The client in question wanted us to do something extra special, something really over the top, for his wife's surprise birthday party. We knew that we could achieve a stunning yet elegant ambiance through the the combination of our own natural menu of organically-grown foods and an organic environment that brought the natural world to the forefront.
What did we do to accomplish this? First, we were going to be seating 26 guests around a single outdoor table, so we used that table to help everyone connect with each other and with nature. A lush collection of floral centerpieces, dominating a tablecloth of real lemon leaf, created a serene, captivating dining environment. A flowered chandelier helped to ensure that beauty surrounded the participants everywhere they looked. We even used lamp posts that doubled as heating units, a comfortable addition to a potentially chilly California evening. And of course the fact that all of our dishes consisted of natural, organically-grown ingredients only enhanced the overall feeling of freshness and life. The client's wife was so moved by all of this lavish attention to detail that she cried.
That's the true power of event planning by Events Etc. A successful social event requires more than just great food -- it should engage all of the senses. That's why we look beyond the menu at all of the small but critical extras that make an event an EVENT. We're creating more than a dinner or celebration, after all -- we're creating memories that will last a lifetime.
