At Kennedy Events, we love great event design, but we don’t simply design an event to be beautiful just for the sake of being beautiful. There’s an intense amount of strategy that goes into every detail. If you’ve ever attended our events, you may not have noticed this—and that’s the telltale sign that we’ve done our job well.Read More

Spring is upon us, and we couldn’t be more excited about bright blooms being around every corner, and the sun shining through the normally foggy clouds. And of course, it means our inbox is full of inquiries about fall + holiday events. There’s nothing we love more than an all out dash to close out the year, so outfitting an event with strategy and style (and lots of holiday sparkle!) is one of our favorite conversations.
But we’ve noticed questions that nearly alway comes up in that conversation, so today we’re addressing the most commonly asked ones and spilling what we wish all our clients knew about event planning.Read More
Events are SO much fun (of course we think so!), but we’re proponents of making sure that you’re event is more than pretty. We’re in favor of making sure that the effects of your event are going to last longer than the effects of the open bar will. And that’s where goal setting comes in.Read More
