4. Aloft Boston Seaport

With more than 10,000 square feet of meeting space, the new Aloft Boston Seaport hotel will open in February and is accepting bookings for meetings and events right now! The largest of its 10 event spaces, the Mann Ballroom, is a 4,900-square-foot room that holds 500 guests for a reception or theatre-style seating or 320 banquet-style. Smaller rooms like Tactic 1, 2, and 3 each hold 35 guests. The 330-room hotel will offer on-site catering, free Wi-Fi, and proximity to the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. For all those meeting and event planners out there, notice the free Wi-Fi! We can already tell this hotel will be a hit!

Helping to save the planet--Element Boston Seaport, part of Starwood’s eco-friendly brand, expects to be the city’s first LEED-certified hotel after it opens in January.

Set to take over the 100 Pier 4 space in November is the steak and seafood restaurant Ocean Prime from Cameron Mitchell Restaurants. We love the play on surf-and-turf within the restaurant's name. The 10,500-square-foot restaurant will seat 272 diners and have three private dining rooms available for events: the 12-seat Cambridge Room, the 14-seat Seaport Room, and the larger Back Bay Room, which will accommodate 48.

The small, neighborhood restaurant will serve local New England seafood in a cozy Back Bay brownstone on Gloucester Street that offers about 30 seats. If you love oysters as much as we do, you will need to try this place out. Word hasn't gotten out yet about whether or not you can reserve the entire restaurant for a private event but we have a feeling that will be possible. Keep an eye out for their grand opening!

Wedding Wednesdays: Head Over Heels

Big thank you to my hockey-loving boyfriend who sent this amazing video to me. I've been waiting since last week to share it! NHL fans might recognize this name, former Blues forward now playing for the Capitals, TJ Oshie married his now wife Lauren, in July of this year. However, their wedding video was just released and it is the most beautiful thing we've ever seen. But really--see for yourselves!

Produced by Capture Studios, you see the first look, TJ walking his daughter Lyla down the aisle, and a touching speech from Lauren’s father during the reception. The ceremony took place in a beautiful church with a number of bridesmaids and groomsmen by their sides. As evident in the video, the bride wore a fitted lace wedding dress with a plunging neckline. Her hair was pulled into a sleek bun on the top of her head. Absolutely stunning! The reception took place at the Radison Blu Mall of America in Minnesota. A perfect hometown venue for these two Minnesota-natives. Their love for one another is captured beautifully in this amazing video that has us absolutely head over heels!

Now let's give credit where it's due. Shout out to the company that made us sob--Capture Studios, a production company based in Minneapolis, MN. They have been fortunate enough to shoot weddings and events all over the globe as well as a good serving of commercial work for brands like Harley-Davidson, US Bank, The Minnesota Twins, United Health Care, Pearl Izumi and HealthPartners. Clearly they know how to pull at our heartstrings! We love that they love to be a part of couple's big days and can portray that in their finished product. Check out the Capture Studios site to learn more about them!

Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Oshie! Cheers to many years of health and happiness. Thank you for inspiring us to keep devouring the details!

Boston's Best: Where to Celebrate Halloween This Weekend

If you're taking on the dark-side and venturing out this weekend, we've got some recommendations for you. Boston is always hopping for Halloween. Ghost, goblins, vampires and villains, oh my! These bars, clubs, boats and crawls are the best of the best to celebrate a spooktacular Halloween! Here's where to go.

Bars & Clubs

Brass Union - Heroes and Villains Party

A typical theme, yes, but did we mention no cover? Yes, you heard that right, no cover! Brass Union is bringing in DJ ABD, there are cash prizes for three different “best costume awards,” and there’s lots of candy. Get the Batmobile and head over to Union Square for this bumpin' party!

District Hall - Halloween Ball at the Hall by RadioBDC

This free event will be at District Hall taking over two rooms, one with live music from Never in Vegas and the other with a DJ, and a $500 cash prize for best costume. It's a pretty classy joint, so make sure you get all dolled up!


The Spirit of Boston - Titanic Masquerade

We hope this ship doesn't sink! Kidding, of course. This cruise is better than most in that it starts and ends at appropriate times: it leaves the dock at 10 p.m. and gets back at 1 a.m. You’re required to wear a costume on board–as in they won’t let you on without one–and they “strongly encourage” a mask. General Admission is $65 until the 31st or until they sell out. Never let go Jack!

The Provincetown II - Haunted Ghost Ship

The Provincetown II has hired a live DJ and will have a cash bar for Halloween. Costumes aren’t required. This particular cruise embarks at 7:30 and gets back at 10:30, well before the night is over. Which could work to your advantage if you want to do a booze cruise to pre-game and then hit up bars and clubs after you’ve arrived back in the harbor to wrap up the night. Tickets are $30 until Halloween or until they sell out. Don't miss this monster bash!

Pub Crawl

Friends of the Fort Point Channel - Halloween on the Harbor


Halloween on the Harbor is definitely an upscale crawl. It’s made up of mostly hotels and fancy bars, which means more expensive drinks (which are being offered at reduced prices), but fewer college students, if that’s a thing that bothers you. Other benefits include discounted tickets to a 10:30 show at Laugh Boston (the crawl only lasts from 7-10), access to promotionally-priced foods, and prizes for best costume. You also get to take a duck boat from venue to venue, which is a clever alternative to walking or ubering. Tickets are $5 and all proceeds go to Friends of the Fort Point Channel. Try this crawl out!

For more information, check out Now all you need to do is devour the details of an awesome costume! Have a safe and happy Halloween!

Monday Mashups: Putting A Spin on Breast Cancer Awareness

In a month of Breast Cancer Awareness celebrations, it's important to draw attention in a unique way to the cause. And on a day of mashups, we've found four businesses doing just that. They've taken their brand and put a spin on it to showcase those effected by breast cancer. Get inspired by these excellent ideas!

Guests staying at the Courtyard New York Manhattan/Midtown East have the option of booking a pink-theme suite, with the hotel donating $100 per stay to the breast cancer non-profit Komen Greater NYC. The suites are adorned with pink pillows and linens, and guests receive a swag bag with Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure T-shirts, armbands, and a pin, along with a donation card for additional contributions. Guests also may select two promotional items from Susan G. Komen that are mailed to them after their stay. An honorable way to take a mini-vacay. We love this idea!

Peninsula New York

Artist Grimanesa Amorós has adorned the façade of the Peninsula New York with an LED pink lotus light sculpture. Circa 1881 curated the installation, which is part of the Peninsula in Pink initiative in which all the Peninsula Hotels in Asia, North America, and Europe engage in efforts to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The event launched in 2010 and this year had an artistic theme, “the Art of Pink”. To top it off, a portion of sales of spa treatments, Pink Afternoon Tea, and cocktails are donated to the breast and ovarian cancer support organization Share. A little goes a long way!

Models wear designer-made wedding gowns fashioned from Cashmere Bathroom Tissue at the annual White Cashmere Collection Fashion Show in Toronto. The 12th annual event, held September 29 at the Carlu, drew 250 guests including Toronto Mayor John Tory. The public is invited to vote on their favorite couture creations, with $1 per vote up to $10,000 donated to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Voting continues through November 3. This partnership is one we love to see. When corporations are raising awareness, the message is received a bit louder.

Eat to the Beat Fundraiser

Breast cancer survivors who attend the Eat to the Beat fundraiser in Toronto are encouraged to create food-inspired corsets to wear to the event. We would love to participate in this Katy Perry-esque event! The culinary fundraiser, which benefits Willow Breast & Hereditary Cancer Support, features a lineup of 60 female chefs. This year’s edition will take place at Roy Thomson Hall on October 27. You go ladies!

Get behind a cause and find a way to mashup ideas to create something as beautiful as these initiatives. We absolutely love seeing the way these businesses devour the details! Together we can make a difference.

Wedding Wednesdays: Sister Sister

Happy Wedding Wednesday! This is one of my favorite stories thus far. A family with five sisters did something super creative for their parents to thank them for funding each of their weddings. Let's just say, it's picture perfect. Read their story and get inspired!

These awesome née Walitsch sisters did a surprise photo shoot of all of them in their wedding dresses for their parents as a token of their appreciation.

That's why sisters Lindsay, Becky, Kelly, Cassie, and Jamie, all née Walitsch, decided to thank their parents for their support with a surprise photo shoot of all of them in their dresses.

Cassie (second from left), suggested the idea to her wedding photographer, Rachel Blackwell. Blackwell was also the photographer for Jamie (second from right) when she got married last June. Blackwell knew the shoot had to happen immediately, because the odds of none of the five sisters being pregnant at the same time were pretty low.

On the day of the shoot last July outside San Jose, California, they got their hair done together in the morning and made sure to wear their wedding-day shoes.

On the day of the shoot last July outside San Jose, California, they got their hair done together in the morning and made sure to wear their wedding-day shoes. They all helped zip each other up and were reminiscing about their own wedding days. They also toted along framed photos from their wedding day to incorporate into this thank you shoot.

They also toted along framed photos from their wedding days.

What a beautiful way to say thank you! Not to mention, what a great way to spend time with your sisters. We love this group of ladies and their creativity. Their parents loved the photos and fun fact, four of the five of them did get pregnant in the months right after the shoot! So congratulations to the former Walitsch clan!

Blackwell's favorite photo of the bunch? This one:

We hope their story has you inspired to devour the details! Share your stories like this with us in the comments section--we would love to hear from you!

The Birthday Party Project

There is nothing more motivating than reading a story like this in the morning. I've never been more appreciative than in this very moment thanks to event planner Paige Chenault. As you can imagine, children in homeless shelters across the country often go without a birthday celebration or even a birthday gift year after year. Having a tremendous impact on their self-esteem, though it may not be recognizable. Well, Paige is out to change that with the help of her organization The Birthday Party Project.!the-project/c21kz

Founded in 2012, The Birthday Party Project is bringing joy to homeless children one birthday bash at a time. The idea for the non-profit organization came to Paige years ago when she was reading an article about birthday parties for kids. As an event planner by trade, a pregnant Paige began to get excited about getting the chance to throw parties for her own child. But after seeing a photo on the news of a malnourished child in Haiti, she began to reconsider. She was then motivated to volunteer at shelters in her community and then started to get more involved by planning these parties!

The Birthday Party Project started with the goal of celebrating the birthday of every homeless child in Texas. Four years after its inception, the organization has expanded to eight different cities across the United States including Kansas City, Minneapolis, San Francisco, Chicago and New York City. Each month, the organization's volunteers, also known as "birthday enthusiasts," head to numerous homeless and transitional facilities across the country to celebrate the children's birthdays that fall in that particular month.

In 2015, the organization will host 180 parties. Each one is complete with decorations, games, music, entertainment and, of course, birthday cake. Every child whose birthday falls within the month receives their own party hat, badge, an individual-sized birthday cake and a wrapped present worth approximately $30.

Every month has a different theme to keep the kids entertained. September was "County Fair," where each agency had either a petting zoo or magician on site, and this October is a Halloween-themed "Monster Mash" theme. The parties range anywhere from $400-$1000 depending on the number of children celebrating that month. The project is made possible through countless volunteers and generous donations.

Within the moments of chaos these children may live in, it's important to remember to celebrate then. Each child should know how much they matter. People, like Paige, are out there cheering for them. Don't hesitate to get involved with an organization like this! Devour the details and volunteer for The Birthday Party Project in your area!

Monday Mashups: Venue Architecture and Event Decor

When deciding on a venue, take a look at the architecture you have available to you. Sometimes you can take the design and structure of a space and incorporate it into your event décor. This is a cost effective way to make your social or corporate gathering even more beautiful. Check out these four ideas for inspiration!

Tabletop Centerpieces

These amazing laser-cut paper foldouts as tabletop centerpieces were meant to represent the architecture of Grand Avenue and surrounding buildings in downtown Los Angeles, including Disney Hall and the new Broad. LED lights illuminated the representations of the buildings so they appeared to glow from within. You can do this based on any cityscape. It definitely adds a touch of sophistication and art.

Square Step-and-Repeats

The Residence of the German Ambassador is a modernist space decorated with variations on the square form. The building itself served as the design inspiration for this year’s Opera Ball, a benefit for the Washington National Opera, in June. Perfect for PR, the architectural inspiration at the Residence in Washington translated in two custom structures at the entrance, which included logos that allowed them to double as step-and-repeats as well as a welcoming entryway. We love this idea!

Glowing Orbs

Inside the Broad museum opening party, glowing orbs illuminated the space and provided décor. The monochromatic orbs nodded subtly to the all-white exterior of the venue. We love the use of this space with this design because it really draws your eye to the venue from left to right. Plus it is just simply beautiful.

Mirrored Tabletops

Beantown Throwdown

Appropriately dubbed for what might happen this weekend at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston. lululemon, the ubiquitous yoga and activewear brand, will be hosting their first ever Boston warehouse sale from Friday, October 16th to Sunday, October 18th. And if it's anything like the Lilly Pulitizer at Target event, we are sure it's going to be nuts. lululemon will have both men's and women's workout clothes in all sizes, as well as accessories and outerwear, available at discounted prices. You will need to line-up outside early. And we mean early!

Those yoga pants won't last long among us rough-n-tough, yoga loving, semi-basic Bostonians!

Or just buy. I mean really, you can always sell it on Amazon.

(If you're ever on Newbury St. in Boston, visit the lululemon store with my best friend in the window. She works there and is also an amazing yoga instructor!)

So clear you calendar this weekend and devour the details of the lululemon Beantown Throwdown!

Wedding Wednesday: Happy 2nd Bloggiversary to Devour the Details!

We did it readers... Devour the Details is officially 2 today! Thank you for all the love and support. We are excited to see what year three has in store for us and look forward to writing many more creative posts to keep you all inspired!

Today also couldn't be more perfect since it is my favorite day of the week. That's right, happy wedding Wednesday! On this wonderful bloggiversary we're bringing you six sensational never-before-seen ideas for your wedding day. Alright, let's get inspired!

1. A Vintage Bridal Suite

Getting married in an obscure location? Or does your ceremony venue not have space to get ready? Check out these awesome airstream trailers for rent. They have a vintage feel, that works wonders especially for photos, if you're choosing that style for your wedding.

2. Marching Band Wedding Processional

Marching band wedding processional

If you're the type of bride that wants to make everyone know that you just got hitched, this is the way to do it! If your ceremony space is close enough to the reception venue, lead everyone to the party with the help of a local marching band! It's like a mini parade in honor of your nuptials. Add in fun props or a song everyone can sing to draw even more attention.

3. Custom Wedding Cake Display

Grand white wedding cake with custom floral designs

This is where you can get a little out-of-the-box. Have your cake designer and florist work together on the ultimate display for your big day. This custom wedding cake literally looks like an extreme floral arrangement and we love it. Go big or go home!

4. Video Tables

Wedding reception lounge area with video tables

Um, how cool are these? If you have your ceremony recorded, put it on display during the reception! Everyone can oohh and awww over any sweet moments they may have missed. It also provides an icebreaker for guests who are less familiar with each other. Plus you'll get to enjoy the special moment as well!

5. Floating Dance Floor

Wedding reception venue with floating dance floor

If your reception venue is an open-air space or clear tent, a floating dance floor will create a truly magnificent scene. Not only does it offer the added bonus of a better-lit dance area, but it also makes the entire space look bigger. We highly recommend this detail! I'm sure you'll already feel like your on cloud 9, why not make it look like you're actually floating?

6. Cereal Bar

Cereal and granola buffet at wedding reception

Since we all enjoy a late night snack, if your reception carries on into the wee hours of the morning, we suggest having a cereal bar! Trust us, it will be a much-appreciated detail. Cereal or granola fixings can sit out for hours without needing any attention or upkeep (aside from the milk, that is), and compared to the more typical sweets buffet, cereal is a more affordable option with plenty of varieties to choose from.

We hope we've gotten your creative juices flowing with these six sensational never-before-seen ideas for your wedding day. Now go on and keep devouring the details!

Copperdome Crust: Mobile Pizzeria

At the Topsfield Fair last night, I was totally impressed with this one caterer in particular. I was craving some good pizza, an odd thing to want at the Topsfield Fair, but when I stumbled upon Copperdome Crust, I knew it was meant to be. I mean come on, they were literally tossing the pizza dough in their tent. I approached to see what was up and realized they are a mobile catering pizza company with a copper oven on a trailer that they bring and use to cook these pies to perfection!!gallery/c1t44

This is the type of catering you want at your next event. Their unique copper dome oven sits on a trailer that's reminiscent of a horse drawn carriage. It's equipped with a hand washing sink with warm and cold water, as well as a waste water tank. It houses storage compartments to carry plenty of aged hardwood, the pizza tools, and detachable chimney. The oven comfortably holds 4-5 medium pizzas at once in addition to the cooking fire. Last night, they were selling a quarter of their cheese pizzas slices for $5 each. I couldn't resist.!gallery/c1t44

The oven is entirely wood fueled and is preheated to approximately 750 degrees before an event. Once their prep and cooking stations are set up, you can watch their chefs create an assortment of delicious wood fired pies! With wood as its only fuel, the ovens efficiency at reaching and maintaining temperatures over 800 degrees is quick and consistent--a pizza will cook perfectly in only two minutes. And we mean perfectly! Their staff was super friendly and accommodating. The woman who served me even cut my quarter slice in half so it was easier to eat.!gallery/c1t44

Copperdome Crust offers a variety of catering packages and have great menu items to choose from. They use the finest imported and locally sourced ingredients to make their pizza including plum tomatoes, whole milk shredded mozzarella, aged Romano and quality extra virgin olive oil. They cook the pizza just enough so it develops a crisp rustic crust while staying light and airy on the inside. They truly do bring the pizzeria to you! Check out Copperdome Crust today and book them for your next event! We promise you'll want to devour the details of their perfect pies every day!
