Cuatro de Mayo

Premiere Events loves parties, I mean, who doesn’t? One of our favorite parties is our annual Cinco de Mayo party, held on May 4th this year, hence “Cuatro de Mayo.” Every year we hold this party at our north location off of Research Blvd. This year we had the pleasure of collaborating with Contigo Catering, Frost 321, Kurant Events, Lisa Hause Photography, Pink Avocado and Word of Mouth Bakery.

Guests were greeted by a tent in the parking lot with brightly colored cocktail tables and a bar. Upon getting a margarita, guests were greeted at the door with a menu of what each caterer had to offer, either sweet and/or savory.

Contigo Catering offered a chorizo deviled egg, a green chile pork slider and a mezcal compressed heirloom melon.

Frost 321 (a fan favorite) offered your choice between a strawberry margarita sorbet or a mango margarita sorbet. We will admit, we had to try both of them, just to be thorough.

Kurant Events offered a shrimp and watermelon ceviche with crispy plantain ribbons and taro root chips, and a quatro leches cupcake with a banana liquer meringue.

Pink Avocado offered a guacamole and queso bar with your choice of traditional, mango or roasted corn guacamole, queso blanco, roasted chili salsa, fresno dona, pico de galla, corn tortilla chips, and house totopos.

Word of Mouth Bakery offered a key lime pie fruit parfait and festive cookies for a takeaway.

Guitar by Luis set the mood for the showroom with beautiful sounds from the string guitarist. Papel picado adorned the ceiling of the showroom and the tent to bring the Cinco de Mayo festivities alive. Cocktail tables were set throughout the showroom with brightly colored bengaline linens and serapas to continue with the theme.

Once guests were ready to make their way home they took a gift bag filled with a Premiere Events shot glass, a mini shooter of tequila and a donkey cookie from Word of Mouth Bakery.

Bobcat Bonanza 2017

It’s a tough job… but someone must do it! Attending some of our community’s most amazing events is both a pleasure and a privilege. We’re so grateful to be part of a company that supports not-for-profit groups and organizations, including (just to name a few of the many) Children’s Causes (RMHC Charities of Central Texas, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Austin Children’s Services, Center for Child Protection, the Settlement Home, Dell Children’s), Industry Organizations (ILEA, NACE, Austin Food and Wine Foundation, Wedding Network) The Arts (Paramount Theatre, the Blanton, Ballet Austin) and Education (including, most notably, Texas State University Athletics, The University of Texas, and St. Edwards University.)

In exchange for our sponsorships and support, members of the Premiere team have the opportunity to attend these events ranging from refined black-tie galas (like the annual Paramount Gala held on Congress Avenue ) to cowboy/cowgirl chic affairs (Bandana Ball) to signature events, including Austin Food and Wine Foundation’s Wine and Swine, Live Fire and Official Drink of Austin.

The weekend of April 29th offered so many opportunities, the Premiere team was all over Austin and the surrounding areas attending these wonderful events. The Georgetown CVC hosted Red Poppy Fest, an annual event held on one of the top 10 City Squares in the US. The National Domestic Abuse Hotline hosted a fundraiser at one of our favorite venues, Brazos Hall.

Premiere Events Dripping Springs was also a contributor to the Pound House Heritage Gala.

Perhaps the highlight of this past weekend was the annual Gala on the Gridiron, benefiting Texas State Athletics. This event, held on the newly renovated and recently expanded Jim Wacker field, raised money to fund scholarships for deserving Texas State athletes participating in men’s and women’s sports. Premiere provided an 82 x 131 structure tent which sheltered the 600 guests from the wind, rain and threatening weather. Premiere also provided tables, chairs, linens, staging and full catering support… everything needed to transform a football field into an impressive and unique event venue.

A bountiful buffet and generous bar service opened the evening. After enjoying plenty to eat…. and all you wanted to drink, we were treated to a rousing performance by Recycled Percussion, who finished third in the 2011 season of American’s Got Talent. They showed the crowd why their interactive brand of “junk rock” continues to draw impressive crowds. This year’s Bobcat Bonanza was a stunning success in every context, and an all-around great evening for all of us in attendance.

Thanks to the dedicated Premiere field-staff team for their diligence, commitment and astounding capabilities. Thanks to the Event Consulting staff for their role in translating our event-holders visions into impressive, successful realities. Thanks to our clients and customers for giving us the opportunity to be a part of their meaningful work in such enjoyable ways. Check out some photos by Jerry Hayes Photography from Bobcat Bonanza 2017!

Vintage Villas Open House

We had the pleasure of supporting and attending the Vintage Villas open house this past weekend, revealing their newly renovated space.
If you weren’t aware, Vintage Villas is a gorgeous hotel and wedding venue nestled in the Hudson Bend area of Lakeway that has recently renovated its hall space to accommodate larger wedding parties. With a breathtaking view of Lake Travis as your background, the altar space is one that makes for incredible photo opportunities and quite the stunning view for your guests as they watch you tie the big knot. If you’re looking for a gorgeous venue with indoor and outdoor space and a beautiful Texas Hill Country view, you’ll definitely want to check out the new Vintage Villas event space!
Check out some of the pictures we snapped from the beautiful afternoon!

Trend Watch: Weddings with Fido

Do you have a four legged furry friend that you want to include in your big day? You’re not alone. We are animal lovers at Premiere Events and we absolutely love seeing pictures of people including their animals on such a special day.

There are a ton of ways that you can make your fur baby feel just as special as you at your wedding. Here are a few that we’ve come up with to give you some inspiration:

  1. Flower Girl/ Ring Bearer: Dress your furry friend in a cute little outfit with the rings attached to their back or give them a flower crown.
  2. Bridesmaid/ Groomsmen: Chances are your furry friend is already one of your best friends, so why not have him as part of the gang?

  3. Best Fur Man/ Fur maid of honor: Do you love your fur baby so much you couldn’t imagine a better person next to you on your big day? Give Fido the highest of honor of being your fur man or maid of honor!

  4. Adoptable cats/dogs instead of bouquets: We have seen a trend among animal lovers toward ditching the traditional bouquets altogether and instead, walking the aisle with an adoptable fur baby. How cute is that!?

  5. Ride out into the sunset: In need of a grand exit? Why not use your beloved animal as your ride out into the sunset?

Regardless of what your “fur” baby is (dog, cat, bird, lizard) if you want to include them in your big day, there are countless ways to do so! Just be sure to keep any lifted legs away from the white dress….

Questions to Answer Before You Visit Premiere Events

decor (2)

Events of all kinds have so many moving pieces, and rentals can be a major part of that! Our event consultants are happy to help you figure out the items you need for your event, but there are some questions that only you might know the answer to based on what you’re envisioning and what the rest of your vendor team is doing for the day of.

Here are some frequently asked questions that your event consultant might need answers to, as well as things to consider when planning your rental needs!

GENERAL:

  1. Have you already reached out to get a quote? If so, please bring your quote number or the name that is on the quote that’s already in the system.
  2. What is your anticipated guest count? This helps us determine how many of each item you might need. We recommend starting at the highest expected number and reducing your quote or order as you go, so that way you aren’t surprised by your final order total if your guest count goes up!
  3. What is your estimated budget for rentals? When you know how much you have to spend, we can help you decide where to spend your money, what to upgrade, and which items to select.
  4. If a reception, are you doing a seated style or a cocktail style reception? This will determine what style, size, and quantity of tables and chairs you need.

LOCATION:

    1. Where is your event taking place? Private personal property, public lands, business, or event venue.
    2. If at an event venue, does your venue provide any rental items? Many provide certain sizes and quantities of folding tables and chairs, but some even provide linens, decor and furniture pieces and most will list this information on their website or on your rental contract. This will help your consultant determine if you need additional items and what sizes and quantities of linens and items you may need for what they provide.
    3. How much space do you have to work with and how are you thinking about arranging your layout in the space? Don’t forget to leave space for your food stations, bars and beverage stations, DJ or Band, Gift or Sign In Tables, etc.) list of commonly needed items: favors, registration, marketing materials, cake, programs, etc)
    4. Does your venue have trash cans? 
    5. Is any part of your event taking place outdoors? If yes, and your venue does not provide a rain plan option, you may need to rent a tent as your backup. To do so, we will need to know the following information:
        1. Can we stake the tent into the ground, or is the tent going on asphalt or concrete?
        2. If we cannot stake, we will need to use water barrels to weigh down the tent. Is there water access close to the tent site so we can fill the water barrels
        3. How much space do you have available for tenting?
        4. Do you need the tent to have side walls?
        5. Will you need lighting to be installed in your tent? If so, is there power access nearby to plug into?
        6. Will you need any heating or cooling equipment for the tent based on the weather?

  1. Are you hoping to have your items delivered or are you wanting to pick up and return your items yourself? There are a few of our rental items that are delivery only, however we do have a minimum order subtotal in order to qualify for delivery, based on where your event is located. If your order does not meeting our order minimum, we can recommend a courier service to delivery for you.
  2. If you’d like to do a customer pick up, which location would you like to pick up and return at? We have three locations for pickup and return; Premiere South, Premiere North or Premiere Dripping Springs. We generally do not allow orders of more than 50 chairs or 20 tables to be picked up at locations other than Premiere South. Don’t forget to measure your vehicle to make sure that all of your rentals will fit safely!

Our standard delivery window is Monday-Friday 9am-5pm (or 9am-12pm and 1pm-5pm), and Saturdays 9am-2pm. Any deliveries or pickups scheduled outside of those delivery windows or that need to be at a specific time rather than window will have additional delivery fees.
