We recently celebrated Ruche's 7th birthday with our biggest party yet. It was a memorable night filled with delicious food, tasty popsicles, cute clothes, live music and fun activities at our warehouse. We felt so incredibly overwhelmed by all the love and excitement shown to us that night and we couldn't be happier with the turnout. We brought along a few of our wonderfully talented friends from local businesses to help out and we definitely couldn't have pulled off this party without them. In case you weren't able to make it, here's a recap of the night:

Ruchettes were all over our pop up shop. Utterly Engaged even curated a special collection just for the shop!


Found Vintage Rentals absolutely blew our minds with the decor! The party was filled with stunning vintage furniture and amazing chambray installations.



Each floral piece by Inessa Nichols Design was breathtaking. Inessa transformed the event into a captivating piece of art with beautiful arrangements tucked into life-sized water color installations weaved through do-it-yourself vertical wall gardens.

Our friends  oh, hello friend. hosted a Write A Letter to Someone Special station with their adorable stationary. Owner Danni, came prepared with stamps, decorative embellishments and more! It truly was a special station for everyone. 



Everywhere you looked you could see Letter Sparrow's beautifully handwritten calligraphy. Her work was featured on our music stage, Live Beautifully wall, and more! Everyone loved getting personal calligraphy to take home.





Delicious appetizers & drinks were provided by Colette's Catering & Events. They were a big hit! Appetizers and drinks nearly disappeared in the blink of an eye. Colette's team kept everyone happily fed with their tasty creations. Our favorite was the herbed fig crostini with goat cheese mousse. Mmm!


Our cocktail menu would be nothing without Wodka Vodka and Perrier. The special Ruche Mule and Lavender Lady was one of our favorites!



Ruchettes lined up for the Braid Bar! TING Makeup & Hair transformed our Ruchette's silky locks into beautifully braided up-dos and elegant styles. 


Our baby Ruchette Amelie, couldn't resist an adorable up-do! 


 Mom and Pop Shop showed up with delicious all natural popsicles made with only the freshest ingredients. A summer staple is the Cha Cha Cha! Must have. 



Our neighborly friends Share & Do Good, created a special fair trade gift basket with proceeds going back to each community. We love the African Market fair trade basket, Zen Zen oven mitt, Pepper Project serving set and Sustainable Threads kitchen towel. Share & Do Good is a boutique in Downtown Fullerton aiming to curate great designs made by great causes that tell amazing stores of hope from around the world. 


Once word spread that The Burnt Truck arrived, eager and hungry guests lined up for some mouth watering sliders. With such a huge cult following, the cheeseburger sliders and pork belly sliders completely lived up to the hype. 



As the night went on our wall filled up with unforgettable moments captured during our party. Josh & Monica's Studio were ready to capture and print pictures using their handy Insta Party Box. 



Alyssa Bernal kept the night going on stage with her upbeat tunes. Everyone was dancing and singing along to her single, "Wasted Love" and cover of Lordes, "Royals."

Of course, this wouldn't have been a show without Sound & Stage by DJZ Productions.


Ellex Bree graced us with the sweetest melodies. Her harmonious tunes made for a memorable performance.


Our guests swooned over songstress Hayley Solano. The crowd swayed along to her mesmerizing voice and danced along to her cover of Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off."




Last but certainly not least, none of this would have been possible without our wonderful founders, Josh, Mai and Vu. Over the course of only seven years, Ruche has become every modern girl's destination for everything Fresh, Eclectic and Sophisticated.  

Our loyal Ruchettes, vendors and community made this day truly special and we couldn't have done it without you. We are looking forward to even more celebrations with everyone soon!
