Day parties and social media are the perfect way to make new memories with friends during the summer. What’s better than catching up with friends and creating a story of your day using Snapchat on your phone? On Saturday July 16, Events of Bliss (EOB) threw Summer Bliss “The Hashtag Day Party” at Monroe Patio & Restaurant, which was hosted by KOLS, a popular T-shirt fashion line out of Boston. This social media-themed day party encouraged guests to take pictures and post them on various social media platforms using #SummerBliss, #EventsOfBliss, #HashtagParty and #EOB.

EOB is an event-planning company based in Boston specializing in a modern, streamlined approach. They ensure that each moment is thoughtfully produced — from the save the date to the last guest departing. For those of you who enjoy social media, this was definitely the place to be. Everyone had their phones out during the event to snap, tweet and Instagram their experience while creating hype around the new company. I think I even saw a few people catch Pokémon using the Pokémon Go app on their phone.
