 Happy Clients

“I had the opportunity to work with Sensational Events to help coordinate a large industry party/event in Phoenix for an Ad Tech company, Altitude Digital. The vision for the event was quite unique in concept, so it was in our best interest to hire a local event company to fulfill our specific needs. When we first inquired about their business specialties and availability, Amy P. was responsive, thorough and helpful, which are always great elements to building a quick business relationship.

Amy P. showed enthusiasm throughout our planning stage, and delivered on meeting our needs and expectations. In fact, she went above and beyond with many of the deliverables, including introducing us to other great vendors that we plan to use again. I was especially impressed with her emphasis to detail and willingness to tackle and take on more projects as our event approached. Amy truly puts her heart and soul into every Sensational Events relationship. We’re very grateful for her dedication, expertise and highly recommend her to anyone!”

Basketball Inspired Scottsdale Bar Mitzvah @ Monterra at Westworld

Sensational Events is pleased to showcase this basketball inspired Scottsdale Bar Mitzvah. Coincidentally, the client’s son selected his favorite colors of navy and lime green, the official colors of his football team, the Seattle Seahawks and the reigning Super Bowl champions. Thanks to the many wonderful vendors who helped to create lasting memories for my client.

DÉCOR & LINENS
Creative Occasions – created an engaging and elegant look for this basketball themed Bar Mitzvah. The entrance made a wow statement with a lime green carpet with LED glow balls. Inside Monterra LED high boys and a water light feature attracted the adults to the bar. The ballroom was gorgeous in navy pintuck linen and a pop of lime green lamour napkins – the perfect combination for elegance and fun! It wouldn’t be a basketball theme without personalized jerseys.

FLORAL/CENTERPIECES
Jan Dekker Designs – the floral and centerpieces make this event room pop with color. The adult tables blended the elegance of a trio of submerged orchids and candles and on the kids table lime had a fun big fish bowl of green water gels and bowls of green and blue candy.

EVENT DETAILS
The Event Essentials – Kim McDowell is a true professional when it comes to bringing all the details together and keep the branding as one. From the menu cards to place cards she tied it all together.

CUISINE
M Culinary Concepts and Chef Michael DeMaria created a masterpiece with this Asian inspired menu.  From a fusion stacked salad with peking duck to a stunning second course duet of roasted steak morimoto with baby bok choy and ahi tuna atop mirin shushi rice to a trio of delicious desserts. When it comes to service, presentation and quality – M Culinary Concepts is by far the leader!

VENUE
Monterra at Westworld – recently taken over by M Culinary Concepts who is now in charge of the rental and the catering. Looking forward to seeing what they have in store for the property though we are very pleased they are in charge now.

PHOTOGRAPHY
Life Moments Photography – Peter and Alissa Cohen were amazing to work with! So professional and produced gorgeous photographs. Looking forward to working with them more in the future!

ENTERTAINMENT
DJ Timbo – Crazy and fun is how you would describe DJ Timbo. Love this guy!

I feel…”it’s when we show up for the happy, celebratory occasions that make lasting memories.”

CONCEPT

Club Amanda

ENTERTAINMENT

DJ Timbo is one of my favorite DJ’s!  He’s not only a DJ, he’s the entertainment energy bunny.

STYLE

Hot pink glitter dots add the necessary sparkle to top all the guest tables. Adult tables showcased an elegant touch with a platinum lamour bottom linen. Teen tables had a pop of purple color to match the scattered pink and purple candies. Linens by Southwick Linens.

DÉCOR

To create a more private and intimate feel, white drape was added along with beautiful pink satin tie-backs. The walls were washed with a warm pink-purple glow which helps create great ambiance and stellar pictures. The tables glowed with many floating candles in clear glass cylinders which sat on top of pink gel beads. The attention to detail is what brings me back to hiring Corinne Carr, owner of Creative Occasions, event after event.

Profile in Sports Event Planning: AZ Urban Race Dominates!

Innovative Ideas Made First-Ever Race a Great Success

Mountainside Fitness had a HUGE 2011 – they celebrated their 20th Anniversary in May and brought a new and exciting twist to a race/obstacle course – AZ Urban Race in early November. Sensational Events is proud to have been the event producer on both events for this growing, Arizona-based fitness company.

On Saturday, November 5th Mountainside Fitness was the presenting sponsor at the AZ Urban Race, a 3-mile, 10-obstacle challenge course at Salt River Fields (SRF) to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Arizona. This first year event was tremendously successful with more than 2,500 adult participants and 460 Phoenix Children’s Hospital – Kohl’s Kids Rock Stars taking part in the Kids Urban Race.

An event like this just doesn’t happen – it takes the right team and a serious amount of detail planning to make it successful. Working directly with the Race Director, Mario Arce, we gathered the best in the business to make the race team including Race Place Events and Zazoosh Event Photography. Mario was a former competitive runner and he new the in’s and out’s of how a race should function so the logistics of the race itself was fairly uncomplicated to him. The set up for the festival at the registration/finish line was a piece of cake for me since dealing with registration, sponsors, vendors, bands, food concessionaires, etc are all a part of my world. From the website to the race day program, every detail was carefully crafted. Even the precautions that were taken during a windy and raining set up were a part of our “what if” scenarios.

Now that we’ve got the details covered but what about the budget. A race like this costs money to produce, but most importantly, the purpose of this event was to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation of AZ, so a plan had to be put in place from the start to capture funds. Based on my experience with coordinating charity events I designed the AZ Urban Race sponsorship program that outlined the sponsorship levels and their benefits. This marketing piece is the key ingredient to any fund-raising event and helped the race sales team land major sponsors such as the Arizona Diamondbacks, Blue Media, Phoenix Children’s Hospital and Clif Bar. The current relationships that Mountainside Fitness has with these companies played a major role in their trust of this event and eventually their participation in the race. It was also very important to invite the Salt River Pima Indian Tribal Council (since it was on their land) and the Mayor of Scottsdale, Mayor Lane, to join in the festivities because of its impact on Scottsdale.

All in all it was a great day and the participants loved the course, had a chance to visit all the sponsors and vendors at the festival, listen to the great music of The Chadwick’s and go home feeling rewarded.
