When it comes to saving venue money, there is no place like home. Your office or home turf is a wonderful venue to sell and entertain clients. It can be transformed in ways you may not initially imagine.
If an office or home turf transformation is not your vision, then consider other low cost public building options. Good options include:
- Fire company banquet halls
- community centers
- schools and community colleges
The venue availability and rental rates vary by entity.
VFW, Elks, Knights of Columbus or other civic groups may offer their event space for rental.
Let us not forget the great outdoors as an event venue. Perhaps it is the backyard of a private residence, a public flower garden or park that excites you.
In my blog – How to Creatively Control Your Party Expenses – you’ll learn that planning and flexibility, yields the greatest percent off discounts. Pay close attention to the amenities and unique features offered by your chosen venue. Try to emphasize them in your event plans.
Your home, office or outdoor venue may be transformed via the services of event planners, decorators and party rental service providers. Choose either of these venues and you’ll certainly take a large bite out of your event budget.
If end-to-end event savings are what’s needed, then contact an available event manager. I like The Party ReduX in Pottstown.

Your New Year’s resolution to save money is in plain sight on the refrigerator.
Your football pool off-season has begun.
You now have time and energy to think creatively about your 2017 anniversary, wedding reception, or graduation party. Controlling your expenses is key. Right?
Well, by planning and staying flexible, the opportunity to capture the greatest percent off discounts can come under these circumstances.
For example, think creatively about your wedding reception:
- off-season (plan your nuptial January through March rather than the peak May-June or Oct-Nov periods)
- off-time (a Sunday reception rather than the $$prime Friday and Saturday time slots)
- off-prime locales (look at venues on the urban edge or new to market, rather than stand in the long lead-time line for the $$$hot venue)
This same creative thought process can be applied to your anniversary, graduation, baby shower, product launch, etc. event.

WOW! What a marriage proposal. Time to tell everyone, and particularly your family about your engagement.
Should you change your Facebook status? YES! Tweet it, Snapchat and send an Instagram? YES!
Should we throw an engagement party? YES!
Why? Simply because some messages are best delivered in person. Get your hugs and hand out the tissues for those tears of joy. Hand out the champagne bubbles and get those high fives…in person.
In planning the engagement party, do you contact Your Event Specialist? Y.E.S.
In a previous blog, I’ve advised engaged couples to utilize the services of an event and rental specialist. You can take advantage of a wider array of event resources, rentals and have access to the latest trends. You can take the guess work out of what works and what does not.
If you need professional event help, then first seek family referrals. Secondly, go online and see what other couples have said in the reviews. Finally, deliver your needs in person or call a choice event and party rental specialist.
Engagement Party? Y.E.S.!

Over breakfast with a friend who caters, we discussed bride & groom-to-be decisions concerning food. He shared a thought in a very interesting way. Namely, that caterers must have the “talent to meet the palate”.
In an age on online searches, it’s sometime difficult for a busy couple to find additional time for caterer meetings. Yet this meeting can be essential for assessing the talent of a caterer. It’s not just their experience, but their experience gained preparing the food you particularly desire. For example, it might be Italian or American, but is it southern when you desire northern flair.
The meeting, coupled with a tasting could reveal the caterers experience in meeting your needs. Additionally, your palates’ response might reveal the unexpected. That their food isn’t what you thought you wanted, BUT its’ something new and exciting. The palate is a very distinctive, individual thing. But so too is your desire for the wedding food of your dreams. In doing so, the caterers must indeed have the talent to meet your palate.
P.S. Give me a call at 484-949-4160. In addition to event management and affordable
wedding rentals, I know a few caterers, who just might have the talent to meet your palate J
Throughout 2016 Pantone’s Color of the Year was a duo (first time) of Rose Quartz and Serenity. It was noted as a ” Calming Palette” which emphasized pastels. The 2017 Color of the Year is Greenery, a broader color regiment.
The 2016 wedding couples surveyed by The Wedding Report gave credence to having the blues, including the Patone pastel Serenity. The color psychology of the blues, encompasses:
- better one-to-one communication
- trust and loyalty
- wisdom and faith
- confidence and intelligence
Those same survey couples gave the exact level of credence to the greens, which perhaps foretold the Pantone Greenery choice. Interestingly, the color psychology of the greens, encompasses:
- life, rebirth, fertility
- growth and renewal
- nature of energy and harmony
- money and finance
So for you new brides-to-be let me first say Happy New Year! Feel free to have faith in the wisdom, confidence and intelligence of those who preceded you. There is a greenery light on color in 2017!
