One of the most recent weddings we had took place at the infamous, Harold Washington Library.  This a grand and historic venue that we at Liven It Up Events love to work at!  Misha Newgren, Senior Planner, had the pleasure of working with Gabi from Harry Caray’s who was the caterer and created a great menu for a fun crowd of folks.  Along with them, the teams from Art of Imagination & Cattleya Designs were on board to help create a great feel and ambiance in the room.  In this post, there are just a couple of the room shots we were able to snap!

Tuesday’s Tip: Having a Sushi Station at a Party Can be Fun!
October 9, 2012

Fun Sushi Station

One of my favorite things to do at any event is a sushi station.  This is still a fun way for your guests to interact with each other, and it’s always a huge hit!  There are so many variations on how to create a sushi station, but the key is to hire a professional restaurant that cannot only be creative but can also deliver AMAZING sushi.  One of my favorite local spots in Chicago is Thalia Spice.  I worked with Thalia on may events and their sushi is always a hit!  Their restaurant is also a great spot for dinner!

Thalia Spice is also one our sponsors for Art of Home, 2012, at the Zhou B. Arts Center.  To learn more or purchase your tickets, visit the Lakeside Community Development Website here!
