Seasonal Place Cards


Written by stephanie | Crafts, Fall, Pacific Northwest, Paper Goods, Trends

We are all for DIY and taking inspiration from your surroundings here at Solomon Event Planning. Take these super cute, super crafty and super easy place card holders, perfect for your Thanksgiving and holiday tablescapes this fall. They add rich color and texture, along with a subtle ode to the Northwest. Place Cards also offer an easy formality to any meal, making each and every guest feel special and welcome. Lastly, we love the ease with which one could switch around a few seats and place cards as needed without compromising the custom decor. Flexible design is critical when hosting and accommodating last minute guests and seating changes, keeping everyone in the high spirits of the holidays.


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!


Wonders of Washi Tape


Written by stephanie | Crafts, Paper Goods, Products

We’re sure you’ve seen all the washi tape inspired crafts and paper goods popping up on Pinterest, Martha Stewart and every craft store or Etsy site…or perhaps you don’t spend as much time fawning over creative ways to dress up your event invites as we do! If that’s the case, learn and love the playful medium of washi tape, a decorative and adhesive tape perfect for embellishing take home treats, place cards, invites etc. Rolls typically run around $5, and many craft stores are developing lines with intricate designs, making this adorable craft material widely available. We can’t wait to see what new and innovative uses are to come!

Advice Card Guestbook


Written by Jessica Johnson | Blogs, Paper Goods, Weddings

Instead of a traditional guestbook, consider these advice cards. During cocktail hour guests can offer advise on how to create a lasting marriage. The cards can later be placed in a photo album or framed and displayed in your home together.

Mint To Be


Everyone knows the old adage of “something borrowed, something blue” but if you want to add a special twist to your special day we suggest a hint of mint. This color has been popping up all over this season and will undoubtedly continue in popularity through summer and the rest of 2012!
