Detroit!!

Everyone loves their hometown, right? The beating heart of us all…. Our sports teams, mascots, clubs, restaurants, museums, architecture and beauty. Here are just a few things that I love about Detroit…

The East Ferry Avenue Historic District is a historic residential district in MidtownDetroit, Michigan. The nationally designated historic district stretches two blocks from Woodward Avenue east to Brush Street; the locally designated historic district includes a third block between Brush and Beaubien. The district includes the separately designated Col. Frank J. Hecker House and the Charles Lang Freer House. It was designated a Michigan State Historic Site in 1976[2] and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]il_fullxfull.1076710063_6k67.jpginn3.jpgThe Inn on Ferry Street is a member of Historic Hotels of America, the official program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.[3]Next on our stop… you guessed it… Hey, Hey, Hockeytown!!th-1.jpeg

Not that anyone would be surprised by a Detroiters love for our home teams!th-3.jpegth-2.jpeg

We cannot forget the Lions and Tigers, OH My!

Next UP!

Campus Martius Park is a re-established park in DowntownDetroit, Michigan. After the fire of 1805, Campus Martius (from the Latin for Field of Mars, where Roman heroes walked) was the focal point of Judge Augustus Woodward‘s plans to rebuild the city.

The new Campus Martius Park was dedicated November 19, 2004 and includes two performance stages, sculptures, public spaces and a seasonal ice skating rink. At 1.2 acres (4,900 m2), the park is smaller than its predecessor, as a full restoration of the original would have required the demolition of several buildings. However, the city increased the amount of park space in the area by constructing the new Cadillac Square Park, which opened in summer 2007, immediately to the east of Campus Martius. The park’s skating rink is designed to resemble the Rockefeller Center rink in New York City but is larger in size. Since its opening the rink has been operated by Magic Ice USA, Inc. Campus Martius Park is the home of the annual Motown Winter Blast, an event that has drawn more than 450,000 people to the downtown area every year and it has become the site of the city’s annual Christmas tree lighting celebration, held the Monday before Thanksgiving. Thousands come to hear Christmas music and countdown to the lighting of the city’s official Christmas tree and other decorations to mark the start of the holiday season.

The Michigan Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument is a Civil War monument located in DowntownDetroit, Michigan. This example of civic sculpture stands in a prominent location on the southeast tip of Campus Martius Park, where five principal thoroughfares—Michigan Avenue, Monroe Street, Cadillac Square, Fort Street, and Woodward Avenue—convene on the reconstructed traffic circle in front of One Campus Martius Building. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.[1]1024px-Detroit_December_2015_24_(Campus_Martius_Park).jpg

A Few more to mention… the Zoo, the DIA and the science museum…detroitzoo.jpgdetroit-institute-arts-facade.jpg515eeb8731797.preview-620.jpg

We couldn’t possibly list all the things we love about Detroit… The nightlife, the restaurants, the casinos, Belle Isle, the conservatory, aquarium, our hometown products, food and gardens. There is a never ending list of amazing things to see and do. Wonderful shopping, fabulous dining, entertainment galore and the vast history we hold……everyone must come and try for themselves.

Thanksgiving Once More

Organic-thanksgiving-tablescape_2.jpgIt has been too long since I have written here and as the holidays roll around, I always come back.  I have been preparing steadily for two week for my favorite day of the year. The food, the drinks, the fall colors, the aroma… the most decadent of all our days. A day filled with warmth and family and home. This holiday at its core embodies all of the things that are right about the human experience. To be thankful for what we have, who we are and who is around us. It gets lost all too often in the shuffle. We see the long lines at the stores, accompanied by unsmiling faces and just get disheartened. I too have, on occasion succumb to dismay, but on that day where we feast and laugh, it all melts away. I would just like to extend warm wishes from our family to yours… may your holidays be filled with love and togetherness, may your cup run over with the bounty of all you love and may the people nearest to you be the ones you most treasure. Take the time to enjoy all around you, let your senses absorb the wonder that is this life and with a kind spirit and a generous heart, spring you in the holiday season.

We Love The Use Of Mirrors…

 

 

We are not talking about  just on the tables either!  Mirrors are being used for signage, seating charts, menus, and even furniture. Mirrors can add instant shimmer and glamour to any event.

As Event Planners, we love to use mirrors to visually expand the surrounding space. Mirrors placed strategically around the venue can make the overall space appear larger. They can also increase the light in the room. Think about situating them in places where they will also visually multiply the number of floral arrangements. This trick will make everything appear more lush.

Instead of one mirror tile in the center of the table, try a runner of mirror tiles down the table. What a beautiful and simple way to add mirrors to your event!

Get creative and have fun, but make sure that the mirrors are secured at all times for safety.
