Give Your Event Space More Space

When it comes to event planning, the space is everything. From decor to seating arrangements, a truly beautiful event space can make a huge impression for your clients and their guests.

Sometimes, however, you won’t get the large, wide-open space you want. Whether it’s because of smaller budgets, peak event season, or fewer options in your area, sometimes we event planners have to “make do.

So what do you do when you’re working with a small space, and how can you put on a great event that feels big (even if it’s not)?
