  • Event Spotlight: Annie Oakley Society Luncheon

    We hold the Annie Oakley Society close to our hearts at Eventures because our own Mary Ellen Alexander is one of their founding members, while our President, Whitney Tatum, is on the Little Sure Shot Leadership Team. They dedicate their time and effort to this wonderful and giving society that benefits educational programs for the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. 

    Mary Ellen shares her passion for the society with us, "I was extremely honored to be asked to be a founding member and a part of the Annie Oakley Leadership Team. Being a part of this fundraiser knowing all the money is focused on building an educational experience for all is amazing!

    This society's goal is to celebrate strong women and their achievements. One of Annie Oakley's famous quote, "Aim High and Dream Big," was displayed on screens at the Luncheon to remind guests; they can do anything if they put their mind to it. Mary Ellen pushes this motto on our team because she started with a dream and has transformed that dream into the ever growing Eventures!


    This year's event design was inspired by a Chanel Spring Runway show. The stage displayed white cutouts of palm trees giving the event a fresh, tropical vibe. The elegant blush draping brought the strong femininity that all of the Annie Oakley Society's members possess, while the white details of the linens and table setting kept it modern and bright.

  • Christmas Bells are Ringing...in July!

    It is never to early to start thinking about the Holidays. You heard that right! Despite the heat of summer in full swing, Eventures is already planning for Holiday Parties, in July that is!

    When you think of Holiday Parties what normally comes to mind is the traditional red and green decorations, right? At Eventures, we like to step outside the box to create unique and unexpected looks to beat the ordinary.

    Check out some of our favorite past Holiday parties that will have you in the Holiday spirit!


    Merry & Bright

    This whimsical theme brought out the inner "kid on Christmas morning" in everyone who attended. The colorful décor brightened up this space, while still providing pops of green and red to tie in the traditional Christmas colors. Slinkies wrapped around Christmas trees in place of ornaments for a fun alternative, and they hung from the ceiling, springing this party to life!


    Christmas on Broadway

    Broadway presents: Your Christmas Party! This theme brought an elegant and classy vibe through blush and neutral colors, but still kept holiday elements in mind when it came to design. Ruched stage draping and chair covers brought Broadway charm along with musical note detailing throughout the room. Ornament décor gave this glamorous motif sparkle and shine for this company's star employees. 



    Christmas at the Lodge

    This cozy Christmas theme transported guests to a warm, enchanting cabin during the cold winter season. Plaid table linens tied in red and greens, and we couldn't help but think of those pajamas many of us had as kids...or still have! The final touch? Hot cocoa for everyone!



    Classic Christmas

    While having a unique theme can be fun, "Classic Christmas" can be just as memorable. For this event, traditional green and gold accents kept it simple and polished. Ornament bulbs, Christmas trees, and velvet furniture gave this party the Classic Christmas feel that everyone can enjoy.

  • Incorporating the 5 Senses Into Your Event

    Touch, sight, sound, taste, and smell. We use them every day without realizing it. Eventures also uses the five senses to create memorable events!

    Take a look at how we incorporated the 5 sense into this recent event! 


    Touch

    Different textured linens and chair covers appealed to guests' sense of touch while they enjoyed conversation and the event presentation. 



    Sight

    This geometric display added depth and dramatic lighting to the stage. Paired with draping and larger than life screens, this stage had an impressive impact!



    Sound 

    The band performed in the center of the room which gave emphasis to this sense with a "surround sound" experience.



    Taste

    Guests were provided with a dessert that was both visually alluring and delicious to eat. A special treat is always a great way to appeal to your guests' taste buds!



    Smell 

    Low scent flowers were used to maintain a light but pleasant aroma during this simple, yet elegant event. You can punch up your guests' interaction with this sense through fragrant flowers or the aroma of a delectable dinner!



     Whether you're planning a social party, corporate event, or fabulous wedding, the design team at Eventures is ready to delight the senses at your next event!

  • Comfortable Guests + Beautiful Settings = The Perfect Summer Soiree

    When it comes to planning the perfect summer soiree, it's so important to focus on guest comfort and creating a beautiful and fun space.

    There are lots of great ways to keep your guests happy such as using a shaded space, bringing in an outdoor air conditioner, and using lovely, relaxing furniture.



    Providing an outdoor lounge area for your guests is a great way to keep them content in the summer heat.



    Lighting is an essential part of setting an ambiance for your outdoor event. Bistro bulbs are perfect for adding soft light to light up the summer night sky.



    Creating a small display of candles serves as both a decoration and a functional light piece.
