Trade Show Weekend

On April 17-19, I had the opportunity to attend the annual CKNL Trade Show in Fort St. John. It was the first time I attended and I had a wonderful time. I shared a booth with my friend Tammy from TLS Wedding Designs. She is an amazing decorator and event planner. She was the brains behind decorating our booth, and, well, I was the "holder" of this and that while she put the decorations up. In fact, our booth won Honorable Mention for Best Decorated Booth. We both had a wonderful time and complimented each other well. We are already planning our booth for next year, BIGGER and BETTER.

We had lots of visitors who stopped by and visited our booth. Around 15,000 people attended the fair that weekend. I made over 1100 cupcakes for sampling and over 75% of them were gone by the end of the weekend. It was also neat to meet so many vendors from the community and also those who attended from Alberta and to do some networking. I even got the chance to do some Father's Day shopping. Sorry, can't say, since my hubby likes to "surf" and do some sneaking.

I want to say THANK YOU to all those who came by and visited our booth and had a chance to have a cupcake. I really enjoyed meeting and talking with you and I look forward to working with you in the future.
