Sugary Sunday

October 14, 2007
On Sunday October 14 the entire CCP gang attended the quarterly Association of Bridal Consultants luncheon at the Conrad Indianapolis hotel. Tonya had the opportunity of planning the event.
She decided that this luncheon she would do progressive tablescapes. We had 4 tables the first was what we call the Bronze Table. This would be what the Conrad would offer standard to their clients. The next table was Silver. This table was a step up from the Bronze. We added chair covers and a simple centerpiece. The next table was of course Gold. This table had a nicer linen and napkins, chiavari chairs, plate chargers and a larger centerpiece than the Silver table. The last table was the Platinum table. At this table we added an overlay to the linen, napkin tassels, a sash to the chiavari chairs, rented gold-rimmed china and stemware and a tall centerpiece.
Gloria Boyden, the state president made a presentation on proper invitation etiquette. Kay Krober, Cindy Basker and Clare Welage all spoke about cute favor ideas. My personal favorite was the guitar picks and writing on “Matt picked Darcie”on the pick. How Cute!!!
Monica Whitehead, the catering manager at the Conrad put together a wonderful menu for us and gave everyone a tour of the hotel.
Everyone had a lovely afternoon and is looking forward to the January meeting.

Beauty Bash

OUR FIRST FUNDRAISER OF THE YEAR! We have worked soooooo many long and painful hours with Blades Hair Salon to put on the 1st annual Beauty Bash at the Ritz Charles. It was a true success. I cashed in every favor I have ever accumulated with my vendors and friends/family to help put this shin dig together! We raised over $10,000 for the Jullian Center. We had over 250 in attendance at our event. I can’t tell you how rewarding it was to see the women and know that we are doing this together to support one another. A huge shout out to my staff and my dear friend Gretchen Schott for their love and support for this event. I promise we will be posting the pictures later. You have to mark your calendars for next year.

On the Radio Again

Okay, I love Smiley! With our Beauty Bash event we were on the radio Tuesday morning the 2nd of October. It was so neat to be able to be in the studio and promote our biggest fundraising event of the year. Smiley is cute too! Here is the picture I captured right after we were LIVE.

Emily and Darin

Forgive my camera pictures, it's time to clean the lens. The wedding so perfect I had to post my fuzzy pictures. No worries the professional pictures will be posted later. What a cute couple! They were so sweet and so thankful for everything we did for them on their wedding day. We started off the gorgeous day at Emily's condo literally 2 blocks from St. Mary's Church (how convenient). The timing was perfect and the church was absolutely beautiful. Their reception followed at the Scottish Rite Cathedral. They coolest thing of the evening were the personalized mirror stickers in the bathroom and the hot box breadsticks at the end of the night. After working 12 hours, I went to grab a bag of breadsticks and to my surprise they were all snatched up! This couple will be one I will always cherish! Weird thing, I recognized several guests and one was my children's pediatrician. How ironic was that!

Bridal Show

September 23

Take a look at our awesome display! We created this booth for our Scottish Rite Bridal Show. What a turn out! There were tons of brides and grooms despite the Colt's game on Sunday. We had a blast talking with everyone about their wedding. It was a little stressful creating such a display, but it was worth all the work. Don't worry if you missed the show, you will see this display again in January.
