It was Cassie's idea, and though it took a while to actually get started on it, and there were a few hiccups along the way, everything came together quite beautifully at the end.
We had about 20 guests, some who had never even read any of our blogs, but saw the event on Bella Naija and decided to come anyway. Shouts out to Pulse Nigeria also, for spreading the word. I was really astounded and grateful to God, our family/friends, our readers and all the vendors who made it all possible and supported us. THANK YOU SO MUCH.
Okay, lemme stop writing and share some of the photos we took - unfortunately, we didn't have a professional photographer, so all I have are pictures that Cakes helped me take, and some from Tuke as well.
Ethnic Heritage Centre went ABOVE and BEYOND for us!!! Their customer service and hospitality is something that is rare to find in Nigeria, and I must commend every single one of their staff and management. You guys need to go there - it's such a chill and fun place. You can take language classes (Igbo, Yoruba, Hausa and French), and they have skills classes too - Gele, Bead Making, Sewing, Crafts, etc. Also use them for smaller events like bridal showers, classes, even small weddings! Oh, and I heard their small chops was awesome - I didn't eat out of excitement.

Just before the event started, a lady walked in with 3 bags and said that Eve and Tribe heard about the event and decided to send us gifts!!! We were completely shocked! And they also sent our guests flyers with 20% off discounts on their clothes!!!
|I really like this photo Tuke took of us.|
