Had a fabulous time with Veronica Millstid Levine of Bailey Conner Catering filming at Party Girl segment for Wild About Houston. Her new program for Team Building will definitely be sought after by companies looking for fresh ideas. The company also has ideas for cooking parties and fun cocktail events.
Had a wonderful time with Christine and Patti at La Torreta Del Lago. The property has undergone an extension renovation and is an amazing location to host a Destination Wedding or Conference. Located about an hour outside of Houston proper, it sits on Lake Conroe. I have to say i was taken back by the beauty of the property, the amenities and the service. i will be working with them in July with the Deer Breeder Co-op conference. They have a focus on weddings and social events and in 2011 will even be adding a locale for have a wedding close to the waters edge with the sun set as a perfect backrdop. http://www.latorrettalakeresort.com/
I love finding new places to host events. Your Cup of Tea in Houston is a delightful venue for brunches like Bridal Showers, Wedding Day or Mother's Day. Also fabulous for authentic afternoon tea. With a wonderful selection of tea, finger sandwhiches and china, it makes for a great experience. www.urcupoftea.com
This will be the first of many posts about The Special Event in New Orleans. While the Wedding Luncheon itself was lackluster, the bright spot was the table top design by Janet Flowers with help from David Rosenzweig of CardBoard Design. The new and innovation product was so versatile, unique and all the while being incredibly green. The company even had a tree made out of cardboard at the white house, which 75,000 people were able to attach their wishes to. Definitely am looking for many opportunities to use this product.
Attended the grand opening of Ricks Bridal Couture. Fabulous new bridal salon with designs by Shawn Kingsley - up and coming designer. He is going places and I can't wait to send brides there. www.onedueykingsley.com
Got a great opportunity to work with Eileen with Instore Magazine to give some ideas fun party ideas for Jewelry stores. Some included draping models with nothing but fantastic jewelry and body paint for a great effect and using jewelry in centerpieces and napkin holders
