We realize it’s only January, but we’re already immersed in summer planning and really loving what’s coming up this year. There are some new trends to be on the lookout for (balloon walls!) and a few not so new ones we hope stick around (all the candles!), and as we begin a new season, we can’t help but think back to some of the standout events from the previous one. We worked a little over 200 events last summer, which adds up to A LOT of wonderfully unique moments. Creative event themes were a big deal last year, and one that stands out as an overall favorite was an epic birthday bash, Viking style.

As huge fans of the TV show The Vikings, our clients wanted to transform their yard into a scene from the hit show, complete with animal pelts, skulls, and lots and lots of fire. They thoroughly enjoy hosting a good party, so needless to say, the bar was set high and we were more than up for the challenge. We delivered the dinner party of their dreams and had a blast doing it.
