With the heart of winter upon us and many layered in blankets of snow here in the northeast, we totally understand your need to thaw your mind out with thoughts of surf, sand & sun. For this feat, we invite you to journey on over to our Event Escapes Pinterest board.
*In order really embrace this tropical paradise, may you be adventurous enough to put down that mug of hot cocoa and, instead, replace it with a cool, refreshing raspberry mojito and let your imagination wander to a destination of your choice. Remember the world is your oyster… (chili, lime and gin marinated oyster that is).
In the Palm of Your Hand
Ahhh, palm trees swaying in the breeze while you’re sipping on a Malibu Bay Breeze and admiring the tropical oasis you’ve just finished creating for your guests. You look to see the table is covered in palms, bright flower petals floating in fish bowls, and seashell place card holders. The leis are perfectly draped over the wooden chairs with each seat holding an ultimate beach swag bag. Go on, take another sip and soak it all in.
After catching one last wave, invite your guests to enjoy the catch of the day. For starters, take that shrimp off the barbie (Aussie lingo for those who choose the Land Down Under for your mental getaway), wrap a snow pea around it and add a splash of sweet chili sauce. Now, head on over to the taco station with a salsa bar and load up that plate. You may want to refresh your taste buds with one of the many 101 drink options before delving into the dessert. There’s always room for dessert especially when it’s a sandcastle cake!
I started my first company in 2010 in the midst of the down economy. By sharing content on Twitter, Facebook, and my blog, I gained expertise in the event planning industry and have become a leader and influencer. Thankfully, I've been named Top 25 Most Influential Event Planners in 2013, 40 Under 40 Up-and-Coming Event Planners in 2011, the #Eventprofs Most Thought Provoking Blog and People’s Choice Award. This created a platform for me to build my business and strong brand even further. Working with clients on events like Earn $100K Summit and S.H.E. Summit Week, I help entrepreneurs integrate technology into their events to better engage their attendees.
In addition to our client work, we also hosts our own events. As the founder of TechsyTalk and PlannerTech, I'm incredibly dedicated to educating fellow event professionals on how technology can enhance their events.
