  • Fresh and new Christmas party ideas (to surprise your guests!)

    We love the new and unusual, and Christmas time is the right time to try out something different.  Everyone can have the usual boring Christmas party, but don't you want to surprise your guests with something better?  Might we suggest four fresh ideas to wake up your event...

    indoor snow storm

    Bring in a snow machine to make it an actual White Christmas.  At the Conrad Hilton Miami, the snowstorm was indoors!  Who knew it could snow in Florida...

    life size snow globe

    Create a life-size snow globe for guests to take photos in.  It could even be made into an enclosed photo booth or selfie station!

    rentals beer garden table

    Looking for some European charm?  A beer garden theme is an easy and inexpensive party idea.  Just bring in tables, checkered linens, and a local brewery for an event every guy is sure to love.

    french dessert table

    And speaking of Europe... Marie Antoinette would be proud of this dessert spread.  If you're looking for a more elegant type affair, go for a French theme and add on an extravagant table like this one.  A grandeur (and delicious) table like this won't be forgotten!

    Which idea would you like at your next party?

    giving back party ideas

    elves giving out gifts -- charity events

    The holidays are an important time to give back.  We love the idea of adding to your holiday event with a charitable element.  In your invitation, suggest guests bring a children's gift, non-perishable food, or item of clothing.  

    One company that took this theme and ran with it was Groupon.  Last year they partnered with Operation Warm to provide new winter coats for underprivileged children.  Local families were welcomed with free coats and the children were excited when personalized gifts were distributed by costumed elves.  

    A charitable party just happens to be our speciality, and we would love to help you create something new and different for your next event.  Contact us today!

  • Gift wrapping tips to squash your decorating doldrums ~

    sleigh full of presents

    Your holiday shopping may be over but there's still work to do!  While wrapping gifts can be a chore (and also a bore) we have some ideas to squash your decorating doldrums…

    Choose a palette and stick with it -- Keeping it cohesive will make your gifts look elegant and uniform.

    Color-Coded Wrapping -- Each recipient gets their one paper, that way there's no need for gift tags but they’re still nice to add!

    Make Bows from Leftover Paper -- An inexpensive way to make your wrapping look modern and fresh.

    Make a Box Tower --  Stack three or more boxes and tie a ribbon on top to group similar gifts together.
