The Knot Pro Workshop - Dallas

Through the years, The Knot Pro has worked hand in hand with wedding planners and caterers all around the world. This year, the well known wedding industry has started something new. Instead of being exclusive to only planners and caterers, the Knot Pro has decided to open their doors to the public. Through their highly rated “test trials”, brides of all walks of life are able to come up close to all of the wonderful products and services that The Knot Pro has to offer. This past September, the Make Your Life Sweeter® team was asked to participate in the Knot Pros very first trail run in Dallas Texas!

My team and I arrived in the early morning to set up for the days festivities and were blown away by the transformation of the venue. As guests walked in, they were greeted with an ombre wall of colors and important information as they checked in for the day. Brides welcomed quests through the doors, dressed in the most beautiful dresses that I had ever seen.

As you walked through the building, you were transformed into multiple dream weddings. We had the modern bride, whose room was chic and glam; we had the traditional room full of beautiful finger foods and floral landscapes. To the left we had a room full of donut walls and chairs of all different shapes and sizes, and in the other we had floor seating with bohemian table pieces and tapestries lining the walls. Every kind of bride was illustrated into the making of this beautiful masterpiece. Wether you wanted a traditional or bohemian wedding, you were sure to find inspiration within these walls.

When the Make Your Life Sweeter® team arrived, we were escorted to the bohemian room and began to set up for the days festivities. Guests were welcomed with a Sugaire® Organic Cotton Candy Infusion Bar as they entered the venue and were ecstatic over the sweet treat.

The Knot Pro’s first bride friendly convention was an amazing success and cannot wait to see what the future has to offer for this amazing company!

Facebook Holiday Party NYC

New York City is home to some of the most innovative and high tech companies in the world. This past December, we had the opportunity to explore Facebook’s insanely SWEET office.

Most large work spaces and offices are designed with cubicles and plain walls - Facebook is NOTHING like that. Everything about this office was fascinating. It’s every employee’s dream office; no two rooms or floors are alike, you’re fed three meals a day with an abundance of options.  Here are just a few of the SWEETEST things I saw while at Facebook NY!

  1. Nestled inside the world of Facebook is Sweet, sweet Instagram. The North side of the 7th floor belongs to Instagram’s programmers and consultants.  Since the holidays were just around the corner, we treated the Instagram team to a hot chocolate bar infused with their choice of  Sugaire® Cotton Candy (Classic, Sweet Peppermint or Sea Salt Caramel).

2. Micro Kitchens are conveniently located around each floor, stocked with a plethora of your favorite snacks and drinks. Each micro kitchen included a snack cart, three refrigerators full of every drink imaginable, and a latte machine for coffee and tea. My favorite snack was Peeled Snacks Organic Dried Mango with a FOUND Elderflower Sparkling Water. SO YUMMY!!

3. Motivational. Posters. EVERYWHERE. Literally everywhere I turned there was a poster telling me to continue doing what I love and I loved it!! I was introduced to many new quotes, along with some of my favorites. Positivity was all around! Along with the motivational posters, each office and conference room was named something hilarious. There was a “Pokemon” office and a “Leggo my Eggo” conference room, to name a few.

4. “The Weekly Push” - this is a weekly update posted inside the stalls of each bathroom stall that gives insight on specific Q & A’s, How To’s and updates on how Facebook is doing as a whole company. Besides the articles on the stall doors, these restrooms are DECKED OUT! Essentials such as sanitary items, deodorant, toothbrushes, floss and mouthwash are provided in each of the restrooms. Forgetting something essential at home is so annoying, but Facebook has helped employees by providing everything that they may need to be comfortable in the office.

5. My favorite thing about FacebookNY’s office is none other than the FOOD. Gourmet food is provided for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Desimone's is a cafeteria set up like a school cafeteria, but with a more adult feel to it. Cafeteria tables are set up and employees actually sit next to each other and socialize. The chef’s prepare food for all dietary restrictions. There is also an extravagant salad bar with any salad item you can imagine, a make-your-own sandwich bar that ends with panini grills and even an ice cream cart filled with your favorite flavors of organic ice cream!

Every Thursday from 5pm-7pm a happy hour mixer happens in the cafeteria. The awesome event staff that organizes this event, features different vendors with yummy snacks and treats every week! This happy hour happened to be SWEETER than any normal happy hour, because we were in attendance with a Hotpoppin® Gourmet Popcorn Bar bar and a Sugaire® Organic Cotton Candy hot chocolate infusion bar! While all of the employees were enjoying their Chinese takeout inspired dinners and taking pictures in the photo booth, they were stopping by our tables for some popcorn and hot chocolate!

My team and I had an unforgettable experience at the Facebook office. Our clients, Carolyn Nagler & Daniel Stokes, took such great care of us and we can’t wait to be back again to make Facebook a little bit sweeter!!

44th Annual Cattle Baron's Ball

They say everything’s bigger in Texas, especially the parties. Since its inaugural year in 1974, The Cattle Baron’s Ball has been raising money for the American Cancer Society. This SWEET event has raised over 68 million dollars and continues to be the largest single-night fundraiser in the country! The Cattle Baron’s Ball has been in shows like “Dallas” and has hosted some of the greatest country music artists of all time. Gilley’s Dallas opened their doors in 2003, and since then has hosted the renowned Cattle Baron’s Ball every year.

This year’s theme was “Shooting for the Stars” and boy, did it live up to its name! Tents, music and the entire Gilley’s venue lit up the night.

Three rooms and a tent were dedicated strictly to food and drinks. The smell of barbecue filled the hallways and rooms and country music was playing all around. Our HotPoppin® Gourmet popcorn bar was set up in the dessert room where we shared space with an ice cream cart and saddle seats for mingling.

Live auctions with prizes such as poker games with past and present Dallas Cowboys, autographed photos, vacation packages and meet-and-greets with Brooks and Dunn raised over $100,000 this year.

 

Each year, Cattle Barons Ball brings in some of the hottest country legends. This year we got treated to not one, not two, but three great performers. Pat Green performed in the VIP stage and then everyone moved to the main stage to see Brooks and Dunn perform. I am not too familiar with country music, but they were amazing performers who knew how to liven up a crowd! The energy in the main stage tent was electrifying. Everyone was singing and dancing the night away.

 

This event was so, so amazing and I can’t thank The Cattle Baron Ball team enough for bringing us back for another year of fun!
