Project Breakdown: Best of Savannah 2013



Screen Shot 2013-09-27 at 4.28.52 PM


This year’s Best of Savannah party hosted by Savannah Magazine was a swinging Jazz bash centered around the opulence of the roaring 1920′s. With Gatsby’s taste and a fresh color palette in mind, we had the pleasure of setting a swanky background to what would become one of the most talked about events of the year.

Take a peek below at some of the photos captured by photographer Katie McGee for Savannah Magazine and leave a comment with your favorite vignette of the night!

Camp Spooky 2013


Last weekend we loaded the Rethink bus with little campers from the Downtown Neighborhood Association (D.N.A.) and headed straight to Camp Spooky: a camp experience filled with haunted tents, ghost stories, tricks, and of course treats. Situated in Telfair Square, the “costumed” campers were encouraged to create spooky crafts and gather ’round the fire to hear some of Savannah’s most haunted tales. Grab hold of your flashlight and be sure to look out for ghosts as you peek at photos taken during camp:

Project Breakdown: Gentleman’s Club


Last week we shared the celebration of both our latest Rethink member along with Joel’s birthday with party decor themed around a gentleman’s club. As is with most of our small events, this party was put together using simple DIY tricks and various vintage finds. Our advice? Always keep a lookout for unique, quality pieces that can be reused or up cycled into crucial event decor. With a little creativity, a stack of suitcases becomes a side table; an old crate becomes a candy bar; those old mason jars become table centerpieces. Who says parties on a budget can’t take the spotlight?



Rethink Tips:

When to spend: Photographer, Caterer, Music

When to save: Decor, Take-Aways, Invites*

*We used Overnight Prints to order our custom invites cheap and quick – but don’t be fooled. To actually get anything overnight is pretty pricey. We recommend allowing yourself 2-3 weeks to get the best deal.


Download our invites (with space to personalize your event) here!

Note: We’ve formatted the invites to print a 4×6 greeting card on Overnight Prints


If the thought of a proper evening affair sends your top hat into a spin, not to worry! We’ve compiled a list of items needed to keep guests coming your way and worries at bay:



Download the party checklist to keep your planning a breeze. In case you missed it, grab our custom paper bow-ties and invites. Going for a different color scheme? Cut out a bow tie and trace over any patterned paper you’d like for a fully-customized fete.
