Hey Girls lets party

This party idea came right from the birthday girl. Wanting to make her Bat Mitzvah totally her own she chose to incorporate her party date into the name of her party club hence “CLUB 222”  The  Renaissance Indianapolis North Hotel did a beautiful job transforming their venue into Lime green & Hot Pink disco complete with multi color lit dance floor. Adding a  green screen photo shoot brought big time big city excitement to the club.

Fun ideas for corporate events




Making your corporate event fun for the family


Father and children having fun

Smile it’s a family photo op

When “Take your kids to work day” won’t work for your corporation consider implementing the idea of a plant tour into your Family picnic or Family fest.  Working with Fun Services out of  Wood Haven MI we brought in a fun way to check out what their mom and dads do at Johnson Controls. The event committees initial idea was for a “step and repeat” photo shoot but when we arrived the area and backdrop didn’t fit so we went to work creating a digital background and setting up a green screen photo station. To the delight of the organizers and their guests, the High Tech use of digital special effects added to the high tech theme of what Johnson Controls does every day.

The New Miss Michigan’s red carpet escort? Punchy?

        The Spartan Stores put on one of the funnest trade shows I’ve ever attended (and that’s boo-coo). Hats off to the folks in charge of set up!

The theme was Casino Night, the decorations and layout were perfect, and the number of celebs they brought in for free photo ops made it a blast. Big Lyle’s provided the custom backgrounds for the green-screen event photography and teaming with Spartan Stores, Snapple, and Fox Sports Detroit, every guest walked away with a picture of themselves with a Michigan sports legend.Tiger Pitcher Dave ” Rosie” Rozema, MSU’s Mateen Cleaves, Lions great, Luther Ellis, and The newly crowned Miss Michigan, Haley Williams were on hand for pics and autographs and they were all so personable and FUN it made the show!

For an Event to Remember:

~Start with a great venue. Devos Hall is a nice one, easy in and out, the staff is super,(thanks Fred the electrician), always be nice to the electrician, I say again Always be nice to the electrician.

~ Lay out is extremely important, tall curtained backdrops to divide the aisles and cover the walls makes a cozier, professional appearance.

~Follow your theme thru, bring in Gladiators and Romans to mingle just like Caesars in Vegas, (and Spartan Stores of course) guests love a pic with anybody in costume, and celebs, and celeb look-a-likes.

~Good eats of course, but go the next step and have staff circulating with hors d’oeuvres to really make attendees feel special.

~Tie it down with the perfect marketing tool for trade shows and events. A souvenir photo of your guests having a blast on a background customized for you, with your LOGO on the picture! Bam that pic is on their social media sight being shared with others before they leave your show. Ain’t technology wonderful. Guests look forward to their annual pic at the shows we regularly do for clients.

~Big Lyle’s motto is “Your event a success when it’s fun for your guests” and Spartan Stores really hit the mark.
