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!

100 Ideas for Living a Beautiful Life in Dallas

Our first event of 2018 was soooo SWEET!

We made it on the D Home “100 Ideas for Living a Beautiful Life in Dallas.” YAY!!!

This event showcased some of the best vendors around Dallas for living a beautiful, luxurious life. We had a very special activation for this event. Instead of using our popcorn bins and a regular table, we worked with our venue and space and had HotPoppin® and Sugaire® INSIDE SINKS!!! We have never done an activation like this and it was a total HIT!! Seeing everyone’s expressions as they walked in to see popcorn and cotton candy inside sinks was so memorable.

The venue for this event was none other than Expressions Home Gallery in the Dallas Design District. It almost felt like Expressions was made for this D Home event. Every aspect of this venue was so aesthetically pleasing. The very first thing people saw was a beautiful bathtub filled with a gorgeous flower arrangement from The Southern Table. I could feel the excitement of people as they walked in to see the home gallery wonderland.

Bass was rattling chandeliers, The Bowen House Dallas bartenders were serving up some amazing cocktails and Oakclifff’s Garnish Kitchen was Flambé-ing away.

While mingling, guests had several different activations to see. Oil and Cotton was teaching calligraphy with leaves and Maxine Owens from The Southern Table was demonstrating DIY flower arrangements.

D Home and D magazine are very near and dear to my heart. I have been working with them since I started Make Your Life Sweeter and I am so glad I still get the opportunity to work with them. This event was SO SWEET! Everything came together perfectly and my team had a blast meeting new vendors, clients and new friends.

Until next time, D Live!

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!!

McKool Smith

A night full of serendipitous laughter and dancing were in full effect the night of December eighth. Held at the beautiful Belo mansion, the Mckool Smith law firm held their annual holiday party in the most extravagant way.

The “lights” theme was in full swing starting at the door. Guests were greeted by 12 foot robotic characters signaling their way to the entrance using laser guns, quite the entrance if you ask me! Inside you were handed light-up necklaces from women dressed in LED dresses with matching headsets.

The historic Belo Mansion was completely redecorated to fit the nights theme. They sure lit it up!! Chandeliers made of disks were covering the ceiling, reflecting a beautiful rainbow off of anyone's path it crossed. Light’s of all different colors ran up the walls. Floral pieces decorated the tables with the most magical embellishments.

Every room had a different theme, as well as a different act. In the first room you were greeted by an insanely talented singer with a dress of fire. (Don’t worry, it was computerized!) In the second room, dueling piano singers doing some amazing...well, you guessed it, duets! In the next held Tarot readers, dressed to the nine in the most whimsical outfits anyone had ever seen.

The food was served in fish- bowl like dishes to guests and included many choices for even the pickiest of eaters. From shrimp to french fries, everyone's deepest cravings were satisfied with the food selection.

The excitement of the night skyrocketed as the Make Your Life Sweeter® team entered the party. Whimsical women dressed head to toe in reflected outfits carried a plethora of light up Sugaire® on trays out to eager guests. The party- goers couldn’t get enough of the SWEET treat. Flavorful poofs of Gingerbread and Sweet Peppermint flavored Organic Cotton Candy couldn’t make their way around the room fast enough!

The night ended with men and women of all ages dancing and singing on the dance floor to a Canadian cover band with an amazing spectrum of songs, as well as eighty different costume changes. It was a SWEET night, to say the least!

MS Society Luncheon - November 10, 2017

Each year, we donate our services to some SWEET organizations and charities. The MS Society® has, and continues to hold a very special place in my heart. A few years ago, my aunt was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. I have seen the effects of living with this disease first hand and am more than happy to help in any way possible when it comes The MS Society®.  

This past year I was chosen as the “MS Society Person on the Move” and was so grateful for the opportunity to make everyones day a little sweeter. The MS Society® of Texas was also celebrating their 1 million dollar donation milestone, which made for a amazing evening!

What an honor  it was to be selected as 2017’s “Person on the Move”! I still can't believe it, but I am so proud to be a supporter of The MS Society®.
