Talking About Food

Since we are about to hit one of the most fabulous "eating" days of the year, I'd like to share an interview I gave to renowned chef and author, Maria Liberati for her "What's In Your Fridge" series on her website.

As a wedding planner, I've always been intrinsically "entrenched" in the creation of my client's menus because food and beverage are a huge part of the reception planning process. My theory has always been that good food and drink help to make a party very merry!!!

And while I can plan the most discerning, palate-pleasing event menu for my clients, I'm really a girl with Southern roots. Read the interview and see what I'm talking about!!!

Happy Thanksgiving

Just a short note from all of us here at Premiere Event Management - we wish all of you a happy and blessed Thanksgiving! Our offices will be closed starting today (Tuesday, November 25th) at noon and we'll reopen on Monday, December 1st.

Enjoy this time with your family and friends - remember, we all have much to be thankful for!!!

Today's DISH has everything to do with shoes. Those of you who know me well also know that I am a bonafide shoe FANATIC...the fact that I own over 200 pair is, well....beside the point :)

Most brides I know spend a fair amount of time finding the perfect shoe to wear with their dress (or dresses if you are a 2 gown or more gal). Ditto for the ladies in their wedding posse..as we all know, a great shoe really gives any outfit that certain dash of "pow"! However, there's nothing like strutting your stuff only to have the heel of that ultra-fab shoe get stuck in a utility grate, the crack in the sidewalk or a couple of inches into otherwise unforgiving grass or mud. Unless you are "flatting" it for the day in ballet slippers or flip flops, you and your heels will meet up with a force that's not so kind.

Enter the Sole Mates High Heeler. Created by Becca Brown & Monica Murphy, this ingenious "helper" allows women to wear their gorgeous stilletos, kitten and other high heels without the worry or aggrivation of getting stuck in a unforgiving sidewalk crack, or sinking to unpleasant depths in wet mud or grass. The premise and use are simple - place the heel in one of the Sole Mates, tap lightly to assure that it's on securely and you are done!

What a great gift for the bride to be or her wedding party! And at $11.95 per set - it's a small price to pay for the preservation of your fabulous shoes!! Retail locations are listed on the website or you can order online and free shipping is available in the United States if you purchase two or more sets.

Many thanks to my colleague, Loretta Smith of Final Touches Make The Difference, LLC in Indianapolis for introducing me to this amazing product and gracing me with my first 2 pair! So..that's two down with about 100 more to go :)
