I’ve been doing events since high school (which was a LONG time ago!) and went to school for Hospitality at Chico State. I’ve worked and done events for City of Pleasanton, City of Dublin, Robert Half International, and Wente Vineyards prior to finding my home at Beets Hospitality Group. I love hosting and planning parties so events were a perfect fit for me!

Bria + Ryan’s Pleasanton Wedding Featured on PartySlate

Be still our hearts! We were thrilled to see Bria and Ryan’s gorgeous Casa Real wedding featured on PartySlate in all of its glory.

Now, the photos below are just a glimpse of the reception. But wait until you see the romantic ceremony setup and the stunning outdoor lounge space! The combination of draping, greenery, candlelight, and plush furniture is truly a scene to behold.

Oh, and did we mention the nacho bar decked out with all the fixings? It was the perfect match to Bria and Ryan’s two signature cocktails: negronis and margaritas. If that doesn’t sound like a party to remember, we don’t know what does.

Guests were truly treated to an inviting celebration of the newlyweds, complete with a bottle of red wine to take home!

See the full feature on PartySlate here!

4 Clever Holiday Event Décor Ideas

The holiday season is upon us! This is the perfect time to celebrate and create wonderful memories that you and your loved ones will remember fondly for years to come. If you’re planning a holiday event this time of year, make sure to bring the cheer! You can start by adding some decorative elements and embellishments to your venue to create a welcoming and festive vibe.

Venue: Casa Real

Are you struggling to figure out how to decorate your holiday event? This blog post is perfect for you! Read on for tips and ideas to get your holiday event just right.

Wow your guests with interactive food stations

An excellent way to impress your guests is with carefully selected, interactive food stations. These can complement your traditional catering, plus you can jazz them up with thematic décor. The idea is to offer variety and interactivity by getting your guests involved as they prepare their own food or beverage.

Since the holiday season always calls for hot drinks, you can set up a bar where guests can make their own hot chocolate or peppermint coffee. And for eventgoers with a sweet tooth, you can prepare a buffet of holiday treats like sugar cookies, gingerbread biscuits, and cupcakes they can decorate before eating! 

Not only do these food stations offer guests a unique and fun experience, but they also encourage them to mingle.

Adorn your holiday event space with natural elements

A few pinecones, chestnuts, berries, and sprigs of greenery can add some flair to your holiday décor. By using natural elements, you are able to set a warm and cozy mood, and we all know that this is what the holidays are all about!

Have fun with holiday event signage

The signage at your event serves various functions. They can provide information, directions, and even reminders to your guests. But don’t forget to make sure they match your theme to tie the look of your holiday event together!

Consider alluding to Santa, the holidays, Christmas, Chanukah, or winter when crafting your signage. For instance, imagine calling an interactive food station, the Elf-Service Station (Get it? Self-service)! Or, you could add a touch of humor to your decor with “better not pout” tabletop signs. 

These are just a few fun ideas to get your creative juices flowing, but the possibilities are endless!

Place some hanging string lights

If you’re going for a winter wonderland feel for your holiday event, try hanging some ice blue, bright white, or warm white string lights to create the perfect ambiance. You can also opt to buy string lights with a snowflake design. With the proper lighting, you are sure to keep things merry and bright!

Regardless of how you decorate your holiday event, remember to strive for a consistent and cohesive look for your event. Choose a theme and matching color palette, then stick to them. Happy holidays!

Alongside bountiful blooms, champagne uplighting and creamy drapery softened the ceremony space at Casa Real for the perfect setting to say “I do.” In addition, we love how the elaborate ceremony arch played double duty at the sweetheart table during the reception!

Photo of the Week: Glittering Starburst Chandelier

Be still our hearts — our starburst chandelier really showed out for this sweet Indian wedding at Casa Real!

A custom monogrammed dance floor. Floor-to-ceiling taffeta drapery behind a mandap bursting with blooms. A glittering starburst chandelier to catch everyone’s eye. Lush centerpieces bursting with bold colors. These are the ingredients for a wedding dream come true!

Photo of the Week: Flawless First Dance

The first dance is a monumental moment of a wedding day, and it’s only right to have the perfect dance floor to fit it!

first dance

This beautiful couple transformed Casa Real with an elevated dance floor, crystal chandeliers, and a sweetheart lounge that is just bursting with blooms. How’s that for a perfect setting to dance away into your happily ever after?

Photo of the Day: Sophisticated Minimalist

This beautiful minimalist design is proof that less can definitely be more! While we always appreciate a grand design bursting with blooms and other bold design elements, there is something special about a minimal design. It allows love to take center stage and create an intimate atmosphere for all to enjoy.

minimalist

We are big fans of Casa Real to begin with, so we know their space is lovely as-is. (Seriously, it’s the perfect blank slate to dress up!) But, can we take a moment to appreciate this glam minimalist vibe? Simply exquisite.

Oh, and let’s not miss that lovely white floral cake suspension staged with champagne uplighting! Color us speechless – but who needs words when you can convey meaning with a minimalist sophisticated look like this?

Between a crystal chandelier dripping overhead, luxurious white and cream lounge spaces, and chic gold candle arrangements, this sweet couple transformed the space into a romantic retreat made to celebrate their love. And, of course, there is no better way to seal the deal than with a kiss!

Cheers to customizing a space that is perfect for you and sweetheart to say “I do” and kick off your next chapter together on the right foot. Pop the bubbly!

Photo of the Week: Serene Greenery

Bring on the greenery! If serenity were a picture, this is what it would look like: Two heartbeats becoming one rhythm.

greenery

This lovely couple hosted their reception at the beautiful Casa Real. Our rustic wooden beam Edison chandelier is the perfect counterpart to the delicate greenery and white florals that represent harmony and balance. Doesn’t get more serene than that, wouldn’t you say?

(Oh, and did you peep our reclaimed barn wood panel wall serving as the perfect sweetheart table backdrop?)
