My name is Angela Osborne and I’ve been at Mille Fleurs for two years. In my role, I seem to handle a little – and sometimes a lot – of everything, from the restaurant’s daily finances and staff schedules to keeping our seasonally changing menus precise. One part of my position is by far my favorite: event planning.
Call me a perfectionist, but I love coordinating all the details that come together to make each occasion unique. I consider it my personal duty to ensure that a Mille Fleurs event is never a “cookie cutter” event! I take a lot of pride in this part of my job, and I love that the positive feedback is so instantaneous; it’s right there on guests’ faces while they’re here at the restaurant.
My favorite Mille Fleurs events are those marking a pivotal time in someone’s life: wedding receptions, rehearsals, baby showers and more. I love seeing everyone enjoying the restaurant’s beautiful setting and knowing that I was able to be a part of creating that experience for them.
As recent examples of my favorite types of events, I was lucky enough to be a part of two weddings held on site last September, and both called for attention to detail – which you know by now I love. At the first wedding, we had fun replicating the bride and groom’s signature cocktails throughout the day. At the second wedding we created a secret entrance/exit for the bride to sneak out to take pictures without being seen by any of her guests. I wanted both ceremonies to be exactly what the couples wanted, and with the help of our amazing kitchen and front-of-house staff, I was so proud of what we were able to execute.
I’m excited to being a part of more unique and special events and can’t wait to see what we’ll be able to do for our guests this year!
