One of the main issues we come across is discrepancy between budget and actual event cost. While not all events can be saved there are a few things you can do that will help reduce the cost of your event without sacrificing the integrity. That being said we've put together our favorite tips to save money when booking an event.

Every Christmas morning, my mom enjoys her "Christmas martini". She finds a new martini recipe every year and proceeds to make martinis for everyone starting first thing in the morning and ending sometime after dinner. Since I'm not much of a martini drinker, I've put together a list of some of my favorite holiday cocktails you might want to try. It's highly encouraged to make these cocktails when celebrating with friends, dealing with your family, or trying to forget about the mistakes you made at the company holiday party.
