Hello, my name is Michele Foust and I live in a small city northeast of Dallas. I am currently working for a large specialty chemical company as the Global Supply Chain Deliver Operational Excellence, Senior Manager. In this role, I manage strategic projects, mergers and acquisitions, training and process governance. My goal for 2020 is to open my own event planning company, specializing in unique themed events.
I have really enjoyed the first 2 weeks of this course because I've already learned so much on the concepts of planning an event as well as the activities needed to open a new business.
The concept below is for a Halloween themed wedding for Audrey and Tom. Audrey is the owner of Yummy Cakes Cupcake Shop and Tom is the Director of Marketing at Toyota. They met at a friend's Halloween party and wanted to celebrate their wedding with all the elements of Halloween and the corresponding fall colors. The bride wanted to be "non-traditional" and use lots of black in the wedding attire and the atmosphere. Her "must have" is a black wedding dress! The staff at Audrey's cupcake shop will be making the cupcakes as their gift to the couple. The couple wanted to have lots of photo op stations at the reception and wanted to give their guests their fall favorite, a cararmel apple, as a thank you for celebrating with them on their special day.
