Having been part of The Source – a unique directory of specifically selected brands and designers who can help with the planning of any event – for less than a year we were excited to take part in The Source Live 2018 held at The Apartment, The Hoxton Hotel, Holburn.
According to its creators, Talya Zysblat and Aron Schlagman, they set up The Source out of the frustration their friends and clients were encountering whilst trying to find inspiration and especially event suppliers.
As they say “most of the directories out there were nothing more that long lists of meaningless names and numbers – not very inspiring and certainly not helpful!”
As you can imagine this was no traditional wedding show. “Home away from home” was the theme. Talya and Aaron’s idea for every brand taking part was to get as creative as possible to ensure a real hands on interactive show for every guest.
Being based in the dining room meant we could showcase some of our wedding and celebration cakes, but also layout a “painting cookies” station. This worked fantastically well as we could demonstrate our work as well as sit one to one with interested guests and show them how to paint their own cookie. Since attending classes with The Chocolate Strawberry last year we are addicted to edible painting…Erica even hand painted some of our cake pops!
