Industry expert Brianna Ellis from The Sands at Atlantic Beach notes “interactive food stations such as “Action Stations” really make your guests enjoy ordering and choosing food options with their own personal twist.”

Located in the FlatIron District in Manhattan and listed in the National Register of Historic Places, The Prince George Ballroom is a feast for the eyes with its Beaux Arts style and Neo-Renaissance flourishes. In the spirit of tzedakah (charity), 100% of its net revenue is used for NYC outreach programs to help the homeless and other vulnerable New Yorkers.

You may be tempted to play it safe and stick to those white table linens. The truth is, splashes of color used in a bold way can have a stunning effect on your décor!

DIY Tip: There are lots of helpful instructions for making your own frame online. You can even attach a pipe to opposite walls and drape the fabric over it. Make sure your fabric panels are long enough to pool onto the floor. READ MORE ......→
