Troy Offers Planners the Full Package

The biggest challenge to planning an event in Troy might be decision fatigue. The city’s abundant venue choices make it hard to go wrong in this upscale city. The Oakland County destination offers high-end shopping, numerous hotels and an easy drive to area attractions, including Cranbrook Educational Community.

New Venue Spotlight: Selden Standard

SELDEN STANDARD IS PACKING THEM IN. The restaurant, a project of Andy Hollyday, former executive chef at Roast, and Evan Hansen, opened in Midtown in November, and the public promptly lost its collective mind. Reviewers raved. Lines of people waiting for seats snaked out the door in the snow.

The tapas-style dining lets diners bond over shared, handcrafted meals and, happily for planners, the restaurant opened ready to host meetings and events.

Instagram Inspiration

Just as writers experience the dreaded writer’s block, event planners, too, can get stuck in a rut. The Internet is a great place for sparking ideas, but options are limitless. How does one find inspiration with so many different things to search? Pinterest is a classic go-to, but Instagram might be the stronger choice. Instead of scrolling through an endless amount of pictures—some relevant and others completely useless—following someone you admire will give you more successful ideas you can incorporate into your events. We’ve listed a few accounts that boast exceptional ideas.
