Astoria Mini Event Design & Set up

20

Planning a small shower or birthday party in Astoria and don’t know where to start?  Let me help!

Once you’ve settled on a venue and date, I will pull together all of the pretty little details that will make your event a memorable one.  Here is how it works:

1.  Let’s Chat:  I will asses your direction (if any) with a talk or an online questionnaire to help pull some inspiration out of you!

Baby Shower2.  Mood:  I provide a mood board for approval (like the above) to help keep focus.

3.  Direction:  I deliver a digital document with product and vendor recommendations for rentals and purchases for the following as needed: invitations, photography, dessert, decor, and favors.  It’s like following a road map, stress-free and no research needed!

4.  Set up:  I will be on site to set up all of the details that were so carefully planned.  You can sip champagne while your guests arrive and for once, not be running around.

Sound good?   Get in touch – I would love to make your event a HUGE success!

Mini Event Design + Set up Packages start at $450.00 for small parties under 40 guests in Astoria.  Prices vary according to amount of planning time prior to event and amount of day-of set up time and labor required.

All of the above components can be purchased, a la cart; get in touch if you’re interested in a customized proposal.

I just had to share a few photos that photographer Fiona Melder captured at Purslane Catering‘s recent luncheon at 501 Union.  We were so happy to see our mismatched floral plates, three tier china stands, salt + pepper shakers + clear pressed glass goblets adorning the grand wood table.  Starling on Bond provided some lovely flowers + styling too.  Beautiful set up everyone!

Recently, Little Vintage Rentals had the honor of participating in Cosabella‘s launch party celebrating Erin Fetherston‘s new lingerie line!  We just loved how Alana Jones Mann styled the event and created a DIY flower crown station using silk blooms.  Our floral tins, bottles, china and some props like our record player and pastel colored suitcases fit in perfectly.  Special thanks to Kate Neal Photography for these amazing photos!

Joy Thigpen’s Creative Direction + Styling Workshop

The Inn at Serenbe was breathtakingly beautiful.  The air was crisp and the sun crept into every inch of the grounds.  I stayed for three days to participate in Joy Thigpen‘s Creative Direction + Styling Workshop with twenty lovely wedding industry women.   It was inspiring and I am grateful to have heard first hand about Joy’s journey.  I look forward to putting much of the knowledge Joy shared into practice.
