Minute Events Catering - Stole The Trunk Show!

Steven Wilson is the owner and head chef at Minute Events Catering. Minute Events was the exclusive caterer for the Fezelry Jewelry Designs Trunk Show and we are thrilled to say he stole the show! I must say I should have seen it coming. During our consultation I explained our event would be hosted at a clothing boutique and the guests would be handling jewelry. So we had some special needs, no fire, no messy foods, no foods that could stain clothing ... no, no, no! I truly thought after hearing my long list of what not to cook he would tell me where to go! Thankfully I was wrong! Steve turned my list of no into a list of yum! He ran off an even larger laundry list of what he could serve the guests at our event, needless to say I was very impressed. He sent me a few final menu options, we signed off, and it was a go. 
The day of our trunk show Steven arrived early and set up quickly, the display of food offered was simply beautiful. Our guests were served an array of wonderful  hors d'oeuvres including glazed ham on black pepper and bleu cheese bread, tomato bruschetta with fresh basil, tarragon chicken salad on vegetable crackers, chicken caesar salad crisps, and  fresh fruit kabobs drizzled with honey and fresh mint leaves (ahhhhmazing!) Minute Events was the star of the event! Everyone raved about the delicious cuisine and went back for seconds, thirds, fourths! Long after the event ended guests were still talking about the amazing treats Minute Events Catering had provided during our event.

Steven Wilson made quite the impression, his amazing fare even caught the attention of  Chrissy Skudera  a DC Restaurant Examiner with Examiner.com she was so impressed with the cuisine she posted a wonderful article about it!  Local catering company wows trunk show in National Harbor

Congratulations Steven and thank you for bringing your flare for fabulous fresh foods and contagious positive energy to our event! Many people asked two questions, when is the next Trunk Show and will Minute Events Catering be there? The answers...very soon and absolutely YES! We look forward to working with Minute Events Catering for many events to come!

If you want show stopping and stealing cuisine at your next event contact Steve Wilson at Minute Events Catering...tell him We sent you! Minute Events Catering: Office: (301) 278-5435 Cell: (240) 838-4454

6 Ways to Organize Your Jewelry

I'm so excited to announce we have a guest blogger...Deb Lee! Deb is a Certified Professional Organizer® and the founder of D. Allison Lee LLC. I'm not ashamed to admit I am a major groupie and stalk her blog Organize to Revitalize daily! There you can find tips on everything from saving time to saving money from organizing receipts to organizing your lists and even cleaning your refrigerator, you name it Deb has an organizational solution for it! And now she is sharing her awesome organizing how to with us! Fellow jewelry designers and jewelry junkies Deb has some great solutions for keeping all your pretty jewels in order in her post 6 Ways to Organize Your Jewelry.

6 Ways to Organize Your Jewelry
Deb Lee, Certified Professional Organizer®

Organizing anything takes a little forethought. When you have to organize an inventory of items that range from large and fabulous to elegant and teeny tiny, you may have to get a little creative.  If you love jewelry or make them, like our Ms. Haynes does, here are a few tips for you.

Inventory and categorize your items
Don’t buy anything! …yet.  Resist the urge to buy any organizing products. First - figure out what you will be keeping.  Once you have the number of pieces you’re going to keep, put them in categories.  Do you want to group them by type, color, size, or material?  …or perhaps your favorites or sets?
You might also have a category for broken pieces, although I would recommend that you pitch those. Yes, I’m putting my organizer foot down! On a serious note, if part of your plan is jewelry repair, you should definitely have a category for that.

Think about your space
Consider how much storage space you have. If you have room for ten things and you have fifty, well, you have a few hard decisions to make…or, you can get super creative. =)  Use vertical space, e.g., walls and doors (inside and out). If you’ve ever been to nail salon, you’ve probably seen those acrylic nail polish organizers mounted to the wall.  They’re easy to see and you can find the polish you’re looking for. Wall mounted jewelry organizers can do the same for you.

Find the right storage product
Choose the right storage option based on the size and layout of your space, and be sure that you like it.  If you think the storage unit is ugly, you probably won’t use or keep up with it.  So, go for wild and crazy, if that’s what you like. 
Here are a couple of products that might work for you…

Earring Organizer and Jewelry Display (Necklace Holder, Jewelry Storage) | quiet ground 
This creative design is made by KikiBella. It can hold earrings, necklaces, brooches, barrettes and/or hair pins.  Use several for large volumes of jewelry. Find it on Etsy.com.


Folding Earring Screen
This organizer is great for those smaller items in your collection.  Find it on Amazon.
 Acrylic Drawer Tower Organizer
Another organizer that’s great for teeny tiny things, like rings and earrings.  Find it on Amazon.

Hanging Jewelry Organizer
If you’ve got more room in your closet than you do in your main storage space, this hanging organizer might do the trick.  You can also travel with it.  Get it on Amazon.

Powell Dakota Cheval Jewelry Wardrobe with Full-Length Mirror
This is a great unit that does double duty.  It’s a mirror on the outside and jewelry storage (all types) on the inside.  The full length mirror tilts to various angles. Get it on Amazon. Check out the over-the-door version here and smaller square wall mount unit here. Btw, I use this one myself!

BelleDangles Jewelry Organizer

Mount this organizer to the wall to hang your necklaces, dangling earrings, and bracelets in plain view. Keep jewelry boxes or trees on the shelf. Get it on Amazon.

Maintaining Balance and Sanity as a Busy Mompreneuer

Busy mom and entrepreneur, Christine Haynes, tells how she hangs on to her sanity while running a business and keeping up with her family. 

When I started my business, Fezelry Jewelry Designs, several years ago, I had no clue that I would actually work harder for myself then I ever would for other people.  Being the Owner, Designer, Vice President, Office Manager, Public Relations Department, Marketing Director, Web Designer, Photographer, Accountant, and Creative Master Mind behind my brand is both exhausting and time consuming, but it’s rewarding.   Continue Reading...
