Bliss & Bespoke 2018 at The Cottages!

It’s that time again! We are thrilled to tell you all about our fifth Bliss & Bespoke retreat, and I know we always say this, but we’ve got that feeling again that this is going to be the best retreat yet! With every retreat, we learn a little more about what you guys need, what inspires you, what drives you, and how we can best create a community that will see you beyond these four days!

This year, our inspiration began with our home base – an incredible property located along the edge of the Charleston harbor. As you arrive, you’ll find the most darling pastel colored cottages all in a row, complete with wide screen porches, overlooking a lush green lawn, adirondacks, a private beach, and the beloved steeples of the historic Charleston skyline across the harbor. Of course, while we’ll make plenty of time to enjoy that view and the beautiful accommodations found at the Cottages, we’ll also take you to explore downtown Charleston and a couple of surprise destinations, too!

Upon arrival, we’ll enjoy cocktails and mingling at the Clubhouse before settling in for a bit to your cottage. Then we’ll take a ferry across the harbor to downtown Charleston, where we’ll be greeted by pedicabs to escort us to our final dinner destination for an amazing meal among new friends and our warmest welcome to Charleston!

Over the next few days, we’ll spend time learning from both our speakers and one another! We’ve carefully chosen this year’s fantastic team of speakers to create an atmosphere of transparency as we all dig in together and tackle the tough issues. Each of these women have found tremendous success in their own unique ways, and they are ready to openly and honestly share with you the roads they’ve taken and the obstacles and milestones they’ve met along the way. Beyond the classroom, we’ve incorporated time for small breakout peer groups where you’ll have the chance to openly swap ideas, solutions and sources with other planners and designers outside of your market. While this always happens a bit naturally amongst our attendees, we are excited about carving out intentional, dedicated time to make this happen!

Oh, and we have a brand new addition to this year’ itinerary – a cooking class with Executive Chef Steve Boyer of Cru Catering – a long time Bliss and Charleston favorite! Not only will we enjoy an interactive cooking/dining experience, but the team at Cru will be sharing their catering expertise with us – dishing on the things they wished every planner knew, all in the spirit of creating better partnerships between two vital elements of a successful event!

All in all, we just know you’re going to LOVE Bliss & Bespoke 2018! See you there!!!

Counting down to Bliss…
