  Event Planning

At Carried Away Events, our clients come to us for help planning all types of parties... holiday parties, thank you parties, good-bye parties, parties to commemorate life's most important moments and parties for no reason at all. We love planning parties and can assist in all of the details or just a few of the details. Please contact us to discuss your next event.

Last summer, a client came to us with an enormous challenge, to transform a picnic pavilion located on the grounds of their club into an elegant and fun venue for their son's Bar Mitzvah, in less than 4 months. Lots of tent lining, tables, chairs, floral, entertainment, fans and bug spray later, it was a Bar Mitzvah no one will soon forget. To get things started, we had an energizing performance by the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders. Adults and young adults alike were blown away by the "first ladies of football" and many, many guests stood on line for autographs after the performance ended.

At the young adults table, the centerpieces were a creative mix of growing CD flowers and golf ball topiaries to reflect the hobbies of the guest of honor.

When we work with a client, we like to suggest the unusual, the never-before-seen or the untried for the elements of the event. We think this is a great way to build buzz and excitement at your event.

Returning clients of ours called to engage our planning services for a Caribbean party for 75 around their pool. It was a fun event, complete with an authentic Caribbean menu of red snapper, plantains, timbales of rice and mojitos. We created atmosphere with tiki torches, orchids and fresh fruit centerpieces and candles floating in the pool. The linens were bright and multi-colored. Floral was tropical with orchids and cut fruit. To add a personalized touch to the bar, we had floral coasters in our client's colors fastened to the bottom of each glass. They were the hit of the party.

Dear Carrie,

Thanks again for all of your help. We've had lots of nice complements about the party. It was the best time with the least amount of work for us.

Thank you for all your efforts to make our party a huge success! Everything was wonderful and best of all, I was able to relax and enjoy the evening. We hope to work with you again in the near future.
