As the end of the year approaches, we’ve taken a moment to look back at 2014 and we are feeling so blessed for the wonderful moments we were able to share with friends, family and clients (as well as their friends and family!)

Our first home was purchased in 2014. I can’t wait to truly make this house a home, make the new TCD office an inspiring space and create heart warming experience for all who visit!

the cocktail party host

Cocktail parties have to be one of our favorite types of events!

Your guests have the flexibility of showing up when it fits in their schedule, stay for as long as they would like, enjoy a few treats and mingle with an intimate group!

the creative details hosted it’s first wedding industry networking event on Thursday night and despite the storm and cancellations, we would like to think it was a success!

Our plan was to get a small group of (amazing/enjoyable/ talented) vendors together as a thank you for a great wedding season and a cheers to being industry friends!

Here are a few tips for planning your first cocktail hour!

1. Don’t worry about the number of guests. A cocktail hour should have a casual feel with people coming and going as they please. Whether there is a group of 5 or a group of 50 in the room, it will be a great time!

2. Know your group. We were inviting all industry-related guests so we made sure our event was not on Friday/Saturday/Sunday when they would be working. A Thursday evening seemed like the perfect timing for the group to get together and have a glass of champagne before the busy weekend!

3. Pick a theme or color scheme for your event (ours was Kate Spade inspired). This helps guide you through the planning process to ultimately create a pretty, coordinated evening.

4. Keep it simple and work with people you trust. We had hors d’oeuvres, mini sandwiches, snacks and sweet cookies! That’s it. Not need to go over the top, no one is anticipating dinner, just a little something.

5. Enjoy yourself. Hosting a networking event is like hosting a dinner party or an event in your home. You want to be calm, enjoy your guests and not run around worrying about things being done (planning ahead and keeping it simple helps so much with this!)

Thank you to the all the vendors who helped us make this event and a special thank you to the wonderful team at Balzac’s Coffee Roasters for being such a pleasure to work with and an a wonderful, unique venue for our networking event!
