I absolutely love creating memorable experiences through events. Word of mouth has always been one of my favorite marketing tools. My events have always helped me walk the walk & talk the talk as I built a reputation for my creativity and influence. Collaborating with local venues was what gave me the power to bring these events to life. Here are a few worth mentioning!
Ormond Restaurant Week My little town had so many awesome restaurants that weren't really being celebrated. With over 15 years in hospitality... I wanted to create a chance for restaurants, service industry professionals and locals to showcase their passion for food - during the slow time of year. It proved to be very beneficial for participating restaurants. Read the feature in Ormond Beach Observer here. 2015/2016/2017 in Ormond Beach, various locations. In 2017, we also included Brew Tours stopping at local breweries and restaurants!
Yoga Flash Mob
Full Moon Party
Full Moon Yoga Flash Mob 2019 - at Hard Rock Hotel Daytona Beach with Yoga taught by Kelli Durrance and Live Art by local artist, Thays Franca benefiting Light The Way - an organization assisting local cancer patients undergoing chemo treatment.
Chriskindlmarkt & Food Truck Rally - inspired by a trip to Helen, Ga. I brought a traditional German Christmas Market to Ormond Brewing Company. We packed the house with local vendors, food trucks and families. December 2018, June 2019 & December 2019. Check out a few of our vendors here.
Volusia Dining Days 2018 & 2019 - my event partners and I decided to expand Ormond Restaurant Week to Volusia County. This event held the same structure as ORW and included some previous participants as well as opened up opportunities for other locally owned restaurants to participate in New Smyrna Beach, Port Orange, Holly Hill, Daytona & Ormond Beach. Again, a very successful event for local restaurants and a treat for locals!
Workshops 2018 - This was the year that BLOOM had an office! I was so excited to share the space as a communal workspace for my team and guests. We hosted a few fun events as well as hosted Odyssey Travel's Advisor Course - and I took it too! We hosted a Vision Board Workshop & Self Love Revolution course in collaboration with local Author, Teacher and Copywriter Lea D'Loughy.
