Last week we participated in an Instameet & Greet with West Elm Roseville. It really inspired us, and we’re looking forward to doing more social media pop-up seminars in the future.

This event involved cool partners, like-minded folks, and sharing our tactical knowledge to help others- it was just plain awesome!

West Elm is an incredible company that embraces social media and encourages all their stores to reach out to their local communities and host events ranging from terrarium building to table-scape design. This month Honey Agency was invited to host a workshop at their Roseville location and we spoke about one of our biggest loves, Instagram.

We kicked off the night talking about the benefits of Instagram, and professional tips and tricks to leverage your personal brand. The three takeaways we wanted attendees to hone in on regarding their brand/personal brand’s presence on social media were:

1. Focus

2. Partner & Follow

3. Value



After our little chat we sent everyone off to put some of the tips to use and check out West Elm’s covetable summer merchandise. We turned it into a fun contest and selected two winners with prizes including- a wine package from our friends at Naggiar Vineyards and a $50 gift card to the Fountains at Roseville.

Congrats to The Girl Kyle & Jamila for winning!


To really make it a party we invited some our favorite local businesses who we love to ‘gram with.

Zocalo Roseville brought the tastiest and photo-worthy flautas that blew us all away, while Silk Road Soda brought their exuberant team and ice cold Mediterranean Refreshers. If you haven’t had a taste yet, you can find them locally at Whole Foods and Raley’s, and stay tuned for some exciting work we’re doing with them!


We also had endless fun with Giggle & Riot Fun Booths, who shared their awesome new Instagram photo booth. Be sure to hire them if you have an upcoming party or wedding, they’re the absolute best.


The photo booth they brought involved creating a custom hashtag, where guests were able to take photos on their phone’s and print the photos using the hashtag. Super cool right!?!




We had a great turn out, with some of our favorite local bloggers making an appearance. Here we have Vanessa from Babe-Sicle, Haley from Colour Me Classic, Kachet from The Lipstick Giraffe, and Kyle from The Girl Kyle.


A huge thank you to Caroline from Milou and Olin for taking these beautiful photos from the night. Head over to her website to see more of her amazing work!


Most of all, THANK YOU to West Elm Roseville for inviting us to be a part of this evening.  Do yourself a favor and follow them here and here to keep up with future events and promotions. They are a great group of people who will answer all your interior design questions in store but also provide complimentary design services in your own home.

Make sure we have your email or follow us on Instagram here, to be sure you hear about our next pop-up seminar! Feel free to  drop us a line about a topic you’d like to hear us gab about.

Follow our friends on Instagram, they won’t disappoint!
