The spring is the perfect time to grow your business or make way for new projects to get started.

Planning an event isn’t always a straightforward, linear progression. Unlike having to put furniture together, you won’t be able to find a manual with step-by-step instructions that take you from beginning to end.
However, you can still take on a more systematic and structured approach to tackle what needs to be done to ensure your event succeeds. Want to learn more?

CHOOSING A CORPORATE EVENT THEME
WORKING WITH AN EVENT CONSULTANT
Including a theme in your event is not as easy as it sounds. In the early days when I started my career in the 1990s, including an event theme meant renting palm trees, beach backdrops, and fake pineapples…
There is a common misconception that floats around in the event planning industry. Many people think that event planning is confusing or stressful, but planning a successful event…
When should you book your outdoor venue?
Your outdoor venue should be booked in January or February to secure just the right location. It’s always nice to book a green space that has a covered shelter with picnic tables. Lots of free parking is also something to consider, as well as transit friendly.
How do you decide which theme to include?
Your theme should be communicated to the audience months before the event occurs. Choosing a theme is like sewing. Once you have selected your theme, weave it like a thread through from the Save The Date to the Invitation, to the Agenda to the Menu. And then at the event, serve up the theme like caviar!
What makes a winning outdoor event?
When an award-winning outdoor event checks off all of the boxes, you know that you have a winning theme. During the design process, you can feel it. The excitement builds as you start to tie in the theme to the food, entertainment and activities. It’s hard to describe the feeling, but as a seasoned event producer, you can feel it all coming together.
Event planning tip from an event expert
What are the two most important things to do when planning your outdoor event?
1. Venue – select the perfect outdoor space for your group’s needs. Every group has different priorities, so make sure the amenities make sense for your event.
2. Entertainment / Activities – most people think that the food and theme are the most important items when planning an outdoor event, but they are wrong. People who attend the event want to be entertained, so make sure to have your agenda timing on point and have a wide variety of activities that appeal to all age groups.
Event Audits are all the Rage!
There are so many types of outdoor events that can be planned and there are an equal number of mistakes that can be made. Having produced thousands of events in my career and made a huge number of mistakes over the years, I am ready to share my knowledge and experience on how to avoid having issues at your summer events.
The best way to start the process is to give us a call and talk about what you have planned. Immediately, we will know that you are either on the right path or need some guidance to get back on track.
Something that is really catching on in our business is having an Event Audit performed on your current event plans. We review your contracts, vendor agreements, entertainment plan, budgets, etc. and offer you an Event Audit report. From there we discuss the best next steps for your event! See how easy it is?!
See you next month,
Til then, enjoy the outdoors.
