The Sketchbook Series Seattle

This spring we were delighted to be the official planner for The Sketchbook Series Seattle at JM Cellars. The Sketchbook Series is a two-day creative and educational sketch workshop, founded by Mary Phan, which teaches fellow creative professionals how to leverage sketching as a tool; enabling them to engage with their imaginations and deliver design concepts in an artistic way, while opening the door to creative collaboration with fellow design and creative professionals.

A host of creative professionals joined us at JM Cellars in a beautifully inspired classroom, co-designed by Pink Blossom Events and Gather Design Company. Pink Blossom Events and Gather Design Company conceptualized “An Awakening” to celebrate the coming of spring and all of its bounty.  In a color palette of mustard, yellow, peach, orange, blush, ivory, and white, Gather Design Company created effortless, airy arrangements with the best that spring has to offer:  ranunculus, tulips, garden roses, sweet peas, and blooming plum, quince and forsythia branches.  The design included full blooms as well as more intricate blooms to give workshop attendees a chance to learn to sketch a variety of different flowers.  The range of warm colors was echoed in the velvet table linens from La Tavola, which cascaded down the walls and onto the tables where attendees sat for lunch.  The designers also utilized layering of textures and colors, as seen in the cake by Honey Crumb Cake Studio, the custom backdrop by Gather Design Company, and the paper goods and signage created by Dahlia Press and Letters By Ellen. Blue Rose Photography captured all the details of this two-day event.

Dearest BreeAnn, Thank you x 1000 for hosting me here in Seattle. I’m blown away by attention to detail and how much thought went into this class. I am forever grateful. Looking forward to two amazing days sketching together! XO, Mary

Employee Appreciation Harvest Party

School has begun which means fall is around the corner. The coming of fall has us dreaming of crisp autumn evenings, pumpkins and pie. Today we look back at an Employee Appreciation Harvest Party we had the opportunity to plan last fall. With the promise of a party at the owner’s home if the company reached their ultimate sales goal, the employees took on the challenge and surpassed that goal! With less than a month until the celebration we pulled together a Harvest Party for their sales team and family members that left their guests feeling both appreciated and grateful to be part of a successful team milestone.

As guests arrived at the designated parking lot noted in their invite they were picked up by Butler Seattle shuttles who transported them ten minutes down the road to our client’s home. Guests exited the shuttles and were greeted with a glass of wine and tray passed appetizers as they took in the event displayed in front of them. The upper lawn featured Pumpkin Ring Toss, two Pumpkin Tic Tac Toe Boards, Pumpkin Bowling, Corn Hole, a Paint Your Own Pumpkin Station and a photo booth incorporating cornstalks, haybales and custom props.

Scattered throughout the property were five raffle stations which asked employees and their family to guess the number of harvest themed candies in each jar. Those closest to the correct number were given prizes ranging from an overnight stay at a local casino to tickets to a pro football game. Not bad! These prizes were announced at the end of dinner prior to the start of dessert.                   

Inside the home guests were given free range of the kitchen, deck and game room downstairs. Making their way outside on the waterfront side of the home, a live band playing country and rock hits set the mood. A second bar as well as various options for seating allowed guests to enjoy the music and the beauty of the lake. A bit too cold for swimming but the perfect backdrop for live music!

     

When the dinner bell rang, employees gathered underneath the tent that sat upon our clients tennis court.  Long farm tables adorned with mum centerpieces and pumpkins were on display.

After dinner guests enjoyed root beer floats, mulled apple cider and hot cocoa. Apple, marionberry and pumpkin pies were also a hit!

As guests mingled with coworkers and introduced their family members to their coworkers that afternoon, my clients rejoiced in seeing their employees enjoying a celebration planned solely for their achievements. During the fall inspired dinner one could hear laughter and the joy of a successful collaboration. There were toasts of triumph, talks of future goals and a sense of pride of what one dedicated team can accomplish. The opening of the pie bar capped a sweet sales victory!

Summit Law Group 20th Anniversary ~ Seattle Event Planner

Twenty Years of Business is a milestone to celebrate and when Summit Law Group hosted their 20th Anniversary Party at Within Sodo they called Pink Blossom Events to plan a celebration to remember! As guests arrived at Within Sodo they were greeted by valet staff Butler Seattle and invited inside where the venue had been designed around the company’s colors of blue, yellow and gray bringing together a modern industrial affair highlighting twenty years of practicing law. Follow along all the fun with images by The Fix Photo Group!

One spectacular floral installation by Floressence!

The party included five different bars featuring a different signature drink highlighting each of the areas of legal service offered by Summit Law Group! How about a “Climate Cooler” courtesy of the Environmental Group?

Working with Crimson Haze we created a museum wall in the Gallery Room that featured three “screens” showing images of Summit Law Group over the years.

Champagne was offered from a champagne dress in the mirror room and a juggler mingled throughout the event entertaining guests.

 

The Lounge showcased an ice luge distributing The Labor Group’s “Time & 1/2” and “Minimum Wage” mocktails along with an espresso bar for those needing a pick me up!

Food stations highlighting the Pacific Northwest were scattered throughout Within Sodo.

As a farewell gift each guest received a gift complete with a custom Liberty Bottleworks and Theo Chocolate Bars.

I can’t thank you enough for making our event TRULY spectacular. I have heard nothing but raves and I know it is largely due to you and your team and your contacts and your tireless efforts. ~ Kristen, Summit Law Group

Investor Appreciation Reception at Glendale Country Club

We have the pleasure of working with a number of clients on their annual events including the annual Investor Appreciation Reception for Legacy Group Capitol. Every fall the reception is hosted after their Shareholder Meeting and is filled with music, beautiful floral and delicious bites. This past fall their annual event was held at Glendale Country Club. Photos by The Fix Photo Group.    

I can’t images doing an event without the help of BreeAnn. She is an expert at what she does. Her attention to detail, her work either and creative ideas are only a dent at what she brings to the table. When you work with BreeAnn you get the whole package. Years of experience, a network of vendors that have been vetted and her absolute willingness to go the extra mile. Events are hard work, but when working with BreeAnn it does not feel like work. Her energy and fun personality make the behind the scenes work a joy. Not only does she help build the vision and experience of the event she executes the details with ease. I will use BreeAnn in all our events.” ~ Lori

30th Birthday Party ~ The Little London Plane

Claire’s botanical inspired 30th birthday party was the perfect way to ring in a new decade. Celebrating with friends and family at The Little London Plane, guests arrived and were invited to grab a bit to eat; sip one of the specialty cocktails; write down advice for Claire; strike a pose in front of the flower wall or make their own floral adornment. Of course a birthday party isn’t complete without a fabulous birthday cake and that is exactly what Honey Crumb Cake Studio created! Disguised as an orchid terrarium, Honey Crumb Cake Studio crafted the terrarium that featured a cake base textured with chocolate and edible paint then adorned with hand-rolled fondant vines and piped leaves, and topped with sugar orchids and buds, crushed cookie “dirt” and a wired gumpaste cage. The cake itself was a vanilla cake with apple cider reduction and a cinnamon-whiskey cream cheese filling. If that wasn’t enough guest also had the opportunity to indulge in a donut from the donut wall! Thank you to  Lloyd Photographers for capturing one special birthday!

Maya & Laura ~ Lakedale Resort Wedding, San Juan Island

With a love of the outdoors (Maya proposed on the first day of an eight-day backpacking trip over the Wonderland Trail, the 96 miles around Mount Rainer, at sunset), we recommended Maya and Laura checkout Lakedale Resort on San Juan Island for their wedding venue and we are glad we did as Lakedale Resort provided the perfect setting for a wedding weekend celebrating the love of these two women. Our favorite details of the wedding included the personal touches from the welcome gifts they created that included a custom embroidered blanket to the ceremony structure built by Maya’s family using logs from Lakedale Resort; to the traditional Ukranian wedding bread highlighting Maya’s family heritage; to their sisters standing for them in addition to Laura’s sister who officiated their wedding day; as well as the surprise performance by Laura who played the guitar and sang a song dedicated to Maya as she knows how much Laura loves to hear her sing.

Dan & Robyn ~ Swiftwater Cellars Summer Wedding

Last summer Dan & Robyn hosted one epic wedding at Swiftwater Cellars! From the moment guests arrived at Suncadia Resort and were greeted with custom welcome gifts featuring their favorite things (yes, a bottle of Veuve included) to the last dance that lead to a sparkler send-off out front of Swiftwater Cellars this was a wedding we will never forget! Our favorite details included the mini terrariums at each place setting that doubled as a favor and a place card holder; the first course duo plate that included Robyn’s favorite clam chowder and the always popular caesar salad; and not to forget the dessert bar by Dianne’s Delights that boasted just about every dessert you could imagine! strapless-beaded-wedding-gown-hanging-in-the-window bride-and-bridesmaids-in-silk-robes wedding-rings-in-pink-flowers bride-in-strapless-gown-with-pink-and-red-bouquet bride-with-bouquet-looking-over-her-shoulder bride-and-groom-first-look bridal-portraits-at-swiftwater-cellars-summer-wedding bride-and-groom-in-silhouette bridal-portraits bridal-portraits bride-holding-gift-wrapped-in-silver-paper-with-a-purple-ribbon bride-gifts-groom-with-a-rolex engraved-rolex-groom-gift bridal-portraits-in-swiftwater-cellars bridal-portraits-in-swiftwater-cellars dramatic-black-and-white-bridal-portrait wedding-party-group-shot welcome-sign   wedding-reception-signage welcome-signs   guest-enjoy-charcuterie-at-reception large-bottle-of-red-wine    pink-and-red-flowers-and-engraved-napkins wedding-ceremony-site-and-flower-petals wedding-program-in-pink-roses unplugged-wedding-sign father-walking-daughter-down-the-aisle ceremony-at-swiftwater-cellars-summer-wedding ceremony-at-swiftwater-cellars-summer-wedding ceremony-at-swiftwater-cellars-summer-wedding wedding-lisence wedding-reception-tables wedding-reception-tables wedding-reception-tables wedding-reception-tables wedding-reception-tables wedding-reception-kids-tables golden-glowing-candles bride-and-groom-make-their-entrance soup-and-salad-course bride-and-groom-in-silhouette sunset-bridal-portraits-kiss-and-dip sunset-bridal-portraits-rings champagne-toasts-and-speeches champagne-toasts-and-speeches wedding-cakes-and-desserts wedding-cakes-and-desserts wedding-cakes-and-desserts wedding-cakes-and-desserts wedding-cakes-and-desserts wedding-cakes-and-desserts cutting-the-cake wedding-reception-mood-lighting first-dance first-dance first-dance wedding-dancing

Micaela & Billy ~ Seattle Waterfront Wedding

High school sweethearts, Billy and Micaela were married on the shores of Lake Washington at a private home by Billy’s grandfather one beautiful summer day. After working with Billy and Micaela for the eight months leading up to their big day we were simply enamored by all the love surrounding them. A crisp white palette accented by tropical palms set the stage for an elegant and modern celebration. One of our favorite touches to the wedding was when we passed around anniversary cards to each of the dinner tables asking each guest to write a message that the couple could open up on their 1st, 2nd or event 15th wedding anniversary! Billy was also adamant about having live music at the wedding (we couldn’t agree more) and Blue Wave Band surpassed expectations! Photos by Sullivan & Sullivan Photography.

BreeAnn, thank you for making our wedding day so special and for your months of hard work planning. Without you we would never have been able to pull off the wedding of our dreams that unfolded this past Saturday. You are amazing at what you do and Micaela and I are so appreciative to have been able to work with you. Thank you so much once again for all your hard work. -Micaela and Billy
