After designing an inspiring showroom at A Classic Party Rental, we picked the brain of event designer and planner Laura Lim of Eventfull Planning. Below, Laura gives advice for the cost conscious bride and tips for event design.
How did you get started as an event planner?
I began my career planning corporate and social events for a Mircrobrewery in the Washington, D.C. area.
Tell us a little bit about Eventfull Planning and what makes your team special?
Eventfull Planning is a full service event planning company. We work with wedding, social, corporate, and non-profit clients. We are experienced, organized, detail-oriented and imaginative.
Are there certain design elements or “tricks of the trade” you use to make your events spectacular?
We really listen to our clients. We work closely with them to create events that are reflective of their personal taste and style- making each event truly unique.
Where do you find your design inspiration?
Fashion and travel magazines! I used to work in the fashion industry. I try to draw inspiration from trends outside of the event industry.
What was your inspiration for the A Classic Party Rental tablescapes? Do you have a favorite?
The rustic chic table is very on trend. Barn weddings are very popular now. I wanted to show how you could use burlap and lace to create a look that is more elevated.
The navy table is inspired by the use of textured fabrics and mixed metals in fashion. Navy is a great alternative to black. It’s perfect for a Fall/Winter event.
The coral/orange table was inspired by the fashion trend called color blocking. This tone-on-tone table is bright and fresh- perfect for a spring/summer event.
I don’t have a favorite look. I hope each table will speak to different clients.
What 3 things are most important to remember when throwing a party?
1. Know your audience (your guest of honor and guest list).
2. Keep it simple.
3. Have fun!
What advice would you give the cost conscious bride?
Hire a planner! We can help develop a realistic working budget and keep things on track. We save our clients time and money with our advice and industry relationships.
