With 2017 comes an exciting new expansion to our Alexandria Catherine Events team... an internship program! We are pleased to welcome our first intern of 2017, Molly.
"When looking up the definition of social butterfly, you will see my picture right there. I study Communications dual focus in Public Relations and Journalism at Immaculata University. I have three different jobs - I'm a waitress, a coach, and a Student-Ambassador all while I played volleyball for four years as IU and while involved in multiple clubs and organizations. As a Student-Athlete, I had to learn the importance of organization, time-management, and teamwork. While not working, studying or eating, I love to hang out with friends or cuddle up with my two dogs watching the latest shows on Netflix.
The entire world of Event Planning drew my attention, because not every day or every event is the same (I'm not one to work behind a desk all day). Traveling and meeting new people excites me as well as the planning behind every event. Every time my mom would host a neighborhood party, I'd be making lists with her, running around the house and creating scenery to flow with the theme. I have worked in the hospitality business for almost four years and my favorite job was working events at the Chester Valley Golf Club. I loved knowing I helped set up the tables and chairs, put up decorations, or even checking on guests to ensure they are having a great time".
Molly, we're thrilled to have you joining us!
For Small Business Saturday, Alexandria Catherine Events visited Flowers by Jena Paige in Downingtown, PA to set up a holiday-themed mimosa bar. Here, you'll find two recipes that we used so that you can recreate these simple cocktails at your holiday party this year. Be sure to tag us on Instagram (@alexandriacevents) if you do so that we can see your festivities!
Champagne (we recommend Brut - keeps the drink from being too sweet)
Pour champagne into a champagne flute about halfway. Fill the remainder of the glass with cranberry juice and garnish with a couple of frozen cranberries (these also keep the drink chilled!).
Amaretto Ginger Mimosa
Pour champagne into a champagne coupe (we love this style of glassware for a vintage feel!). Fill the glass with 1/4 amaretto, 2/4 champagne and 1/4 ginger ale. Garnish with frozen cranberries.
Want to try a twist on this? Before adding any liquid to the glasses, dip the rims in vanilla and then a cinnamon/sugar mixture for more of a gingerbread-flavor. YUM!
