NACE @ The Crowne Plaza Westshore

We love our local chapter of National Association of Catering Executives!  It's really an awesome group of the best in wedding and event professionals in Tampa Bay.  This month was at the Crowne Plaza Westshore. The group of friendors below worked so hard to create the ambiance for the meeting and it looked amazing.  I especially love the unique bamboo chairs, gold linen overlays, black chandelier, and of course the pumpkin dessert:-)  Anna, the founder of Marry Me Tampa Bay gave a great presentation on the power of blogging to build your brand. Great job Anna and to all who put it together we so enjoyed it!

NACE @ Hilton Clearwater Beach

All of us event professional work hard but we also love to have fun!  We are members of National Association of Catering Executives and both attended and photographed this month's meeting:-) It was a super fun team building event where each team had to build an actual boat and sail it! It was super casual, tropical themed, with smoothies, amazing appetizers, and I have to say the cake was off the chain.  Corey, from Corey's bakery was introducing a new spin on wedding cake, was a tiered "cake" with chocolate chip cookie layers.  In between there was chocolate fudge brownie with dark fudge icing, topped with rich dark amaretto chocolate ganache icing.  It was to die for! Such a fun evening with the best in our industry!
