S.H.E. SHOWCASE PARTY

We are Back and We Pulled it Off! In case you missed it we had an amazing time hosting our official business launch party a couple weeks ago. Held at the recently opened Fairmount Grille in Hyde Park, we transformed their standard private function room and created a upscale -chic cocktail lounge! And if I must say it turned out FAB-U-LOUS! Our guest enjoyed delicious appetizers, signature cocktails and tunes by amazing Dj Casper of  Takeover Sound.  After launching our company in 2010 It was such an amazing experience to meet such amazing  people who believed in our vision, while witnessing all of guest enjoy our event services first hand! If you didn’t get a chance to make it take a look at some of our pics below!

Lastly but not the least of course, we  had to share our latest Wedding event with you. Just a few weeks ago we had the opportunity to coordinate a very intimate wedding ceremony for a lovely couple. This adorable ceremony was held at the famous Maggianos Italian Restautarnt in Boston. For our sweet Military Bride we created a simple yet romanctic atmosphere using Calla Lily &  hydrangea florals , along side floating candle light.  The couple truly enjoyed tying the knot and we were so grateful to be apart of this special day 🙂

Whew  we’ve been very busy the last few weeks! And I had to take a moment to show off our Spooktacular Halloween Dinner Party we setup this past weekend!

Halloween Tablescape

Inspired by the new Hits Tv series American Horror Story: The Coven and Witches of East End. I decided to TRANSFORM my dining room and  do a  dinner party table with elements that reminded me of witches, love spells, and their powerful magic!

morespiders  SpiderNroses

We draped the table with Creepy little Creatures and Spider Webs!  Whats Halloween without a couple of insects to make your skin crawl!

skull place setting

 This Glitter N Gold Skull- Rose Place Setting was above all my favorite element of the dinner Party! This was a very simple DIY addition to our tablescape design to give a hint of Glam but still SCARY!!!

blood n bones

Honey N Tea Party!!!!

We almost forgot to post the pics from our latest event!  On Labor Day weekend, we had the opportunity of hosting a Fun event we called the Honey N Tea Party!

The theme for this event was inspired by Classic Winnie The Pooh. I organized this event for some close friends of mine and their children. Being that we live in the city of Boston, It’s not that likely that our city kids or their parents will ever attend a tea party. Anyone can host a tea party and it doesn’t have to be for any particular reason. Any reason is perfect to dress up, look good and eat good. So the Honey N Tea party was born!

Honey N Tea Invites
 One of the major components for this event was the Honey Snack Bar. The overall design concept for the snack bar was a woodsy-rustic feel with a hint of elegance, being that it was for a tea party. All the snacks on the snack bar were all Honey flavored except one. The snacks included:
 Allyson Voner     Allyson Voner
Honeycombs Cereal
Honey Teddy Graham Crackers
Fried Dough Pops
(All food items were purchased from Family Dollar. The Pizza dough purchased from Stop & Shop was rolled into balls and dropped in a deep fryer. Then I coated them in powdered sugar and cinnamon a few moments before the tea party began!)

The Honey N Tea Party Activities: included story time and a Scavenger Hunt. I wrote and created a personalized story book called the Honey N Tea Party Adventure. The story was about Pooh and his friends getting ready to go to a Honey N Tea Party where they must bring and share their favorite things. But Pooh and the Gang can not find their favorite things so they must get help from the Guests at the Tea Party( here I listed our actual Tea Party guests in the book!)

COUNTRY FUN WITH THE PRATT FAMILY !

Last weekend we had an amazing time coordinating the 2nd annual Pratt Family Reunion. The concept for this event was a Country Rustic picnic using Red and White plaid Gingham. And we got to use our favorite, yep Mason jars! for the centerpieces. Held at the historical Franklin Park Zoo along with a reception dance held at the Adam’s Inn Hotel this 2day event was loads of work but lots of fun! With family in attendance from all over the country, we were happy to see all the smiling  faces and fond memories that were being created. Activities ranged from our custom photo tree, a Spades and Whist Tournament, Basketball, Tennis and of course every southern family’s favorite the Electric slide! Check out our pictures below from this wonderful family event!

Venue Spotlight : Adams Inn Hotel

We had the opportunity to work with the amazing Adams Inn hotel for our latest event this past weekend.  The Adams Inn Hotel located in Quincy, Mass over looking the Neponset river, is one of the coziest hotels in the area, also near the cities most popular attractions. We utilizied the beautiful Quincy Room for our 60 person Red and White Reception Ball. The staff at Adams Inn Hotel were extremely friendly and very accomodating. Our event was fully equipped with a Rockin Dj and Photography Backdrop. Our guests were extremely pleased with the serene atmosphere of the hotel and enjoyed the delicous food provided by The Adams Cafe.  Event Coordinator Janet Batson was easy to work with and made all of our arrangements realistically possible. The hotel reservation specialist Valeria Wilkinson made it simple for our guests to reserve their rooms for the weekend, she even provided everyone with a special code to provide for booking. The hotel also offers a free shuttle service for guests to and from the airport. Which was great for all of our out of town guests. With amenities like their seasonal outdoor pool, fully equipped fitness center and the beautiful outdoor Gazebo, The Adams Inn Hotel is ideal for any Wedding, Special Event or Intimate function ! 

Take a sneak peek of our Pictures from the Red and White Ball at the Adams Inn!

Keys to Selecting the Perfect Venue!

So many people ask me do I know of any halls or places to host an event or function. A lot of times there are many options to host your event, but your not quite sure if the space is suitable for your needs or is within your budget. Here’s some insight on what to look for when selecting a place to hold your next special event!

Private or Public? That is the question!

Most event facilities are either privately owned properties or spaces that are open to the general public. Here are a few things to consider, when choosing either a public or private property for your function.

EVENT SPACE

What is a public event space you might ask? Typically public event spaces are your local Veterans post or any local community center. These places offer areas in their facilities for individuals to come in and hosts their private event. What I love most about public venues is they are very lenient when it comes to allowing you to decorate your event without restrictions such as using tape, balloons, confetti, etc. And the best part of public venues is that they allow you to provide your own food if you have decided not to use a caterer. Typically most public event spaces have a flat four hour event fee or a base hourly rate. One of the setbacks of public venues is that because they are public, and often times other things maybe going on during your event; that could be distracting or simply just take away from your event atmosphere. Typically there is no event staff so you’re responsible for the overall setup & cleanup. Things like untidiness, noise, or uncooperative staff are common complaints when using a public venue. If you do decide to go with a public venue be sure to that you arrive early to properly prepare and the venue has a clear understanding of your expectations. After all you are spending your money with them!

A private event space could be a beautiful hotel banquet hall or ballroom. Some restaurants & lounges offer event space, even bars or night clubs! Private venues are great because generally they have décor elements in their space, which you can work with for your own event. Private venues commonly provide linen, silverware and event staff to help you coordinate your event so you don’t have to. Most private venues have an in-house caterer, which is convenient but can also be very expensive. Providing catered food for your guests at a private venue could be anywhere from $4 -$15 per person. The great thing about private venues is that the staff and in-house planner have experience with hosting/planning events and they will work hard to provide and meet all your needs.
