Safety with a Side of Whimsy

Event planners and caterers never have a shortage of hats to wear: photographer, designer, therapist, family counselor, cheerleader. The list goes on, and now another hat has been added to the mix: social distancing guru. As events return, planners are being challenged to adhere to new physical distancing guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19. They are rising to the challenge and getting creative.
“That’s what we’ve been relying on, it’s about thinking outside the box,” said Katie Kirby, Creative Director for Revolution Event Design & Production out of Baltimore. “People still want to enjoy, be together and do it safely, so it’s our responsibility to come up with how that can happen and how we can do that for them. We’re the people in charge of celebrating these moments.”
Check out the Special Events magazine article, "Safety with a Side Whimsy" for ideas on how to re-enforce COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions, creatively.
