WE DID IT!! The Jungalow Pop Up is officially launched! It’s only been a few weeks but we’re already feeling the love and community vibe. We got a DM from someone who was at Target talking about how much they loved Jungalow, when someone else in the aisle told them we now had a pop-up store! And they came to the pop up the same day!! It’s exactly the off-screen connection we wanted when we decided to launch the pop-up. Connection, community and lots of creativity – these are all the intentions we had at heart when we built the pop-up. It was a dream come true to share it with our friends and family the day before the grand opening. We worked hard for a few weeks and the launch party was the first time we were able to relax, put on our dancing shoes and celebrate this milestone!!
And boy, did we celebrate!!! The wine was flowing, the DJ was playing all our favorite bops (thanks Zach!!) and the atmosphere was good!
We started the day with a special taster for a few close friends (thank you Kelly & Jeff Mindell and Joy for getting out!). Natalie from Team Jungalow did an incredible job organizing not only the morning event but also the evening launch party. Double the parties, double the fun (and lots of details to figure out – haha)!!
We felt chic!!! Petrossian provided us with delicious caviar and we all died when we saw the serving spoons – how beautiful are they?!?!
I’ve also discovered some amazing new brands that are doing such cool things! Reuse provided all the compostable cups for our launch party and we are clearly aligned on all the plantastic ways to care for Mama Earth! Plants on plastic all day, every day!
We shared stories over a few glasses of wine (thank you Avaline!!!) and caught up after a few years of… well, the Covid bubble. It was so wonderful to hug friends, dance together, and have that IRL connection that we were all missing.
My whole family, including Ida, her uncle Zach (who was a DJ), my husband, Jason, my parents, my siblings, aunts, uncles and cousins, also came to celebrate! It was so special to share this day with them as they saw the pop up go from an idea to a reality.
I am also very proud of the Jungalow family! Jasmine (below in the pink dress – how cute is she?!), Natalie, Tara, Piper, Aimee, Andrew and Sara all worked hard for weeks before the launch to get us across the finish line.
Piper and I are spicy on the dance floor!!
We even brought in some OG Jungalistas!! Hi Kiki, Lindsay and Alec! Seeing all of our friends and family who have been part of the Jungalow dream over the years was the NEXT LEVEL! It was so good to connect, catch up, and have some snacks and sips together! A big congratulations to Health – it wouldn’t be a party in Los Angeles without kombucha baby!! 😉
Maybe do a little booty dance if you feel called! Whatever makes you feel totally YOU, that’s the energy we want you to bring to this creative space. We have so much gratitude to our community, our audience, our customers, our fellow creatives and we are so happy to now have a space to bring all this goodness together IRL!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who came, showed up, radiated love, positivity and high vibration energy into the space. I’m still feeling it through the pop-up and working on many more fun celebrations, events, workshops and gatherings at the pop-up this summer.
