Think outside the Booth!


Think outside the Booth!
By: Ronnie Lee / Cheers Events

Everyone loves Photo Booths. You know you do. How many weddings have you been to and enjoyed the fun that that little box creates? Even corporate events have them, complete with dress up additions such as boas, over sized sun glasses and novelty hats. They are fun and can get crazy since guests feel they are in a private area for a bit (they do forget that the client is getting a disk of all the pictures after the event though).

But what if you could turn your event into the Photo booth? Instead of waiting in line for your group to have a picture opportunity, you find a backdrop and take a group shot any where in the room. Then you move on to the bar and find a some of your friends and take a picture of them. What if every picture you took automatically was sent over to a secure website, that hosted a custom branded slide show. What if every guest could do the same thing? And all those pictures were instantly being streamed to the slide show that was being projected live at the event. Oh, and your video’s were also added to the mix!

That’s exactly what Cheers Events and WeVue are doing at the upcoming Art Pool Trashion Fashion show on this July, 19th. After downloading the event app WeVue,  guests can use their Iphones to preserve the moment live and have their pics be the center of attention for a second or two, until the next pic comes in from another guest. And if you don’t want your pics publicly shown, then just take a picture the usual way, without going through the app.

So come on out next Saturday and see all of the sights, sounds and friends of one of the most memorable events of the year! Hope to see you there.

3 Daughters Brewery

Helping to Create a one of a kind Venue

By: Ronnie Lee / Cheers Events

One of the most popular themes this year seems to be using unusual venues for events. So when we were asked to help transform the already outstanding 3 Daughters Brewery for a corporate event, we jumped and the opportunity. Sticking with the teal, metal and wooden elements of the venue, we brought in burlap for the cocktail tables surrounded with metal chairs, and teal runners to accent. Mason jar centerpieces were a small, playful touch. LED up lights slowly scrolled between teal and aqua to illuminate the huge silver canisters that the Brewery’s beers are made in, Foliage was brought in to bring the corners in and hide items that needed to disappear, such as work areas and mopping stations. To top it all off, burlap skirting touched up the stage and white drape with metal accents provided a stage backdrop. The trick is to highlight what is already there and create ambiance, but keep in mind that even though the event is in a brewery, it’s  still a corporate event.

Over 150 people arrived hungry, but that was no task for Urban Brews and BBQ. The menu they provided seemed to fit perfectly with the look and feel of 3 Daughters. If that wasn’t enough, two food trucks waited outside with more seating, picnic tables and games of Corn Toss and over sized Jenga!

Our client’s main concern was the heat, as the back of the brewery is not air conditioned. Misting fans were brought in and created a cool, breezy afternoon. Both roll up doors were opened also, allowing a natural breeze to lightly barrel through.

So next time your in the market for an original venue, take a peek at 3 Daughter’s. Oh, did I mention that they have pretty good beer! So if you haven’t been there, get on over  and enjoy everything they have to offer!

Beach and Bicycle Scavenger Hunt

AMGEN’s  Beach-N-Bicycle Scavenger Hunt Team Building

By: Karen Crockenburg / Event Manager for Cheers! Events

On Your Mark… Get Set… PEDDLE! 

Cheers Events has “Taken It To The Streets” this week with a one-of-a-kind custom Scavenger Hunt Team Building, specifically tailored to our client’s needs. This Beach-n-Bicycle Scavenger Hunt consisted of exactly what it implies; the Beach, Bicycles and a lot of Scavenging!  What were our client’s needs you ask?

  • Tour The Beach Community
  • Local History
  • Unique Bar Stops
  • A Mental Challenge

So we chose the beautiful and historical Pass-A-Grille Beach!  Where else could you find such charm and creative flair in a laid back, tropical paradise? This was the perfect setting for us to work our magic!

First we needed to rent the bicycles. Being that the Loews Don CeSar Hotel was our starting point, we found it advantageous that they were able to accommodate our group of 10 participants with beach cruisers, helmets and bicycle locks. When the group arrived, we divided them into 3 teams, delivered a quick tutorial and handed them their CLUE PACKETS.  These packets consisted of a color coded map that corresponded with their clues. Being that we were covering the whole island of Pass-A-Grille, it was important that they had a general vicinity of the location they were seeking. The clues were delivered in several forms: Word Scrambles, Picture Leads, Addresses, even a phone number to call. Teams were led to parks, historic buildings, quaint restaurants and flamboyant art galleries.

There was no shortage of fun with this group as they carried out the tasks at hand; Adopting a mascot, capturing another team’s bandana, frequent drink stops and the most challenging clue- counting the number of stairs in the climb to reach the famous Hurricane Restaurant’s third story Rooftop Deck!  Each team was awarded a certificate according to their unique talents. Categories such as “Most Likely To End Up At ATiki Bar”, “Fastest Bikes On The Beach” & “Most Team Spirit” seemed to fit the recipients perfectly! The overall winning team was given a handmade Pass-A-Grille treasure from the Merry Pier, the city’s hub for Boat Rentals and fishing. The hunt ended at the Loews Don CeSar’s very own Beachcomber Bar, where we gathered the teams up for a group picture on the sand.

Our company can specifically design a scavenger hunt to incorporate what’s on your agenda. We say ‘Bring It On Corporate America” and we are up for the challenge!

NACE Team Building at the Post Card Inn

NACE wedding team building

NACE Wedding Team Building

A Wedding to Remember…

By: Danielle Tieman, Event Manager at Cheers! Events

Our team at Cheers! Events had the pleasure of teaming up with the Post Card Inn to host the most recent NACE event. We decided to create something completely fresh and out of the box for these industry professionals, so we thought… let’s create a full fake wedding!

All of the NACE members who attended were split up into teams and each team was responsible for a different piece of the wedding such as the bride’s wedding dress and creating gorgeous centerpieces. These industry professionals had to put their everyday skills to the test and set, create and execute the wedding in 40 minutes!

This event could not have been as fun and successful without some of our fabulous vendors. The venue and catering were generously provided by Gina and her staff at the Post Card Inn. MaryIsabel from Isabel O’Neil Bridal Collection donated gorgeous wedding dresses to use as inspiration. Alicia from A + P Designs donated super cute programs which help us split each NACE member into teams. Shannon from Connie Duglin generously donated all of the linens for the dining tables as well as the linen options for each team.  James King from Grant Hemond, as always, brought the party with his music. Alla from Cake Zone donated a beautiful example cake and all the tools for the baking team to recreate her wedding cake. And let’s not forget the Bride Joanie Adams and the Groom Ian Prosser!

Everyone truly had a blast at this team building. Cheers! Events as well as myself are blessed to be able to host a NACE event and definitely look forward to the next one!

Corporate Carnival



A Match Made in Heaven

By: Renee Tarsantino / Event Planner at Cheers Events

Cheers Events recently joined forces with Tampa Bay Club Sport to create an amazing carnival style employee appreciation “Family Fun Day”  for a corporate company in St. Petersburg, Florida.

While Tampa Bay Club Sport and Cheers Events organized and planned the details, we have many others to thank for such a fantastic event. Our stilt walker/entertainer Fritzy was awesome!  He interacted with the 600-700 guests that attended and made each one smile. The kids were so impressed with his bicycling and ball walking skills. Action Promo brought out the bungee jump and bounce house, which is always popular at any event with children. It really gives the adults time to mingle while qualified attendants assured their safety. Cory Barron was our rockin’ DJ and the karaoke was a huge hit!  Get The Picture supplied the photo booth with lots of fun props and the guests really got creative with it. There were balloons from Rick at Balloon Productions and also popcorn, ice cream, motorized boats, face painters, balloon twisters and lots of fun carnival games with tons of prizes.

Everyone had a blast and working together with Tampa Bay Club Sport was a great success! Cheers Events greatly appreciates everyone that helps to make these events happen!

Digital mapping on the tent

Digital mapping on the tent

May 10th was the date for our 10th year Anniversary celebration at our warehouse. So many vendors helped make the day, the turn out was outstanding and it was a great time to be had by all!

We used video mapping to decorate the tent along with lighting. Our lighted 4 sided bar along with bartenders from uDream Events was the centerpiece. The Amsterdam bar supplied some delicious craft beer and CA Cafe delivered with some tasty apps.
