Meet the people behind A&B that make all the magic happen! Our blog series, “5 Questions with…” introduces our team of event experts. Today’s post features Jen Camarador. Jen started working at A&B in the spring of 2014. She has a wealth of industry experience, having worked and volunteered with organizations such as the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden, The BMW Store and JDRF.
What does your typical workday look like?
We are such a tight-knit group, so we really work as a team and help each other out where and when we can. We process incoming orders, help clients out via phone, email or in person and anything in-between. From data entry to following up on quotes and orders, and even prettying up the showroom, there is always something to do. I love keeping busy and time just flies!
What are some of your favourite events that you have worked on?
I really enjoy creating table designs for wedding shows, as it is also a chance to meet our clients and vendors across the industry.
I also volunteer with JDRF on their annual Rockin’ for Research Gala. Last year’s theme was Venetian Masquerade and they had volunteers dressed in masks and gowns. It is a lot of fun and gratifying to know it is for a great cause.
What are some new rental items that you are coveting right now?
I am a sucker for anything pretty and pink, so I have fallen very much in love with the Blush Sequin Linen and hope to see more colours in the sequin soon.
Finish this sentence. They key to a successful event is…
…making memorable moments by adding personal touches.
If you had an unlimited budget to plan the ultimate event of your dreams, what kind of party would you throw?
Being a part of the wedding industry and working on wedding shows, I would definitely want to plan my dream wedding (call me a hopeless romantic!). I have come across so many talented people in this industry, with so many great ideas, how can a girl not dream? Plus, it is not just a day for me, but a day I can celebrate with the people I love most. I have not narrowed down on a theme yet, but I envision lots of flowers, good food and a large variety of desserts!
