Thoughtful Seating

Thoughtful Seating

Are you at the table? Did you choose your table or were you seated at it? The same thing goes for your seat mates, the  proximity or distance you have to each other, and where your table is located in the grand scheme of things. Was thoughtful seating a part of the event?

When you are in the beginning phases of planning your event, take a look at how you can show guests how much you appreciate their being present by making them feel truly welcome.

Planners tend to set up a floor plan based on space and available furniture. That completely makes sense. Unless, of course, you have the means to base your design and seating arrangements on your guests’ needs, your priorities, and helping everyone feel included.

Informal events tend to be laissez-faire—more along the lines of musical chairs (think—who nabs the seat close to the dessert table?) 

Corporate events are intentionally more result-oriented. Who are the participants and what is the objective of the event: a meeting; presentation; awards ceremony; celebration;  conference or trade show, or break-out social time? + Read More

Celebrate Mitzvah Guests with Specialty Entertainment

While the focus of a Bar or Bat Mitzvah celebration is the guest of honor, don’t forget to honor the guests who came to celebrate with you! With Atlanta families hosting friends and relatives from across the country, and sometimes around the globe, it’s becoming increasingly popular to create experiences that make everyone in attendance feel special. We spoke with three Mitzvah vendors offering guest-centric entertainment:
Handy Entertainment.
What does everyone love to talk about? Themselves! Jan Levie, owner of Handy Entertainment, provides fortune telling, handwriting analysis, LipsReadings™, Tarot card readings, and more to families looking to give Mitzvah guests a personalized experience.
Jan customizes the experience to the unique interests and preferences of the Mitzvah child and his or her family, and is especially adept at creating comfortable interactions for those with sensory differences and learning disabilities.
Whether Handy Entertainment performs LipsReadings™ or Chocolate LipsReadings™ (guests apply handmade chocolate ganache to their lips and kiss a themed card for analysis) or shows guests what their palms reveal, they receive upbeat, positive messages that offer insights into their personalities and lives.
Fans of the movie Big will be thrilled by Handy Entertainment’s version, Zoltar Fortune Teller Booth! A live fortune teller interacts with guests from inside an arcade game shell with an LED remote-controlled light panel, custom colors and themes, and a secret door for delivering prizes or gifts to guests. Handy Entertainment also offers a staffed high res photo booth, customized with backdrops to fit the event theme, with unlimited downloads and custom add-ons. “Many tell me that what we offer seems magical,” Jan says. “And that’s exactly the way we want guests to feel.”
