Peony Events Entertaining 101 | Welcome Drinks

Entertaining is all about being gracious and keeping guests engaged from the beginning of an event to the very end. We suggest to treat your guests the way you would want to be treated at someone else's affair. Also, let's not forget that first impressions make lasting impressions. Case in point, "Welcome Drinks!"

We like to welcome the guests of Peony Events with a beautiful entrance, which includes a welcome drink (alcoholic or non-alcoholic), upon their arrival. Whether it's to the ceremony or entering the cocktail hour (post church), it's always a nice, simple touch! Depending on your decor, event layout or drink selections, you can opt to have them butler-passed on trays (with lovely accents of course - personalized napkins, fruit garnishes, patterned straws, & flowers!) by waiters greeting at the entrance or they can be put on a beautiful display stand/table (something unique). Either way, guests will l-o-v-e it!

For spring/summer weddings opt for something extra refreshing + ice cold, for the colder months, something to warm them up with! Here are a few from some of our real weddings & events. {Photo Credits: Top 5 Images by Berit, bottom 4 Elena Wolfe Photography}

Peony Events Welcomes Jenny & Tyler ~ Crystal Springs Resort

We are so excited to officially welcome Jenny & Tyler with our love story blog that we love to do! Our couple's stories are too good not to share! Jenny and Tyler are just as sweet as they are beautiful, we are so excited to be a part of their big day!!
Peony Events
Jenny and Tyler met in Morristown during the fall of 2011.  Both being football fans, they met through a mutual friend during Sunday Funday football outings. They quickly became friends and when Tyler got in touch with Jenny before Thanksgiving that year to hang out, Jenny thought he meant with all of their friends.  But Tyler had to clarify: he wanted to ask Jenny out on a date.
Peony Events
After cooking her dinner, Tyler asked Jenny to become an official couple and they have been together ever since.  During a vacation in April to Aruba Tyler proposed to Jenny on their first night, while at dinner.
Peony Events
They will always remember the champagne popping, Hector the waiter, and Gianni's fabulous food.  They are looking forward to a fall wedding at Crystal Springs Resort and plan to dance the night away with close family and friends.
From Jenny:
I am so excited to work with Stacey and Peony Events.  My mom found Stacey's company while searching the web one day.  We were looking for someone special to put those finishing touches on our ideas for a rustic fall blush wedding.  After meeting with Stacey we knew she would be perfect to create the vision we were looking for, not missing any small detail.  She makes wedding planning so much fun and is genuinely excited to be part of your special day.
Thank you so much, Jenny, for your kind words! We are honored that you chose us!! xoxo

On Trend: Embellished Accessories For The Bride

Embellishments are in for accessories, but you don't need to match them perfectly,  the look right now is all about mixing different shades of beads, crystals & pearls.  Don't feel like you have to have the same beads or crystals on your handbag that you have on your shoes. Instead of making yourself nuts trying to match the exact same shade, choose items from the same color family, since neutrals like tan, gray, champagne, silver, copper and white all look so great together.
Just remember that less is more, making a statement with a fabulous pair of earrings and a cuff will do wonders or just a statement necklace, pick which direction you want to go in (or switch it up from ceremony to reception) and whatever you do, DO NOT over accessorize on your BIG day!
