Vendor Profile: Hampton Inn and Suites South Park at Phillips Place

I went by the Hampton Inn and Suites in South Park at Phillips Place to view the newly remodeled Great Room. What a gem! This room has so much character and instantly inspired thoughts of whimsical sophistication. The blue, orange, mustard and cream colors are so royal and the multiplicity of fun furniture styles, that is available for your use, makes you smile at the endless possibilities of how you can recreate this space for your wedding reception, bridal shower, or any other special occasion.

What also makes this space so unique is that you can utilize the outdoor space for your wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Your ceremony can take place in the patio area outside, which can be tented and then you can move your guest to the pool area for a fun and fanciful cocktail hour.

Leslie's Baby Shower

Here are pictures from the baby shower that I planed for my BFF Leslie and her baby girl Nya, at her parents home in Detroit. Little Miss Nya Nicole should be arriving any day. Leslie is due on May 28th! The baby shower was a spa themed day of pamper for the mom-to-be and guests. We sent Leslie off to get a prenatal massage before the baby shower and had 3 spa stations set-up for guests when they arrived. The guests were able to relax and have fun at the "Tickle Your Tootsies" station with a warm coconut and honey foot soak and lemon and salt exfoliation, the "Herbal Steaming Facial" with tantalizing scents of rosemary and mint and the "Satin Hands" station which exfoliated and moisturized the guests hands with olive oil, rosemary, and sea salt.

What an afternoon of relaxation and fun!

Fabulous Local Store Find: Target

Oh how I love Target!!! And now that they have the "One Spot" I can't get enough of that store. For those who may not know, the "One Spot" at Target is a small section in the front of the store that has everything you need for an event (favors, decorations, gifts, etc.) ranging from $1-$2.50.

The Super Target in Moresville has some excellent finds.

Beautiful small lanterns in blue, green and clear. These can be used in an arrangement for a centerpiece.

Girls gone wild! Every year Target has great stuff for bachelorette parties. This year they have disposable cameras, tiaras, bead necklaces, shot glasses, flip-flops and more.

Another great event with the Michael Catlow Group!

What a Saturday! Our School of Charm classes are now in session at the Hobby Lobby located in the University Area! If you missed it this Saturday, don't forget to register for the upcoming classes.

Also, on Saturday I had the opportunity to work on the behalf of the Michael Catlow Group on another fabulous wedding, as the reception coordinator for Molly and Tony's wedding. Their reception took place at the Manor House in Christenbury Village in Concord, NC. The Manor House is an awesome community room with two outdoor patios, a pool, and more. The room was transformed into a very rich, warm and romantic reception filled with candles and lush flowers. Matt, from the Michael Catlow Group, rocked the reception with a mix of country and hip-hop to suit the tastes of both the bride and groom. What a great day! Congrats to Molly and Tony!

Take a look at the beautiful Manor House at Christenbury Village!

Single Ladies!

Beyonce has come up with the ultimate anthem for single women and should be given an award for "Best Song for Bouquet Toss" at a wedding in Summer 2009!

Check out the You Tube version of the SNL skit with Justin Timberlake performing Single Ladies with Beyonce. LOL!

Fabulous Local Store Find: Cinco De Mayo!

The Dollar Tree is another one of my fave stores for affordable finds. If you're planning a fiesta themed party these guacamole bowls are an awesome favor. You could pair it with a recipe for guacamole (or salsa) and a small bag of tortilla chips.

Fabulous Local Store Find: Bridal Party Gifts

On my weekly trip to Homegoods in Northcross Shopping Center, I found these great shoe and laundry travel bags ($9.99 each)! They are the perfect gift for your bridal party, especially if you are planning a destination wedding.

Behind the Planner: April 14, 2009

Not only do I enjoy planning weddings and events, I also have a passion for fashion accessories. In 2006, I started a fashion accessory company called Boutique Finesse. Boutique Finesse provides chic and glamorous fashion accessories at a great price. The past seven months have been a time of re-branding for Boutique Finesse, I re-launched BoutiqueFinesse.com, the website that houses our products (earrings, necklaces, bracelets), as well as, secured partnerships with local salons and spas to carry the jewelry in their shops.

My future plans for Boutique Finesse is to launch our bridal collection, which will solely feature jewelry for bridesmaids. That being said, last week I was MIA because I was working with bride-to-be Shannon, a client of Bridget, owner of Ella Elise Invitation and Stationery Studio. Shannon sought out Boutique Finesse for our Gift of Glamour service, which takes the stress out of wedding planning by helping brides select jewelry for their bridesmaids. We become a bride’s personal shopper for their bridal jewelry!

I enjoyed working with Shannon and can’t wait to see pictures from her royal pink and gold wedding!

For more information about Boutique Finesse bridal jewelry please contact info@boutiquefinesse.com.

Last week, I had the pleasure of assisting the Michael Catlow Group at a wedding reception at the Charles Mack Citizen Center in Mooreseville.

What a great facility! Positioned in the heart of the Mooresville business district, the Charles Mack Citizen Center, is very charming! It offers a great banquet space and a beautiful outdoor terrace for an outdoor ceremony or cocktail hour.

The Michael Catlow Group is an awesome one stop shop! They offer packages for DJ services, photography, videography, and event coordination. What a great group! I will be working with them again this Saturday at a wedding reception at The Manor House in Christenbury Village. I can’t wait!
