Hey brides/grooms- we’re booking up really early this year. This is great when it comes to the (I n c r e d I b l e) satisfaction of me adding dates to my big fat desk calendar but it’s starting to scare me that some of you might miss out if you haven’t thought about booking our “garden to glass” craft cocktail & mobile bar services for your wedding yet!
Usually bartenders don’t have to be booked quite this early, but since we have a pretty unique vibe going on, we are booking six months to a year in advance. Here’s a list of some of the Saturdays that we do still have available. (Email me today using the contact form on our website for availability for our other bars or other dates and I’ll give you more information right away! I answer every email personally 👌😀 )
Free Saturdays for the camper mobile bar:
June 2, 9, 23
July 14, 28
August 11, 18
September 8,22 .

A toast to gents who finish their Christmas shopping before Christmas Eve. May my own husband be among you, this year. In fact, I think I’ll dedicate my instastory today to a good wish list for last minute shoppers looking to please their Booze loving friends.
Speaking of gifts, thank you for sharing the photos from the beautiful Cantu-Prindle wedding, @martin.stelling Estate weddings are some of our absolute favorites. There is so much extra meaning imbued to a wedding reception that takes place in the home of the couple's family. Julian's face was beaming all night as he wed Liza.
Many thanks as well to @valleyandco for bringing us into the fold for this one.
Christmas is the perfect time to get engaged! Or get a puppy!! Both are good! Go ahead and tag your lover so they know you want one or the other. Just don't be disappointed if your present slobbers rather than shines, k? ...
There's always Valentine's day... Or April 2nd. My husband got me a puppy for Christmas 7 years ago, and proposed 4 months later. Our chocolate lab that fit in my stocking, Leupold Bennelis Kelly, was a giant wilderbeast by then, and I was very ready to plan a wedding!

Meet Tyler, @tylerwein, barback by night, construction manager by day. He likes backpacking, wake boarding and whiskey by a bonfire. He starts and ends a lot of weekends at SeaTac airport, off to do something cool that makes me jealous. He lifts heavy things and wears a vest like a boss. He’s about to become an Uncle. This is supposed to be a bartender introduction but let’s be honest it’s reading more like a singles ad. So....ladies... Photo by Tonie Christine Photography | TCP

Cranberry Pomegranate is our favorite flavor of the season- doesn’t hurt that it’s a perfectly festive garnet red, either.
I’ll be drinking some with gin at a Friendsgiving/foil wrapped gift exchange this Friday. Ours are pretty risqué and pretty wild- it’s a nearly contact sport!
How do you do your gift exchanges? White elephant? Secret Santa? My favorite things? One steal or two?

There she is, in all her glory, the wooden statement bar. Do you need her at your holiday party? Oh, and she has a twin sister, as well.

Last night’s Christmas Parade was very wet chaos with six toddlers in wagons, two babies on mommas, two very underage bartenders waving through the windows, and a gaggle of their hot toddy drinking parents who happen to be my best friends. Parading down Cole street, passing out candy canes, party coupons and Christmas Cheer, it was cold. It rained the entire time. We were the second to last float. It was a lovely, so needed reminder of why I do this. Family business just feels right for my family.
Liquid sunshine, delivered from our garden to your glass. I'm Belinda Kelly, owner of the Happy Camper Cocktail Company. Happy #Friyay ! It’s time for a drink, and for #fridayintroductions ! 1️⃣something I’m proud of this week: I finally got my life together enough to have a podcast playing on my drive to and from Seattle instead of the same top 40 songs over and over for 90 minutes. I listened to Girl Boss with Sophia Amoruso and I loved her use of the phrase “failing forward. “ I feel like that quite frequently. 2️⃣Something I like: purse fruit. It is a quirky trait of mine that I always have a piece of fruit in my purse. This week it was a grapefruit courtesy of @raiseaglasswedding from the Snohomish wedding guild meeting’s tablescapes. Thank you Tori, that was my breakfast! -3️⃣something I loathe and deplore: paying for garbage service ( it makes sense, but still...) .

We have fun behind the bar. It's all part of our #happierhour experience. Speaking of that, nothing is happier to me than Christmas and since today we’ll be serving at the @thegreatjunkhunt ‘s holiday shopping show, I’m pretty excited to get out on the road and in the Christmas mood. Also our #happierhour hats will be for sale tonight, $15/each. Also we are incredibly happy to welcome Brittany and her betrothed to the gold for their 2018 wedding in Easton! Seriously, F-R-I️-Y-A-Y! .

Have y’all had the pleasure of meeting @dandyflowerco yet? We’re doing a class together so if you haven’t yet, come to that and you will. Danielle is one of those people that a very good mutual friend told me for years I would adore but at the time I wasn’t taking applications for new friends. ( she actually said that it makes more sense for the two of you to be friends than it does for each of us to be friends)... I hope that you guys get that, and it doesn’t make me sound like a jerk. I try to be a really, really good friend and so for a while I just didn’t have capacity for more. Sure enough, I opened up and Danielle came along and holy crap if she isn’t the most hilarious person to get drunk with, and the most hilarious person to text with sober. Also, she’s a fantastic florist. And you know it’s near and dear to my heart that she grows most of the flowers for her arrangements herself. So after many years of resistance we’ve agreed to be Pals and she helps me out at happy camper events because her attention to detail is flawless, and I don’t help her out at @dandyflowerco because I am terrible at that, but we teamed up for this workshop to each do at our best work, together. I can’t wait for you guys to meet and learn from her and I can’t wait to spend an afternoon with her teaching y’all about Cocktails and wreath making! Sign up for our Booze and Boughs class on December 2 at the link in my profile and you will not regret it! Cost is $70 and includes both classes, a cocktail and all supplies.
