This weekend, we had the pleasure of putting on the Modern Femme Movement Conference. It is a 3 day conference and trade show that is a collaboration of female entrepreneurs, small business owners and powerhouse speakers from all walks of life. The event focused on empowerment, relationships, worthiness, business management, social media, body image, dream casting and more.
The event was held from May 12-14th at the Westin Virginia Beach Town Center.
There were so many awesome speakers present such as Jaime Primak-Sullivan, Shavon Lindley, Daniel Velicki, Cheryl Tan, Stephanie Nickolich, Amy Latta, Brittany Bullen, Tim Hussey and the list goes on! Not too many conferences possess the quantity and caliber of speakers that Modern Femme has!
Although I was working, I was able to grab some pics of the weekend. To learn more about Modern Femme, visit http://www.ModernFemme.com.
It’s been a little while since our last post, but that’s because we are in the midst of our busy season. The onset of our streak began last month when we were contacted by Liquid Soul Media to assist in the private screenings of the film Birth Of A Nation. The film is set to be released in October, but the studios and filmmakers wanted to do a screening in advance of the regular prescreening.
We had less than a week to assist the studio and marketing company in setting up two screenings in two separate cities that would run simultaneously. Let’s just say that with the help of great friendors, we were able to make it happen!
I will not go into details about the movie at this time, but I will say that it is a must see! Here are a few captures from our Norfolk screening. Thank you to The Redellyn Group and Ryan Wynn for helping MEBA bring these two screenings to fruition in such a short time.
Introducing change #1, our new logo…
While at a local fabric store, I came across some gorgeous faux leather fabric. I immediately wondered how I could incorporate it for a design!
Most of my followers know that I love to mix textures, colors and patterns. This design would be no different. I used the fabric for my table linen and combined it with tones of gold and ivory. The floral arrangement helped to soften the table.
The tableware consisted of tones of ivory and gold. The patterns also varied per setting. The large plates were all the same pattern, but the saucers were completely different as some had gold sparkles and others had writing.
Take a look at some of the photos that we captured of our design.
Yes, I know that the holidays are officially over but there’s never a time limit for event design. Over the holidays I had the opportunity to share holiday tablescape ideas with the viewers of “Montage.”
Per their website “Montage is a television program dedicated to all things lifestyle-based. From transforming a fashion fit and creating the perfect make-up look, to concocting new food and drink recipes and DIY projects, Montage gives you tips and tricks on how to upgrade your lifestyle. Montage segments are ever-changing and always highlight unique and non-traditional ways to do almost anything. A half-hour show for young men and women ages 18-34 who appreciate entertainment, inspiration, creativity, and a fun way of life.”
You all know that I love the untraditional! Without further adieu, here’s the link to the episode. My segment starts at the 8:45 mark. http://www.redelynngroup.com/season-2-episodes.
This year, my New Year’s Eve will be pretty low key. Last year, I was working an event and brought in the new year blessed but tired. This year, I think that I am going to just stay at home and enjoy some time with close friends and family.
Many of you may be hosting get togethers at home, so I thought that I would share some tablescape ideas for your New Year’s Eve soirée.
Last evening, I had the pleasure of attending the Grand Opening of the Glass Wheel Studio. Glass Wheel Studio is a contemporary art facility located in the heart of The NEON, Norfolk’s Arts District. The event allowed guests the opportunity to meet artists from the 2015-16 Studio Artist Program, and view their inaugural exhibition PROVENANCE featuring works by Jon Goldberg, Natalie Abrams, and Liz Berk. This was accentuated by entertainment provided by a live DJ, delicious passed hors de’ oeuvres compliments of Omar’s Carriage House and a cash bar.
I truly enjoyed being in this creative space and interacting with the various artists, but I also got to release my own creative juices by contributing to a communal painting. As always, I snapped plenty of photos, so take a peek at some of the awesomeness from last evening. Also, make sure to check out the Glass Wheel Studio for yourself and check their website for upcoming events!
Make It Memorable!
