Tips & Ideas


A ‘Hot’ Gift or Event Idea

If you’re considering a hot air balloon ride for a gift or event idea, be sure to do some research ahead of time.  Companies vary in the options they have available and how many passengers they can accommodate.  To be able to see out of the balloon, children must be over 44” tall.  Consider the fact that there are a number of steps going up to the balloon, so it may not be appropriate for some seniors or the physically challenged.  Weather is always a factor, so it’s a good idea to have a back-up date or plan.

Time for Dessert

Are you looking at a guest list that’s larger than your budget? Instead of a full meal, you may want to consider a dessert reception with a few specialty beverages. The presentation on desserts can be very impressive for the same cost of a minimal buffet.
Time your event for after dinner and treat your guests to a unique and elegant dessert
display. It can be a wise and exciting choice in tougher economic times.

Rediscover Disney

When considering destinations for your vacation, wedding, meeting or corporate incentive, don’t overlook all that Disney Vacations have to offer. Not just for kids anymore, Disney offers fabulous resorts with adults in mind and wonderful entertainment. What could be more romantic than a Cinderella wedding highlighted by evening fireworks! Companies are finding that employees and clients are inspired by Disney’s magic and imagination and appreciate the opportunity to combine meeting and family time.

Mind Your Manners

Manners and etiquette are always in good taste in any setting. Did you know that ladies should never wear a fashion hat after dark? It’s also important to make sure you are comfortable in proper fitting clothing. Nothing says ‘lack of self-confidence’ like “hiking up” a strapless top or gown in public. The rule is: Once you put it on, do not touch it again.” Also, if you’ll be attending an event with cultural differences, do some research before attending so as not to offend your host. And, never bring children to a formal event unless it is specifically noted on the invitation.
