Mahaffey’s January 2013 Bridal Shows: Part Two

This past Sunday, Mahaffey attended the Pink Bridal Show at the Hilton Memphis. While we did not have room to create another “mini showroom,” our event specialists did an amazing job making the most out of the space they had. Our prime location made for a busy and extremely fun afternoon. Not only were we right in the middle of all the action, but we were across from a Memphis DJ! It was hard not to break out dancing and we are sure someone caught us doing reserved dance moves during the Electric Slide. 😉 We got to visit with people we met at the Bridal Rhapsody show and introduce ourselves to new brides-to-be!

Our farm table made its way back to center stage, this time with a coral sash and coral napkins, accenting a grey and white chevron table runner. Beautiful centerpieces from Club Windward decorated the table top, creating ooh’s and aah’s from every passerby. We also showcased our newest inventory addition, whiskey barrels!

We were so happy to supply rentals to several of our partners for their booths, including the River Inn of Harbor Town, Club Windward and The Retreat at Spring Creek Ranch.

Mahaffey’s January 2013 Bridal Shows: Part One

We had an absolute blast at the Bridal Rhapsody Extravaganza earlier this month! Our event specialists did a wonderful job putting together an amazing booth, complete with several unique tablescapes, a complete lineup of our chair selection, a linen rack showcasing more than 30 tablecloths, chandeliers and more! Their hard work definitely paid off as we quite possibly had the best booth there! We aren’t biased at all. 🙂

When we weren’t chatting with the fabulous brides-to-be, we couldn’t help but walk around to visit with and admire all of our favorite vendors’ booths, and sample lots of wedding cake, cupcakes and food.

All brides, regardless of whether they won any prizes, walked away with the latest issue of Southern Bride Magazine and hopefully lots of tips and vendor information for their big day. Mahaffey had fun setting up the pipe and drape, entryway and cafe area for the show, and of course visiting with all the lovely engaged ladies.  A big thank you to our friend Alisa at Club Windward, for the beautiful centerpieces, the delicious chicken and waffles, and all of your help! Thank you also to Gigi’s cupcakes for our cupcake centerpiece (which everyone LOVED). Mahaffey was able to practice self control and not eat any until the show was…almost over.

Here are pictures of our booth in case you missed out!
