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 🙂

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!
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.
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 🙂
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 ?
Now that you are fully equipped with whats what for weddings in 2o14, planning your wedding should be a little less stressful and a bit more fun. For more helpful tips, resources or suggestions for your wedding day schedule a personal consultation with our event design team!

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!
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!
We draped the table with Creepy little Creatures and Spider Webs! Whats Halloween without a couple of insects to make your skin crawl!
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!!!
For signature Cocktail drinks we served our Special Guests, True Blood and Eye Ball Margarita’s YUM!!!
For an extra little something, something we decided to add BATS as chair caps for each guests seat. Another event Trick as a Treat for our friends 🙂
We had and amazing time planning this gathering for our friends and family. Halloween is absolutely one of favorite holidays!

HAPPY HAUNTING EVERYONE
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!
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!

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!
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.
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.
