Just as writers experience the dreaded writer’s block, event planners, too, can get stuck in a rut. The Internet is a great place for sparking ideas, but options are limitless. How does one find inspiration with so many different things to search? Pinterest is a classic go-to, but Instagram might be the stronger choice. Instead of scrolling through an endless amount of pictures—some relevant and others completely useless—following someone you admire will give you more successful ideas you can incorporate into your events. We’ve listed a few accounts that boast exceptional ideas.

prestonrbailey Preston Bailey—an extremely talented planner with a celebrity client list—posts pictures that make us swoon.  His transformation photos that show how he decorated a venue our are favorite, but the close-ups of bouquets, tablescapes and décor items also stand out.

thepartygoddess Marley Majcher definitely lives up to her name. The veteran event planner and author has planned major celebrity events and appeared on a number of television shows doling out advice. Her food pictures are droolworthy and the motivational quotes she posts make us think outside the box.

mindyweiss Mindy Weiss’ event photos run the gamut from spectacular weddings to graffiti-themed birthday parties. Her décor ideas and stunning venue pictures will give you just the inspiration you’re looking for.

And you can’t forget…us!

Sometimes small communities are overlooked as meeting and event destinations when frequently they have the capacity to host moderate-sized groups in an affordable and enjoyable fashion, especially if the towns are used to welcoming tourists. It may take some piecing together of lodging and venues, but Minturn (located between Vail and Beaver Creek) demonstrated how by hosting MountainCon 2019 from May 3-5.
