Written by stephanie | Birthday, Color Scheme, Photography, Summer, Trends

Because sometimes you just have to go all out for your birthday, and show your guests the best Washington has to offer while at it! Please enjoy these beautiful photos by Carol Harrold Photography, capturing this Summer Birthday Soirre. The event took place in the heart of Woodinville wine country, at the stunning DeLille Cellars. Guests enjoyed music from a live Jazz Duo, while strolling the vineyard with wine in hand. Once seated, the foodie oriented evening continued with a decadent seafood forward menu by Seastar Restaurant and Wine Bar. The intimate affair highlighted the rich food and wine resources the Pacific Northwest is known for, blending sophistication with earthy authentic notes.

Great Gatsby Gala


Written by stephanie | Birthday, Photography, Trends

While every event we are so fortunate to work on is truly special, we have to admit some events are extra extra special! Our fabulous Great Gatsby themed party goes straight to the top of our extra special events list as we pulled out all the stops to embody the roaring 20’s era glam, glitz and just a touch of refined gluttony! Guests were immediately taken back in time as classic vintage cars lined the driveway, immersing them in 1920s splendor. Feather an pearl clad Flappers ushered guests into the courtyard of the private residence, where they were greeted by a stunning coupe glass champagne tower. They complimented their already festive attire with glamorous props at the photo booth station, took their chances at the craps and card tables and dined on lobster as our sassy cigaret girls roamed the space offering libations and treats. The photos by Phototainment capture our Great Gatsby Gala in all it’s splendor, enjoy!

Sophisticated and Celebratory Bar Mitzvah

We are so excited to share with you, this beautiful, love and warmth filled Bar Mitzvah which took place at the Four Seasons Hotel here in downtown Seattle. We took great care in pulling together our favorite snaps from the evening, much like the care and detail in which our client approached every piece of this immaculate event.

Adults, family, friends and children alike enjoyed the sophisticated and celebratory party with activities and entertainment designed to appeal to all guests. They were treated to a prop filled photo booth, custom t-shirt and baseball cap station, decadent candy bar, refined Northwest fare and custom sodas. The rich chocolate linens and natural wood and white accents play off the Pacific Northwest perfectly. The evening kicked of with the Big-Band sounds of Jake Bergevin, passing off to our late night DJ as top 40 Pop played late into the evening. Enjoy!

Confetti Bar!


Written by stephanie | Birthday, Crafts, Gifts and Favors, Paper Goods, Weddings

We here at Solomon Event Planning love ourselves a good Candy Bar, a Cupcake Station, we’ve even been known to craft a delicious Hot Cocoa Bar and we highly recommend any interactive display where your  guests and loved ones can get in on the fun. We find our signature Candy Bars, often color coordinated to compliment the event’s theme, make for beautiful photo backdrops, add to the decor of the party and make for a great conversation piece.

Recently we stumbled on a fabulous new idea we are dying to try out, a custom Confetti Bar! While perfect for a New Years Eve Party, a Confetti Bar would be beautiful for a wedding, with guests throwing glitter and paper cutouts into the air as the bride and groom exit the reception, or to add to the excitement of a surprise Birthday party. Please someone give us an excuse to make our own soon, we promise to clean up our mess!


Creative Cookies


Written by stephanie | Bar Mitzvah, Birthday, Food, Gifts and Favors

While we cherish all our weddings, we also plan quite a few social and corporate events each year. We find that birthday parties, anniversaries and mitzvahs really bring out a creative side when planning the celebration. Photos and photo booths are such a big trend and fun activity at events, and these cookies below are not only delicious, but compliment that concept. Why not offer themed cookies to use as edible accessories in your next photo booth, to pass out Emoticon cookies to your guests like your sending them personal text messages, or even incorporate your favorite Instagram moments, printed on personalized cookie-grams?

A few other fun, inspiring ideas: Calendar cookies to represent the significance of a birthdate, or anniversary. Make different batches that mark the day you and your loved one met, your wedding date, when you bought a home together, commemorating significant moments in your lives together. And how cute are these cookies complete milk glass perch? Lastly, cookies designed to look like s’mores (we hope they taste like them too!) are a fun teaser, and less messy than the real thing!
