Woo-hoo! Premier Baby Concierge founder, Shannon Choe, has been named "Best Person To Know When You're Expecting" by Main Line Today magazine. The annual "Best of the Main Line" party was held at Drexelbrook on July 23rd and it was great!
Each winner was given a table at the "Best of" event, which is a great opportunity for the winning businesses to showcase their products or services, and in the case of a young business like Premier Baby Concierge, to let people know we're here and what we offer !
I thought a lot about how to decorate the PBC table in order to communicate what we do in a "snap shot," as well as to draw people to stop by! We went with a Baby Shower theme, which worked on many levels, not the least of which was that it allowed me to offer sweet little cupcakes to passers-by ("Ha, ha!- gotcha!"). Granted, there was so much amazing food to sample, some were too full in the moment they passed, and had to come back later. Surprisingly, they did- and a couple of people even asked to bring a few home to their kids. (Wonderful mini cupcakes and adorable mini-cake, provided by PBC shower cake source, Amy Hetrick of Cakewalk .)
I can't tell you how many people came over to our table because they just had to touch and ask about the the Baby Bunch products decorating the table!!! I'm thrilled to have reached out to this local company that makes these practical, attractive, "sure to be the hit of the baby shower," flower gift "Bouquets" made of layette pieces! Everyone marveled at the idea and just loved them! The Baby Bunch also sent an additional bouquet to donate to the silent auction, along with our Premier Baby Concierge gift certificate, (The 2009 party beneficiaries were Women's Resource Center , Home of the Sparrow and Mommy's Light), as well as the cutest "Lollipop" made of a baby onesie- also at attention-grabber! I just love these- all Baby Bunch products are great ideas and such awesome quality!
Another hit (as long as they lasted!) were the shower favors made of Lifesaver mint candies to look like pacifiers. Can't believe I didn't get a photo to include here before they disappeared! These make a cute and inexpensive shower favor. (PBC plug: This is just a sampling of our fabulous ideas for unique favors, gifts, decor, and activities, so if you or someone you know is in need of help planning, organizing and/or executing a baby shower or other family event, you know who to call!)
Thanks to my fabulous PR rep, Robyn Axner-Davis at Furman Communications, who I largely credit for the "buzz" around Premier Baby Concierge and Premier Sitter Services! Thanks to the folks at Main Line Today for the honor and a fun night!
Thanks also to my family and friends who always support me and PBC, and who, for this event, helped assemble shower favors, schlep my stuff, and watch my three kids while I partied- Oh, I mean, worked!
