Tented events take experience to execute flawlessly: power, bathroom trailers, event lighting, décor etc. must be designed, ordered and trucked in. Planning two back to back events in the same tent 15 hours apart adds another level of complexity!

If you read our blog often, you know the Corinthian Events team never backs away from a challenge; we dive in head first. To create two back to back events with a different look and feel, and new experience for guests attending both events takes meticulous planning.

Friday evening was a clambake party for 500 guests. This night was all about good food, drinks and most importantly, catching up with old friends. Upon arrival guests sampled Allagash beers from the keg wall and fresh oysters served up by Island Creek Oysters. Inside the tent, guests chatted over drinks at a large central bar, and enjoyed their NE Clambake by Woodman's of Essex at a mix of long wood farm tables and rounds. Linens were a mix of traditional picnic check and a fun lobster print; a festive red, white and yellow palette. Coordinating lanterns and bistro lighting created a soft glow throughout the tent.

Party-goers lingered until late in the evening – and once all the guests had departed – the transition began! With so many moving parts, we kept our vendors firmly in the know to ensure no one stepped on another's toes.

Trash was collected, clambake linens were packed, paper lanterns were swapped out, the stage and bar were removed and the table layout was adjusted. With our new floorplan in place – updated décor was added to complete the transformation.

Saturday's event was a sophisticated yet whimsical luncheon accented with bright patterns and pops of pigmented colors; teal, pink, and yellow was the new palette. New lanterns were brought in to go with the new color scheme along with bright colored linens, custom menus and new signage.

What made this flip so successful? Besides a well-planned production schedule and team support and corporation – we ordered plenty of coffee!
