Blog: Behind the Pom: A Look Inside Our Warehouse

ultrapom showroom

Last week we hosted a networking event in our show room and warehouse for wedding industry pros (Thursday Therapy – check it out KC people, they are also in other cities as well!).  It was the real kick in the butt we needed to get our place – mostly – finished out. Jana Marie Photography took photos of the evening, including some great shots of our show room and warehouse. We thought it is a great opportunity to show what all we have done to our space over the last year. (The first few photos below are decidedly NOT be Jana Marie!)

This is where we started:

A blank space, just waiting to be filled.  And fill it we did! These two photos are from the day we moved in (Kerry and I were very tired but very happy at the end of the day):

It was the middle of wedding season, and we were just getting everything in the warehouse. Fitting out the show room and making it pretty were pretty low on the list at that point.

Over the rest of 2014, we slowly made updates to the show room (like painting the ceiling and constructing brass chandeliers), and reworked the warehouse to better fit our needs. David put in a ton of hours building the display shelves, and finishing out the show room. All his hard work really paid off! When an opportunity came up to host Thursday Therapy, we took it! We scrambled to actually finish it up, like hang photos and put up a sign, so it is now looking pretty good.

We share space with the Vintage Plate Company (and partner with them for vintage plate rentals), so we of course co-hosted with them. We were able to bring together a great group of vendors to make the night extra special. If you are looking for local KC wedding vendors, start with this list:

Our loading dock and new sign! Our employee, Lauren handpainted it:

We work in the middle of the warehouse, so we can easily talk to our shipping people when there are questions or last minute orders. Our desks normally aren’t nearly this clean:

The Garnish Co. set out a great bar to prepare their signature drink (our workshop is behind them).

Moxie Catering set up a great appetizer spread in the Vintage Plate Company’s area, and Hitched Planning and Floral made an amazing centerpiece for the table, with our tungsten sequin tablecloth.

Dolce Bakery made a great mix of sweets for the event, which we displayed on our assorted white cake stands.

A Thursday Therapy, and Ultrapom, first – we had a proposal at the event! It of course necessitated a selfie with the Selfie King of KC, Mike from 4Honor Photography.  Congratulations, Jessica and Topper!

Thank you to everyone who came out to Thursday Therapy! We had a great time!

I hope you enjoyed seeing a our show room and warehouse, and see a bit behind the scenes here at Ultrapom. We are so happy to finally have it pretty much put together. If you are in the Kansas City area, we would love to set up an appointment to come to our show room and check out our inventory!

All the best,
