Can we share some good vibes today? I want to know what you're celebrating right now... a birthday, anniversary, a birth? What are you grateful for? What has you feeling blessed to be exactly where you are? I'll start, today I'm celebrating my brother-in-law's birthday by toasting him with a glass of wine with dinner (I'm pretending like I haven't been having a glass of wine with dinner every night... but whatever). I'm also incredibly grateful that our household of 6 is healthy and mostly sane right now. Your turn...
New blog post! You asked and I’m answering... I’m great detail. Should you keep planning your wedding? Spoiler Alert: the answer is yes. Check out today’s blog post where I discuss why: http://bit.ly/keepplanning (link in the bio) #keepplanning #postponedontcancel #saveevents In this article I reference some advice shared by the always amazing @kennedyevents.

We're fielding lots of questions this week about whether or not to postpone various upcoming events. We ourselves were planning to host an Open House in our new space on April 2 and we've opted to push that celebration back to June. Right now I'm feeling confident that life will be back to normal by May so anything taking place in May or beyond should be fine to proceed as normal. As for April, we're taking it day-by-day and event-by-event. Luckily, the events industry is made up of the types of people who are used to (and really good at) rolling with the punches, pivoting when plans change, and coming up with creative solutions on the fly. We've got this! We're doing absolutely everything we can from our computers at home to plan and coordinate and be totally ready to hit the ground running once life returns to normal. All of the weddings and celebrations will be so important in helping us move forward when the time comes. There will be lots to celebrate. Stay well everyone!
COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS Hi Friends, Like all of you, the team at Sage Designs is watching the development of the COVID-19 situation closely. We applaud our government and community leaders who have taken steps to encourage social distancing over the next couple of weeks. We understand that these precautions are a means of slowing the spread of the virus in the hopes of reducing the burden on our healthcare system as they work tirelessly to manage the outbreak. There’s absolutely nothing we can do to help those amazing humans more dramatically than to adopt social distancing practices. We're confident that the more people choose to stay home the quicker we'll be rid of this virus and the sooner we can get back to our regular routines. For our part, we are implementing strategies to aid the government in their efforts. Most importantly, since we have no events this coming week our team will be working from home for the next 7 days. Next, our showroom will be closed for in-person consultations between now and March 30, 2020. All of the events that we currently have scheduled will go ahead as planned and our team will take extra precautions to ensure that everything and everyone is staying safe and sanitized. We’re taking this day-by-day, event-by-event. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us by email:
Thank you for your patience and understanding. Be well, Friends. xo The Sage Team
We're just over a week into our move and we're finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Soon we'll be fully operational and we can't wait to start producing floral arrangements in our new home!! Also... can I just mention that our friend and team member, Mike, captured this on his phone? :-O Photo Credit: @drumminsky Venue: @fairmontlaurier #ottawawedding #sagedesignsevents #sagedesignsceremony
