UFOs, Flash mobs, Candy & Aliens

What do these things have in common?

They represent the awesome events I had the privilege of working on last weekend!
CandyBuffetEventPlanningThe first was a wonderful launch party for a brand new children’s book at the Children’s Museum of Tacoma. More than a book launch and signing, this fun-filled evening had an agenda built specifically with the children in mind. There was story time, games, dancing, and a self serve candy buffet designed by Renatta Emerson Events (aka Immersion Events).

I had so much fun putting this together and am honored to have had the opportunity to be a part. Photos from the event can be found at the Ike & Tash Photography in Motion blog.

Just two days later – on April Fool’s Day – I got to stage a UFO crash in the unsuspecting town of Burien.

Not only did nearly 300 people come out and party with us, they came donning tinfoil hats or in full on costume, they danced, they got hit by flying broccoli, and after all that, some of them went home $500 richer. (That’s what happens when you win a costume contest in B-Town.)

Looking for Romance

ValentinesDinnerImmersionEventsSeattleOne of my favorite event planners, Preston Bailey, made a recent post about Romancing Your Clients in his blog, and I do have to say… the man knows how to romance his clients!

Which led me to an intriguing thought: the act of Romancing involves connecting with another person on an emotional level; providing something that instills a feeling of emotional fulfillment.

As an event planner & coordinator, I want each client to be not only satisfied with the result of his/her event, but to come away emotionally fulfilled because of the great time everyone had, the peace of mind through it all and the thrill of success. I want to make you look good!

Speaking of looking good, my husband and I decided to make dinner together for Valentine’s day and it turned out absolutely amazing!
