Environmentally & Socially Responsible Event Planning * Consulting * Staffing * Catering

What our clients say about us...

  • “You have extraordinary attention to detail. You took care of the little things (like the place setting utensil twine and the food platter you sent up to the girls’ room) that we didn’t even think about. We’d be able to tell future clients to feel confident that everything will be taken of with style, even the things they may not have thought of beforehand.” – John, on his wedding

The Bicycle Commons Event - Video 2!

Here is another really great video shot by another person at the Bike Clinic.  It shows a few more aspects and folks who've been involved from the very beginning.  Including me!  "Dapper". Yes.  That's me.

The Bicycle Commons - Our first 2011 Bike Clinic

Okay so I'm not posting as regularly as I should be. Half of the reason is that I'm recovering from another fantastic event. This time it me reprising my role at Volunteer Coordinator with The Bicycle Commons and our first Spring 2011 Bike Clinic hosted by the Harmony B Co-op. Check it!

There was a TON of folks involved in this project and its all shaping up nicely for the big event in June.

Here is a short list, in no particular order or preference; of some of the organizations that made this event possible!

The Bicycle Commons
Bike Sauce
Its Chez Nous
Think First
My First Wheels
Chairman Mills - Thanks KIM!
Cobs Bread - Annex You rock Emily!
Us - Simplicity Event Planning & Catering

Special thanks to Carrie for helping make Simplicity's contribution possible!

I'm in the background somewhere (thank god because I was unusually camera shy that day) with the longshoreman coat and cap. I think I'm more comfortable being in the background and I think I'm actually elated that my interview wasn't (at least I think) spliced in!
Why was I wearing a big black coat? I was soooooo bloody cold, and that wool jacket is WARM in the shade, and quite airy in the sun. Thankfully it turned out to be a fantastic day and the weather held out until Sunday. At which point it dumped rain AFTER the event, which is always a good thing!

To be honest I kinda felt that I could always do more and when the event began so smoothly and continued to go smoothly I was kinda left to futz, and just make sure that everyone got what they needed. I think I even ended up getting a bit too much sun that day. More pics to follow once I clear out my camera.

Random Update Photo

Okay so I'm still alive and kicking. Had a bit of a setback lately. (BUT then again its all part of being an entrepreneur and I usually like to keep things chipper, and I'm not as inspired to write as when the chips are down)

Anyhow. Learned a lot about several people lately, that being vendors, clients and even family. More on this later, but before I get into it. I thought I'd post a random photo of me and the staff at the very last event Simplicity did in 2010. Going through the stock of photos, this one gave me a good chuckle.

Quick man!  To your action stations!
