Beyond the Essentials – Inspiration Boards

Are you planning an event (baby shower, wedding, birthday party) but aren’t sure how to develop your theme or idea? Leave a comment or send an email to and I’ll develop an Inspiration Board post surrounding your theme or idea.


Welcome to Beyond the Essentials

Welcome to Beyond the Essentials, a blog and business created to provide event ideas, consulting and inspiration proposals. As an event management professional for over 6 years, I am constantly searching and coming up with great ideas for events and I decided to start this blog to display the ideas I’ve come across, share the lessons I’ve learned and provide the resources I’ve created and used through the years. Having planned numerous corporate, non profit and social events, it is the aim of Beyond the Essentials to provide the resources and ideas to create a fabulous event on any budget no matter how big or small.

Follow Beyond the Essentials to find fabulous ideas for the important events of our lives including birthday parties for the young and old, bridal and baby showers, bar and bat mitzvahs, themed parties, weddings and much more.

You can not only count on Beyond the Essentials for some new and creative ideas for your events. You can count on Beyond the Essentials to provide important and key resources such as timelines, how to skim down a budget, the pros and cons of various event pieces, vendor suggestions and many more valuable resources you can use and tailor for all of your events.

Thank you for joining me on this creative journey.
