Where has the time gone? Just a few months ago, Brooke and I were planning the official launch event for sheKC. After pouring our hearts into this project, we knew that we wanted to give back to our AMAZING site partners, supporters and friends that have made all of this possible.
So, we decided to throw an intimate and fun party to celebrate all things sheKC! Cue the confetti and cupcakes! When we started to brainstorm what we wanted for this celebratory event, we knew that it was all about the venue. We wanted to find something in a central location, with beautiful views of Kansas City and that would feel modern, intimate and stylish all at the same time. Enter: One Light Luxury Apartments.
After touring the stunning downtown apartment building -- it is seriously our dream home -- we knew this was it. This was THE venue for our first sheKC event. The entrance to One Light is private and welcoming, the community floor felt cozy, yet modern and the views of Kansas City's downtown are unbeatable. We were SOLD. (If only we could move in ourselves!)
So, we started planning the other details. Because let's be honest, the party is all in the details. Since the views, atmosphere and style of One Light was the focus, we wanted to focus on little details that would make a big impact. At the same time, we wanted everything to be fun!
Next important thing: food! Whenever we are in the downtown area for meetings or fun, we always stop by Cosentino's Downtown Market. So, it was a no brainer to work with their incredible catering team to create the perfect menu for our guests. They seriously blew us away with their creative displays and delicious appetizers. Their catering team was easy to work with and very professional throughout the entire experience. They took our big ideas and ran with it!
Not only did they make the most beautiful appetizer display filled with fresh fruits, yummy meats and artisan cheeses, but their desserts did not disappoint! The mini cheesecakes were so good.
With food covered, we wanted to make sure our partners felt the love. We are very thankful to work with some of the best businesses and brands in Kansas City. Our launch event was an opportunity to not only celebrate sheKC, but to show our love for them! We gathered a few of our partners to join us in the fun including: Anchora Bella Boutique, Bare Med Spa, Arista Hair Solutions, HOOPLA, la-de-da boutique, Stephanie's Bridal, and Undolus.
Thank you so much to everyone that participated, supported and attended our first official sheKC event. From the bottom of our hearts, we are so thankful for each and every one of you. Thank you for reading and stay tuned for more exciting events that will be open to all of our readers soon!
