Backyard Tent Wedding

Backyard Wedding on the Long Island Sound

Event Recap: Simple Backyard Wedding 
Long Island Sound
Event Kings

We Designed and Coordinated a Wedding for a Beautiful Couple from Colorado a few weeks ago.

They wanted something simple and rustic, but most of all they wanted to have a blast!

They also wanted to have their ceremony and reception in their family's backyard, that just so happened to be on the Long Island Sound- which provided a beautiful backdrop.

The centerpieces were modest and very beachy. We used drift wood that the couple found on their property and incorporated it into the table decor with succulents, greenery and a touch of cream and pale pink flowers. Even their cake was decorate with simple greenery.

We created a beautiful Arch  that the Couple got married under with Curly Willow that framed the view of the Sound. 

Guests were also greeted and directed around the property by vintage style signs on drift wood and pieces of old wood accompanied by over sized Lanterns.

We dressed up the Backyard by framing the dance floor with large bulb rope lights draped from birch poles. This added an amazing glow to the atmosphere throughout the evening.

As you can see- the view was absolutely gorgeous. As the sun set- the Newlyweds exchanged vows, and then guests were invited to the Tent to eat a fantastic dinner by Elegant Eating.

It truly was an amazing evening- and a very unique wedding. We loved working with this couple and their families- and wish them nothing but the best!

The Benefits of Team Building

Team building is a job technique in which employees are viewed as members of interdependent teams instead of as individual workers.  Team building is used to increase trust, communication, problem-solving skills and of course, team development.  At Event Kings, we do so many unique team building events with companies of various sizes with one thing in common – everyone always has a blast!

When we are producing a team building event, we work closely with the organization to create activities that will perfectly fit their company culture and get all of their employees excited and motivated.

Studies have shown that team building can immeasurably boost employee performance and productivity in the work place.  Here at Event Kings, we truly believe in the importance of working with a team and being in a positive work environment.   

One exciting team building event we did was an Olympic style boat building race over the summer.  We had employees break into teams and each team had to work together to build their own boat and then they had to race them.
These employees learned in an exciting and fun way, how teams can assist them in dealing with issues they encounter everyday; such as managing limited resources, constrained budgets, and work delegation.
Team building events are a unique way to boost a company's team morale and maximize team efficiency. The opportunities for team building activities are endless with Event Kings because we can personalize everything to your needs! 

Check out our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages to see the types of activities we have produced.

Trade Shows: A Fresh Look

Trade Shows

A Fresh Look

At Event Kings, Trade Shows are one of our favorite types of events to produce.  A trade show is basically an organized exhibit  for companies in a specific industry to showcase and demonstrate their products or services.

These events can be fairly mundane and generic on their own, but with the help of Event Kings, we can liven it up and get every guest involved and excited to be there.  Each year we produce numerous trade shows that everyone loves because we give each show an exciting and unique theme.

Last week, for a food show for a supermarket chain with stores all over the Tri-State area, we chose an amazing Arabian Nights theme .  We picked a color scheme of teal, purple and gold. We set up a beautiful Arabian Nights scene for guests to take photos with exciting performers such as a snake charmer, sword swallower, contortionist and an Arabian stilt walker.
Putting a theme to an event and adding these little touches, enhances the whole trade show experience!
In addition to all of the fun the guests and vendors had - we did do some good as well. For this food show, we partnered our client and Long Island Food Bank, Island Harvest together so at the end of the event, vendors are able to donate their surplus of food to Island Harvest's food rescue and delivery program. 



According to Island Harvest, we donated 7,089 pounds of food to the organization which supplemented 5,907 meals all over Long Island. 




Event Kings is so proud to have taken part in such a major, meaningful contribution and to give back to our Long Island community.

Event Recap: Winter Wonderland

Event Recap: Winter Wonderland
A Snowy Sweet Sixteen

The perfect theme for a January Sweet Sixteen in New York is Winter Wonderland. With all the snow we've been receiving lately, the theme seemed a natural choice.

Snow, Snow & More Snow
We kept everything Clean and White- with White Striped Linens, White Napkins, White Chivari Chairs, and White Lounge Furniture for the Kids.

We projected Huge Snowflake Gobo On the Wall And Throughout the Room.

The Centerpieces were a mix of Tall White Birch Branches dripping in Crystals and smaller Floral Pieces with Dusty Miller, Pine Cones, and Crystal Branches. We sprinkled the base of the centerpieces with faux snow and crystals.

Our Biggest Winter Spotlight was the Snow Machine. As Guest entered the room they walked through beautiful white snowflakes floating down on their heads. 

Candy Station
I know my favorite part of an Event is the Candy Station. We kept the Candy Station true to our Wintery Theme. All the Candy was White, Silver and Blue. As the guest departed, they were offered a container to take home a delicious candy favor. Whats better than Air Heads, Lollipops, Candy Ribbons, and Rock Candy?

Snowflake Seating Cards
Instead of the plain old seating card table, we put a wintery spin on it. We put each guests name and table assignment on a paper snowflake and hung them from white draping, along with an abundance of glittery snowflakes.

We even created a custom guest sign in book- of course with a wintery print and icicles on each page. Even the Cake had Snowflakes!

It was a truly beautiful Event. As a New Yorker we all look at snow as a pain to shovel and commute to work. But this event was a refreshing reminder of the beauty of snow and the winter.
