Tips & Ideas

Mind Your Manners

-Tip From Carey Sue Vega, Etiquette Expert

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.


Naurally Delicious!

-Tip from Gail Murchis( Something to Remember)

When shopping around for a caterer, don’t be shy about asking how the food is prepared, especially if they use natural ingredients or if some or all of the meal is prepackaged and/or frozen. Your guests will know the difference. Nothing says you care like the unmistakable difference of home-made and wholesome-made meals.


All Inclusive

Planning a family reunion, group or corporate destination event?  Consider the advantages of an all inclusive experience on a cruise ship or all inclusive resort.  Great accommodations, food, and entertainment are built into the price, and often result in considerable savings than if booked and purchased separately.  And most resorts and cruise ships have amazing state of the art conference facilities for your group’s activities.

Sitting Pretty!

-Tip from Dorinda Chapman, (Pink Petal Linens)

If you’re considering renting chair covers for your event, be sure to ask the rental service if their chairs covers fit the chairs at your venue. There is a huge variety of sizes and types of ballroom chairs and folding chairs – even the metal ones. Better yet, request a chair cover sample and try it on for size just to be sure.
