We hope you’ve all had a chance to try Velata, our fabulous fun fondue, since its launch on May 1. If not, you should get on that (seriously, you’re missing out)!
If you have dipped into our velvety, creamy, so perfect-it’s-scary chocolate, then you probably went to or hosted a Velata party. You probably had a few delicious dippables, listened to a little mood music, enjoyed Velata’s amazing Premium Belgian Chocolate, had some good laughs with friends and overall had a pretty good time, right?
Well imagine if you had an unlimited budget to create your ultimate dream Velata party. Just think about the possibilities — what dippables would you serve? Where would you have it? What would you wear? Who would you invite?
We’re giving you the opportunity to actually show us by creating your own Pinterest board dedicated to your dream Velata party! Our Pin Your Party contest is asking you to find photos on Pinterest that you find beautiful, exciting and fun, and use them to create a virtual Velata party. Defy all sense of reality (of course Brad Pitt is coming to your Velata party), all sense of money (it’s no good here), and dip into your creativity (pun absolutely intended).
Check out some of the Pin Your Party boards a group of gifted gals around our office put together to offer as an example to help get you started:
Danae Castellaw (me!), Social Media Marketing
Kim Mora, Social Media Marketing
Kylee Nield, Forum Administrator
Stephanie Finch, Public Relations
Justeen Long, Employee Communications
Whether it’s Girl’s Night In, The Roaring 20’s, Casino Night or a Tropical Tango, decide what kind of party you want to host and then get pinning! The more creativity, the more pins and the more enthusiasm the better.
One winner will receive a $200 gift card to Pottery Barn to purchase gorgeous partyware, as well as a $75 Velata gift certificate. So the next Velata party you host will be real and almost as good. (Will Brad Pitt make it? Probably not, but it will still be awesome)!
See below for details on how to enter, contest rules, and FAQ.
Good luck and happy pinning!
