We had a blast hosting the Minnesota M+E Best of 2019 readers' choice awards last night at the Lumber Exchange Event Center. Hopefully you were there celebrating with us!
Although there were no puppies this year due to a puppy shortage (which is, ultimately, a very good thing!), Discover St. Louis Park instead sponsored Uber rides home for guests (meaning guests could enjoy the open bar a little more freely).
Thanks to Mall of America, the premier sponsor, we had some fun experiences for guests. Tiffany Rose Goodyear scented the event, and Claire Ward Illustrations did live illustrations for anyone who was lucky enough to get a slot. My husband and I just adore the illustration Claire did for us (pictured)—we look so fashionable! It's easily my favorite event takeaway, and something that we'll frame and keep forever.
Our other event partners included: Haute House Studio (décor and floral); DJ Don/Gen Now; North Mallow (s'more bar); Time into Pixels (photo booth); and Coppersmith Photography (click here for photos from the event photos).
