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 🙂

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!

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 ?

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

 For signature Cocktail drinks we  served our Special Guests,  True Blood and Eye Ball Margarita’s  YUM!!!
