San Francisco Chapter

For March, we had our March Mixer at the Bluxome Winery Tasting room at Ghirardelli Square in San Francisco. It was a great success with our generous and amazing sponsors. We enjoyed wine from Bluxome Winery, savory bites from Herbs & Spices Catering, Cheese from SF's Cheese School, and sweets from Carrie Dove Catering. Our rentals were not your everyday matching dishware. We had beautiful stacks of cake platters from Julia's Cake Stand Rentals, vintage rentals from Katy Birds- she brought different wine glasses that made us all feel like we were royalty!! Kate Holtzen photographed the entire event- we have proof that everyone enjoyed the DIY floral crowns- even all the gentlemen!
Our March Mixer provided a professional fun space to network, meet new vendors and showcase the many talents of the Bay. Amanda Fein Events & Design paired the fun florals, vintage rentals, creative bites and bright linens from Napa Valley Linens with live music from Reggae Speaks, Robert Ledesma sang acoustic sets for the duration of our sunshine filled event.
We had an amazing evening with an energetic crowd. 

 

Las Vegas

 

Oh what a night February 1st was for the WIPA LV Chapter. Everyone was dressed to impress and ready for the fun evening ahead. Champagne flowed for the meet and greet which took place in the Foxtail lounge, while everyone was greeted by the past 2016 and upcoming 2017 board members. The room was dressed with lovely floral centerpieces that were just the right accent for the space. Foxtail Lounge has two large existing birdcages in the center of the room that we adorned with tall draped floral candelabras that you couldn’t help but use as your backdrop for a photo opp. Our keynote speaker Vanessa Chamberlin was energetic as she encouraged the group to be the best you can be moving into the New Year no matter what trials and tribulations your encounter in life.


After the keynote speaker; WIPA members and their guests were escorted to the Congo Ballroom. Upon arrival to the room, all the guests were greeted with big bright white marquee letters that spelled out WIPA and an interactive step and repeat to capitalize on their fancy attire and the dates they were encouraged to bring. Destinations by Design had decided to go with a light grey, ivory and lavender color scheme. Complementing the ballroom where long mirror top tables were dressed with a meandering lavender and ivory centerpiece down the center. The rounds were complete with towering crystal candelabras to add some height to the room; as the stage was treated with a candlelit glow atop large mirror striped pedestals. The dance floor was inviting to everyone to take part either by cutting a rug or enjoying the stylish grey furniture groupings lining the dance floor.


Throughout the evening guests enjoyed signature cocktails served from the cool ICE bar. The meal and service was nothing but top notch and had everyone full of enjoyment. During the meal, our 2017 board was sworn in by our WIPA National President Rrivre Davies. WIPA Las Vegas also held their first chapter award ceremony; which three awards were handed out to surprised members. The night ended with a fun upbeat dance party but not complete without our foam glow sticks!
