Felici Fanfare - Find out what Zohe and Co. are making a big whoop about!
On February 16, Felici Events showcased a vibrant display of neon colors at a graffiti grunge themed bat mitzvah. SOhO Restaurant and Music Club was the perfect venue for this upbeat, energetic celebration.
Upon their arrival, guests were immediately introduced to the fun theme by enormous graffiti banners lining the entryway.
Place cards were creatively displayed to mock an urban brick wall splattered with eye-catching neon graffiti.
As the adults were seated for dinner, they were blown away by the vibrant centerpieces by Juniper Designs. These gorgeous floral arrangements matched the color scheme flawlessly, as did the beautiful linens by La Tavola Fine Linen Rental.
Guests enjoyed the party from the outdoor patio beneath a tasteful covered tent provided by Classic Party Rentals. It featured a spectacle of decorated hanging lanterns and colorful lights, catching the attention of locals passing by the event.
Combined with the infectious enthusiasm of the H2H team, all of these elements contributed to an unforgettably fun and unique event! All photographs were provided by the amazingly talented Kelsey Crews of Kelsey Crews Photo.
On the chilly night of February 22, nothing pleased the Felici Events team more than being greeted at Rincon Beach Club by a friendly face and a margarita on the rocks! The tasting event was a night to remember, with an endless supply of exemplary food and an impressive selection of wedding ceremony set ups, and lounge and table settings. Rincon Beach Club never ceases to amaze us and the tasting event was no exception.
These playful beach themed place cards were complete with smooth sand and seashells. They presented other creative options suitable for a wide variety of event themes.
These simple place cards were tied with delicate ribbons and dangled from colorful knobs.
Beyond the entryway was a spacious patio displaying an impressive selection of wedding ceremony set ups, table settings, and lounge spaces.
This wedding ceremony set up embodied a bride’s dream of a fairytale beach wedding. The delicate white and light pink ribbons caught the salty breeze, adding a sweet, dreamlike tone to the setting.
The other option was a simpler approach, detailed with a flowing white curtain secured with large sea stars.
Keeping with the general beach theme, the mason jar flower holders were reminiscent of treasured sea glass. Clear glass candleholders and jars hanging from a mossy piece of driftwood tied the playful table setting together.
The roomier lounge space consisting of luxurious leather couches and ottomans offered a perfect place for party guests to relax in comfort.
The other lounge option featured an inviting space for guests to cuddle next to a cozy fireplace on inviting leather couches.
A range of uniquely themed food stations was placed throughout the room, including Pacific Rim and Hamburger Sliders, among others. Each station was decorated with an extraordinary attention to detail, and exemplified Rincon’s versatility and unmatched ability to adapt to any event’s theme. The Pacific Rim station was adorned with colorful Asian fans, bamboo shoots, and a vibrant silk tablecloth. The food was cooked right in front of us by a friendly chef, and featured an array of exotic food representing the Asian theme. The table settings were equally impressive and flaunted the talents of various local vendors. The table settings ranged from simple to extravagant.
This particular table setting was a tasteful example of a simple, earthy theme, complete with a rusted lantern and worn picture frame.

In honor of Fiesta currently going on in Santa Barbara, we are sharing this Hacienda Themed party we produced for UCSB’s Board of Regents. This thirty-five year old Old Spanish Days celebration is a reminder of the Mexican spirit of the town and preservation of the heritage.
I was tickled pink to have been hired to produce this event, because I was born in Mexico City, and celebrated first-hand the folklore of the culture. One philosophy I carry with producing my events, is incorporating the five senses in order to enhance the guest experience.
From the sights and beauty of decor:
(sombreros and daisy’s floating in the pool)
(the view of the Santa Ynez Mountains and Hacienda style home – featured on Architectural Digest – location helped)
The sound of an incredibly talented all female Mariachi band – Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles
The smell and taste of authentic Mexican Food by Cowboy Flavor which we showcased in a mercado-style custom built buffet.
Down to flan for dessert and a coffee station incorporating the colors and textiles of Mexican ceramics from Classic Party Rentals
Indisputably perfect ingredients for another Felici Event!

It’s easy to see beauty and take it at face value; but not everyone can see that high quality doesn’t have to come with a high price.
How is La Tavola able to beat the prices of several competing linen rental companies? Well, for starters, everything is done in-house – from the sewing to the washing to assembling of swatches. They actually have a 60,000 square foot warehouse that essentially functions as a magical little village creating fabulous linens. On top of that, the owners have a true passion for incredible fabric and they wanted to share the beauty with as many people as possible by making La Tavola’s linens as affordable as they could.
So, when you see something in the collection that strikes your fancy, let your imagination run wild, especially when you’re designing your event.
Happy linen shopping!
