Holiday Sparkle


Add some excitement to your holiday party with some sparkle. This event was full of red, black and shinning silver details with ornaments and sparkle galour. The theme was incorporated throughout the event, even in the desert with delicious glittery cake pops.  This theme is perfect for a sophisticated corporate event and also an exciting party for you and your friends.

Corporate Holiday



Vintage Winter Wonderland:


This Vintage Winter Wonderland themed party was an intimate gathering with delicious food and elegant decor. Elegant vintage touches were incorporated into the classic theme with the vintage inspired table cloth, chavari chairs, napkins and name cards.  The white chocolate covered cake pops, sugared white marshmallows and white chocolate covered pretzels paired were a huge hit!

Gold Winter:


This high class party at the Signature Room on the 92nd floor of the John Hancock building incorporated details of Chicago and the city lights by incorporating gold satin lines, centerpieces with gold ornaments and sparkly gems. People love photo booths! They can easily be created to reflect the theme with a unique backdrop and some props.




Mountain Lodge:


The Mountain Lodge Theme is perfect for a cozy holiday party.Plaid fabrics are a great way to give that Ski Lodge feel. Lodge’s are rustic, so go ahead use the resources you have. If you have pinecones in your backyard, pick the best ones and bring them to the party. They can be used for everything from centerpieces, to garland and place card holders. Don’t be afraid to get creative.

A Top Notch 100th Year Anniversary Celebration

We were honored to help A.O. Reed & Co. plan their 100th Year Anniversary Celebration. Having been the mechanical contractor for the construction of the Manchester Grand Hyatt, it seemed fitting for A.O Reed to host the big event in the Manchester Ballroom, Foyer and Terrace.  Strategic planning, hard work and strong men allowed us to wheel the 1914 Ford Model T into the Foyer for a fun and memorable photo opportunity. Old vintage elements were carried throughout the decor, while keeping the overall feel very elegant and fun. The A.O. Reed & Co. 100th Year logo was incorporated into the invitation, ice sculpture, menu cards, champagne glasses, custom dance floor, and top notch gift bag.

The amazing event had to be accompanied by phenomenal entertainment. Who better, than the best…Wayne Foster Entertainment. Complete with a 42 foot stage, elegant draping, lighting, a haze machine, surprise confetti shooter, and themed performers including a man on stilts;        It was out of this world! The guests danced the night away…even getting out on the dance floor between salad, dinner, and dessert!

Special Thanks to the The Manchester Grand Hyatt, Events + Style Team, Wayne Foster Entertainment, Concepts Event Design, Dulcie Jones Florist, Crystal Creations, Casa Del Mar, Nic Roc Designs and Tim Haugh Photography. The event was a huge success and will be remembered by so many valued A.O. Reed employees and guests!

Chalkboards are everywhere! They are a fun, cute, and easy way to personalize every day events and special occasions. They are an effective way to provide information and can easily be reused for something else. Some of our favoite uses include; entertaining with big chalkboard menus and little food signs, wedding welcome signage that directs your guests to the ceremony site, cute signature bride and groom drink signs by the bar, daily inspirational decor, festive holiday decor, and maternity photo shoots.
