BEHIND THE SCENES
As is the way with all Lisa’s events, the entrance into the room was a beautiful red carpet, decadently lined with lit lanterns… The room itself was displayed as a high-end, luxury wedding. The stage was ornately designed with cherry trees, each table had a cherry blossom centre-piece, a flower wall for photo ops, funky lighting, high energy tunes… all blended in harmony to create such a buzz of excitement before the guests arrived. Upon stepping foot in the room, you knew it was going to be a great night!
Once again, Domaine Des Jeanne had the pleasure of hosting the Drinks Reception from 6pm, led by our Business Development Manager, Denise Douet. Our sincere thanks to our dream team: Denise’s sister, Niamh Nolan, and the Whizz Marketing Ltd duo: Jennifer Nolan and Colma Lineen (Instagram: @whizzireland – Web: www.whizz.ie) who were all a priceless addition on the night. Together, they helped us spread the word about our delicious collection of JJ wine from the Luberon in the South of France.
We arrived early to set up our display and decorated it with flowers, candles, and our superb sparkling wines: JJ Bulle Blanche, JJ Bulle Rose, JJ Prestige Rouge and JJ Esprit Rosé. The air was filled with a buzz of excitement between all the vendors as everyone prepared for the guests to arrive.
At 6pm the event kicked off and Lisa personally greeted over 300 glamorous ladies at the entrance. All the guests enjoyed a complimentary glass from our fabulous collection, followed by shopping and beauty demonstrations from some of Ireland’s leading names. The guests were all seated where they enjoyed dinner, a full fashion show, and top beauty tips and demonstrations from some of Ireland’s premium brands and boutiques.
