When I got my ticket to Women on the Rise's Vision Board Brunch of 2022, I really didn't know what I was going to put on my board. I was simply excited to make new friends, eat some amazing food, and make a really cute board for my room. Luckily, Women on the Rise had an awesome plan to help get those juices flowing- through mimosas and motivational speakers.
The Celeste Hotel was the perfect setting for this girls morning- I loved their chic style! After checking in with WOTR and getting our food preference cards (vegan for me!) , we were greeted with mimosas and welcomed into Celeste's conference room. I made a new friend coming in, Candi, and we found two spots together.
Each seat was prepared with scissors, a pompom, a pink pen, a 2022 Goal Setting Workbook, a Finance Your Vision pamphlet, and a gift bag with some candy, hand sanitizer, and a glue stick. They founders introduced themselves and gave us a rundown of how the event was going to play out. Candi and I made two new friends at our table, who we ended up having a lot in common with. I was excited to learn our new friend Chelsea and I are neighbors! What a small world!
And then, BRUNCH! Oh my gosh, I was super impressed with this three-course vegan meal. They offered chicken, salmon, and other options as well. The salad wasn't very exciting without dressing, but the sweet potato entree was phenomenal with asparagus- and everyone's dessert was vegan! They used coconut milk for this yummy rice pudding with blueberries and raspberries.
They played fun music, the mimosas kept coming, we filled out our 2022 Goals Workbook, and then began working on our vision boards. They supplied hundreds of magazines and a large poster board for each of us. They also had some colorful photo spots set up, where we got some amazing photos!
Overall, this was an amazing event filled with likeminded, positive women who want to do good in the community and help each other succeed. Women on the Rise hosts events like this around Orlando year-round, and I can't wait to attend another one!
