Seattle NACE Event

Hot Fall Trends for Seattle NACE event

There is a whole lot we love about the work we do with The Greater Seattle Chapter of the National Association for Catering & Events (NACE), but one of the things we love the most are the couple times a year when Amy and I get to plan and lead one of the monthly events. We get to plan and create with the area’s finest to showcase some of the hot trends, products, and looks happening in the industry. We are like a kid on a Wonka tour.

October was our month to be up again and it was AMAZING! We were showcasing a beautiful, new wedding venue in Redmond, Parties on the Terrace and the focus of the meeting was focused around wine education. Being as we were at this fabulous wedding venue, we went all in on the wedding focused theme for our design and décor. Playing off the delightful Fall colors of the season, we designed a warm and luscious look to this event. Gorgeous Velvet Fern linens and Champagne Glitz table runners provided by CORT Party Rentals made for a perfect stage for the décor on the long King Tables. Fena Flowers absolutely nailed the look with beautiful greenery filled with pops of soft color.

The networking reception before dinner was an absolute blast with a fun sensory game we designed to test everyone’s wine knowledge. Happy Hour Bar Rentals built a stupendous #barscene and Seattle Party Shots captured our good side with their super fun photo experience.

Table 47 Catering absolutely killed it with delicious flavors and beautiful presentations while Linda Chauncey, from Ste Michelle Wine Estates educated us on Washington Wines. Jean-Marcus Strole Photography was on hand to capture all the fun on film and Butler Seattle got all of our guests safely back to their cars. Thank you to the Seattle NACE board for letting us take a run at this one and thank you to all of our event partners that made it happen. Definitely one of our favorite events of the year!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you to our fabulous event partners. You are all amazing!!
