Growing & Going Green!!!

Environmentally sustainable events are becoming more and more of a hot topic within the event planning industry. I must admit that my company is not a certified "green" company, but I am becoming more conscious of the products and services that I utilize for my events. Now, I know that most of you are wondering how can you make an event more green. Well, there are many ways. Some of the ways that you can make your event greener is by having organic menu options, using sustainable decor, using recyclable invitations, using eco-friendly decoration, and by recycling and composting of waste. There are so many more ways that a planner can make an event green. I have vowed that I will try to be more eco-conscious in my planning which will start by learning more about environmentally sustainable products. Let's all try to do our part!

The Backdrop for Any Occasion!

One of the things that clients will ask me about when doing a themed party is how to recreate the atmosphere. Of course, decorations will be used for the tables and sometimes ceilings, but they do not always provide the overall presentation of the theme. One additional way to add character to an event is by using backdrops. Most people think of backdrops being only used in the theater and movie industries, but they are used quite often for events as well. A backdrop can add that extra flair to a party or gala like no other decoration. There are many companies, such as BackdropsBeautiful, which offer designs for any occasion. Whether it be a Hollywood themed party with a red carpet surrounded by paparazzi or a Winter Wonderland themed soiree, backdrops can add that extra umph to any event. So the next time you are looking to add some background flair to your event, check out a backdrop!
