Be Our Guest – Joella Hopkins, Simply Mumtaz Events

Simply Mumtaz Events, Inc. has been a long time customer of Wildflower Linen, since 2003. It was fate, if you call it that, that Joella Hopkins, CSEP, CMP owner of Simply Mumtaz meet up with Youngsong Martin and struck up a friendship even before the mutual business relationship started. Joella lived in Korea for 3 ½ years while she was in Junior and High School. Youngsong is from Korea, so it was natural to start reminiscing. Namdaemoon, Dongdaemoon, Bulgolgi, Korean candy that doesn’t exist anymore! But, anyways – it was a great match and the relationship grew professionally. Below you can see photos of some terrific events that were all created by Simply Mumtaz with Wildflower Linen.

The following are photos for fundraising Galas. The first with three shades of purple, a lavender, lilac, and purple which helped create a wonderful atmosphere – the lighting helped. The second with a gold shantung linen to make the event magnificently gold.

The next two photos are for Foundation fundraisers. The first being at the Ebell of Los Angeles and we again used gold, but this time a Satin to lay the base for a red and gold event. The second was much more “wild”. The event was held at Hollywood and Highland and we wanted to bring a since of glair to the event, so we had these striking white and black linens, when ladies arrived they were given black boas and the men strutted down the red carpet with canes!

The final photo is the most recent and also more the greenest event we’ve done… 100% of all recyclables were recycled, 100% carbon neutral, 100% organic, and many more exciting green facts. The linen here we used were both an iridescent taffeta and Russian linen. Wildflower Linen is an extremely efficient business, recycling their water and using eco-friendly cleaning products for their linens making them an eco-friendly business.

It’s been a pleasure to work with Wildflower Linen and their team! Everyone is a pleasure and we will be long time customers and we recommend if you haven’t given them a shot, do it! The linens are gorgeous!
