If you are coming down from a Sparkle with OIP high, well so are we! What a day we had with you Brisbane, such positive and friendly vibes. The attendees got amongst it at the gorgeous luxury hotel Capri by Fraser and our Brisy vendors went above and beyond. All up it was another successful Sparkle with OIP!
To recap on the bones of what Sparkle is all about – it is a 1 day event that treats the senses. It’s inspirational, whether it be treating your mind, self confidence, nutrition or making you feel great. Sparkle touched on all of these. Relax and retreat whilst being pampered and indulged. It is the perfect balance of glamour and wellness.
We began our morning with Relax and Reflect, our attendees checked in and was welcomed with their Sparkle gift bag. We had DJ Helen Clancy from Red Seven Group spinning the Sparkly tunes all day , Shani from Keepsake Photobooth was capturing the fun and Charlotte from Pixie Dust Calligraphy was creating some gorgeous live calligraphy take homes for attendees.
Everyone headed in, got settled and began their Pilates class with Barre Body. Hayley created the right mood and head space for everyone even if it was their first time trying Pilates.
Luckily we worked up an appetite and were ready for Nourish. Lots of healthy and tasty options to choose from, Jaz from Heart to Harvest created the most gorgeous grazing table full of vegan and gluten free options. Almost too pretty to eat!
We created a delicious pasta bar for Vetta Smart Pasta! They showcased their spaghetti, styled with gorgeous vegetarian sauces and edible flowers. Vetta Smart Pasta is twice the protein with 25% less carbs, perfect if you want to eat pasta all the time!
For all the Brisbane sweet tooths out there (including us) we did not forget you. Byron Bay Cookie Company had the cutest cart filled with their most popular cookies! Nodo Donuts also baked and delivered their fresh and healthy donuts, and yes we did say ‘healthy donuts!’
Coming off the back of a food coma we were awakened and Inspired by none other than our guest speaker The Queen of Confidence, Erika Cramer! She taught us to be who the f*ck you are and FWOT! She spoke about perfection in social media and how that can affect us as well as an epic Q&A.
Next was our Move section. Jazzercise Brisbane South brought an army of ripped and energised ladies ready to get us hot and sweaty. To cool down after our class we had Karen from Get Lick’d Ice Blocks handing out her tasty handmade ice pops.
To finish off Sparkle with OIP we had our Happy Hour with Little Rum Runner. Sebastian was pouring the bubbles and ice tea. To complement our drinks we had a stunning dessert table featuring 5 of the top Brisbane bakers: The Sweet Coconut Au (red), There Must Be Cake (white) Petal and Peach (pink) Wild Child Cakes (dark pink) and Macarons by Monika (blush pink) . Each baker created a feature cake complimented by matching mini desserts.
Not to forget our amazing styling partners who helped bring our vision to life: furniture from Honey Tub Event Hire, balloons and foil curtain backdrop from The Petal Prop Co, hanging streamers from Pinata Party Co, signage from Linen and Wove and drink stirrers and decals from The Sticker Mob.
Each sparkly attendee was lucky enough to take home an epic goodie bag filled with delicious treats and vouchers. In each bag there was muesli from Carmans, tropical mango and passionfruit cookie from Byron Bay Cookie Company, spaghetti from Vetta Smart Pasta, lip stick from Stefan Hair, hair treatment from Ecococo, sleepwear voucher from Modern Romantique, handmade earrings from Clay It By Ear and a class voucher from Barre Body.
Such a great day, filled with amazing positive women!
