What is Kio Kreations?

Kio Kreations is an all-encompassing creative services company. Started by Kristen Janes (formerly Kristen Henschen) in 2004, Kio Kreations has grown to include floral design, graphic design, product design, fine art, and other creative services. We have quickly become one of the highest-rated independent florists in the Chicagoland. We also design oodles of fun things for sale on ETSY and ZAZZLE. We design lots of stuff for corporate & private clients and also teach art and floral design lessons. We really are an all-encompassing creative services company!


LOVE BREWS Wedding Event

Save the Date for the LOVE BREWS WEDDING EVENT!

Kio Kreations is going to be featured as part of the LOVE BREWS Wedding Event on Sunday, February 21, 2010 in Palatine, Illinois. Please mark your calendars for this Talent Showcase with Live Demonstrations!

After years of avoiding bridal expos and shows because of their “sell-sell-sell” nature and their impersonal, convention-like feel, I have finally decided to do a Wedding Event–MY WAY!

Love Brews” is the anti-wedding expo. It is a smaller, more intimate showcase of 6 wedding vendors which will include beautiful sights and sounds along with live demonstrations given by the vendors themselves. There will be no need to feel pressured to sign or buy anything – this is more of an opportunity to see your vendor/s working their magic in person.

Vendors featured at the event include:

Kio Kreations (Florist, Decor & More)
XL-Entertainment (DJ)
The Chair Couture (Linens)
Cynthia Sally (Makeup Artist)
AC Design & Photography (Photographer)
Big Day Boutique (Invitations, Decor & More)

The venue itself, Emmett’s Tavern and Brewing Co., has 2 stunning rooms available to rent for your small reception, rehearsal dinner, engagement party or wedding shower. I loved this venue so much after my first visit there for dinner with my Mother-in-law that I knew I wanted to do our event there. It is located in the western suburbs just north of Schaumburg off of Palatine Road. It is also within steps of the Palatine Train Station making it an easy destination for city brides.

Why call this event “Love Brews“?!  Well, I wanted to play up the venue which is this stunning building below that is both a restaurant and microbrewery. The whole idea that they brew their own beer only adds to the uniqueness of the event! Plus, all of wedding professionals featured in this event are independently-owned and budget-friendly allowing you to get your “champagne tastes on your beer budget”….so it just makes sense that we all be a part of an event called “Love Brews”!!!


I am so very excited about our event and hope you can attend! Please save-the-date and tell others about it! This event is open to our existing & future clients as well as newly-engaged couples still looking for great vendors. We hope to see you there!
