4th of July Parade

4th of July Parade

We love celebrating Independence Day! The 4th of July is a landmark summer celebration that invites the town together with food and fun. As the first holiday of the summer season, making this day special is easier than you might think! Preparation Is Key The first step is to choose a date and let your town departments in on the plan. You can keep your parade low-key by choosing a dead-end street and making a quick stop at each home to let them know what you have in mind. If you want something a little larger scale, consult with your town police and fire department so they are on the same page in case they are needed for anything. This is a great idea no matter the size of your parade in case any permits or emergency services are needed. Your local police and fire departments may be able to stop in for the festivities which will get the kids extra excited! Involve the Community Entertainment is abundant in your community! Contact local school bands to see if they want to participate in leading your parade with music! Reaching out to after-school activity groups and local rec centers can provide amazing talent that will take your parade to the next level. Gymnasts, hula-hoopers, face-painters, and musicians will add a creative element to your celebration. If you are planning your parade on a residential street, involving the homes is a great way to bring families out into the action. With enough notice, little ones can set up lemonade booths, popsicle stands, or prepare tables where participants can pick up kazoos,...
Graduation Parties

Graduation Parties

Class of 2018 – Congratulations! As we near the end of another school year, our young graduates deserve some time to celebrate their hard work! We love coordinating Graduation parties to transition our young adults into their college years. The weather is beautiful, summer is here, and our grads want to enjoy their freedom! Plan a cookout to easily coordinate all their friends and family! There’s so much great grad themed décor you can pick up at your local party store. Don’t be afraid to do a little DIY! Making a banner to shout out the class of 2018 is a great personal touch. Pick up some hot dogs and hamburgers and plan for a day out in the rays! We love coordinating graduation parties in local parks and other outdoor venues that facilitate grills and offer gazebos and other sources of shade. A tent rental is always a great option to choose if you have a large backyard! Thinking something more formal? Choose a venue where you can serve a meal family style. Set up a backdrop with 2018 balloons for selfies and photos that will create long-lasting memories. We suggest a personal touch like a photo canvas or other guestbook where everyone can sign yearbook style to commemorate their achievements. Be sure to “Cheers!” to 2018 and a successful journey to...
Spring Fling | Event Planning Expert Tips

Spring Fling | Event Planning Expert Tips

The wakening of Spring brings forth so many traditions to pull us out of our winter shell. Annual Spring Fling events make their way onto our calendars in March and April. How do you make your event a unique experience to remember? We have the expert event planning tips. Up-lighting. As you may know, Events By Deb is offering up-lighting services in 2018. With competitive pricing and full set up and break down, we love the effects up-lighting adds to our events. A great way to incorporate Pantone’s color of the year, ultra violet, into your Spring Fling is by adding up-lighting to main areas of your venue. Creative hors d’oeuvres. Keep refreshments modern. Renting a food truck or mobile caterer that can set up stations for pizzas, sandwich bites, and sides are inexpensive and diverse. Having finger food stations will keep attendees moving and dancing, while cutting costs on dishes, linens, and formal catering staff. Spring Fling Favors. Photo booth services have come a long way since they hit the social scene a couple years back. With the integration of backgrounds, filters, props, and digital copies – having a photo booth at your event is trending now more than ever! As an easy party favor and forever memory in print, set up a booth and allow the guests to take their close up!   Need help planning a Spring Fling event? We have you covered!
