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.

Honey… Bee Mine

For a sweet event, a honey bee theme is perfect. Filled with bright colors of yellow and flavors of delectable honey, this is a unique way to celebrate and most certainly a memorable one.

 

There are so many plays on words you can incorporate into a honey bee themed occasion, such as “Meant to Bee” or “Bride to Bee”, so let your creativity fly

Obviously you’ll want to bring honey flavors into as much as your party food as you can, so opt for honey cocktails with actual honeycombs as garnishes, cakepops in the shape of honeycombs themselves, detailed sugar cookies in the shapes of honey bees and even honey flavored hard candies in containers that look like bee keeper boxes. The possibilities  are endless with this sweet theme!

Designing The Perfect Summer Party

 

Summertime has been the time for relaxation and fun for many years. We grow up enjoying summers away from school as a time to enjoy not having the responsibility of school work. No wonder there are still so many adults who look forward to this time of the year and summer entertaining.

Here are some of our ideas for creative summer entertaining.  

Turn a weeknight BBQ dinner into something special.  Tie a sheet up in a tree and invest in a portable projector.  Hooked up to your laptop, you can host your own alfresco outdoor movie night. Turn your backyard into your own private theatre. Setup the hammock, and arrange outdoor furniture.  Throw pillows and blankets on the grass.  Serve some  movie theatre cuisine with a twist ! Think  truffled  popcorn, sliders, and homemade sodas.

 

 

 

Picnic blankets don’t need to be red and white gingham.  Why not bring your oriental outside and patchwork them on the lawn? As long as the weather is fair – bring indoor furniture outside for a special alfresco experience – dining tables, chairs, lamps – etc.  Alternatively, bring the outdoors in by repurposing gardening tools as serving pieces for a summer salad station.  We love using gardening trowels as spoons for an outdoorsylook and feel.  And it goes without saying that the spoils of summer – flowers, foliage, fruits, and vegetables – are a reminder of the season.

Ice Cream has so many flavors and new artisanal vendors these days! Adults and children alike will enjoy a good old-fashioned Ice Cream Social.  Get creative with boozy ice cream creations for grownups like Bourbon Vanilla Milkshakes. Get out your soda glasses!

Keep it simple, but undeniably elegant by incorporating antique elements into your table decor. Crystal glasses and aged golden candle holders sitting on top of a bare picnic table combine to present a rustic, yet graceful setting. Building on this idea, use flowers to add pops of color to your party. Lights…..Use lots of lights!

Beers, sodas, and wines don’t need to be chilled in ugly coolers.  Presentation is obviously everything – think about what you might have in your home that could be repurposed as coolers. Wheelbarrows, inflatable kiddie pools, bathtubs, canoes, and rowboats are all great coolers when filled with ice and bottled drinks!

Ring in the holidays !!

There is no better way  than to celebrate the holidays with cool vintage champagne  and wine glasses. There are so many beautiful styles to choose from! The colors are endless!

 

 

 

 

 

 

There is no reason to spend a fortune on them. Check out your local thrift store, antique sales, garage sales and estate sales  to build your collection throughout  the year !
