Another Insider Tip!

Time for another installment of "insider tips" from owner and operator of JP Event Design - Judy Moore!

• Have your reception at a RESTAURANT! Yes, I said a restaurant. As a former director of events for one of Philadelphia’s premier restaurants, I know firsthand how much money brides can save by having their reception at a restaurant. Restaurants are one stop shops – the venue, food, and beverage is all included in one price – no hidden rental fees, bartender fees, catering fees. Etc. Usually restaurant chef’s can accommodate any menu, not just the menu they serve on a regular basis. Also, there are SO many unique restaurants in Philadelphia – the list is almost endless, from tropical themed, upscale, modern, classic, urban, chic, you can find a Philadelphia restaurant that will totally reflect your style. Not to mention, how much you will save on d├ęcor! Restaurants spend tons of money on decor – you will barely have to do a thing – the ambiance, lighting, and style are already built in. My favorite new restaurant in Philly is Union Trust – a former US Mint building converted into a stunning restaurant complete with original century old architecture completely restored – its is gorgeous – a perfect choice for a reception or rehearsal dinner. Another favorite – MELT in Center Valley, PA.

See photos and get inspiration from Lisa & Rob's wedding that took place at Marsha Brown's Restaurant in New Hope, PA!

Chase's Bar Mitzvah

We were so excited to be apart of such a special day for Chase and his family.
In keeping with the sports theme of the party, we custom designed posters, which were signed by all of the guests. The centerpieces consisted of jerseys, miniature hockey sticks and baseball bats as well as pennants from some of Chase's favorite teams. We also custom designed the place cards with photos of Chase to give them an "official ticket" feel!

We were so happy to be part of the day - Mozel Tov Chase!
