What a night!
On Wednesday evening I launched my design brand TRÍONA and online shop at The Driftwood restaurant in Rosses Point, Co. Sligo. It was the perfect venue and setting for my launch party. This beautiful space has such a welcoming and relaxed vibe, frizzante on tap and decor that is sans pareil. I still can't believe the turnout - almost 100 people at one point.
I got a little overwhelmed and teary-eyed when I saw my mum walk in. She was beaming. She may have contacted just about everyone she knows living locally from her literary ladies at book (wine) club to her work colleagues... as well as every contact in Dad's phone. Well, I think she got as far as D anyway. Dad reckons I should have another launch next week for E, F and G. Ah, you can't beat a Daddy joke!
If you didn't hear me say it before, I want to thank everyone who came out to support me, and of course to those of you who couldn't make it, thanks for your well wishes, flowers and cards. I haven't had a chance to respond to everyone's messages, calls and mails, but I will!
The Driftwood very kindly served frizzante and canapés to all our guests. I was in good hands and it was so reassuring to see all the happy faces. For the very first time ever, I wasn't too nervous speaking in public - I was amongst friends and well wishers and it was my time.
To explain how my Silver Linings Collection came about, I gave a presentation about my blogging journey and revealed my brand new website and shop www.bytriona.com. I talked through each product briefly and had a selection of my designs on display. I also thanked everyone that helped me realise this dream over the past year. To celebrate the launch, use the discount code #SILVERLININGS to get 10% off until November 1st.
Thanks again for your encouragement and positive response. Thanks to everyone who purchased on the night, placed orders and expressed an interest in my designs.
Here's to many more creative endeavours and future collaborations. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or follow my journey on social @bytriona.
A very happy T xo
