Event Pin-spiration!

Oh, it’s our very favorite time of year. Spring (which is always ridiculously late to arrive on Cape Cod) means the buds get to blooming, the grill gets stoked and the windows get opened. And… all of the season’s events are taking shape!

If you need a first-rate portable toilet for your event, we’re your people. But if you need some inspiration for the other aspects of your shindig – food, cocktails, invites, favors, colors – please join us on this little stroll down Pinterest lane. Creative ideas abound!

Take the Cake (Really)

If you’re looking for a nontraditional wedding cake, there are many directions in which you can go. Cake pops, cupcakes, even a tower of donuts… all fair game. But you know what’s even more awesome (especially if you’re still drinking red wine)? A “cheesecake”! Designed to look like a wedding cake, each tier is a wheel of cheese - both beautiful and delicious graced with fruits, nuts and other cheese-worthy accompaniments.

Color Crush

Behr paint has chosen "In the Moment" as their 2018 color of the year, how perfect is that for a wedding or special event? This silvery blue-green shade is very on trend, not just in home interiors, but on the runway and in nature! This “Earthy and Elegant” palette from Hey Wedding Lady seems to be quite in the moment, wouldn’t you say?

Take a Nod from Nature

There are so many creative ways to approach this, it’s hard to choose just one picture to speak the thousand words. But this idea for place cards from La Crema winery wins. It’s so simple: just write guests names on leaves with a metallic pen.

Mini Meals

We love this for so many reasons. In addition to shaking up the food options for your guests, little bites like these are memorable, delicious and super fun. Snacks are the best.

Multi-Tasking Menu 

One of those ideas that makes you say: “Why didn’t I think of that?”  An event menu printed on a bread bag A) gives your guests a treat to take home (or snack on before the meal comes, B) saves on getting fancy printed paper menus that just get thrown away anyway, and C) provides a perfect photo op.

Perfect for outdoor or summer events, this event program works double duty. It makes the cost of getting programs printed worth it, and keeps your guests cool, too.

Because who wouldn’t want to put a popsicle in their glass of bubbly? In addition to being super cute, this is a creative way to make a kids’ snack into an "adults only” treat.  The French 75 "poptails" shown are especially awesome.

Food Favors

Send your guests home with a sentiment AND a snack! Whether it gets devoted on the ride home or becomes a sweet or savory reminder of your event, all you need is love. And a donut.

  1. At my wedding, all the guests (literally, all) told me how the food surpassed all expectations, since wedding food generally sucks. The brisket at wedding venues NYC was mind-blowing. My husband also had some custom choices for food that the chef easily made and incorporated.
