First thing is first: DIY parties are seriously the new book clubs.

At Brit + Co, we spend our days dreaming of ways to give you all the tools you need to create beautiful things. Brit Kits were our first step, and if you are a loyal Brit Kits subscriber, we want to thank you. If you aren’t a Brit Kits subscriber…well, you’re missing out! You can sign up here to get your monthly creative juices flowing.

Throughout the last few months of hearing from you guys, we’ve repeatedly received one message loud and clear: the only thing better than DIY is DIY’ing together. It’s such a fun way to hang out with friends while using up some creative energy. (Especially if wine is involved.) That’s why we started a new program called the Brit Co-Op.

The Brit Co-Op is a a group of handpicked hostesses selected by Brit + Co. These gals (and sadly, no gents yet!) are some of the coolest and raddest Brit + Co. fans who are willing to host 10 of their friends for a free (yes, free!) DIY party each month. This past month, we sent a total of 11 Brit Kits to each Co-Op member’s door: one for them and one for each of their lucky invitees. We also included a huge box of party supplies and yummy snacks to make SURE they were the hostess with the mostest.

Our Co-Op members threw their first parties in April, and as you can see, they were a smashing success! We teamed up with Kettle Chips for the grub and Party City for the complementary party decor. And of course, we included our Chalkboard Kits for everyone to DIY together.

Sound pretty rad? Want to host your own DIY parties with your girlfriends?

To join the Brit Co-Op, just fill out this application. If you’re selected, we’ll reach out to you with next steps. We’re currently taking applications for our June parties. If you aren’t selected for June, have no fear, we’ll be adding new Co-Op members to the program each month!

Can you believe how great these photos are?! We love them. Thanks again to all of our Co-Op members who hosted an April party and hope to see the rest of you throwing your own par-DIYs very soon!
