2016 Madison Rising Tide Society Kickoff | Business Post | Cafe Hollander.

January 19, 2016

If you’ve been here awhile, you know that Caleb + I lead the Madison, WI branch of a nation-wide organization called The Rising Tide Society. This organization brings creatives together who believe in the idea of #communityovercompetition + can rally together to build one another up + encourage each other in our business + creative endeavors!

On the second Tuesday of every month, around the nation (+ world actually), these local branches meet as a physical place where creatives from each state can meet, talk, grow, learn, + #makewaves, as we call it!! : ) These groups are called “Tuesdays Together” meetings + here in Madison, Caleb + I facilitate these gatherings. SO, if you’re a local creative here in southern Wisconsin + this is the first time you’re hearing of this movement/these gatherings, be sure to find us on Facebook “Tuesdays Together – Madison, Wisconsin” + JOIN US!! We love our group + are so incredibly thankful for this community!

To kick off 2016 here in Madison, we knew we wanted to have a fun, social evening together to reflect on the past year + reconnect with everyone after the holidays before diving into all the new material for 2016!! Lucky for us, a brand new restaurant here in Madison, Cafe Hollander, had been wanting to launch the EVENT side of their business + offered to host all 30+ of us creatives in their new event space!! Caleb + I have been obsessed (quite honestly) with this restaurant since it opened a couple of months ago + we are just THRILLED to be able to share with other creatives, business owners, + even BRIDES that this AMAZING, amazing space can be rented out + used for gatherings, rehearsal dinners, etc.!! Cafe Hollander not only has delicious food + hundreds of beers from around the world on their menu, but their staff are crazy-friendly + the space itself is so unique (the upstairs walls are made of glass garage doors + can be opened in the summer for an outside/patio-feel for the entire space)!! If anything, you HAVE to try it for a fun dinner date night! : )

Thanks SO much to Cafe Hollander for so graciously hosting us, to Elevate Events for making the event look beautiful, + to Alluring Blooms for providing the gorgeous floral centerpieces!!

Isn’t this place just magical?! And this is just one tiny little corner of the whole space!! 

Leaving you with this SUPER cute shot of me making announcements for the group! ; )
