~ A Few Notes for the Holiday Season ~
By Rick of The Private Professionals

Archives of our seasonal newsletter are now available on Blogspot.

Without doubt, we realize all too well how important your events are. It's your moment to shine, so we're committed to ensure a level of service that's of the highest standard for the anyone in the industry.

In that spirit, we've updated our website, revised the party planner, expanded our team with top talent, & have recently launched a party blog to archive past newsletters & relevant content (see ThePrivatePros.blogspot.com).


As expected, the holidays are booking fast but we DO have availability throughout the month. Just please note that we're sticking w/ our core team & will not be staff up for the Holidays (I feel it's critically important that we only work with quality partners so I prefer to run with a lean staff of true professionals).

In the meantime, I'd like to wish everyone a very happy holiday season.  If there's anything we can do to for you or any friends & associates then please don't hesitate to call.

In the meantime, I hope the holiday season finds you healthy, happy, & prosperous in all that you hope to be.

---------------------------------------  Extra!  Extra!  -----------------------------------

We recently marked our TENTH year in operation! Averaging around 240 parties / year, we've learned a great deal & continue to progress as the months press forward. Indeed, we not only handle parties for our valued clients but also host events of our own.

Each year Metro Events host 3 grand balls (complete with 6 DJ's over 3 levels, national & local talent, fashion shows, fire performers, GoGo's, plus various enticements throughout the evening). Hosted for around 850, they are indeed lavish affairs of a grand proportion.

So be it a private affair or full scale event, just imagine what we can do for you! 

------------------- A Few Notes to Make Your Smaller Affair More Special -------------------

I've discovered how flexible Raspberry Lemonade is as a mixer. It's AWESOME w/ Ciroc Wild Berry Vodka or Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka. It also blends well w/ Malibu for something different.

Another fun thing to play with is Lemonata by San Pellegrino (it's basically a sparkling water lemon drink). This makes a blend w/ either V.S. grade Cognac or Sweet Tea Vodka. Equally well as a nice twist on classic designer martinis.

How about something more festive like Champagne w/ a good splash of Limoncello? Garnish w/ a twist for appearance & appeal.

On the buffet, nothing sparkles or adds a touch of elegance like a string of white X-mas lights snaking through your favorite dishes. It adds a beautiful glow & touch of festive elegance to any setting. Also, placing small boxes or dishes under the table cloth can add height, depth, & dimension for a more professional look. Toss in some greenery & pine cones for a perfect blend of holiday accent & you've created a beautiful buffet that would perfectly accent your offerings!

Keep in mind that parties with a larger crowd usually translates to limited seating so your best option is for finger food or items that don't require much work & effort to cut. If you're only offering a dessert buffet then be sure to mention that in your invites. Often people won't eat expecting to grab a bite at your party.

If there's anything we can do to be of assistance then please don't hesitate to call.
