It’s no secret that fall is upon us…a most glorious season that means different things to different people. September signals the start of football mania…helllooooo Sunday games and fantasy teams. October tends to welcome the highly-anticipated pumpkin spiced everything. November practically begs you to break out that perfect pair of boots you’ve waited so patiently to wear. For us at FantaSea Yachts, fall typically means one thing…holiday party planning!
For us, this IS the most wonderful time of the year. We like to think of ourselves as little party elves working away to deliver the MOST amazing experience for our clients. And it varies with each event…from our clients who return year after year to Silicon Beach start-ups and corporate LA biz. Each party brings a different style and we LOVE executing each vision. Another thing we love? Taking note of popular trends that emerge during the party planning process.
With that, our general manager, Jasmine Lee, is sharing the top three “must dos” our team has noticed with this year’s holiday parties.
Speciality themed cocktails: This is such a fun, personalized detail that I don’t think will ever go out of style. It’s a given that the bar will be the party hot spot, so why not personalize the experience by creating a signature cocktail or two? Name one after the company CEO. Find a way to incorporate your company slogan or other aspects of your office culture. It will be the buzz (pun intended) of your soiree.
Lighting: This year, we’re seeing a lot of our clients have fun with their lighting. As they should! Lighting is a fantastic way to dazzle your guests. Some trends we’ve seen making a big statement are different variations of uplighting. But it doesn’t always have to be so grand. Smaller touches, like adding fairy lights to your centerpieces, can really make your event glow, creating a somewhat magical ambience that your guests will love.
Unique venues: It’s no secret that people choose FantaSea Yachts because they are looking for something different. A unique venue that will impress their guests…that WOW factor. But it’s more than just choosing FantaSea…it’s FUN to try something new. With a unique event space, your team will feel like they were honored with an exclusive experience…that inside scoop…making them feel like a true VIP.
So there you have it! Our top picks for 2016 holiday trends…thanks, Jasmine! Have you noticed any patterns or anything interesting as you’ve started your event planning? Share with us below!

Just wanted to share some of the extraordinary photos of Bar and Bat Mitzvahs produced by Robin Crevelt of In Any Event . We have the pleasure of seeing Robin at least a dozen times a year – she is truly a Mitzvah Maven! While holding many events with us over the years, she loves the Land and Sea combination, offering her clients the best of both worlds with a Cocktail Cruise aboard either the Dandeana or RegentSea and then a full blown Simcha in the FantaSea Yacht Club. Robin started her own event planning company nearly 20 years ago but continues to stay up to date, beyond current and even lunches with her mitzvah kids because they think she’s so cool. She takes special care of her clients, works for them like no other and always maintains the utmost professional stance while enjoying the evening that she scripts from start to finish. Whether hauling in her collection of amazing hand crafted centerpieces or lining up dancers on the floor, inspecting the dessert station for tastiness or taking care of all the “older young adults” Robin enjoys every aspect of the party planning world. In any event, Robin gets high marks with FantaSea Yachts and keeps us on our toes !
