The Six Month Rule

The holiday calendar at A Legendary Event fills up very quickly so an appropriate quote for this time of the year comes from an anonymous source: “All the flowers of all the tomorrows are in the seeds of today.”  In other words—it’s never too soon to start planning for your Holiday party.  By the time you read this, some of our clients will have already spoken to our design and floral departments; others are even finalizing their holiday soiree menu choices. One of our clients commented, “Once I get the ball rolling with my initial phone call, I actually kind of enjoy the planning process.”  She says she relies on a “six month rule.” She’ll begin planning for her holiday events in mid-June “no matter how large or small the gathering.” That way, by the time the party time rolls around, she’s relaxed and can actually enjoy the company of the guests. “Besides,” she says, “who likes an uptight host?” Though the Six-Month Rule may seem a bit premature, when considering all of the elements necessary for successful event:  invitations, venue selection, event and floral design, music choice and menu selection—it’s never too early to plant for the “flowers of all the tomorrows.”
