We’re Loving Themed Events

As we mentioned in our previous post, Event Planning Trends to Watch, themed parties continue to increase in popularity. As event planners, we're loving this trend and so are the guests!

There's really so much that can be done to make a themed party stand out and fun - you can be as creative as you want. They are great for social events, such as birthday parties for both children and adults, weddings, fundraisers and galas.

Themes we're in love with currently include time-period themed parties like the Roaring 20s or Downton Abbey; Las Vegas style casino night; story book themed parties, such as James and the Giant Peach, Peter Rabbit or any of the books by Dr. Seuss. We also love milestone birthdays with scotch and cigars or champagne and cake; Mardi Gras or whimsical themed affairs, such as circuses, festivals or state fairs. We're also also seeing board game themed parties for children and those adults who are children at heart - favorites include Monopoly and Candy Land. Really, the sky is the limit. 

Recently, we planned a themed bridal shower for one of our clients who wanted a tea party themed event in Washington, DC. So, what did we do? We turned her vision into an unforgettable event. 

We picked the Tabard Inn because of its storied history and antique decor

One of our favorite gift ideas from the shower, a basket filled with bottles of wine for each milestone.

The client wanted a single long table for her tea party with lush white and green flowers to adorn the table.
