TwoFoot Creative Gets a Refresh

I first encountered Ana Skidmore at the EPIC Awards. I was new to the magazine, and attending the awards for the first time. (They were at The Henry Ford that year.) It seemed like every nomination included a company called TwoFoot Creative (a full-service planning company), and a good number of the winners did, too.

“It was an honor to welcome the Rams Legends as our very first guests at the eagerly awaited phase one opening of Shade Redondo Beach,” said Michael Zislis, owner of Shade Hotels. “We are excited to have the Rams back in Los Angeles, and it was a magical way to celebrate the pinnacle opening of our newest Shade Hotel.”

Hotel du Village Reopens after Renovations

Hotel du Village captures the beauty and romance of the French countryside and places it squarely in the charming and creative hamlet of New Hope. It’s long been a New Hope landmark, beloved by visitors and residents, many of whom spent Thanksgiving dinner around a table at the hotel’s restaurant, so it was naturally met with curiosity when Hotel du Village was sold in 2013.

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.
