Every Friday I round up my favorite blog posts, articles, instagrams, photo shoots etc. that have to do with the events industry/event and party planning.

So let's get started, shall we...


The Craziest Splurges Wedding Planners have EVER Seen, Brit+Co

I know for sure that one of the big splurges for my future wedding is going to be the band, but who ever thought people splurge for things like real snow, hand delivered invitations, and custom flooring?? In this article from Brit+Co, wedding planners dish on the craziest splurges they've ever seen.


Giant Stickers Photo Booth Backdrop, Oh Happy Day

Photo Booths have become one of the biggest trends in the events industry. I have seen so many different backdrops - from sparkles to balloons to flowers - but never one made out of giant stickers. How cute is this photo booth from Oh Happy Day? Head over to their site for the free download!


An Easy (And Impressive) Brunch Table Platter, A Pair & a Spare

Ditch the individual platters and try out this dreamy table from A Pair & a Spare. I think community tables should be used way more often in events - not only is it easy to put together but I think it is an incredibly unique and modern idea. 


Best New Pool Floats for Summer 2016, Sugar & Cloth

Okay so technically this doesn't have to do with events, but what if you're throwing a pool party? If so, floats are must! I still need to order my swan float (made famous by my girl Taylor Swift), but Sugar & Cloth has compiled some other adorable float options.

Not that I need anymore excuses to throw a party, but the Venue Report has 7 great reasons throwing a party is good for you health which I think are SO true. My favorite reason out of the 7? That stress can actually be good for you. Yes, you read that right. Check out their article to learn more.
