Okanagan Bridal Expo 2018

Read more

2018 promises to be a very busy and creative year for Blushing Pear. We’ve experienced tremendous growth since opening in 2016 and I look forward to working with all of my clients this upcoming wedding season and with local venues and vendors. Though the 2018 wedding season may seem months away, we all know that booking vendors and getting wedding plans firmed up are hugely important-especially in Kelowna, the Wedding Capital of Canada. I’ll be at Blushing Pear’s booth at the upcoming 2018 Okanagan Bridal Expo (presented by Peace of Mind Weddings) held at the Delta Grand, Kelowna on January 21, 2018, so I hope you stop by and introduce yourself! Make sure to also check out the Midsummer NIght’s Dream décor happening at Bliss Bridal’s booth, as I was very happy to contribute some décor for their enchanted woodland themed booth. I can’t wait to see the finished results and the florals supplied by Maltabella Designs!

Tickets for the expo are available to purchase in advance at The Wedding Café, Ten Fashions Bridal Boutique, Kakes by Kathie, Mission Park Flowers in Kelowna, and Victoria Lane Brides in Vernon. Tickets are $10 purchased at these vendors, or tickets can be purchased at the door for $15. As always, this bridal expo promises to be an exciting event, with a live fashion show, vendors galore, and of course the ultimate Grand Prize draw for a trip to Sandos Playacar in the Mexican Riviera.

While I am busy meeting with clients and assembling decor plans, I am eagerly looking ahead to a wonderful wedding season and I can’t wait to see you at the Bridal Expo!

Time for Wedding Expos!


Summer is fading fast! I can smell and feel the change in the air, and I can see it in the changing colors of the sky and leaves. What a summer it has been! Blushing Pear has been busy, renting out props and furniture, collaborating on photo shoots, adding to our inventory, and planning for the year ahead. The end of summer also means the end of a busy wedding season, though events continue on through the fall and winter! We are also steadily booking up for the summer of 2017- so if you’re thinking of renting vintage décor, you may want to plan ahead sooner rather than later.

Speaking of fall and winter, are you planning on attending the upcoming Wedding Expos? As a member of the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce, Blushing Pear is excited about meeting new faces and connecting with familiar faces at the Okanagan Wedding Expo happening on September 27, 2016 at Okanagan College in the Atrium. Stop by and say hello! Visit my display and pick up a brochure and a free gift!

Of course, another major wedding event will be taking over the city of Kelowna, on January 15, 2017! This will be our first time as a vendor at the Okanagan Bridal Expo and we can’t wait! Bridal fashion show, wedding vendors, everything about the wedding industry showcased under one roof! Join Blushing Pear and several other vendors at The Delta Grand Hotel this coming January!

Marketing is at the core of any successful small business. Blushing Pear has been busy since opening in February 2016. We’ve had the pleasure of working alongside several local professionals serving the wedding industry in Kelowna and the surrounding region.  Blushing Pear has helped create beautiful styled events along with a bevy of photographers, venues, cake artists, florists, make-up and hair artists and bridal salons. Catering to brides and grooms, ensuring breathtaking decor, is at the heart of what we do.

My company has been fortunate in being featured in a few editorials recently.

Be sure to pick up a copy of Okanagan Life’s Wedding Issue (August/September 2016) for a sneak peak of our elegant, country decor staged at Seven Half Diamond Ranch in Merritt.

Earlier this summer, we were featured on the cover of Bellissima Bride magazine (Issue 5/June 2016) along with a multi-page feature inside. Our breathtaking photo shoot, Beauty and the Bed, featured Kelsey Wise of Deja Vu Model Management. Gown supplied by Lillian Wild Bridal. Hair and Make-up by Amana Beauty.

Blushing Pear was thrilled to have the opportunity to style a vintage, Paris inspired bridal themed display in the windows at Bliss Bridal Salon in Kelowna. What better place to showcase wedding decor than two gorgeous windows featuring a store full of bridal gowns? Bliss indeed!

Starting a business is without a doubt a lot of work. It requires dedication, talent and passion. I’ve been extremely fortunate in choosing to start my rental and design business, Blushing Pear Vintage Rentals, in Kelowna. Why? Well not only are we living in the ‘Wedding Capital of Canada’, but I’ve discovered the local community to be enormously supportive. I’m truly grateful and very excited about the future. Following is a feature article in the In Focus/Kelowna Now, explaining my inspiration for starting this business and a bit of my background.
