How to Plan the Perfect Intimate Ocassion!

As the temperature starts to warm up, the time has come for us to open up our homes to entertain. We all love throwing a a party for close friends and family but we  hate  the cost of hosting one. Especially one friends and family will be talking about until next years Soiree…

Here’s a few tips and tricks to help you plan the perfect intimate occasion!

Start off  with a WARM WELCOME…

Simply inviting guest to your event just does’nt cut it these days. Guest want to feel welcomed into your home and appreciated for their presence. Add a simple welcome sig to greet guests upon their arrival.  Assist with coat checks, or offer refreshing drinks or appetizers while guest wait for the main course. This  is a great way to build your rep as the perfect hostess!

Presentation is a PLUS!

Nothing is wrong with the traditional buffet line food table. But give this years food table a little bit of pop by arranging the food in unique serving platters or fancy dessert dishes. Adding height with cake pedestals or stands will give any buffet table life!  Instead of that shabby beverage cooler opt for a bar setup. Cant afford to rent a bar setup? Thats fine simply make your own bar with tables or old furniture you have around house , even vintage bar carts from the thrift store are a hit! After creating  your home made bartop  you can design  a  yummy signature drink mix. Thats sure to get guest talking!  Think about buying some inexpensive plastic wine or margarita glasses. Perfect to  achieve an upscale look on a budget and to reuse next year.

Details they will REMEMBER!

Adding signature details to your event is the most important factor to planning an intimate ocassion. Create an ambiance for your affair by adding candles, or soft plush pillows to possibly create a simple lounge area. Maybe adding an dancefloor will really get the party started!  Or you can purchase scented oils to create a delicious aroma.  Whatever you decide make it something that worksdwith your overall event concept. Lastly, always remember to send guest with special favors to take home to show your gratitude for them attending your event.

   

 

Have some ideas you’d like to share with us for planning the perfect intimate occasion? We’d love to heard about it! Feel free to comment below.  Take a look at some details from a recent intimate beach barbeque we did!

CRAFT YOUR EASTER SHABBY CHIC!

Boston weather is finally warming up (for the moment..) and what a better way to start the season than a shabby chic furniture project!

 

I started by purchasing  an old cupboard from a local thrift store for about $10.  I knew this piece would be absolutely perfect for Easter, and I thought why not Shabby it up a bit! I purchased a few supplies from the local hardware and craft store and began my shabby chic masterpiece!

cabinet

Here’s what you will need to shabby chic wooden furniture:

Plaster of Paris

Paint &  Primer

Metallic Paint

Wax sealer

Paint brush

warm water

bucket

paint ruler

 

shabby supplies

To create my chalk board paint (which is often used for the look), I began by mixing  plaster of Paris with a little bit of warm  water to get a smooth milky consistency. I then mixed the plaster of Paris in with the white paint. You could easily buy chalk board paint at the store but its a little pricey :/ Plus its more fun to make your own and a lot cheaper!  When it comes to what your painting  it really is up to you. You do not have to do any real prep work to your furniture piece. As long as you have a solid wooden piece  you are ready to go! You might want to wipe it down if its a little dusty. Now let the painting begin!

paint-over-chalkboard-paint_thumb

After letting my two coats of chalk board paint dry, I lightly brushed the areas of my cupboard that has nicks and bruises with metallic paint. This step is crucial for the shabby look! Afterwards I took my sanding block and gently struck the areas where I placed the metallic paint. This process gives you a more shabby -worn look.

shabby chic

Viola now you have a new custom shabby chic furniture piece to show off at your next event! I immediately used mine for a mini Easter shoot with a friends niece! Check out how in the pics below!

Whats what for Weddings in 2014…!

Were back and Happy to be out of hibernation! We have made some changes,  and we hope you like 🙂  It has definitley been awhile and we are back with LOADS  to dish on the latest trends and styles  for Weddings  in 2014.

As you all know its officially Wedding Season.  With that being said,  if you are already in the process of planning your wedding you may be overwhelmed with all the wedding pop up ads, and confused as to which pinterest board speaks to your wedding dream day. Here is a straight to- it guide on whats in for 2014, in the areas that matter most when it comes to walking down the aisle.  What know more?! Well keep reading. It gets better!

Ceremony

The most important part of the wedding, but often times overlooked when it comes to making a statement on the Big Day.  Trending this year when it comes to ceremonies is the  couples recessional .  Some might say what the hell is the recessional and what does that have to do with the ceremony? The recessional is the first moment after the ceremony the Bride and Groom introduce themselves to world as a married couple. Instead of the traditional flower petals or rice toss try something your guests wil truly remember. Like dazzling Sparklers or  be different and do something that symbolizes something special like the first time you met at the bike park with a bike line recessional! Whatever you decide remember Bold is Better!  Another ceremony statement for you to think about.. Guess.. you know what Im going to say.. that;s right Bridesmaids dresses! That washed up tradition of  all your Bridal party wearing the same ugly taffeta dress is out the window. Keep it Chic n Unique with ever so popular ombre or two tone brides maids dress. And our personal favorite the very non- traditional idea of totally bridal gowns but with the same color tone. Ladies if your Bridal parties body types are completely  different  this option is the Best FIT for them.

Reception

The most anticipated part of the Wedding , the good ole reception. So many important elements when it comes to planning a memorable wedding reception. One of the most important things to remember is SIGNAGE. We are not just talking about signs to point out the direction of the bathroom ( which is also important) but signage that will represent the theme or mood you want to express. This year I have seen so many creative ways to display guest seating assignments and instructions for beautiful guest book tables. I’m absolutely in love with the escort envelope wall!  And of course those beautiful hanging mirror signs.  All of these elements are perfect ways to add a little something extra special to build those lasting memories 🙂

Decor

Yeessss, over the top,  gaudy wedding decor is BACK!  From lux rental pieces like mirror top tables, gold crystal candelabaras, and extravagant floralscapes,  all perfect decor elements for a signature wedding. For those with a more contemporary taste, architectural centerpieces; with a  focus on shapes and height,  are becoming more  and more of an industry trend. Dare to be Different folks!  And for the for those vintage rustic brides out there, the Tuscan table is EVERYTHING when it comes to the perfect country wedding design. My favorite design element this season is the luscious wedding table flower garland. A little pricy but what better way to get the WOW-FACTOR your are looking for then a  anaconda arrangment of goregous blossoms running across your tabletops! (Stay tuned for more blogs tips on how -to make your own garland and accomodations for weddings on a budget.)

Food & Beverage

When it comes to what’s on the menu and what’s to drink its all about appealing presentation and mouthwatering flavor’s! Couples are no longer using that standard hotel bartender. Unique companies are popping up all of the place, that strictly specialize in custom bar designs and signature drink menus catered to the Bride and Grooms personal taste. What would your signature drink be called or taste like ?
