A Legendary Event kicked off a fabulous magazine launch and spread in the recent November Delta Sky magazine, which had a spectacular insert all about Atlanta!

Delta also featured Tony’s upcoming award honor for his dedication to A Meal To Remember befitting Senior Citizen Services of Atlanta. This issue is filled with many positive articles written on how great the city of Atlanta is and where we are headed in the future. Without question, Atlanta will be Delta’s travelers next destination after reading this exciting article and we’re very proud of Tony and A Legendary Event for the unending dedication to giving back.

Yesterday, Steve Welsh was quoted in Special Event’s Eventline e-newsletter: Steve Welsh, creative director of Atlanta-based A Legendary Event, explains that his big corporate clients insist on green practices from all their vendors. “There are many tax breaks and other incentive program that these companies receive if they reach their green goal,” he notes. And green events get great PR, he adds: “Do a great green event and you’ll make the front page.”
Welsh is right. In addition to being featured in the Spring issue of Delta Sky Magazine, A Legendary Event’s “Sustainable Table” recently won Best Guest Table Presentation of the Year from the National Association of Catering Executives.

We asked award-winning event planner Tony Conway for the latest buzz on the party circuit: When it comes to food and dining, there are food trends, décor trends and architecture trends. But do you give much thought to the table? Trust me, all good hosts (event planners, restaurateurs and those gathering friends in their home) pay as much attention to the details of the table setting and serving wares as they do to what they serve.
Current Trends: Instead of spending money on party items likely to be discarded later, access the rich vault of your personal possessions. To combat depleting reserves and a topsy-turvy economy, floral designer Kim Vasil, of Atlanta, has focused her current work on “sustainable tables” for parties and events. Recently, Vasil pavéd an entire table surface with wheat grass, then added a series of vignettes using hearty succulents, cacti and unique ground cover such as hens-and-chicks, flapjack succulents and creeping sedum. She even suggests using what you already have—dig up something from your garden to use as a centerpiece or use antiques that are chock-full of character. Personality always creates a lasting impression. And with the all-around “green” trend, your table and party will be right in step.
