Small Business Spotlight: Feastivities Events

If you are planning a special event and really want to wow your guests, hiring Feastivities Events is the perfect way to take things up a notch! This Philly-based company brings their own special touch to every event they plan, priding themselves on their versatility and ability to put their clients at ease throughout the planning process. Owners Meryl and Andrew Snow are Philly natives and operate their business out of the Manayunk neighborhood. They love bringing family and friends together through their customized events, stating “whether it’s an elegant wedding, a western style barbeque, a formal corporate gala, holiday cocktails or a garden tea, Feastivities works closely with every client to orchestrate a one-of-a-kind event!”

The 300 person staff at Feastivities is completely focused on customer service and quality. They are prepared to meet the dining, floral, décor, planning and venue needs for any event. Meryl Snow’s motto is “no detail is too small” and her team of event planners analyzes everything from vegetarian menu options to valet parking. The list of services that Feastivities provides is truly remarkable and they always aim to “let you relax and be a guest at your own event.”

The creative team at Feastivities love, love, loves planning weddings! They work tirelessly with full recognition that this is one of the most important days of their client’s lives in order to create dream weddings that honor the style and vision of each couple. Professionalism and trust are always the most important attributes that the Feastivities team puts forth as they guide clients through the process of making their special day a flawless celebration.

As if catering and event planning were not enough, Feastivities also offers floral and decor services as well as picnic catering through their subsidiary companies, Offshoots! and Philadelphia’s Picnic Company. In 2005, Offshoots! was added to the Feastivities lineup and has been remarkably successful due to its “exciting, innovative and dynamic decor concepts.” Offshoots! also focuses on global awareness and they only use floral distributors that adhere to the Fair Trade Practice Standards. Philadelphia’s Picnic Company offers full service picnic catering that is perfect for a casual and classy outdoor event. The more we spoke with Meryl and Andrew Snow, the more clear it became that when it comes to event planning, they have literally though of everything.

Feastivities regularly works with some amazing venues throughout the Philadelphia area. One of their favorite venues is the historical, Stotesbury Mansion in Center City. This 17th century home fuses the old world with urban chic and has a distinctly fabulous style. Cairnwood Mansion in Bryn Athyn, Pa has everything you could ask for in a venue. Posing as a private home, this event space offers a sense of elegance and intimacy while flaunting its architectural beauty. Feastivities also frequents the Arts Ballroom where, as Snow explains “cultural sophistication and diversity meet the richness of tradition and history.” With multiple decorative halls to entertain guests, this venue almost guarantees an impressive and successful event. Feastivities maintains relationships with a long list of stylish venues and they are fully equipped to adapt their services according to the venue and their clients wishes.

As you can tell, Feastivities has a different Philosophy than other event planning companies. They go above and beyond for every client and pay attention to every single detail of your event. The team of event planners listens closely to their clients to help them make the important decisions that lead to a perfectly tailored event. Meryl and Andrew Snow explain, “Most people have their event pictured in their minds, we help them bring that picture to life.” Feastivities is a prime example of the hardworking Philadelphia spirit and dedication to excellence.
