Villa Parker Tasting

Blog ASOLLast Wednesday February 24th we hosted a tasting event for potential brides at the Villa Parker in Parker, Colorado.  Set up the way you might see at a wedding showcase, this tasting allowed guests to mingle with various vendors such as JA Special Events, Mares Video Production, Statice Floral, Event Rents, A & I Photography, Simply Entertainment and Sir Chocolate. 

Intimacy, however, set this evening apart from your typical wedding showcase.  Not only were we able to serve a full cocktail hour and dinner to a smaller crowd of guests, but we also mingled in a non-forecful environment filled with food, drinks and fun.  We are currently in the midst of wedding show season,  and this particular format served as a lovely break from the usual show.  Each vendor had the opportunity to speak in front of the group and educate the guests on the wedding planning process to help make the next few months exciting rather than daunting.

 A Spice of Life is looking forward to creating more intimate opportunities to interact with people starting to plan; whether for a wedding, social or corporate occasion.  We are pleased that the Villa Parker invited us to host this tasting and want to thank everyone involved!
