Monday, January 24th, 2011

We’re still waiting on the event photos from Saturday’s twelfth annual Big Night to support Big Brother Big Sister of Massachusetts Bay, but we can’t help but give you a sneak peek of what is arguably one of Boston’s most elaborate annual events of the year!  Here are a few before shots (thank you Arthur at Style Studio!) and a snippet of Michael Frante’s performance that Jill caught on video – he was awesome.

An Amazing Amazing Race!

Wednesday, January 12th, 2011

Corinthian Events - Boston Event Planning News

We have had a number of clients opting for team-building activities over cocktail receptions for their holiday parties this past season.  Just before the holidays, Amy and Jill planned and executed an Amazing Race for 80 guests divided into 10 teams.  The teams ventured throughout Boston visiting historic spots and hidden gems such as Maria’s Pastry, Cheers and the Union Oyster House.  At the various locations, challenging tasks were handed out by the judges including driving the ball onto the green at City Golf,  shooting baskets at Basketball City and performing a “street act” in front of fans at the Sam Adam’s Statue.  An outstanding time was had by all, rave reviews went to the planner from the participants.

“Thanks so much for all your work!  The feedback we have received from the group was overwhelming positive!  Everybody thought the race was so much fun and I didn’t hear one complaint about the cold!!   You were right, running around would keep everybody warm and it did.”

Proof that an Amazing Race is fun any day of the year?  We think so.

Creative Centerpieces for Less

Wednesday, January 5th, 2011

Ideas and Suggestions by the Corinthian Events Team

Sometimes a budget doesn’t allow for elaborate floral centerpieces, but that doesn’t mean your decor has to suffer!  There are plenty of options to wow guests with a top a dinner table.

Sometimes simplistic is best.  Here we used square votives and corresponding ribbon to create a simple but eye catching table

Often themed events provide a great opportunity to showcase creativity.  From butterflies to pianos, miniature team garb or faux fleurs  to the beach, there are endless ways to dress a table without a classic arrangement.

It’s still okay to bring the outdoors in without using your typical buds!  Miniature Zen-like gardens, autumnal gourds, lanterns and sea accessories make for the perfect table scape.
