Sisters Flowers was proud to be a part of the 2009 Louie Awards for the St. Louis Chapter of ISES. Sisters is a member of this special events vendor networking group. Every year, ISES gives out awards (or Louies) to vendors who have shown excellence in their specific fields and categories.
We were also on the planning committee for the awards banquet. Sisters was able to provide all of the centerpieces for the tables. Here are some of our snapshots of the event held at the Foundry Arts Centre in St. Charles.
“Wine and Dine” was this year’s theme, so the linens and decor reflected the rich color and texture of a Tuscan winery.
We did three different centerpieces for the tables. This was a taller urn with hydrangeas, roses, hanging amaranthus, stock, and curly willow.
The tallest of the three centerpieces were these arrangements done in our silver stands with hanging votive candles.
The same flowers were used in these lower footed urns.
As members of ISES, we were asked to present the award for “Best Lighting” to a fellow vendor. Here are the presenters, Emily & Shelly.
One of the best parts of the evening is when Sisters Flowers won an award for “Best Floral Design”!!!! We submitted one of our weddings from last year (see the blogs from Nov. and Dec. ’08 entitled “Trees at the MAC” and “Dominie’s Fall Wedding”) and it was picked out of a field of other fantastic floral vendors. We were very honored to be recognized.
Here are Emily & Shelly accepting the award.
We thanked all of our awesome employees and the other vendors that helped with the event. It’s hard to think of things to say in front of a crowd!! 🙂
Thanks to ISES and all the other vendors for a great night!!
(And thanks to our husbands, Jess and John, and Emily’s daughter Jennifer for being our dates!!)
