2018: A Year In Review

This past year was absolutely incredible! We won the Best of Weddings award from The Knot. We launched our new website and unveiled our new logo/brand. However, it’s the spectacular events we planned and designed that really made this year one for the books! We worked on dozens of gorgeous weddings like this one for Sabrina and Todd… and we organized multiple corporate events like this stylish steampunk party for Akeneo. We planned birthdays, anniversaries, showers and more. We got to know each of our clients and we brought their visions to life! So, it really was an incredible year full of creativity, passion, and LOVE. An experience that we can’t wait to relive in 2019!

Unique End of Year Party Themes and Decor

It’s the end of the year and it’s time to mix things up!

We’ve even planned a 007 themed New Year’s Eve party for one of our private clients. There were James Bond impersonators, ice sculptures, and even a waitstaff that dressed as the Gold Girls from The Man With The Golden Gun. So, as you can see, the […]

GIVE BACK TO YOUR COMMUNITY – we love when our clients give back and their guests do too! One idea we’ve seen and love is  adopting a family for the holidays. As the host, […]

Are you wondering what an event planner really does? The answer is everything! Planning an event can be truly stressful. There are so many vendors with different products and services that it’s easy to get overwhelmed.

The Most Important Graduation Party Detail

When planning a corporate function, fundraiser or wedding there are many elements to consider. You have to find the perfect venue, entertainment, florist and more. However, when you’re planning a graduation celebration, there’s really just one thing that matters… the menu! Most graduation parties are held at home. So, instead of focusing on the perfect venue, we book our clients the most spectacular caterer.
