Disclosure: This was a non-paid opportunity for me. I received swag and refreshments in return for this post.#Comfyintaylor

Gardner-White_TaylorLast night, I attended the Re-Grand Opening of the Gardner-White Furniture in Taylor, MI. This Gardner-White location was recently remodeled and it is stunning! From the bright lights to the well-designed layout. I was invited to attend this event by a public relations company called Marx Layne. Getting to the Gardner-White location was part of the fun! I drove to the offices of Marx Layne in Farmington Hills, to hop on a limousine with 4 other bloggers and the senior vice president of Marx Layne. Inside the limo, we were presented with various refreshments and we were able to get to know each other. IMG_7225

When we arrived at the Taylor Gardner-White, the paparazzi was waiting with cameras. I felt like a star hopping out onto the red carpet! After our initial descent from the limo, we posed for the above photo with Steve Tronstein, Gardner-White CEO. You may recognize him from Gardner-White television commercials.

This event was open to the public where they were also given the “star” treatment. Besides viewing the store’s renovations, guests were able to enjoy a live performance by Ferndale-based award-winning singer-songwriter Jill Jack, chair massages, make-up demos, free strolling appetizers, desserts, and various beverages, including wine. Of course, I was first in line for both the massage and the make-up demos. Francie Paull Fruitman was my make-up artist. She was so personable and she knew exactly what my face needed for a little extra sass. Francie does make-up for all occasions including weddings, proms, photo shoots, theater, television, and more. Check out her Facebook page.


After being pampered, I decided to browse the store and have some appetizers which were handed out by people strolling around the store. The newly renovated store is well organized with a living room area, bedroom, mattresses, dining room, home office, kids, and outlet/clearance area. The lighting in the store added a nice ambiance to already beautiful furniture displays.

This event sponsored two local non-profit organizations:

Enchanted Makeovers, a Taylor-based nonprofit that works with women, children, and female veterans battling homelessness, post-traumatic stress disorder, and domestic violence.

Humble Design, a Pontiac-based nonprofit that helps furnish homes for the formerly homeless in Taylor and the Detroit-areas.

Thanks to Gardner-White and Marx Layne for supporting these two non-profit organizations and for planning a night of pampering this chick!
