A
fter the past several
years where
holiday parties
were decidedly
low-key and restrained-if
they happened at all-this
year's celebrations have
been positively giddy. This
is an exciting change for
event planners who of course
welcome not only the business
but also the chance to let their
imaginations run free, creating
events that keep people
engaged and snapping photos
to post on social media.
Components like food and beverage
stations, and even somewhat smaller
elements like glassware and ÓŹźlatware,
not only offer ample statement-making
opportunities, they can turn a so-so
event into something memorable
and worth documenting. Let's take
a look at some of the trends in play
when it comes to these contributors
at events and holiday gatherings.
GLASSWARE AND

parties are incorporating professional
mixologists and exotic, signaturenamed
drinks served in specialty rental
glasses that range from unique and
whimsical to traditional cut crystal.
Emily Archbold, senior event planner
for Evantine Design Inc., a Philadelphia,
Pa.-based full-service special event, design,
production and planning company, says
her company is seeing a big demand for
specialty glassware, driven by the interest
in signature cocktails. Also, rather than
serving all wine varietals in a generic wine
glass, more people are requesting both
white wine and red wine glasses.
" Ultimately, though, it comes down
to this concept: the level and variety
of beverages being offered at the bar
should coincide with the glassware it's
served in, " says Archbold.
Sara Murray, owner and creative
director of confetti & co., agrees. Located
in Philadelphia, Pa., Murray offers event
planning and design services primarily
to wedding clients.
" We've seen that a lot of cocktails
themselves dictate the glassware, so
we've been seeing a lot of Aperol Spritz in
sweet coupes, and champagne always in
