We were so lucky to be invited to the very prestigious invitation only conference put on by Stacie Ivers Francombe. Stacie invited the famous party planner Colin Cowie, Colin has done countless celebrity weddings and events. Colin spoke to us about the word vendors, he said the people we collaborate with are more than vendors they are “Creative Partners’. On our four hour ride home from the conference the “Collaboration of Creative Partner’s” lunch was born.
Collaboration of Creative Partners lunch consists of us hosting a monthly intimate luncheon that creates an opportunity for elite vendors of Bakersfield, CA to come together and learn more about each other. What makes them tick, why do they do what they do, how did they get started? It is so much fun in our fast past environment to take an hour and get to know people we work with so closely on a whole new level.
Everyone has a story and we want to hear it. This is an invitation only event and we will strive to make it a memorable experience for everyone involved. You’ll never know what fairy dust we’ll bring to the table.
In January we kicked off our very first luncheon with these creative partners:
Eric of Bakersfield Country Club
Mark of Walker Lewis
Amanda and Diana of House of Flowers
JC of AllSound Music
Daniel and Stacie of Boone & Stacie Photography
Mai of De Coeur Bake Shop
Paper Products by Matinae Design Studio (was greatly missed)
The lunch took place at Bakersfield Country Club, with an intimate setting and new year’s feel to kick off 2016 on the right foot. We played a game that we won’t reveal to much about because we plan to do it again with our new round of invitees in February. Then we proceeded to circle the table to learn about each other, our goals for the new year and inspiration in the event industry.
We would’ve never known that Mark has a soft spot for bread pudding and anything chocolate or that Amanda worked at her grandparent’s antique shop as a child or as she likes to call it”child labor”
Thank you to everyone that joined! We’re soooo excited to see what we learn next month!
