Vendor Spotlight | Chair Flair Linnen Rentals & Event Decor
Over the last couple years I have gotten to know Shannon the owner of Chair Flair & Event Core. She is defiantly a power house in the Calgary wedding vendor community. From linen rentals, Chiavari chairs, to dreaming up insanely beautiful draping Shannon and her team do it all! She has also be given multiple awards for her business and each and every one of them are so well deserved. As one of the busiest (if not the busiest), hard working and crazy talented ladies I know I am honoured to call her a friend and colleague. A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of sitting down with her and asking her a little more about herself as well as her business. Check out all that she had to say:
1. How long have you been in business?
Started in 2006 when I was 23
2. What made you get into your career?
I have 2 degrees, 1 in Journalism and the 2nd in Communications and Marketing. I was working at a golf course as the Communications and Marketing Director. We had a hard time finding someone to book events etc. so I offered to do it until we found someone. I fell in love with events and working with couples to make their special day come to life. The first year I took the sales from 1.2 million to 3.5 million. I saw a need for a decor company who offered full set up so I took my savings and purchased a modest inventory. I ran everything out of my basement and did it all on my own. I did just over 30 weddings my first year and then those people told people and the second year I did just over 50 weddings. I didn’t even have a website at the time. I decided after the second season to get a website and try my first wedding show and I haven’t looked back since. I retired (crazy to say!) from the golf course after 13 years after I had my second baby and decided to do Chair Flair full time. I opened up my first showroom in 2009 and now do over 500 events a year.
