Thankfulness Campaign

To me, November has always marked a difficult moment in the seasons up here in New England. The cold of winter starts to really settle over us. It gets darker earlier – and many of us realize that we’re in our offices for much of the daylight hours. Getting outside now requires a jacket, and […]

Grab a cigar, and hit the bar!

My love of event planning is magnified when a birthday comes around. I always love helping to throw a birthday party, and without a doubt, I love to throw surprise parties for my loved ones. This month, my husband turned 30 – and, of course, we had to celebrate him. Over the past few years, […]

Wedding Week

I know I’ve talked about this on the blog before, but after a busy September filled with a lot of brides, I think it’s time to revisit it. The week of a wedding is stressful, emotional, and busy. It can get overwhelming. Your vendors have last minute questions. A lot of payments are due. There […]

It’s like rain on your wedding day

Not sure if we should dive into how ironic it would be, BUT, it is something to be aware of. A wedding I attended recently was held in a beautiful tent on the coast. The couple got lucky – the rain held off and the breeze wasn’t bad, but it got me thinking of weather […]

Center of Attention

Of all of the details of your wedding day, center pieces often become the center of attention. Throughout the day, your guests are moving, greeting, dancing. But for over an hour, your guests are stationary at a seat. Whether you’re serving brunch of a 5 course dinner, your center pieces become the center of attention. […]

Bathroom Baskets

A September bride was talking with me about bathroom baskets – and it was then that I realized that a bride may never see the other side of it, so now wonder she asked: Do you make a basket for the men’s room? The answer is yes. While I firmly believe gender neutral bathrooms should […]

Work Wife

Losing your work-spouse is truly a tragic event. While you’re so excited for the opportunity that lies ahead of them, it’s devastating to lose your coffee-run bud, commiseration partner, and just the brightest part of your day at work. Throwing a going away party at your office is a bit of a different vibe than […]

Recentering

The last few months have been hectic, busy, fun, and maybe also overwhelming. Being away almost every weekend for events, functions, and just for other people, has been a beautifully exhausting way to spend the first half of the summer. Packing, driving, chaos, driving, not un-packing. Then doing it all again! Between a busy social […]

Dancing in the rain

For the past few months I’ve been helping a Maid of Honor finalize plans for her sister’s bachelorette weekend. The MOH is so sweet and wants the weekend to be absolutely perfect. As with anything, though, there are some things that are just outside of your control. In this case, it’s the weather. While the […]
