Tara Guerard on Throwing Great Parties

Monday, August 23, 2010

When we first asked Tara Guerard to speak at our Academy, we gave her the topic of Spatial Planning. She ended up teaching that, AND the ins and outs of how to throw a great party, so our students definitely got a lot out of her! To design a fabulous party, you can't just focus on decor. You have to design with the guest experience in mind. Tara talks about her view to never use dinner tables bigger than 54". Why? Because you simply can't have great conversation around a table that's bigger than that. It was incredibly thought-provoking and interesting to hear the thought process that Tara goes through when she designs events for her clients. Every detail is well thought out, down to the cocktail napkins at the bar.

Tara has published two books already that's filled with eye candy from beginning to end. She was recently interviewed by Martha Stewart (see article below) and we are extremely honored that she is a part of our Wedding 360 faculty. For those of you who did not make it to The Academy earlier this year, Tara's presentation can now be purchased and viewable on our Wedding 360 Online Academy!
