Showcase @ The Events Company

We recently hooked up with The Events Company located right here in Syracuse, NY.  When Nicole and company invited us to bring some of our favorite things to play, we just couldn’t resist.  We set up a lovely sweetheart tablescape with our chippy paint farm table and china and dressed it up with some cork-filled mason jars.  We also set up our tall boy, which we love to use as a place for signing the guest book at any special event.  Paired with shutters for table cards, we think it makes the perfect welcome area.  Topped off with some books, scrabble letters and suitcases to complete the rustic, vintage look, we think it’s perfect.

The showroom at The Events Company is filled with beautiful displays and we love being a part of it.  Come check us out along with Nicole’s other great exhibits at 230 Harrison Street, Syracuse, NY. Keep in mind that we will be changing out our items every few weeks if you need an excuse to keep going back!

Garden Launch Party

There may be few who appreciate summer as much as Central New Yorkers.  As this summer drew to a close we decided to bring this business project that we’d been working on to some of our greatest supporters: our friends.  We hosted a launch cocktail party in one of the prettiest gardens in the area.  Among the flowers and statues we highlighted the beauty and function of some of our favorite pieces.

We could not have done it without the collaboration of a few key local vendors.  Local photographer and artistic genius Genevieve Fridley  has a point of view that perfectly suited our vision.  Her eye for detail doesn’t just capture the moment, but truly creates art.   Katie Lemos Brown, celebration consultant and author of the Lovewell Post , really gets us and what we are trying to do in bringing a vintage perspective to life’s special events.  She is behind the overall design concept of the event and was vital in coordinating all the vendors. Maria Giacona, from La Dolce Vita prepared the most amazing confections. They were stunningly decorated and the taste was to die for.  Whistlestop Florist  provided the flowers.  They were nothing short of fantastic!  The vibrant colors complemented our pieces perfectly.  Nanette & crew can really take a concept and run with it.  The results are always spectacular.

Was our little soiree a success?  We think so.  Everyone had a fabulous time.  Laughter rang late into the night and the feedback was just the encouragement we needed to move forward. The tandem bicycle may be everyone’s new best friend. Complete hit!

Check!

Name, check. Inventory, check – but let’s get more… who doesn’t love a shopping trip? Website…. wow, that was a long check, who knew there were dozens of providers and five times as many differences between them. Consult with an accountant, check. County Clerk’s Office, check. Facebook, check. Consult with an accountant again, check. Blog (Finally!), check. Connect with local professionals, share concept and hope they like you, check, check and check!!!

Fast forward from last March, we are so proud of our accomplishments. Nothing is more satisfying than meeting with new people, sharing your concept and hearing their encouragement. We have gained the support from so many talented vendors, it’s quite a humbling experience. And the best part about all of this is, we get to do what we love!!! So in the near future, lots more to work on. Logo and branding, business cards, inventory and lots more connecting.

We continue to build our inventory and every day we are on the hunt. After all, you never know when that “find” is upon you. So without further adieu, here’s a snap shot of our most favorite finds.
