IT’S ALL ABOUT THE LIGHTING

October 30, 2014

Lighting tends to be an area that people overlook while planning their special occasion. While it doesn’t always get the most hype, we think it should. Here are a few reasons we think you should give the lighting category a little bit more love…

Lighting effects the overall aesthetic and mood of your event. Harsh lighting can make a room feel cold and uncomfortable where as the right amount and color can make a world of a difference. Your lighting will have a bigger effect on your guests experience than you think.

Lighting enhances the decor and can bring the room to life. Whether you are in a ballroom or outdoors, the right amount of lighting can draw your guests attention to the right places. This could be pin spots on your gorgeous centerpieces or any other areas of the room you want to highlight, including a focal bar, a backdrop or the dance floor.

Lighting can be your decor. Not only can lighting enhance the decor at your event, but a gobo, string lights or chandeliers can act as a design element and a light source.

Remember you don’t have to spend a fortune on lighting to make an impact!

GOOGLE CITY EXPERTS

October 23, 2014

Today we are sharing with you the inside scoop on an event we planned for Google this Fall. This event was designed to create a fun and interactive environment to celebrate the Google City Experts. 1776 was the perfect backdrop for this event and it allowed us to bring in decor and florals to play off of the industrial and organic look. We wanted to keep the food and beverage local so we brought in Union Kitchen and Stone Tower Winery to cater the event. Guests were also able to experience the slow motion video booth {one of our personal favorites} and The Haiku Guys. If you have yet to hear about these guys, you need to check them out! Thank you to our vendors who helped bring together a fabulous and entertaining environment for Google to thank their Google City Experts!
