Wedding and Event Planning Tips Los Angeles – My mom and dad loved to throw parties at our home. My parents owned a floral business, which was established in 1914 and for them entertaining was fun and enjoyable.
My mom loved setting the dinner tables with their china, crystal, fresh florals, along with their favorite Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis, Jr., tunes playing in the background. I loved to see the final look of the table decor with the flickering candles. Beautiful lighting was mesmerizing to me.
What I loved most about the parties were the guests. My parents had great friends that were fun to be around. My mom taught me that parties aren’t about being perfect, but being able to enjoy your own party. She would take time to plan details from the menu to beverages to her table settings.
Sometimes they had BBQs with everyone enjoying cocktails, while my father grilled steaks. Even then, my mother paid attention to detail with having the outdoor patio furniture set with colorful napkins, place settings along with flowers and votive candles. Everyone would arrive in their colorful summer outfits and she would offer them a libation upon their arrival.
My husband and I love hosting parties and having friends and family over to our home.
Since I love to plan events, it seemed natural when I was promoted while I was working for Game Show Network (GSN) to Director of Special Events and Trade shows.
There is nothing like a first impression when guests enter a party or wedding. I want them to be wowed. Wowing them is not about how much someone spends, but the style of the room or area, as well as the table setting and lighting.
