I just returned from a trip to London where I had great fun touring the sites and eating surprisingly good food (who knew London was such a culinary goldmine?!). One of the sites I visited with a friend while there was the Tower of London. We took the Yeoman Warder tour, drooled over the Crown Jewels, and toured the grounds.
While touring the Tower, I saw mention of how kings and queens used to entertain. Feasts, feasts, and more feasts. Fine china, well-dressed tables, delicacies of all kinds. It sounded so luxurious and decadent and must have been an incredible treat for those guests that were able to attend.
I do not promote the exclusivity and classicism that occurred in the days of those great feasts. I am struck, however, by the general hospitality that was extended. Every detail was carefully planned so that each guest would have a memorable experience. In fact, when these kings and queens used to entertain, their guests — usually the royal court — became an extension of their family.
In many ways, that is what Rex & Regina Events is about. Showing gracious hospitality to one’s guests. It could be a casual BBQ at your home, a special occasion like a wedding or graduation, a corporate event to entertain clients, or a non-profit fundraising event with donors. It doesn’t matter the style or scale of the event, guests should feel cared for and appreciated. From start to finish, their experience should be seamless, cohesive, and comfortable. They should feel like part of your family.
Here’s to gracious hospitality — royal or not!
As your guests dance the night away, they might long for an extra bit of sustenance. With so many late night snack options, here are a few treats sure to provide satisfaction that will have your guests raving for years to come.
Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby provides a luscious, opulent perspective of the 1920′s. Influencing fashion, events, and decor, the movie gives a fresh take on 1920′s flair. As you consider your signature drink for cocktail hour, keep in mind these revamped classics.
I simply adore this arrangement featured on One Charming Party. As they suggest, it would be perfect for Mother’s Day. I could also see it as part of a Spring tablescape, a ladies’ tea, a bridal shower…. The bright orange color and the pops of citrus make it a happy addition to any table!
Wishing everyone a very happy Easter. This little “nest” is absolutely stunning, isn’t it? Beautiful for an Easter celebration.
