Your Perfect Tan for Down the Aisle.

Now it is time for that perfect tan. But most brides aren't familiar with tanning. And you don't want to look like a lobster on the day of your wedding. So what is a bride to do? Simple, try a spray on tan to get your base going and then start going to a tanning bed. Here is what you need to do. About 2 months prior to the wedding you want to start consistently exfoliating your skin and hydrating it with a good healthy lotion. After about a week of this then you can use a micro-mist self tanning spray. Use the spray about 2-3 times a week. Start out with shade #2 and then bump up to #3. Also start your tanning sessions by going for 5 minutes for a week then each week bump it up 5 more minutes until you are up to 20 minutes per session. With the combination of the tanning spray and the tanning sessions your tan will be flawless.

Green it Like you Mean it...

Green. Everyone is doing it. Do you feel like you should be too??

Pinching pennies, streamlining budgets and looking for ways to re-use and be organic are thoughts many of us have when planning an event.

There are several ways to be earth friendly while staying within budget for your corporate or private event. First skip the traditional paper invitations and corporate literature and go online instead. You can save hundreds of dollars on paper, stamps, ink and envelopes by going online.

For decor use potted plants that can be taken home as a favor by guests or re-used for another event.

For food, going organic for your menu doesn't mean you have to bust your food budget. Choose budget friendly veggie and poultry dishes. Also fore go the plastic water bottles and use filtered water in carafes. If you are offering bar drinks at your event there are many companies making organic alcohol available.

In the end the misconception is that being green will cost more than not. But actually you can cut costs and be green. Ethically we can't afford to not go green.

So for your next corporate of private event consider talking with Absolute Agenda to green it like you mean it!!

Ambient Lighting Can Help Set the Mood...

Let's talk about Ambient Lighting! The definition of ambient lighting is: Ambient lighting is diffused light (often colored, using "gels") that sets the mood of a room or outdoor area and provides basic illumination over a broad area, often adding a decorative touch, and very often as "uplighting."

We love uplighting and mood lighting! It really creates atmosphere around a room or outdoor area and it can really be customized for your theme. Just by adding one uplight in each corner of the room or around landscaping outside it can totally change the look of an area. Add a colored gel to the light and the room can be transformed to match the mood of your event!

Here are a few pics to demonstrate the difference that ambient lighting can do for your event!
