My Celebration Brand

Posted on: July 24th, 2014

LeeHenry Events, LLC has been a solid and established business since 2007.  Next January, I’ll celebrate eight years in business. YEAH! Because I’m a military spouse, I (and my business) get to experience opportunities in new locations every three to four years. I’ve learned to turn this negative into a positive as I am blessed to have contacts and industry friends in several cities. I also LOVE to travel so I can plan events from anywhere and fly or drive to wherever my clients are located. What sets LHE apart? We are fortunate to take from each city the various experiences, trends and professional partner contacts. Trends of each city? Believe it or not…some overall industry trends may not have reached a particular city. When this happens, I can be the lucky one to make the introductions. This year, has been no different – we are now in KY.

In addition to moving, over time, I like to add small aspects to the brand. Two aspects, I want to share with you today are:

1. My lifestyle blog called “Lady Celebrate™ – Lifestyle Chronicles of an Event and Wedding Planner”. This blog chronicles the personal aspects of my life as a business owner and all things fashion, bling, entertainment and being an Army wife.  It’s possible you will find a few deets about LHE here as well.

2. One day, I was stalking Savoir Faire Media’s website and fell madly in love with the virtuals.  After finally contacting the owner, the design process was in motion. I found Natalie and her team to be talented, very professional and I loved how my virtual turned out. Here’s a peek of my photo taken by Colette D. Photography and the virtual. To see the full length virtual, visit here.

Celebrate, Tanza

    LHE Event: Best Man Holiday Feast & Film

    Posted on: July 17th, 2014

    Since it’s Throwback Thursday, I thought I would share an event that I held in my home last November. The event was held during the opening weekend of the long awaited movie The Best Man Holiday. I invited a few friends over to feast on some delicious food prepared by Gardenia’s Custom Cakes and Catering. Afterwards, we headed to the PACKED movie theater to watch the movie. Dwayne from D. Terry Photography was there to capture all the goodness.

    Best Man Holiday Movie PartyI love it when women meet for the first time and they feel comfortable enough to give each other a hug. Although the women were meeting for the first time, it felt like old friends catching up with each other on a Saturday afternoon.

    After prayer, we ate the delicious food, had some deep inspiring conversations and played “Best Man Movie” trivia with prizes.

    Of course, no LeeHenry Events‘ celebration is without a departing party favor which was a burlap bag with a hint towards Christmas inside.  The rich fall colors of orange, yellow and red was used as decor along with diva wine glass ornaments, lanterns and chalkboard paper bag menu cards. It was by accident that we all wore black.  I loved the food, the company and of course the movie was outstanding.

    If there’s a Best Man 3, I’ll have to plan another fun afternoon. Leave me a comment and tell me what elements from this celebration would you add to your own private event?

      Styling an Escort Card Table

      Posted on: July 7th, 2014

      Great backdrop for Escort Card Table

      Are you having a swanky celebration or a formal wedding that requires seating assignments and escort cards? First, let’s talk about the difference between escort cards and place cards.

      1. Escort cards are placed in a central location in alphabetical order and they will inform guests which table they are seated.

      2. Place cards are found on the individual table indicating which seat guests will be assigned.

      The escort cards or place cards can also double as guest favors.

      Since the escort cards are found in a visible location, it should be styled to draw attention.  I’m sharing four ideas to help style the table.

      1. The gold mirror above would look great as a backdrop at a celebration using the colors gold, cream and white.

      2. Having a fall vintage wedding involving mason jars, cowboy boots and a barn? Use caramel apples, homemade strawberry jam, hay and the colors orange, red & rust on the table.

      3. Glass vases, candles, flowers and sequin linen is great decor for an upscale celebration of elegance and grace.

      4.  Having a fire and ice celebration with a bar made from ice? Why not have your escort card table designed from ice as well?

      I hope these ideas help spark some thought into styling your escort card table for your next formal event. What’s your favorite idea? What ideas can you recommend?
