Welcome to BB Events

We've confirmed a new passion. Since planning our own weddings, our interest in event planning has blossomed more than we imagined. We've always loved party planning - from holiday parties & bar-b-ques to birthdays, baby showers & reunions - pretty much any special occasion that involves bringing family & friends together and celebrating. Researching all the gorgeous party details (especially weddings) and brainstorming creative, budget-friendly ways to express the joys and emotions of each celebration is a confirmed passion of ours! Check out some of the brilliantly beautiful ways to celebrate in our blog. Feel free to comment & give us feedback!

Thanks for looking! And please contact us if you need ideas for your celebration! We are based out of the San Francisco-Bay Area in Northern California.

Beautifully yours,

Brilliant DIY: RED, WHITE and BLUE picnic decor...

This past Memorial Day kicked off our summer BBQ season. Our family and friends LOVE gatherings centered around food, fun & the sun! Our tradition is to camp out at our neighborhood park's picnic site (preferably the shady site!) ALL DAY & just keep grilling and hanging out 'til the sun goes down.
Here are some DIY decor ideas I came up with after gathering some supplies at the party supply store. I purchased the following:
1. Table cover roll (plastic, $9.99/100ft roll, obviously enough for plenty more BBQ picnics!) - this color was perfectly on-sale!
2. Paper streamers ($0.79/roll, excellent deal!) - I appropriately picked out red, white and blue for the occasion. You can pick out any color combo for your event. And as you can see, I braided the three colors and used it as the table runner to add color to the tables.
3. Functional centerpieces - I like this because there usually isn't that much space on the table after all the food arrives. So beautifully simple stacks of plastic cups and caddies for plastic utensils/paper napkins. Functional and brilliantly beautiful!

Now you're all set for July 4th as well!
