Looking Back on Counterpoint- view from a Cavortress intern

As a Cavortress intern I have been fortunate enough to take part in various fabulous events!  My name is Meghan Bowes and  I am a Senior at the College of Charleston.  One of my favorite experiences thus far has been attending Counterpoint music festival.  Cavortress headed to Atlanta, Georgia September 27-29.  There we were a part of  3 days of house, dub, and electronic madness with artists such as Skrillex, Pretty Lights, Lotus, and so many more! As venders we had full access to the VIP sections putting us front row for the shows and kicking it in the lavish VIP tent.

Cavortress was vending 24/7 rocking the hot pink Cavortress tent filled with crazy fabulous vintage everything!  Despite a minor setback from a whirlwind storm, the trip was a total success. Luckily we were able to keep the inventory dry and were back in action in no time.  We gave the Counterpoint fans the vintage they needed to top off their crazy outfits!
Vintage Cavortress belts! Just some of the great stuff we were selling. 
Check out some of the pictures I managed to capture during the mayhem that was Counterpoint...

A view of the crowd from the front row during pretty lights! Check out all those totems

Interesting Eats

This is a perfect way to mix up your next get together with friends or family!  I am always looking for new and different appetizers to entertain with instead of the same old cheese and crackers.  Why not have food that is not only delicious, but also a conversation piece? This is one of my favorites because it is unique and delectable! Not to mention it looks beautiful! 

Strawberries, walnuts, dried apricots, multigrain bread with Ajvar hot pepper spread, and New York cheddar (white and yellow).

Breseaola, wasabi peas, and dark chocolate dusted almonds.
