Happy Humpday loves!
I recently hosted the Black Friday Fashion Brunch Event at the Crowne Plaza in White Plains, NY and it was an experience! I’m amazed how quickly time flew because I remember trying to come up with fun ways to host this event. I was so excited when I was asked to host this fashion brunch event since I’m a creative person and I wanted everyone who was attending to have a fabulous time! This event included about 11 vendors, one of them being my lovely mother and aunt who make beautiful, handmade, one of a kind jewelry! If you are looking to buy gifts for your mother, best friend, sister, etc, then check out their Instagram, aryanas_collection to find some great pieces (contact them for pricing).
There were a variety of vendors, some of them being jewelry, photography, children’s clothing, home-made jams, pampering products, and all of those artisan goods. I had my booth which I decorated it all pretty and sparkly. I put out some fake pearl necklaces, pink Hershey kisses, pink hair ties, business cards, sparkly confetti all over the table and a couple of baskets with pink goodie bags made by me 🙂 I even put a cute frame with my photo on it mentioning the event, and thanks to Crowne for getting the #BRUNCH balloons for the event. There was a fun boomerang station with shopping bags, and anyone who participated in getting a table for brunch received a glass of mimosa, a unicorn floatie and was entered in for the winter staycation at the hotel! Cool huh?
I was so thrilled to see all my friends come to the event to shop for the holiday and it was so fun networking with some of my Westchester bloggers. There was a photographer on-site who took all the photos for the event and everyone who attended; mingled, ate, and shopped! Also, if your ever at Crowne, be sure to try out their Unicorn waffles, it was so delish!!
Hosting an event is so much fun but it does take a lot of dedication, hard work, and can be so stressful!! I’m glad everything worked out, It was such a fabulous, fun and successful event!
