Real Event | GRunveiled 2012

GRunveiled 2012 has come and gone. Joy'l & I planned the third annual bridal show for Saturday, January 7, and we had an amazing turnout! It was a fabulous afternoon full of fun, food & fantastic spaces created by very creative event professionals. There are all sorts of photos on the GRunveiled Facebook page, and I may try to blog some, but for now, enjoy the Pearls Events space below.

This year, I incorporated food & drinks into my space. What a fabulous idea - almost everyone stopped for a cup of cocoa & a mini cupcake.

As always, Abbey from 6.25 Paper Studio (formerly Syd Design) did all of the graphic design, based on my current obsession with chevron, and my love for Valentine's Day. I then placed an order with Swirled Cupcakes for ten dozen mini cupcakes, which are, by far, the best cupcakes I've ever tasted. Seriously. Their cookie dough cupcake? Um, ah-mazing! I will be placing an order soon for a few birthdays we have coming up. Yum.

And then I pulled out all the details to make it come together. Samovar? Check (seriously, that thing to heat up water is technically a samovar.) Candles to create some light? Check. Striped straws? Check. Trays/pedestals/cake stands? Check. Pink cups? Check. Ten canisters of Land 'o Lakes hot cocoa & 12 cans of whipped cream? Check. Oh yeah, and all the glorious toppings? CHECK!

And the best part? ONE lovely assistant to help me stir it all up and serve it fresh? CHECK! I had the pleasure of hanging out with former client, Jill - you may remember her very own chevron themed 30th birthday party at the GRAM, all afternoon.

It was a great day. I'm so happy with how everything turned out, and also thrilled we had a lot of fun people come visit us.

Cheers to another wonderful GRunveiled!

Oh no! I'm so disappointed I missed this. I've been raving about it to my newly-engaged sister-in-law, but I wasn't expecting it until later in the year. I didn't see it advertised at all. I'm glad you had a great turn out, though!

Thanks for all the inspiration. I am always looking for ways to take my business to the next level. I am dreadful at bridal shows. I think cup cakes should be at every event! Thanks again.
