2C Gin and BOS Ice Tea and serve ice cold beer provided by Beer & Co. A relaxed evening came slowly to its end past midnight and we all left happy. Happy to be bloggers and happy to have spent a wonderful gathering with friends.

Thanks again to all our wonderful sponsors named in the text. Without them this magical evening would have not been possible!

    Hallo Igor, I wonder how many of the bloggers attending the dinner have kids. Can one be a suscessful blogger and have kids at the same time? It all looks so cool, but as a Mom it looks to me as a scene from the time I was 30, single and without kids. What are you thoughts on this? Do you have blogger friends who are moms/dads? Do they attend this sort of events?

      Interesting aspect, Maria! In fact, most of the people who are part of our Design Bloggers United group have kids (5 out of 9 are mums) and even many of our guests are parents as well. I think it is something that can be combined but then again this is of course a question of the personal lifestyle and opportunities.
