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.

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.
