"Are you ready to Trade Spaces?" The mother of all design shows, Trading Spaces made it's return debut on April 7th and it was a given we were going to have an exclusive viewing party to watch it. Designerlebrity was the first to share the news that the most controversial and dramatic designerlebrities from the show would be the first to kick off its debut episode! Those designerlebrities were none other than, Hildi Santos and Doug Wilson. So why not get Doug Wilson to join in on the viewing party with us! Well he did and let's just say the event was lit! From celebrity chef, Rudy Straker catering the entire party to Doc Popcorn providing the perfect treat to watch the show. The event was filled with celebrities and designerlebrities all excited to watch Trading Spaces and partake in our Trivia Game hosted by Doug Wilson himself.

We have to give a BIG thanks to our amazing sponsor, Showcase Kitchens for making our private event feel like we were watching the show from home. They created three distinct kitchen island areas each equipped with 60" televisions as our event was RSVP-ed to capacity. They are our kind of people who enjoy a good time with good friends and good food. Not to mention a good design show for entertainment!

Our Instagram LIVE Trivia Game Hosted By Doug Wilson

Before the reunion show special aired, we held an Instagram LIVE during our Trading Spaces Trivia Game night portion of the event. Doug Wilson read out a few trivia game questions based on the show and both our guests and the public had the opportunity to win prizes. We split up our guests into two groups, Neighbors Red & Neighbors Blue (like the show). The winning team got to watch the show with a special treat provided by Doc Popcorn and a few lucky winners on Instagram LIVE won our Trading Spaces gift boxes! We actually gave all our guests Doc Popcorn to enjoy the show with to avoid a brawl.
