HOW TO MAKE YOUR NEXT EVENT A HIT  

People are always asking us what they can do to make their event pop…

Here are 5 of our favorite add-ons that have

been the highlight of parties we’ve worked on!


unnamed-21. GIF MAKING PHOTO BOOTH

Photo booths are on our list of favorites, and companies like The Bosco and PHHHOTO have taken it to another level with their booth that creates animated gif images. Yes, it’s a gif making photo booth and it’s the ultimate fun party toy. The iPad camera starts a countdown and then records a few seconds of footage, which are looped into a GIF and uploaded online. You can beam them onto a wall with a projector at the event, share them on social media or browse them from your phone from a custom URL.

At the Urban Compass holiday party, the gif booth was the only camera that people lined up for.

2. FANCY A COCKTAIL

If you have the budget, consider hiring a mixologist to make specialty cocktails during your event. Mixologists are versed in the craft of mixing drinks and use fresh ingredients and herbs to concoct them. We believe it’s the best use of your budget once you’ve secured the basics like venue and food. A Great American Gibson, a Cranberry Colins, or a Smoky Negroni, who wouldn’t dig that?

3. LIVE MUSIC

Music brings a certain energy to your event unlike anything else you can do. A solo cellist, a jazz pianist, a string quartet, take your pick of live music or go with a DJ. Our friends over at Gigzolo take the work out of finding the right musician. Their site is an online marketplace where you identify, listen to, and book musicians and live entertainment for events in NYC.

4. BLACKOUT

Everyone needs some black lights in their life now and again. We had a client who wanted something edgy for their event, so we created a blackout themed party using only black lights to light the space. We had glow sticks and white decor that gave the space an exciting vibe.

5. BUBBLES FOR ADULTS

Bubbles may be primarily for kids but they’re fun at any age. One of our favorite out of the box add-ons has been a bubble show- so get creative and try something new for your next gig.

I originally met Amanda and Kelsey at my friend Yasmin’s pumpkin-carving party this past fall. While the subject of conversation should have been centered on carving ideas and Halloween plans, I couldn’t stop myself from asking the two best friends more about their event planning company, Eventurously. Both were extremely enthusiastic about building the company from the floor up, utilizing their wide skillset and innate talents that had caught the eyes of previous employers, like Facebook and Twitter. Naturally, when I started this series, I knew I had to find out how their experience of growing a successful company began, especially when it involved working with a best friend 24/7.

How did you two meet?

We met back in 1999 in our hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, when our mutual friend decided to bail on our 7th grade sleepover. The two of us awkwardly talked about our favorite Britney Spears song…
