These are a couple of items that will be part of the LOVE BREWS Event…if you want to see more–you MUST come to our show!
Anyway, I digress.
January ended with a bang…we finished the month with a fabulous wedding (our 5th for the year so far!) and have a lot of things on the horizon. Kio Kreations is going strong and virtually booked up for the year…(see availability calendar for the few days we still have available). We totally appreciate all of our great clients and we are blessed to have such a vocal, happy group who keep getting us more and more referrals! Just a reminder that in addition to wedding flowers, we also do flowers for corporate events, bridal showers, baby showers, rehearsal dinners, and larger anniversary parties. We also do all the fun graphic design stuff for events-we do basically everything except invitations…
Some upcoming events for us include our wedding showcase at LOVE BREWS. This “anti-expo” was my brainchild and will feature 6-7 unique, indie (independent) vendors and live demos. We will also be providing beverages and a candy buffet to all of our guests. We welcome all our our clients and newly-engaged couples to attend. As part of the event, I will be making a TON of fresh floral centerpieces and bouquets. Some of the bouquets I will actually be making in person–so you can actually see me work live! There will also be raffles to win flowers and other fun prizes. All of the vendors in the showcase are wildly talented at what they do and I work with them on a regular basis. XL-Entertainment, Cynthia Sally, Amy Christian, and The Chair Couture were all a part of my own wedding last year! That is how great I think they are–so great I hired them myself!
I encourage everyone to come to this show as its a huge deal for me to be able to showcase my flowers and basically go all out. I know people hate attending things alone, so bring your fiance, friend or mother along. If you are having trouble dragging your fiance to wedding events, just drop him off at the bar upstairs from the event. Emmett’s Brewing Company in Palatine has a large bar area with flatscreen TV’s featuring the best sporting events on that day. Just to drive the point home, here is the sporting event schedule that day:
- Winter Olympics (including Men’s Hockey)
- Mayakoba Golf Classic at Riviera Maya
- WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship
- NASCAR in Fontana (starts at 3pm)
That should show you how much I want you to come! So, please, join us at the LOVE BREWS Event on Sunday, February 21, 2010 from 4:00 to 8:00 pm. Come when you want, stay as long as you want, and be inspired.
If you cannot make it to LOVE BREWS, you can always get inspiration here in my full galleries on flickr!
