They say you can tell a lot about a woman by what she carries
in her purse. I agree, considering if you looked inside Meaghan’s purse, you
would find neon band-aids, some tie dye wayfarer flip-up sunglasses, packs of
gum, Events North business cards and an apple at all times. Meaghan likes to
think this says she is “fun, but prepared!”
Our trusty event box!
While Events North does not have a “Purse,” we consider our event box to be a huge reflection on who exactly we are. Our event box is on
site with us at every event we manage and is an excellent example of the things
we carry. So, we decided that devoting a blog post to our beloved event box
would give you a little better look into our lives.
So, here are some of the things we carry in our event box:
Just a few of the things we have inside our event box.
·Tic Tacs: fresh breath is a must.
·Clippers: A.K.A. an event planner’s BFF. These
snip even the toughest of materials. Zip ties, metal…our clippers can conquer.
·Corkscrew: you never know when the bar is going
to need an extra!
·Exacto knives (in floral prints of course).
·Lighters: We guarantee that your candles will
remain lit so your event will be sure to get glowing reviews (We couldn’t
resist the pun).
·Flash light: You never know when you’re going to
need that extra bit of light.
·Tide to go: Stain free is the only way to be…plus,
red wine + white wedding dresses sometimes= disaster. We have you covered.
·Memory card: To be sure that we capture each and
·Duct Tape: Multiple rolls. We promise things
will not fall apart on our watch.
·Tool kit: “Can we fix it?! YES WE CAN!”
·Paper clips, tacs, safety pins, post-its, pens,
pencils, sharpies, stapler: Our event box also doubles as an on-the-go office!
·Zots: glue dots that hold things down to protect them from wind. They are one of our favorite discoveries to date. If you have not
experienced Zots, please remedy this immediately.
·Zip ties: Zip ties just hold it all together!
Whether we need them to hold banners, tie together materials, etc.- Zip ties
are always an excellent solution!
·Kleenex: For both touching moments and touch ups.
Yes, we do tend to cry at your wedding ceremony.
·Rhinestones: You can never have enough sparkle!
·Ribbon: Last minute details are no issue for us!
·Make up: We want to make sure to look good while
we make your event look great!
Our box is crucial to our event success. It’s always better
to be over-prepared than to have to rush and collect materials last minute. I
hope by getting a look into our event box, you have an even better idea of who
Events North is and what we do!
