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!

Summer’s Not Over…. Yet!

 Lately I’ve been hearing alot of people say “Oh, Summer’s Over…”. Simply because the temperature has dropped a few degrees doesnt mean Summer is over just yet! With a few exciting projects in the very near future, and Labor Day just around the corner, there’s still a LOT to celebrate this season.  Recently we have been making some connections with some great new people in our area. We will be working with a unique new company called Cupcake Domination located right  here in Mattapan, for some tasty custom cupcake creations!  We also have built a new relationship with My Personal Florist , an amazing Floral designer based out of Reading, Mass.  We at S.H.E. Event Planning can not wait to team up with these  two companies to create our next event masterpiece! Stay Tuned for our next event  update and in the mean time here’s a Little Labor Day Eventspiration!

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!

Descions Descions….

S.H.E. Event Planning is gearing up for an upcoming 3 day Family Reunion! One of the events for this Reunion is A Red and White reception Ball for friends and family.  As we get closer and closer to the event, its time to make some final descions on what centerpiece concepts to create for this elegant affar. I have narrowed it down to three centerpiece ideas but Im still struggling with how to combine each concept into one Unique centerpiece. Maybe you can help me! Here are the designs  I would like to recreate and combine. Feel free to leave any ideas or suggestions you may have.  Thanks in advanced 🙂

rose-wedding-centerpieces-1 I love this floral water design, but we are not able to use buring candles at the venue site. Any ideas for candle subsitutions.  Wondering if LED candles would give off the same affect?

rose bulbLove these single rose Buds! Absolutely adorable!

ocean bowl rose  I have a dozen of these fish bowl vases I would like to use for my centerpieces.  Wondering how I could create height with my floral arrangement without taking away from the vase itself. Or should i submerge my flowers in water?

How to Plan the Perfect Outdoor Party!

Summer’s Here! Time to break out those old dusty lawn chairs and the patio furniture you have so deserted since last year. With temperatures on the rise now and the cool night breeze as a  luxury, now  is the best time to Host the perfect outdoor party to Kickoff the rest of the season!

I’ve had the pleasure of hosting a couple of outdoor backyard party’s over the years. Outdoor parties are great really for any occasion,  from a Texas Style BBQ, Kiddie Birthdays, or even celebrating a Graduation.  But we all know planning any event even outdoors can be a disaster waiting to happen. But we don’t want that !

So Here’s a few rules to help you pull off the perfect outdoor shindig that will have your guest raving about it from now till next year!

Rule #5.  PLAN AHEAD, AT ALL TIMES!

When deciding to host an outdoor event please plan accordingly.  Make sure the outdoor space you are using for the party suits your party needs. No one wants to attend a party in your grandfathers junk yard. Any outdoor area should be cleaned and properly prepared prior to your guests arrival.  That way you can greet and enjoy your guests, and be a fun, attentive hostess.  Also be sure to have a rain date in place, just incase mother nature decides to shed some tears or maybe worse!

Rule #4.  Inviting your Guests

Inviting your guests is extremely important to the success of your party. Invite people who don’t mind bringing a few snacks or drinks to the party. This will help save time and money while taking  some of the burden off of you, and keep you from having to prepare so much food. Having a specific menu in place will help you stay on track and keep you from constantly adding more food to prepare.  Also make sure to invite fun, outgoing, people who help bring life to your party! NO PARTY POOPERS ALLOWED!

fun people

Rule#3.  Ambiance and Atmosphere

Creating a comfortable ambiance and atmosphere is the most important part of your outdoor gathering. Try thinking of a specific theme or style concept you want to create for your outdoor party. You can do things like send out coordinating invitations, listing a specific dress code for your event. For example if you know you want to have a grown’ n sexy yard party with a lounge feel, saying things like “Garden Style Chic Attire is strongly suggested”, this will reinforce your party theme and get people talking about this exciting Chic garden party they are  going to! Even adding simple items like candles or soft plush pillows add a little something to any outdoor area.

Helpful little hint  anytime someone has to buy a new outfit to go to an event, they know its going to be good.

Rule# 2. Breaking the Ice

When people host gatherings, they invite friends, co-workers, neighbors, and close family members, often times these different groups of people don’t know each other and stay in their own social bubble, off to the side by themselves. Break the Ice  and get people mixing and mingling. Introduce your various guests to each other, bring up topics that will spark a conversation between two people or more who may have something in common. But nothing gets people talking like a Signature Drink! Another piece of creating ambiance having a colorful tasty signature drink to your menu adds to your event theme. Its, fun and usually gets people talking about how creative you are. And remember they don’t have to be alcoholic just refreshing to drink!

Now that you have your ammo for executing the perfect outdoor party. All there is left to do is get this party started!

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.
