The full-day Educational Session was at FLUXX and the vibrant color palette was enhanced with a ton of beautiful little branded details at each place setting provided by Stacie and her sponsors (event programs, notebooks, place cards, water bottles with coasters, phone chargers, calendars, binders).
The delicate floral arrangements by White Lotus Productions were the perfect touch, and linens by Sweet Ribbon Events brought a great pop of color. Platinum Event Rentals provided all the tables and Chiavari chairs.
Attendees were greeted with a swag bag full of goodies (snacks, earrings, magazines, gift certificates, and much more!), a custom badge, and a “good morning” Frappuccino.
Stacie touched on several different topics during the educational session: branding, marketing, budgeting, social media, how to get published, creating our own reality TV show. She included a group question and answer format to promote business-building relationships.
Lunch break was at Bice, an Italian restaurant with a long history and famous for its innovative cuisine.
Chef Mario prepared a great menu that included a cheese and cured meat display, lacinato kale and farro salad, homemade pasta with wild mushrooms, baked eggplant parmigiana, and pan seared Chilean seabass.
The grand finale was a display of mini desserts including Bice’s famous tiramisu.
When ISSE attendees returned to FLUXX for the second part of the educational session, they found a custom signature fragrance (by Pastiche Perfume) with assorted chocolate favors (by Sobelle) and a colorful pinwheel at their seats.
Stacie included several activities during the afternoon to make the session fun and interactive.
After the Graduation Ceremony, Cotton Clouds For A Cause rewarded the alumni with sweet cotton candy – in a light pink matching the event color palette, of course!
More sweetness was revealed: a whimsical dessert table designed by me and my favorite girls at Sweet Cheeks Baking and Embellishmint. I will dedicate my next blog post to this work of art, Stacie was speechless when the table was rolled out on stage!
