Yearbook Studios located in Forest Park is more than just a store. The vintage style wares with a hip tilt are always displayed in a way that sees to every detail. Co-owner's Jef Anderson and Noel Eberline meld their experiences in such a way that is apparent in every corner. Shopping is a total sensory experience as smells of vintage era cologne mingle with the merchandise.

In addition to retail, Jef Anderson uses his design experience to create web sites and marketing materials for his clients. Those same clients can have Yearbook Studios work magic in their interior spaces, designing that same flawless look for a personal home.

With their most recent announcement launching an event planning business, it would seem their services can meet any need of their clients.

It is no surprise that Yearbook Studios' event nights are so popular. Yearbook calls all of these nights Study Halls in keeping with their collegial theme. These evenings have inspired some regulars, who are really pleased that Yearbook event planning can become a part of their next gathering.

Carrie Brinkman and David Claudon of Oak Park attended Yearbooks' most recent Sundeck nautical themed event. They haven't missed one Study Hall since they started attending. Brinkman looks forward to each new themed night, "I love coming and learning something about food or decorating. They pay attention to every detail. I greatly appreciate it."

This most recent party featured appetizers fashioned using recipes from a historical cookbook so that even the food would taste like the Great Gatsby era. The deck chairs, balloons, champagne, were all displayed in perfection. Of course, parties rely heavily on someone bringing it all together. On the Yearbook Sundeck, Noel Eberline, another creative co-owner at Yearbook, socialized with guests like old friends giving the event a big family feel.

Yearbook parties have everything a party needs, good food, perfect atmosphere and new friends that feel like old friends. They inspire return guests. Making events a possiblity for Yearbook's individual clients seems like a given way to grow their business.
