My Day at BizBash Live NY – New York City

1-Photo Oct 28, 3 00 09 PM

So today, I announced that I was rebranding my business name to take it from something quirky I chose when I was first starting out as a wedding and event planner, to something more simple and sophisticated and that better reflects my brand. And, you know what? There’s no better way to kick off a new blog post under the new name than to blog-o-rama about my amazing day in New York City at BizBash Live!


If you love what you see in the photos below, then you’ll be extra happy when I give you all the information for the businesses that supply what you see. It is my mission, Western Massachusetts, to let you know that there is a whole other world of possibilities and options for your wedding or event. I am certainly your go-to-girl if you want unique and beautiful.

Here we go! Let’s start with the yum category.

Chocolate covered pretzels, even available in custom colors for your wedding, event or brand. These are great to put in your out of town guest bags, used as wedding favors, or as corporate gifts or thank you gifts.

Branded or custom photo Rice Krispie Treats with different flavors and toppings make great favors or marketing pieces.

Flavored cotton candy! Pumpkin Spice was what I sampled, and it was so yummy and came on an LED cotton candy stick. How cool is that for your event? This was featured in Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine.

I loooooooove stationery and invitations. Once you see these, you’ll be in love, too. Granted the photos I took with my trusty little iPhone doesn’t do them much justice, so you’ll have to hop onto their site when you’re done with my blog, of course, to check out their work!

Oooooh, and the talent you can hire to make your event unique and jaw-dropping….

How about the Screaming Queens Entertainment? They are gorgeous and provide celebrity impersonators, show girls and drag performers. (Not to mention, there was a photo op and some awesome and festive magnets for my fridge 🙂

And then there were those strolling tables just like you’d see on David Tutera’s show. They are entertaining and unique for sure.

Beautifully costumed characters from both Cirque du Soleil and Zhantra Entertainment graced the showroom floors.

Super fun balloon talent showcased the room, as well.

My absolute favorite part of the show was the rentals. Furniture options galore. If you know me, you know I love me a high end linen and some furniture rental pieces. While there aren’t very many unique options in Western Massachusetts, there are some in Boston and New York that will ship here if you have the budget and the desire for amazing rentals to set your event or wedding apart. The stylist me was in complete designer heaven. Whoa. I have scrolled and scrolled through the websites of the following companies, so to finally see their pieces in person was just what I needed.

I have to tell you… Geo Events was the stand out show-stopper for me. He was fun and completely loves what he does. He loved telling us about his rentals and his design work. And, this lucky girl got to sit on the diva-licous L-O-V-E couch on the light up dance floor. {whoot-whoot}


I work hard to keep up on trends and options and to bring you experience and knowledge, and events like these are so fun to go to. It is wall to wall, wedding and event planning eye-candy. So fun. Stay tuned for my next adventure!
