Last week I was asked by my regional manager to go help decorate the room at the Royal Palms Resort again in Phoenix. LOVE, LOVE that resort! I've been to a lot of resorts for work meetings and this is by far the prettiest resort I've ever seen. Well she also asked if I could help with a meeting down in Tucson at the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort using a "space theme." What a miserable experience that was going down there yesterday! First off they said the room would be ready at 3:00 for me to come down. I was there at 4:00 thinking I would just get all of the binders set out and room decorated and go home so I would be done no later than 6:00. Wishful thinking. The room was still a mess from the last group that was in the room and they didn't even start cleaning up or setting up the room until around 8:15. NOT a happy girl!! Not only that, the rooms were typical conference rooms - blah and boring with UGLY burnt orange color tablecloths. Needless to say, they had to go as I was using a blue and silver color scheme so we had them change out all of the linens to black. I would never recommend that resort to anyone. Ashley was sweet and volunteered to be with me on this road trip. We didn't get home until 11:00 PM. I think I'm done helping with regional meetings for awhile! Hopefully they will not be having any more here in the Phoenix area for awhile!
I didn't get any pictures taken of the room, but it sure turned out cute! We had blue and silver stars everywhere along with some pictures I got from NASA on the walls. The welcome bags I made up had Buzz Lightyear holding a can of Similac saying "To Infinity & Beyond".
