Urban Dinner Party

I love when we have clients that come to us for assistance with events other than weddings, especially small intimate get togethers.  Working with Sarah & Neil was a blast.  We brought in a custom table and chairs just to accommodate this fabulous multi course meal dinner party.  Sarah is one stellar chef!

Loved the antler centerpiece that Sharon our fabulous floral deisgner created!

 Hope you enjoy the Photos that the very lovely Kerri from Mary Wyar Photography captured! I spy chalkboard chanrgers and votives!

Faith Love and Marriage October 6th 2012

Mr. & Mrs. Jeremy & Natalie Macke gave us the
pleasure of helping them through every aspect of their wedding as Full Planning
Clients. When we first met Natalie and her mother Monica they wanted to go over
the details of our contract very carefully, which was a good sign for us. We
knew right away that this was going to be a client who would
communicate to us exactly what they want and with that, we would be able to
guide them to the wedding of their dreams. Natalie is honest, humble and
beautiful inside and out, which made working for her and Jeremy not only
pleasurable but an honor. Since Faith is the cornerstone of their lives, we
wanted to make sure that guests felt that presence throughout the wedding. When looking through the photos below notice that Natalie and Jeremy are not just posing they are praying. You will see details such as crosses, bibles and tables named after bible verses. Our classic conservative couple used a color palate blending neutral champagnes with hues of greys then added an elegant touch of purples which we felt paired beautifully with the Toledo Country Clubs interior. From concept to completion you can see how we captured Natalie’s soft kind nature, Jeremy’s consistent commitment to her and their shared love for the outdoors all while telling their story of Faith Love & Marriage.

Having fun with a Nitrogen Fire and Ice Station

We are always looking for new fun interactive elements to bring to events. While visiting in Arizona I fell in LOVE with the ultra chic Fire and Ice Nitrogen Bar. Having ice sculptures or luges at your event has been a long standing tradition. A more recent tradition is the interactive sweet station, where guests can pick and choose tasty treats to build and take home with them. We have also seen the chocolate fountain and s’mores stations…BUT The Fire and Ice station is a combination of all of these things! There is a lot of attention being given to liquid nitrogen in the world of food, particularly molecular gastronomy, and I would really like to bring this unique idea to some of our events!

This concept is versatile for food and beverages! For the element of Ice use Nitrogen. As you know Nitrogen or dry ice will instantly turn anything frozen and cold. Give your guests an experience that will not soon be forgotten with a gooey sweet fire and ice treat! Your guests will have a blast playing with different types of combination’s of melted chocolate over frozen yogurt or using frozen fruit as ice cubes in cocktail glasses rimmed with melted caramel.

To create the element of fire use burners to melt chocolate and caramels. You can even use an exposed burner for toasting marshmallows! The combination of melted gooey and frozen cold will send your guests over the edge!

Shake up your Drink Menu, offer a Molecular bar with nitrogen.  Offer up drinks like nitrogen martini or tequila shake up !

If your interested in incorporating a unique element such as this to your next event, be sure to contact us info@eliteeventstoledo.com
