Double Duty Weekend (event recap)

A few months ago, I was contacted by a client that I worked with last year. She wanted to throw a party for her husband’s 40th birthday. I was honored that she valued my work enough to hire me again, and we got right away! I was able to find an amazing venue, but it wasn’t available on her desired date. After some thought, she decided to book the venue, and change the date. That’s how I ended up pulling double duty.

Saturday afternoon, I hosted a pre-Mother’s Day event at the Holiday Inn Express in Longview, TX. It was a blast! I was able to work with some really amazing vendors.

This Silpada table was so cute!

There was shopping, girl talk, and even raffle prizes!

Our VIP ticket holders were able to retreat to a quiter area where they enjoyed refreshments, facials, massages, and a hand-scrub spa treatment. mother's day food table.JPG




I want to thank my mother-in-law for not only helping me set-up, but for staying to ensure the venue was put back together. She had to pitch-in so I could leave early, and drive to Dallas for the 40th birthday party!!


I was exhausted when I arrived, but I was able to set-up in record time. My client wanted a very elegant look for the event so we decided to go with gold.

In order to add some visual variety, I did not use matching centerpieces. However, each table had a mate on the other side of the room.

The stage was set for the birthday boy.

The best part of the evening for me was this smile on the birthday boy’s face.

I love what I do, but I’m soooo glad I survived my double duty weekend!
