IT Implementation Period Preparing for the Festival

What an exciting way to celebrate Valentines Day! The event takes place February 10th, 2018 Knoxville, TN (East Tennessee). Excited to be apart of this event and we look forward to seeing the beautiful sites that come with this venue. Anyone unfamiliar with the venue should note this is being held at Knoxville Botanical Garden & Arboretum.

Our Table Ideas

When business’s decide to book a vendor slot for any festival or event there is always a great deal of planning and patience needed. We set out with a goal to make the best visual table for the lowest price possible which is usually the goal for most startups. Building our demo table completely out of Dollar Tree so that we could maintain low cost while still getting a Valentines Day explosion! Events take place no matter the location or the theme usually the most visually appealing table will gather the largest groups. In our case the table with the “best product”.

Photo Booth Surprises!

Creating a Photo Booth for the event to help make extra money was fun and challenging. My biggest fear is that our photo booth will be a total flop and no one will want pictures done for Valentines Day. Travis and I built custom props for guest to hold up during their pictures, something fun and cute for the day.  When it came time to practice our setup and lighting our girls were first on the scene.  They instantly wanted to start posing and taking photos.

Valentines Day Wine or Chocolate ?

Will the host of the event did ask vendors to either supply wine or chocolate samples. We went with chocolate since we don’t have a license to sell liquor. We made chocolate covered pretzels for samples, they turned out wonderful.  Next I decided to make a large amount of chocolate heart suckers with cute faces to sell as one of the main items.  Below I added some photos of our preparation for our Valentines Day event.

In Conclusion

Check out our other post to see how the event went.  Hopefully we can create a chart to show which products did the best at our booth and some kind of data grab for a visual demonstration. As of today which is 2/1/2018 2:51 am we believe our biggest profit is going to lay with our showcase product the Magic Mirror, and the custom orders we receive that day from people and possibly other vendors.
