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 Kim Co. Kim started with A&B in the summer of 2014. Working during busy weekend hours, Kim is used to being quick on her feet.
What does your typical workday look like?
Saturdays are unpredictable! A tall Blonde roast from Starbucks sets me up for a day of last-minute order entries and event crisis management. It’s a bit of a juggling act too! With customers coming into the showroom, calling to place orders, or emailing to revise orders, Saturdays can get quite hectic.
What are some of your favourite events that you have worked on?
My sister’s Carnival-themed 18th Birthday Party was really fun to plan and host. We had DIY carnival games, popcorn, cotton candy, and live performances!
What are some new rental items that you are coveting right now?
I love our new Wheat Burlap tablecloths. Generally, I like the earthy, rustic, and natural look. Think: lots of greens and natural wood with a splash of gentle elegance.
Finish this sentence. They key to a successful event is…
Keeping your guests comfortable, fed, and their thirst quenched.
If you had an unlimited budget to plan the ultimate event of your dreams, what kind of party would you throw?
I would love to host the ultimate Halloween party. Imagine an overflowing candy bar, caramel apple decorating, freshly popped popcorn, and taps of craft beer. All of this, of course, is in preparation for a horror movie marathon.
