» WHAT PAIRS WELL WITH A COCKTAIL?

A Let’s Party! customized bev napkin!

 

An easy and inexpensive way to add a personalized touch to your event. 

 

We are absolutely obsessed with custom cocktail napkins!  Witty and silly to simple and chic,  we love getting to know each client and creating a unique design with the perfect caption for their event.  Here are just a few of our favs!

» WHO'S YOUR MOMMA? MARA IS!!

No problems, just solutions.

 

As Northern Virginia party planners, it was extremely flattering  to receive a call from TrueCar in Los Angeles and even more thrilling to learn that they were seeking help with their national Driven to Drive event.  Every year, TrueCar and AutoNation partner with the Disabled American Veterans to provide a retrofitted vehicle to a deserving veteran.  It was an honor to meet Mike Goodrich and help create an experience that he and his family will always cherish.  

Sometimes, no matter how much you plan, the “unexpected” occurs and it's one of the biggest reasons people hire professional coordinators.  There is a lot of value in knowing that you can trust your planners to come up with quick solutions for any last minute hiccups.                    

With just 10 minutes before press time, our client discovered that the cover they had planned to use wouldn’t fit the vehicle.  Mara, armed only with her cell phone and keys, jumped into the Let’s Party! mobile and raced over to Lamborghini Sterling.  She returned in 7 minutes flat with a gorgeous, "big reveal worthy" slip cover.  In true Mara form, she walked into the showroom asking “Who’s your Momma??”  Our impressed clients broke into an appreciative round of applause.   A memorable save thanks to her quick thinking and the generous and accommodating team at Lamborghini Sterling!

» UBER HAS NOTHING ON REBECCA WILLIAMS

Full service event planners that go the extra mile...

 

Our client was looking for outside the box ideas for her 40th birthday celebration.  A true Halloween party aficionado, she wanted something interesting, interactive, maybe a touch dark, and definitely memorable!  We brain-stormed many options and ultimately decided that The Retreat at Cool Springs, a stunning 1799 manor home in the beautiful countryside of Bluemont was the perfect setting!  The gorgeous mansion was lovingly restored and furnished by Suzanne Eblen, owner of Old Luckett’s Store, and has been featured in the Washingtonian Magazine.  It is a fantastic venue for specialty parties, girls’ weekends, weddings, and reunions.  Working in tandem with our client, we came up with a  “7 Deadly Sins” theme and joined forces with Murder Mysteries Will Travel to create a super fun “who done it” party!    

 

Our favorite memory?  The expansive lawn is generally available for parking and provides easy access to the impressive stone staircase leading to the historic Virginia mansion.  Unpredictably, it poured cats and dogs 24/7 that weekend!  The very best party planners are masterful problem solvers.  When parking became an issue, Mara kept the DJ spinning, the drinks flowing, and the catering by Zesty Gourmet refreshed.  Rebecca grabbed an umbrella and went into Uber mode, safely chauffeuring guests up and down the switchback hill to a paved parking lot. An unexpected opportunity to show our client and her guests how Let’s Party! will go the extra mile to make each and every event fabulous!
 

» WHAT'S YOUR JAM???

How do you set the tone for a 50th blowout for a 50 Cent super fan?

 

Imagine being greeted at the entrance with a Bacardi shooter station and the hip hop genius himself.  That’s just how we got this party started!  Ok, so it wasn’t the real 50 Cent, but it was a life-size cutout that our client had ordered and wanted to incorporate into a 50th birthday backyard bash for her and her husband.  Is there something that you love and just can’t live without for your event?  If it’s important to you, it’s important to us and we will find a way to make it work!   Check out the clip to see how we staged the most “on point” party entrance ever for this super fun couple... complete with the iconic birthday song “In da Club” in the background!
