Beach Picnic: Done Right!

July 22, 2010

Summer is almost over, so time to pull out the wicker baskets one more time and head to the beach.  But before you start laying out the blanket and firing up the grill here are a few tips to update your everyday beach picnic.

Picnics always seem like a great idea, until you start eating.  Where do I put my plate or drink?  Put the enjoyment back into your picnic experience by using a modern breakfast tray.  The tray offers a great surface space to eat while down at the beach. Check it out on CB2.

While you probably already bring a cooler of ice for your perishable items, an umbrella can also be helpful by keeping these items out of direct sunlight.  Try one with a netted curtain, which will transition into the night, protecting those picnicking from bugs. Here’s a great option @Ikea.

Lastly, if you are planning on having your picnic later at night or just not sure how long you will be at the beach, be sure to bring some lighting.  A great alternative to the typical tiki torch is a solar powered light.  Not only do they add a modern touch, but also conveniently charge all day and turn on right as the sun comes down.

We hope these tips add some functional flare to your next beach picnic and end your summer just right!

Erin Fetherston Inspired Dessert

July 21, 2010

The Inspiration behind the Inspired

Erin Fetherston‘s Fall 2010 line opens doors to many different themes for intimate events, especially a wedding.  The soft, dreamy  colors of her collection can inspire a ‘whimsical garden wedding with vintage touches’. 

Amongst other inspired pieces, the gown, the invite, the centerpiece and nail polish, Shiraz Events created a dessert, sure to please your guests.


Smoothly layered fresh blackberry mousse and softly whipped cream in a fluted, classic glass. Top it with a delicate garnish like shimmering spun sugar and gold leaf. Photographs and tastes as light and airy as it looks!

Shiraz’s Favorite Things 1

July 13, 2010

Centerpiece Alternative

While flowers are always a great option to complete any dining table, lamps are a functional and stylish alternative. Reflecting his modern and clean style, these next lamp options are two of Shai Tertner’s favorties.

The lighthouse hurricane lamps are available in both short and tall sizes as a substitue to votive candles.

The glow oil burning lamp is another option to add a modern lamp to your dining table. Its hour glass shape will add a unique structure to your look. Made in Finland by iittala, this gorgeous 4×6-inch oil burning lamp called Glow, is the perfect accessory for the sophisticated home.

Both lamps are available in white, which matched most color schemes, making them the perfect buy for the everyday hostess.

Scientific Food Trends for the Summer!

June 7, 2010

Shiraz Events’ worldly inspired palate is one for ever-changing food trend ideas. When asked about ideas for a “Trends in Canapes” inspired story for Southern Hospitality, Shai and Yaniv suggested the following ideas which Shiraz Events  catering spices up for clients.

1. Gourmet Fusion Empanadas: The Latin community in Miami is so strong, so we’ve taken a basic concept of the empanada and created gourmet fusion empanadas. For example, filling them with fois gras and date compote. 

2. Lollipops: Local guests love their lollipop so we aim to please and serve salmon and goat cheese lollipops; as well as frozen red grape with pistachio and blue cheese. 

3. Cold Soup Bar: Watermelon gazpacho, chilled apple-ginger-carrot, chilled sweet pea and mint in demi cups- no cream, sounding mouth watering yet? Guests at the MOCA Gala found it irresistible. 

4. Molecular Gastronomy: We created caviar looking drops of flavor using molecular gastronomy. Lately, we’ve been serving a small bite size dessert with chocolate cups filled with grape mousse and pomegranate “caviar”. 

5. Food for Thought: We like keeping things fresh and lean, so grilled hors d’oeuvres are very popular. For example: grilled lime rubbed shrimp or aged beef bites.

Make sure to keep checking in for more food trend ideas! We always share on our Facebook too!

Shai Tertner and Super Bowl 2014!

June 3, 2010

BizBash asked Shai: With the recent announcement of Super Bowl 2014 being playing in the NYC/NJ area, how will planners capture the years of warm weather bliss in Miami, here in NYC’s cold winter months?

Being involved with many Super Bowl events in Miami and experiencing day time and night time activities throughout those times, I can tell that the challenge for planners in New York will be to capture the light state of mind that a warm environment and latin influence  lends to the crowds. I think it is time to spice things up in New York and bring back the playfulness that we are lacking since the collapse of the twin towers. Some ways of doing so: themes, costumes, smart but fun stimulation, expect the unexpected. READ MORE>>
