Palette, Paper, Linen and MORE…

It’s hard to believe that the Special Event Planning course that I instruct at Wake Tech will soon be coming to an end!

I have had the pleasure of meeting and conversing with many fabulous people over the past two months, some of which will go on to have amazing careers in the events industry.

I am fortunate to have great relationships in this industry and two of my favs have honored me with their presence in this semester’s class.  The wonderful Bridget DuPre of Connie Duglin Linen and Stacey Motley of The Paper Cafe.

Bridget wowed the class with her knowledge of linens and

the vast selection available to add that needed effect to any special occasion.

She did an awesome job!

Stacey is so passionate about what she does, who knew there was so much to be said about paper! Many people are not aware that there are more options available than what they see everyday.  The value of a professional is unmatched!  If you’re not sure if that professional touch is in your budget, ASK STACEY!

    

Thank you ladies for giving us a glimpse into your world!

KEEP IT SEXY!


You Can Do It!!

I am a born educator. 

I have always had a love of learning and a passion for events and I now have the opportunity to do all that I love.

Isn’t that what it’s all about?  If you have the chance to do something you love and help people at the same time, then I say go for it.  Too often we worry about what other people will think or say about a decision that we have made or how we choose to do something. We then allow ourselves to be held back and ultimately set back from our original goal.

Stand firm behind your decisions and remember that what is for you in this life cannot be changed by anyone else’s thoughts or actions.

Sometimes those same people trying to block you,

will inadvertently do something to help you move closer to your dream!

Find time in your day to breathe and say something nice to someone.  Make a step into your future and don’t look back.  If you step in a puddle, dry your foot and keep it moving.

Stay strong, stay encouraged and as always… KEEP IT SEXY!
