So last night I had the privilege of meeting Hawaii event designer and coordinator Evonne Wong from Events by Evonne who happened to be in the Bay Area for a few days. Together with Jewel of Savadelis Films and Viola from Chewing the Cud we had a great time meeting up at the Hotel Sofitel for drinks.
I don't know if you recall but a while back Evonne saw a blog post I did about a pink flower cake topper and posted in the comments of that post that she wanted to order one as a desk ornament for herself. She requested green orchids and brown dragonflies which I delivered to her last evening.
Immediately I thought of Dianne Phillip's flowers from DK Designs. Her beautiful, lightweight, clay flowers would be the perfect accompaniment to my little dragonflies. I contacted Dianne and she created the three orchids for me. I added several beaded leaves to fill in the tiny gaps between the flowers and mounted the entire piece on a small, lucite stand. The topper can be removed if Evonne ever wants to use it on a cake!

Evonne brought each of us a gift bag from Hawaii with little treats and yummy smelling soap... The top bar here was a special gift for my dog Kitai! How did she know he needed a bath this week?
It was such a pleasure meeting Evonne. As soon as we saw each other we both commented that we looked just like our Facebook pictures. LOL It was so fun getting to know her in person and very rewarding when she told me that it was the 6 post per month requirement to be listed in Best Wedding Blogs that turned her into one of the most prolific bloggers I know! I'm very much looking forward to going to Hawaii sometime to hang out with Evonne. She may even stir up some wedding industry networking there like we have here in California. If she does I'd love to attend her first event.
