EBE Mini Office Tour

When Emma isn’t working countless hours at an event or meeting with clients to develop the perfect event, she is busy working hard at her desk responding to emails, answering calls and brainstorming ideas for her next big event.

We recently moved our EBE offices to give us with more space, which meant Emma could create an office that was a perfect fit for her and the team. When designing her new space, there were some must-haves in order to create an inspiring environment for her.

Although Emma says there is chaos in her office, she knows where to find everything she needs. Here is a sneak peek into Emma’s office and some of the reasons behind these items!

1. A Leather Chair 
When Emma is sitting at her desk responding to her countess emails; it is important that she has a big, comfy, leather chair with great back support. This was definitely an upgrade from her previous chair and makes the long hours of sitting a little easier.

2. Photos of her kids and nature 
Of course she has to have pictures of her kids. Her kids help her relax throughout the day and provide some motivation to keep going when needed. Her office also has beautiful nature photos. “I’m not a very abstract person,” says Emma. “I enjoy the outdoors and doing things outside.”

3.  A Big Window
Because Emma loves the outdoors, a huge window by her desk was a MUST in the new office. She loves working by a window and being by the natural light, which is a change from the old office. “We had a window in the old office but it wasn’t my own office. We shared an office between all the employees.”

4. A Huge Calendar
Over the years, we have tried many methods of organizing our schedules. The best method that we have found is a HUGE calendar that is hung right outside Emma’s office. “I love seeing everything on paper. I need to see the big picture,” says Emma. It helps everyone on the EBE team stay on track with all the meetings and events we have planned for the month.

5. The Overall Aesthetic 
The colour scheme in Emma’s office is the colours of the brand – grey, white, silver, and gold. “It is important to remind me of what I am working for,” says Emma. The colours have evolved since she first started Events by Emma. The dominant colour used to be a hot pink, so you will still find some hot pink items everywhere in the office.

Concordia Hospital Foundation Gala 2014

It’s not everyday we get to hang out with a Olympic Gold Medalist.

At the Concordia Foundation’s 31st Annual Gala Dinner “Celebrating Body, Mind & Soul,” we had the great pleasure to put together a beautiful and FUN event for Team Jennifer Jones, where Ms. Jones was honoured with the 2014 Martin Bergen Award.

To make sure the team felt at home, we installed a customized curling rink on the second floor of the Delta Winnipeg for guests to enjoy while snapping a photo with Team Jennifer Jones (you can see our photo with the Olympic Gold Medalists further down).

Another great gala during another great gala season. As always, we can’t wait until next year!

Winnipeg’s 8th Annual All That Glitters Gala

When meeting with our clients, one of our favourite things to hear at the beginning of the planning process is: we want to do a theme!

We can go on and on about the benefits and appeal of themed events, and if you’re interested in learning more about them, we even covered Five Steps to Master Your Themed Event in May’s e-newsletter.

To give you an idea about how FUN and creative themed events can be, check out the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of Canada Gala, where we threw a “Retro Rockin’ Party” this spring at the RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg.

A few of our favourite details from this event have to be the dozens of records we hanged over the dance floor, the customized pop labels and of course, the jukebox!

To add some fun, we also had the Winnipeg roller derby team SuckerPunch skating around during cocktail hour giving out pop bottles to guests, which created the nostalgic vintage diner experience!

Vendor Spotlight: Planned Perfectly

While planning her own wedding, Kylee quickly picked up on the need of specialty linens in Winnipeg. With ambition and hard work, she took the entrepreneurial leap and established Planned Perfectly in 2006. From a humble beginning in her basement, Kylee has moved her company to a 6000 sq ft warehouse and has quickly grown into one of Winnipeg’s leading linen suppliers.

“We’ve worked side-by-side Kylee and her team on a weekly basis for years, from the early morning setups to all the late night takedowns,” says Emma Singh, Founder & CEO of Events by Emma. “They play an important and essential role in helping us bring our client’s visions to reality.”

In the past year, Planned Perfectly worked on over 200 events, including weddings, non-profit fundraisers, conferences and corporate affairs. Their vast selection of colours, styles and textured linens will appeal to any bride or event organizer. On top of specialty table linens, Planned Perfectly also offers their clients draping, napkins, chiavari chairs and charger rentals to help them with their event needs.

We asked Staci from Planned Perfectly:
1. Why are linens and draping important to an event?
Linens and draping can change the entire vibe and look of a room and make it into an entirely different space.

2. What are your favourite types of events, and why?
We enjoy every event for different reasons, but we love weddings to see each couple’s ideas and colours transform their venue.

3. Any exciting linen trends this year we should watch out for?
This year is all about the sequins and gold touches. We have also had a huge success with our natural linen line opposed to the traditional satin and, in the more recent years, textured table clothes (e.g. our crinkle series).

4. What are you favourite things about working with Events by Emma?
We enjoy working with EBE because of because of their creativity and they always have such great energy!
