PS Launch Party

Our Launch Party was June 8th at the Art Factory in Paterson, New Jersey. I was overly ambitious and produced a two look photo shoot for our Fall Campaign in addition to this Launch Party. I WILL NEVER DO THIS AGAIN! I was dead on my feet. In spite of this, everything looked amazing and the four vendors who rocked their tablescapes made my job a little easier.

A huge shout out to Digna of Digna Toledo Photography for shooting both the photo shoot and the party. Natasha of the Flair Factor, Chicona of Malani Signature Events, and Juanita of Willow & East THANK YOU so very much for participating. You all did an exceptional job highlighting our chairs. Also, thanks to Jennifer of Sweet Lil Sweets for donating those super tasty custom cookies as party favors. Each of these ladies went above and beyond and I truly appreciate all that they did in supporting Petite Seats.

A super duper shout out to my partner in crime and sounding board, my little sister Olesha of Oh Experience Photography for being on board from day one and supporting me as always.

Could not have done this without any of these women. Finding like minded business conscious women is a challenge, I've been fortunate to work with some kick a%? ladies who are true BOSSes.

I couldn't finish this post without publicly acknowledging my brother-in-law and his family for truly being my go to people the day of. They were movers, haulers, personal shoppers, and bartenders . . . All without a fuss. Love you guys. My hubby was also instrumental in me maintaining my sanity during the planning of the shoot and launch. He truly took Daddy Day Care to the heart and even wore our Petite Seats t-shirt in support. Gotta love the guy!

In route to us . . .

In route to us . . .

Right as I arrived home a large truck pulled in behind me. The chairs had arrived. The shipping boxes (as shown above) looked like they had been through a scuffle and lost. Nevertheless, the chairs were package so well all 30 chairs arrived without a scratch. We are super excited to embark on this new business journey. We hope to share our experiences as business owners and provide the latest trends in children's parties.

Planning our Petite Seats STYLED Shoot

In a month we will be shooting our promotional video and photography spread for Petite Seats. I've been on Pinterest pinning away. I plan to produce two to three styled vignettes to highlight our chair designs and accessories. Between now and April 20th I will be sharing all the behind the scenes adventures and inspiration boards for the shoot. Enjoy!

Petite Seat Launch Party: Phase One

For several days we lamented over an ideal location for an official launch party for the Petite Seats brand. We wanted a location that was easily accessible from NYC and northern New Jersey and had a lofty feel. The venue also had to be trendy and allow for an all day rental. We found it! The Art Factory in Paterson, New Jersey. 

The International Gallery

We secured the venue and now are on the hunt for sponsors to assist us with the execution of the event. We envisioned five to six tablescapes, designed and installed, by local event designers highlighting our chairs and their unique designs. If you are interested in creating an over-the-top children's themed tablescape in exchange for complimentary use of Petite Seats please email us at rent@petiteseatsnj.com 

 

Digna Toledo Photography has committed to shoot our Petite Seats launch party . Check out her amazing photos here at her newly created blog.
