Women's Club of Raleigh
3300 Woman's Club Drive
Raleigh, NC


Wedding season is upon us!  That means we need to be at the top of our game to make sure we are giving our clients the best service possible.  At this team-building meeting, we will brush up on our management skills including budgets, working within a theme, table design, "playing nice in the sandbox" (we all need trusted vendors to help us create gorgeous and successful events!), time lines and more.

Our fabulous NACE floral partners will walk us through some simple floral designs and talk to us about what techniques they use to make our events stand out as award-winning masterpieces!  Speaking of awards, we will be giving prizes to the teams that display the best management and design skills.


You will not want to miss this interactive event!  It will be unlike any other!
