? Embark on a Journey of Creativity with Lesley from LP Events! ?

Hey party enthusiasts! Are you ready to take your events to new heights? Join us as we dive into the world of themed dinner parties and events with Lesley, the brilliant mind behind LP Events, Calgary's go-to event planning company for turning ordinary gatherings into extraordinary experiences.

With Lesley's keen eye for detail and knack for creativity, LP Events has been orchestrating unforgettable themed parties for a diverse clientele, ranging from corporate galas to intimate home soirées. Today, we're thrilled to sit down with Lesley and pick her brain on some exciting party ideas and entertainment options.

Q: What are some unique and creative themed party ideas for home dinner parties, and how do you ensure that the theme is seamlessly integrated into every aspect of the event?

Lesley:"What I think is important to find out is what the theme is, because I think people sometimes have a tendency to set unrealistic goals. If we set the goals and the expectations in advance, that makes a seamless themed event. What I also tell my clients is that if you are going to do a theme, you need to go all out. It can’t be just small little pieces of the puzzle in a theme you need to actually create that entire theme throughout the entire event. Whether the event is in your home or in a hall. A theme really needs to have every aspect, from food, entertainment, decor, to even photography. Everything needs to be branded in that particular theme."

Lesley also shared with us that there's a buzz in Calgary surrounding Scotch & Cigar-themed social parties, along with a rise in Marvel-themed events for adults.

Q: What entertainment options would you recommend for home dinner parties to keep guests engaged and entertained throughout the event?

Lesley:"You could always say a DJ, they never seem to go out of style. What I like now is the small bands that are coming in as a 2 or 3 piece, even if it is a speakeasy we’ve had just an acoustic jazz singer. Live entertainment is starting to become more popular again and the price point isn’t a big amount of money. Again I always state that when you are doing a theme it has to be everything so if we are doing the cigar and scotch tasting we want to make sure that the entertainment matches that, we’ve brought in an amazing jazz singer that lives in Montreal now and he comes out to a lot of our home parties."

Lesley's expertise and passion for thematic excellence shine through in every aspect of her event planning. Join us as we uncover more insider tips and inspiration from Lesley on creating unforgettable themed parties and events! ?
