Event Tip of the Week

10:42 AM

Event Tip:
Post Holiday- Holiday Events

It's that time of the year that companies are planning their Holiday Parties. It is a mad rush from now until December 23rd- And you could use a little stress free help from Event Planners.


Event Tip: Plan your Holiday Party for after the New Year.

Reason:
  - Your guests will be able to enjoy the party more that the Holiday Craziness is OVER.
  - Prices are way cheaper in January, and you are more likely to get more for your money.
  - After the Holidays are over, and it is just winter with nothing to look forward to- this will brighten everyone's attitude


Now, we know you all wouldn't like a Holiday Party in January-

So for those last minute planners, there are still some great venues with open dates & we can help you plan the rest of your event to make your company's Holiday Party the talk of the year!

Call us- Only a few more weeks left of the Holiday Madness!!

Biggest Wedding Day of the Year

Whether you are into Numerology, Mathematics or just Superstitious- 11/11/11 is a strangely important day.
Besides it being Veterans Day- it has also become the Biggest Wedding Day of the Year.

According to The Knot- there are over 24,000 Weddings planned for 11/11/11.



In Numerology, 11/11 is a Power Number and has many positive attributes, such as; Emotional Intensity, Passion, Compassion, Sensitivity and Harmony.

With all those good characteristics, its no wonder why so many Brides & Grooms chose this day to tie the knot.


While our floral division-- King Lily Floral-- prepares for the wedding we have booked on 11/11/11, thousands of other Brides, Grooms, Event Planners, and Florists are applying the finishing touches to their wedding plans.



 Chapels in Las Vegas are advertising specials for this day Left & Right. ABC News 20/20 is even taping a segment of couples getting married on 11/11/11 at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel!  Check out their blog for post about weddings they do http://blog.vivalasvegasweddings.com/


Since 11 is also a BIG gambling number-- Las Vegas sounds like the perfect place to get hitched and play a little Black Jack on the lucky day 11/11/11.


Or you could just use Event Kings- We have everything from the Floral Division, to the Casino Division, to Planning the entire thing! And a lot closer than Vegas.

Dance Party for Parkinsons: Zumbathon
Team Fox


 Members of Team Fox, Beth Hochstein and Sharon Greif, headed the Zumbathon on October 23rd 2011. Event Kings helped Coordinator the Event and provided Balloon Decor.  After helping Team Fox at their previous event at Pacha in May, we were more than thrilled to donate our services.




In 2006 the Michael J. Fox Foundation created Team Fox, a group where members and leaders of the Foundation can find new and different ways to raise money for research on Parkinson's Disease. Members of Team Fox have raised over $12 Million since the group was launched.   

Here is a picture of our very own Steven Vogel & Catherine Cannizzaro with Team Fox Leader, Beth Hochstein. 



Open to the public, guest entered and were greeted with Team Fox water bottles. The first room they entered was filled with Vendors selling items such as, hand bags, cupcakes, jewelery and more; a percentage of their proceeds were donated to the foundation. Sponsors such as FUZE and Reddi Care Physical Therapy, giving out free Drinks & Massages. 



Then the fun starts. After Beth gave a speech, several Zumba Instructors started the Dance Party. Guests danced/ exercised along with the instructors for 2 hours. 

 
100% of ticket sales went directly to  The Michael J. Fox Foundation.We were truly honored to be a part of this Event and look forward to the next one.
