Hi. My name is Charmaine. It's been almost a year since I planned my last meeting.
Last night I attendede a little gala (industry event) hosted by MPI. (Meeting Planners International). Okay, so it wasn't a GALA per se. It was an event at the Discovery Museum in Santa Ana with a silent auction.
It was a remember-youth theme. Tray-passed hors d'eouvres were "kid" inspired including shot glasses filled with ketchup and 5 french fries poking up like sticks, grilled cheese triangles, mini-corn dogs, baby sliders. It was a cute idea that should have remained "an idea".
I appreciated going along with my new work colleague, the lovely, the heavenly (in more ways then one) Kristin. We worked together formerly. Watching her, having blossomed into a gifted planner, was a real treat. I knew her when she was just a grasshopper in the crazy world of event planning. I felt like a proud mama.
After the event we skipped off to The Geisha House. It was a dissappointment. But when a strolling table bores you...you're obviously hard to impress!
