The Falling Leaves

Can you believe Fall is here?  The only reason I know for sure is my leaf-covered car that greets me every morning.  But it’s by far the best season.  A little rainy this year, but beautiful.    Perhaps you should consider planning an event. It’s clambake season, after all.  Who doesn’t love clams with the …

Shabbat Dinner Destinations

Back to school.  Back to mitzvah planning.  Mitzvahs or not, Shabbat dinners kicking off celebratory weekends strain the bandwidth of most people.  There are so many things to consider.

Vendor Spotlight – Marriott Cleveland East

I hear it time and again from many of my clients: I don’t want to go to a hotel; I want something different. I truly don’t think people realize how much you save by using the Marriott Cleveland East–time and dollars. Every table, every chair, the stage and more are included in your price. OMG, …

B’NAI MITZVAH BREAK TIME BUT A GREAT TIME TO PLAN

Here we are in June already. I can’t believe it. When June approaches, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs fade away…there’s that summer break thing with camp and camp and a little more camp—so we’re free and clear to mid or late August. Oh, and some families go on vacation. That said, this is when many parents …

It’s May, It’s May!

B’nai mitzvahs are winding down, kids are already thinking about summer camp and a lot of families are in the midst of planning graduation parties.  A graduation party and a bar/bat mitzvah are truly not that different.  They both represent a very important milestone. Some kids/parents definitely want a theme; the three most popular?  School …
