Hello there! In August, we participated in Phoenix NACE’s Tantalizing Table event where we were able to create a table design that was both fun and exciting! This was such a blast for us and we couldn’t have been more thrilled about how it turned out to be. Inspired by a piece of fabric from a local Hobby Lobby, we were really able to bring out an exciting tablescape.

BTS recently coordinated a wedding that included a food truck in the festivities- yes we said it, a food truck! Food truck mania is all over the country- cities like Austin, Los Angeles, and New York have been paving the way for the food truck craze and now Phoenix is hopping on the bandwagon! Couples are starting to ditch traditional caterers and seek out those on wheels for their weddings.
There are a ton of factors to take into consideration when choosing a venue for your wedding. You want to meet all of your needs but it can be tricky when trying to juggle your own religious preferences, your fiancé’s, and those of others. Then there are all of the other elements to include to your overall theme as well as practical factors such as your guest list. With all of this confusion, at the end of the day you have a ton of choices to choose from. Here are some relevant questions to consider:
Planning on hosting your own 4th of July party? With average temperatures in Arizona as high as 120 degrees lately (yikes!), you’ll need some extra-cold, tasty drinks to cool down your guests this summer holiday. Whip up and drink up some of our favorite red, white and blue cocktails!
One of the first events we planned this year was a University of Michigan Alumni dinner. We had a blast planning and preparing for this event. Many alumni flew from all over the country to partake in this amazing dinner that happens once a year. Most of the attendees played softball or baseball throughout college, and some of theme were even fortunate enough to make a career out of their talents. The event was held at the beautiful Phoenician resort in Scottsdale, AZ. The amazing food and great music had a southwestern flare. There was a taco bar with just about every type of taco filling and topping you could imagine. One of the best parts was the freshly made churros. Guests mingled, listed to music and honored some of their admirable coaches. We, at BTS Event Management, were honored to be a part of such an amazing event! Thanks for the opportunity:) Here are some more pictures:
BTS Event Management was so fortunate to plan the New Years Eve party of the decade! We created a party favor table filled with new years eve props arranged creatively, which was a huge hit with the guests. The table consisted of party poppers, hats, glasses, mustaches, new years resolution cards, and an digital countdown to midnight.
I recently had the pleasure of planning and coordinating a Toy Story themed birthday party for a little boy who was turning 2. The party was full of vibrant colors and fun elements of entertainment. I would love to share with you some of the photos that were taken by Harley Bonham, who is an amazing photographer.
This September, BTS Event Management, along with a few other amazing event industry professionals organized an awesome event for WEN. WEN is a wedding networking group that meets once a month and allows people in the wedding and event industry to get to know one another on a more personal level and build relationships. This is important because it takes a large team of talented people to create the wedding of your dreams, so knowing each other’s strengths and talents allows us to collaborate on the highest level. When we designed the event, we wanted to go with a fall theme. In Arizona, the heat doesn’t allow for a whole lot of weddings or events to take place in the summer, but once it starts to cool off, our season begins and we are working at full speed. The WEN event was hosted at the beautiful Scottsdale Resort and Conference Center. We titled the event, Fall Back into the Season. I would like to share some pictures of this evening:)
Regardless of the special event you have coming up, whether it be a wedding, corporate event, or personal party, I highly recommend choosing a theme. By choosing a theme the planning and coordination of the event goes much smoother. It allows for a great flow of colors, party favors, food, and music to come together and compliment one another. Follow these easy steps to ensure you’ve covered all your bases:
