Prior to starting Little Root Creative, owner and event designer Cheryl Thornton was involved in planning and designing for a wide variety of special events. One of her greatest experiences was being a part of the team for The Grand Wine & Food Affair. For three years, Cheryl was a part of this high-energy group, putting on a five-day thirty-five event wine and food extravaganza with vintner dinners, sip-and-strolls and grand galas spanning southwest Texas from Fort Bend County to downtown Houston.

“Rain or shine, we were sipping wine at The Grand Wine & Food Affair!”

During this time Cheryl also assisted with charity golf tournaments, special membership events, ribbon cutting ceremonies, corporate seminars, and membership communication at the Chamber of Commerce located in Sugar Land, Texas.
