If you need a break from shopping (not that anyone needs a break from Kendra Scott), you can dance the night away with music courtesy of Texas Professional DJs, voted the #1 Best DJ by The Knot. I mean, what kind of Austin party would it be without music?!
As you’re gettin’ your groove on, you’ll be able sip cocktails poured by the “Betty’s” from Austin’s own, Deep Eddy vodka. Plus, EVERY guest will go home with Deep Eddy Vodka minis in their swag bag and one lucky guest will win a gift basket complete with all 4 Deep Eddy vodka flavors including sweet tea vodka, raspberry, ruby red grapefruit, and Deep Eddy original.
White Hat Rum will also be present at this event offering tastings of their delicious Texas rum. Proudly bound by this standard, White Hat Premium Texas Rum is handcrafted in small batches just outside of Austin in Manor, Texas. Made with South Texas molasses from plantations that’ve seen our state through all six flags. They add natural water originating from springs residing here long before Texas was ever Texas. They triple distill in an effort to produce the cleanest rum possible. And, once the spirit is allowed to rest in American oak barrels for just the right amount of time, it can be called White Hat Rum. A lucky guest of the Block Party will go home with a CASE of White Hat Rum!
As if shopping and sipping cocktails wasn’t enough, Photogenica Images, Austin’s premier photo booth rental company, is providing their open-air, digital photo booth complete with high quality, fun props for moms to dress up, get silly, and capture the fun of the evening with friends! They offer an open-air design, allowing more participants in the photo and more interaction between guests. Guests of the Block Party can easily choose between B&W or Color Photos and get instant feedback on their touch screen prior to the picture being taken.

SONA Organics came about due to our inability to find effective yet safe skin care for us and, more importantly, our children. Anything we tried either was ineffective or had potentially toxic chemicals like sodium lauryl sulfate and parabens. Over the past decade, we have been refining age-old recipes from our grandmothers to make them appropriate for modern use. SONA Organics products are the result of this decade long experimentation. SONA’s philosophy is that what we put on our body is just as important as what we put in it. The typical SONA ingredient is organic and is used in daily cooking. We use SONA Organic products on our kids and ourselves daily – without worry. You can use SONA Organics products with the same confidence because they are simple, organic and natural!

Mama’s Got a Brand New Job!
Janis Powers, author of the bestseller, Mama’s Got a Brand New Job, and writer for the Huffington Post, will be at the event offering the signature cocktails featured in her book, smart merchandise, and signing copies of her famed novel.

Need aesthetic inspiration?
Posh Interiors has designed a chic space specifically for this event to showcase their unique style. “When we think design, we also think functionality, providing a flex space for what the client or family may need the space to be used for in the future, and in resale. We love interior design and renovating spaces because it is such a wonderful way to bring a person’s space alive. Color, texture and understanding your style preference or even mixing styles such as French country, mid-century, modern, eclectic, Tuscan and so on is a reflection of our client’s personality, lifestyle and family so that your home is where you truly want to be”.
