We watched another Event Leadership Institute video called Big Wow Within Buget: Affordable Event Design, taught by award-winning event producer Jes Gordon. What an awesome video! She taught us some way cool tips and tricks to get that “WOW factor” under a budget. She suggested tips like, using votive holders as mini cocktail glasses and how to find seasonal throw pillows at Target. Jes showed us some really helpful websites that we are definitely going to take advantage of. Here are our favorites:
- usedeventstuff.com – A great site to buy and sell used event furnishings, decor, and everything else!
- lunabazaar.com – This site has unique decor for sale (cheap!). Everything from lanterns and luminaries to napkin rings and pillow covers. Browsing around this site gets the creative juices flowing. Martha Stewart shops here!
- accentdecor.com – On this site, you will find high quality decor like mirrored vases and vibrant glassware. This is a great place to go if you’re looking to add chic detail to your event.
