Creative Solutions: Not Your Average Rental Company

Did you know that Creative Solutions Special Events offers not only month of coordination, but full-service planning for weddings, corporate events, non-profit fundraisers and many other special events? While our bread and butter lies in the rental business, we feel the planning and coordination side is where we thrive! We love being able to see an event from start to finish, being a part of the initial concept all the way to the moment the lights go out.

One of our favorite events to plan and coordinate is the Holy Angels https://www.holyangelsnc.org/ annual fundraiser. Not only is Holy Angels an organization that serves the community in so many ways, but they know how to have fun – in style! We are so honored to be a part of such a prestigious and heartfelt cause.

Each year, Holy Angels hosts two back to back events: Monte Carlo Night and Grazie Mille Night, which means night of a million thanks, where they thank all of the influential people who donate and volunteer for their cause. Both events offer guests a magical, fun, uplifting experience where Holy Angels can showcase what it truly means to be an “angel”. Since the events are the same theme each year, it’s our job to ensure that they aren’t stale or repetitive. We meet with a committee to discuss color palette, floor plan, menu, vendors, etc. We then create inspiration boards that bring together all of the ideas that stand out – this will show linen choices, lighting, decor pieces, and props – the FUN stuff!!

Since the Holy Angels fundraiser conception, the team has used many of the same trusted vendors – Best Impressions Catering, Letty’s on Shamrock Bartending Service, Just Joey Games, Drew Parham Events, and of course, Creative Solutions just to name a few! We have the privilege of working directly with the vendors from start to finish, to ensure that every last detail is taken care of. We place orders, create timelines, draw up floor plans, and answer any questions they may have.

Finally, after many months of planning, a few days of set up, and all of the hard work between each vendor, each volunteer, and every angel involved has come down to this. Showtime! Creative Solutions gets a front row seat to the action, seeing each guest arrive in their beautiful gowns and tuxes, hearing the music rev up, and witnessing the fellowship and altruism of everyone involved.

If you have not heard of Holy Angels, please take a look at their website to see the amazing work they do, and we hope to see you this year at the annual fundraiser! https://www.holyangelsnc.org/
