Before I get talking about this gorgeous event that I was proud to be a part of, let me introduce you to the new domain and design. Tender Roots is the name I have been thinking about a lot lately and the name I was in the process of changing my blog to when I wrote this post. I am now www.Tender-Roots.com and it feels so good! The name is something that I feel I can relate to more than just "Yelle Events." And have no fear, the feed is the same and the old www.YelleEvents.com redirects here. (The new name is already inspiring me - I did not intend that to rhyme!)
The name Tender Roots has a lot of meaning to me. Right now S + I live together in an apartment that we've had for about 4 years now. Even though we've stayed in it this long and love it so much, it's not our home forever. We know we will be moving away, whether in a year or five years, it won't always be our home . Our next home won't be our home forever and I don't even think the home after that will be our home forever. I really feel like my roots are tender and I have to be careful about getting too attached to a place I call home, for now.
Thanks for all of the encouragement on my previous post. Changing a blog name is a little scary and a lot of hard work. I'm not nearly 100% complete with the design (I want S to make a special header image for me - similar to the current one) and I won't ever be 100% sure about the content of this blog. I'm letting this blog go where ever it feels right and changing the name to Tender Roots felt oh so right.
Recently we had a major event for a Fortune 500 company. I couldn't take photos that included any of their banners or signage, so of course I can't exactly say what company it was. Although, it was catered by my favorite central Florida catering company, the ones doing my own wedding, Puff n Stuff. The caterers even did the floral arrangements for this event which we a mixture of greens and and different textures.
The dinner reception was held in our dinosaur exhibit and made for a wonderful conversation piece. I love it when our booked clients aren't afraid to embrace the exhibits that we have. This dinosaur exhibit was embraced in such a classy way, with shimmering pin-tuck linens and low and textured centerpieces. Even the addition of the blue up-lights envelope the room in a dramatically chic way. This exhibit hall is great on it's own without all of these special touches, but this exhibit hall really shines bright when the dinosaurs are embraced and not ignored.
