last night catherine & i attended a beautiful japan relief event at blu bungalow, just down the street from my apartment. they had a ridiculously great silent auction full of donations from local artists, photographers, jewelry makers, salons, & more.
the decor was perfect, cherry blossoms and tiny red cranes floating above.
everything was themed...and delicious!
our favorites were the red velvet cake pops & special cocktails.
and the sweet jars of love.
and of course, we managed to embarrass ourselves in the photobooth. :)
the proceeds benefit shelterbox, which is one of the coolest disaster relief charities i've ever heard of. each box includes a tent for 10 people, tools, protective gear & nets, a stove, and even a small pack of games & toys for children who have been scared & traumatized from a disaster. amazing!
