We hope that you had the most amazing Mother’s Day and if you are not a Mom, we hope you did something wonderful with all of the moms around you.
We wanted to share some exciting news. Our ellyB and Friends Client Appreciation Event was featured in the newest issue of Occasions Magazine which hit stands on May 1! It is an amazing issue so if you do not have a copy please make sure to grab it ASAP!
As guests entered the gallery they were greeted with fabulous paper decor by Lucky and Lovely with decals from ten23 designs that were used throughout the space.
The stationery set the tone for the event and contained the ellyB brand story.
The event is not complete without matching signature drinks!
If you know me you know I love a little bit of bling!
So I am a little backward in this post and decided to start with my desserts first. Hey I would eat my dessert first if I was given the option. So we decided to take a room in the gallery and turn it into our very own sweetshop. There was two full walls full of desserts that the guests were able to nibble on at their leisure.
Now on to the cocktail hour which I affectionately dubbed the pink room!
Proof of the Pudding and Endive did an amazing job with the food and presentation as they greeted our guests.
Now on to the blue room which was the main reception area. Not only did the DJ get the crowd going with the sounds, but Belly Dancers came out to show everyone a few moves.
Other entertainment including the very fun Halo Booth as well as this cigar lounge hosted by Lashes and Mustashes. Let’s just say we had to go for the grooms a few times.
We cannot thank our AMAZING couples enough for coming out to celebrate with us. Our vendors did an amazing job with this event, and for that we are forever eternally grateful!

I am a fairly new Event Planner & Coordinator in North Carolina and I follow you on Twitter. I just wanted to take the time to say that you are truly an inspiration to me. I love your creative visions and seeing your extravagant events are perfect motivation for me to realize that I can have my aspirations realized. Thanks so much for being a great example of what it means to create something profitable from something passionate.
Carita thank you so much for your sweet comments! This really made my day and I am honored that I am able to help you in any way possible.
AMAZING!!! I love every bit of it! Congratulations on making the magazine. I have never seen that magazine down here… if I cannot find one, is there any chance you can send me a copy?
