You're Invited's most popular items at the FBB

I thought it would be fun to showcase some of the brides' favorite pieces from our booth at the FBB. This china from Pickard was our most popular wedding registry item at the booth. The great thing about this line of china is that you can customize the monogram in several different fonts, and you can choose a different border around the plates. Shown below are two different examples of the china you can choose from:

Personalize Your Pickard ChinaOur Signature Collection of custom monogrammed fine china is the ultimate personalization program

Choose from the following options:

1)Ivory or white fine porcelain china body White vs Ivory comparison
2)Gold or platinum trim and monogram
3)Script or block monogram font Script Font+Enlarge Block Font+Enlarge

Choice of three, two or one letter monogram Three letter monogram Two letter monogram One letter monogram

The 2nd most popular item was the: "Eat, Drink and Be Married" rehearsal dinner invitation seen below.

It had copper and black ink, and was a huge hit among the brides who visited our booth!

Franklin Bridal Ball 2009

Well, we just finished the 2009 Franklin Bridal Ball at the Factory at Franklin, and Anna and I had a fabulous time! We definitely tried to incorporate our signature Hot Pink and Green in the booth.

So, to get ready for the FBB we enlisted the help of some wonderfully talented people! Who knew that our husbands were so great at tying bows and stuffing gift bags. You'll have to check out my adorable daughter too, as she was so proud to be my helper as I prepared the floral arrangements in my kitchen!

Here are some more pictures of our booth. Thanks to all the brides (and grooms, and mothers and friends) who stopped by to see us. We met some super sweet people, and we had a lot of fun getting ready for the event. By the way, for those that stopped and asked, "YES we do make custom pom poms in your choice of colors."

You're Invited Events Launches!

I am so excited to launch You’re Invited Events with my business partner and friend, Anna Peebles, owner of You’re Invited Gifts and Paper. I have been planning events since graduating college in 1999, on a part-time basis through word of mouth. Over the summer, I decided to partner with Anna and pursue event planning full-time. Event planning and everything it entails is a huge passion of mine. From a very early age, I have had a love for cooking, baking, entertaining and orchestrating events. I “wrote” my first cookbook in the 3rd grade (mainly by using my mom’s cookbooks to photocopy recipes at my dad’s store). I still remember the green construction paper cover and the photocopied pages I gave to my class!

Planning parties and events flourished out of my love for cooking and entertaining. I love working with clients to take an event from start to finish and all the fun details in between. I cannot wait to share party tips and pictures of events with my readers through this blog.

*By the way, come visit Anna and I at the Franklin Bridal Ball this Thursday night, September 24, 2009.

Whether it’s an intimate dinner party for 6 or a wedding for 500, You’re Invited can orchestrate the entire event. We’ll help create your vision and make it a reality.
