Our Favorite Ideas from the Year!
As we take a moment to look back over the year, we felt the need to reflect on the more important things in life…..the art of celebration! We take pride in creating special moments and unforgettable memories for our clients. In between the hours when the world moves at two speeds, fast and faster, we love giving people a reason to come together and celebrate life! Here are a list of trends, tips and lessons we picked up over the past year. We hope you’re able to incorporate them into your own events!

The most impactful thing that stuck in my mind from this year was a video I was sent regarding Socialnomics. Really changed the way I look at social media and marketing! SpotMe, is great! Love new technology that benefits our industry! And as a new iPad owner, check out The Photo Cookbook App!
Loved this great birthday party concept I came across this year. In a small tent, guests are invited to take a seat (in a luxurious chair of course!) in front of a mirror and send out your birthday wishes to the birthday girl. Your words will be captured, translated into script and projected throughout the party on various video screens. So cool!

Aside from red wine, I only need two things in my life, donuts & pop tarts. Prior to 2010, I’d only eat the sweet variety, but now? Savory changed my life! 🙂 I loved selling the savory donut & pop tart stations this year. Imagine a parmesan infused fried dough, topped with spinach dust and dunked in spicy Arrabiata sauce. Oh yeah! Or a shepherd’s pie in flaky pastry dough finished with a parsnip mash “frosting”?!

From our family to yours, Happy New Year and Welcome 2011!!!!
