Fall for many is the perfect season. The season’s activities are well underway in Louisiana. Football games on the weekend, pep rallies welcome classmates from decades ago, barbecue grills sizzling at tailgate parties, and classes resume for students of all ages.
Fall also shepherds in a time of gathering for most. End of the year holiday gatherings play a large role in the fine traditions of Southern hospitality. Now is the time when celebrations and parties for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years are planned. End of the year gatherings is a time-honored tradition for corporate America. The act of showing appreciation to the people who make your business run plays an important role in morale and productivity. Make the most of the holidays with the help of the experienced staff and vendors at Le Pavilion’s private event venues in Lafayette, LA.
Halloween gatherings are a wonderful way to distribute information and honors to employees that have worked hard all year. Consider kicking off the Fall holiday season with an employee trick or treat held away from the office. As employees enter the event venue they are given a tote bag (trick or treat sack) and able to mingle with other guests at stations representing all facets of the business where they are given special treats to take home with them. Costumes optional!
Food and feasting as celebration always come to mind with Thanksgiving. A harvest-themed event highlighting the bounty of goods or services produced by your employees throughout the year is a wonderful way to gather and celebrate achievements. Whether you offer turkey with all the trimmings or a Cajun Thanksgiving with a crab, and shrimp boil, the idea is to celebrate your business achievements and blessings of the last year.
Christmas, Kwanza, and Hanukah are holidays that religious disciplines observe. Although the reasons for celebrations vary with each discipline, acknowledgment and sharing in December is a Southern business tradition. Plan a holiday soiree that includes cocktails, desserts that benefits a deserving non-profit that would allow employees to participate in giving back to the community where they live, work, and play. With a little ingenuity and planning, a heartfelt holiday happening such as a year-end signature corporate event could become a reason your business is sought by prospective customers.
Ringing in the New Year is yet another reason to celebrate at the end of the year. Whether having a mid-day family-friendly event or midnight champagne toasting welcome to 2019, use an event venue that can accommodate your special celebration with friendly staff, beautiful surroundings, and plenty of parking.

Less of a dress: Maybe pants aren’t your cup of tea and you rock dresses as part of your style almost daily. Consider a more casual wedding look that is still a dress but in a shorter length and simple, paired-down style. Since so many modern brides opt for a wedding venue that isn’t as formal as a cathedral, fashion follows suit. Dresses appropriate and special for a city hall, garden, or casual wedding venue were spotted on plenty of runways as the go to look.
Keep it simple if full length: Plenty of full length gowns were on runways that nodded to what is the traditional wedding dress since Queen Victoria wore long and white centuries ago. Long gowns for Fall 2018 tended to be simple. Great cut, fluid yet close to the body, and unadorned are the three best ways to describe major designer’s full-length wedding gown looks.
Cover it up: Long sleeves covered many a models’ arms whether the wedding look is a pant suit, casual yet special dress, or a full-length gown. Fall 2018 is the year of the sleeve. Off the shoulder looks were few and far between. Don’t care for long sleeves? Cover up with a drape cape, capelet, or even hood. Wraps were big and lush to were over your wedding dress or pants. A few designers are attached hoods veils that served as a capelet when lowered off the head. Wraps were fashioned in everything from satin to fun faux fur. Figure friendly and usable after the big day are two reasons to wrap up your wedding look.
Accessorize, Accessorize, Accessorize: Attire for Fall 2018 weddings may have been simple and paired down, but when it came to accessories: MORE is MORE!
Ornate head dresses, beaded veils, feathered and stoned with crystals headbands that flowed into a full-length veil were all beautiful touches that topped the bridal gown, pant suit, or casual dress. Add bold dangling earrings and shoes and shiny shoes but don’t stop there. Bracelets, necklaces, rings (in addition to the wedding band) and purses were all sparkling and fashioned in rich textiles to add oomph to your 2018 Fall Wedding look.
