Open House Soiree

My Open House Soiree is this Sunday, August 24th, 4:00pm-6:00pm at The Solarium, 321 West Hill Street, Decatur, Georgia 30030.

The purpose of the Soiree is to showcase my work along with the talented group of vendors that I work with. I wanted to do something different than the typical bridal show which can sometimes feel big and impersonal and you really don't get anything from it other than a ton of business cards. This Soiree is meant to be interactive. You will have the chance to not only meet the vendors, but get to see, taste, hear, smell and touch the products and services that they offer.

The Soiree
There will be a catering room with appetizers from Badda Bing Catering and Tucker's Catering, gourmet chocolates from Dreamy Gelato & Chocolates, a sparkling liqueur tasting station from Nuvo, and cupcakes from Sugarplum Visions.

We will have a creative table display room with wedding and event designs from Lemiga Events, florals from Flora Design Studio, stationery from Socially Write, event rentals from Event Rentals Unlimited, linens from Connie Duglin, and party favors from Crossroads Cottage, Chasing Spayde Designs, and Paperluxe Studio.

There will be an entertainment lounge room with sleek event furnishings from CORT, lighting from Active Production & Design, draping from Atlanta Drape & Event Design, and live jazz from EastCoast Entertainment.

We will have other interactive stations like a photobooth from WOW Photobooth, massages from Spa Flow, and natural body product sampling from Sage Naturalceuticals.

For the guys that may get "dragged" along, there will be a Wii lounge with Wii bowling and a DJ from Avalanche Entertainment.

So as you can see this will be a fun afternoon, and you should hopefully walk away with a good sense of what my vendors and I can offer you for your next wedding or special event.
