The Importance Of Music For Events

If there is one thing that the vast majority of parties and events have in common is that there is typically music involved. When it comes to planning events, one of the different aspects of the event that has to be figured out is the music. Not too long ago, people had to make sure that they had a DJ that could provide the music to keep people entertained. While in most cases, the DJ only has to play the music, there are certain times when there is the need for a more creative DJ in order to provide the mixing.

Now, all one needs to do is to set up a playlist. It is easy to set something up that will last for hours. All one needs is a device. In some cases, he could use internet access. However, it is probably better to have some files saved up so that he could more likely play the tracks without any interruptions. For people that are looking for a more creative playlist, there are tons of files that have different mixes of certain songs. Therefore, one just has to look for files to download. He could take the time to put together songs that have the same tempo for instance. He can find an event planning company in NYC to help with this if need be.

Among the event planners in NYC is Twenty Three Layers. The experts of this company know how to provide the mixes needed to make sure people are highly engaged in the party. 23 Layers has years of experience in planning parties and events of many different sizes. This is why they can be trusted for even the largest events. They know how to figure out the right type of sound system for the event.

Teddy's Birthday

A Flower For Every Party

What does it take to throw an epically memorable party? According to DeJuan Stroud, who has planned some major events, environment, elements to hold attention and lighting are three major parts of the party planning process.

Mr. Stroud has great vision, passion and has first hand experience bringing people together. Telling Culture Map recently, “Number one is an exciting environment that also makes people comfortable as they settle into the party. Number two is elements that hold people’s attention. And number three is lighting that makes everyone look good.”

Southern charm with a touch of high class, to create a family style food service is the trendsetting party process according to DeJuan’s conversation with Culture Map’s, Shelby Hodge of Houston. Saying of current trends towards parties, “Family style food service – even for black tie events. Varying the types of seating at an event — long tables, round tables, banquette seating, and long high top tables, lounge seating – all at the same event. Flower arrangements that are simplified, perhaps containing only one type of flower.”

Flowers are the signature for success in DeJaun Stroud’s parties and events. Events thrown for memorable names like Bon Jovi and Donald Trump. You can get a captivating glimpse of some of these astounding pieces of floral art in his new coffee table book, ”Designing Life’s Celebrations.” This book delves in to his world of using a fascinating floral focus to create theme and memorable moments at any event. Mr. Stroud’s book includes some simple teaching tools to make your next party more memorable and colorful.

Event planning production and design is not all flowers and lighting. Companies like Twenty Three Layers based in New York City offer services that blend seamlessly with the same kinds of philosophies brought in by Dejuan Stroud and his vision.
