Tips on Rescheduling Corporate Events

Tips on Rescheduling Corporate Events

In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, companies of all sizes have been faced with the need to shift focus and operations rapidly. If you’re in-office, a bit of desk shuffling has become necessary to ensure proper social distancing. Many companies have even elected to ditch the office space and go completely virtual. Either way, another fallen domino is the company-sponsored, “crowd-intensive” events. Whether a corporate vacation or an off-campus company meeting, many businesses have had to reschedule corporate events. 

We hope everyday life gets back on track towards normalcy soon. Once it does, you’ll hopefully be ready and able to put together that company getaway once again without fear. 

At Deer Creek Golf Club, we’ve done our fair share of hosting corporate events. As a South Florida country club, we miss the fun times just as much as you do, but we look forward to catering to your business’ needs as soon as we can. If you’re looking for tips on rescheduling corporate events, we’ve put together a helpful list of ways to get things in order for your next gathering.

Have a Few Plans Ready to Go

If 2020 showed us anything, it’s that we never know what’s around the corner. It’s not ideal, but flexibility is key to navigating the task of rescheduling corporate events during a pandemic. You need to have a few dates and plans set out for your event. If you’re unable to be flexible with the date and time for a certain event idea, it might be best to further postpone until the world is a bit less volatile. The last thing you want to do is splurge in advance for a rescheduled corporate event only to have to cancel it – again.

 

Virtual Happy Hour

If you’ve been among the many companies who elected to call your living room an office for the past few months, there’s no reason to leave the couch for a corporate event and risk your health and safety. Hop on a Zoom call with the team and host your own virtual happy hour. Put together a themed dress code or distribute the necessary pieces to pull off a murder mystery dinner party. Save the big expensive outings for after the pandemic has passed. There’s plenty of teambuilding to be done virtually.

 

Create a Safety Plan

If you’re ready to get your small office back together for a corporate golf outing, you need to prepare for all the safety protocols that will need to be taken. Limit the person-to-person interactions, keep disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizer handy, and—please—wear a mask. We miss the fun outings with the office as much as anyone, but the most important thing must be the safety of your employees. 

Once you’re looking into rescheduling a corporate event, look no further than Deer Creek Golf Club. We have a storied history of hosting corporate events in our expansive event space in Deerfield, FL. We’re a perfect venue for reunions, weddings, and corporate events. Call 954-429-0006 to get your reservation started and the event planned. We hope to see you soon!

Micro Weddings Are Becoming More Popular in the Era of COVID-19

Micro Weddings Are Becoming More Popular in the Era of COVID-19

Planning your wedding probably looked a lot different than it does now after the coronavirus decided to uproot the entire world. There is an overwhelming amount of uncertainty as travel bans, social distancing guidelines, and the number of COVID-19 cases rises. While you might’ve preferred to have a large gathering to celebrate your marriage, however, micro weddings are becoming more popular amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. The special event experts of our South Florida country club are here to share a few things about having a smaller wedding during this unpredictable time.

What Is a Micro Wedding?

A micro wedding is a celebration that honors your marriage with 50 guests or less. The traditional wedding is typically on the larger size, often with over 100 guests. However, with a smaller wedding, it’s a more intimate setting.

When you choose to have your wedding with less than 50 guests, you are more prone to less stress due to fewer accommodations you need to make. Micro weddings can often save you money due to a smaller guest list. However, some couples prefer to spend their entire budget on a macro experience but with a micro guest list at their smaller wedding. You might be able to get the wedding of your dreams while even saving some money too.

The Rise of Micro Weddings

Couples are choosing micro weddings instead of their original plans due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. Micro weddings during this time involve a smaller guest list and a more intimate ceremony. Coronavirus certainly left many jobless and has put a significant strain on the economy. Micro weddings are known for keeping costs down, which is a good thing during this unforeseen chaos.

A smaller guest list allows more quality time you can spend with your loved ones. Larger weddings make it more challenging to spend time with all of your guests. When you choose to have a micro wedding, you don’t have to cut your interactions short; instead, you can spend plenty of time with all of your guests.

One of the biggest reasons there is a rise in micro weddings is due to safety. There is a strong possibility there will be continued travel bans as COVID-19 wreaks havoc on your celebrations. When you choose to have a smaller wedding, you don’t have to worry so much about the travel bans when you keep it simpler. Even if your wedding isn’t until the end of the year or even next year, having a smaller wedding planned can help eliminate the risk of potential downsizing; not to mention your guests would probably feel better in a more intimate setting.

You can also include those who didn’t make the guest list by utilizing technology. You can set up a live stream of your wedding ceremony for those who are sick or at-risk loved ones so they can still witness your special day. You can also send your guests a party favor to make them feel like they were in attendance at your wedding.

While the era of micro weddings is upon us, it’s important to educate yourself on its advantages during the COVID-19 outbreak. You might have dreamed of a large wedding, but keep in mind the benefits of micro weddings. Our South Florida wedding venue is a perfect option for your intimate micro wedding. Please contact us today to learn more about our smaller wedding options.

New Moms! Are You Out of Baby Shower Ideas?

New Moms! Are You Out of Baby Shower Ideas?

Congratulations on your little one coming soon! Becoming a mother can be really thrilling, however, the combination of excitement and hormones can also be exhausting and looking through different baby shower themes might not seem like so much fun. Going straight pink if it’s a girl or blue if it’s a boy seems a bit archaic, and, of course, you’d like to add a bit flair to the soiree. Our event planning team at one of the premier baby shower venues in South Florida list awesome baby shower ideas to try out. 

Baby Shower Themes for Boys

Whether you’re looking for a wildlife theme or an elegant event, there are plenty of baby shower ideas for boys that can be used for inspiration.

Mustache Party

The color scheme for the mustache-themed party can be absolutely anything. Bring the overall look together by color coordinating the cookies, candies, macaroons, or other sweet treats as well as the drinking straws and even the water bottles. Include a photo backdrop with mustache props and pun-tastic phrases or create a balloon arch in the shape of a mustache.

 

Santa Baby

Santa, toy, gold glitter

As the holiday season is right on our heels, why not throw a holiday-themed baby shower? Blend the holiday season into your baby shower theme for twice as much delight. Use elements of the with a red, white, and green color palette or a snowflake-shaped cake and Christmas decorations.

 

Lego

legos, toys

With a new baby on the way, the chances of LEGOs in your future are pretty high. Therefore, use LEGO and its brand to create a fun baby shower theme. Focus on bright primary colors, arrange colorful cupcakes in a rectangular box and make it look like a few Lego bricks, and add some Lego pieces in the goody bags for kids to play with at or after the party. Decorate each table with one of the Lego primary colors and maybe even create a photo booth cutout with square holes for the faces instead of round ones.

Baby Shower Themes for Girls

When throwing a baby shower for a girl, you don’t have to adhere to a strict pink, princess theme. Explore your creativity with the following baby shower ideas to celebrate your baby girl.

Unicorn Party

cupcakes, cake, flowers, balloons

Unicorns have been all the rage the past few years, so why not use it as inspiration for a party to celebrate the new baby girl? Bright or pastel colors mixed with metallic elements really create a magical setting. A unicorn surprise cake with candy inside that spills out when it’s sliced is such a fun detail that everyone will love! Add a unicorn horn to the cake, cake pops, or cupcakes and offer fun, fruity sweet treats. Let’s not forget about the glitter…there is no such thing as too much glitter at a unicorn-themed party.

 

Tropical Paradise

flamingos, palm leaves

Since you’re in the Sunshine State, after all, throw a bright, tropical-themed party for your new little girl. Decorate the walls with bright orange, yellow, pink, and green decorations like palm fronds, flamingos, and pineapples. Add gold accents for a little shine in your centerpieces, pineapple candles around the tables, and flamingo picks for the cheeseboard. Infuse tropical flavors in all your dishes and desserts as well.

 

Outdoor Elegance

palm trees, fountain, banquet hall

As our baby shower rental space also offers an outdoor space, plan an elegant, outdoor baby shower with nature in mind. Include fresh fruit options and floral arrangements for a chic garden party. The surrounding palm trees and shrubbery will lift your spirits as you celebrate the new bundle of joy on its way!

 

If you’d like to book our events venue for an upcoming baby shower or a “gender reveal” party, contact a member of our staff today to get started. Once again, congratulations!

Common Myths About Wedding Planning

Common Myths About Wedding Planning

Common Myths About Wedding Planning

Planning out a wedding can be a hard, but fun task. It includes booking wedding venues in South Florida, finding the right wedding cake, the perfect wedding dress, and so on. However, it’s important to be easy on yourself while planning your wedding so that you don’t end up a wreck, mentally, on your special day. There are many prevalent wedding myths you don’t necessarily have to follow to have “the perfect wedding.” The wedding experts of our South Florida country club can explain the common myths about wedding planning you don’t need to follow.

 

White Wedding Dress

If you think you need to wear a big white dress and veil to fulfill this important moment in your life – you don’t. Don’t feel pressured by common wedding planning myths to wear something that you really don’t want. For the wedding dress, you don’t have to wear white. Many bridal fashion designers create wedding dresses in various colors – dusty blue, blush pink, and even floral prints. You can pair these dresses with bold colors from a sash or cardigan. The same applies to a veil – you don’t necessarily have to wear one. Good alternatives for a veil include hair clips with feathers or flower crowns, which could also open up new possibilities for your hairstyle.

 

DIY Wedding Planning Saves Money

Don’t be mistaken in thinking DIY wedding planning is the cheapest route. If you don’t do any research pertaining to DIY wedding planning, you might end up buying more paper, flowers, and other materials in bulk than you need. Purchasing materials to create your personalized stationery and flower arrangements can wrack up the total cost of your wedding, which may surpass your budget. Doing your research can help prevent you from spending more on DIY wedding planning than a professional wedding planner.

 

Invite Those who Invited You

This is your special day – no one else’s. Feeling pressured to invite a friend or associate who invited you to their wedding is a common wedding planning myth you don’t need to succumb to. It’s a very special day, therefore, you should invite those closest to your heart. If you’re not able to get everyone on the guest list, let them know upfront that due to space and budgeting reasons, you must curb the guest list.

Deer Creek Golf Club’s Predictions for the Master’s Tournament 2019

Deer Creek Golf Club’s Predictions for the Master’s Tournament 2019

It’s that time of the year again folks: Master’s Tournament 2019! Each year, our golf connoisseurs at our Deer Creek golf course like to predict the winners of the U.S. Majors, and each year we anticipate our predictions proving true. In most cases, the outcome reflects our projections pretty closely; those we expect to end up on top usually do, as second or third place winners are usually those from our predictions.

Our South Florida golf course not only enjoys predicting the winners, but we also like to determine who will be the most interesting to watch. With that being said, the tournament never goes the way you might expect at the Augusta National Golf Club, mainly due to the fact that it’s a very popular golf club with a challenging course that’s played every year.

The Masters Tournament will begin on Thursday, April 11, and end on Sunday, April 14. It will take place at the Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, GA, and just like the year prior, the winner will take home the prize money purse of $11 million. So, as per tradition at our South Florida golf course, here are our 2 highly-anticipated victors for the Masters 2019.

 

Jordan Spieth

Having not been in the top 10 on the PGA Tour since last July due to his loss of the 54-hole lead, Spieth has been working hard to regain his position. On Friday, March 15, Spieth had completed the round with a “69 for a 36-hole total of one-over 145,” 1 which is just two strokes away from qualifying to play that weekend.

Despite his recent shortcomings, Spieth plans to perfect his swings in the weeks leading up to the 83rd edition of the Master’s Tournament. He’s the winner of three major titles, including his victory at 2017 British Open at Royal Birkdale and Spieth accomplished a last-minute charge to third-place at last year’s Master’s. Here, at our South Florida golf course, we always root for the underdog!

 

Patrick Reed

As part of the tradition, of course, we can’t leave out the winner of last year’s Master’s in our predictions. Patrick Reed scored his victory last year with a three-foot par-saving putt that would earn him his first win in a major championship. He managed to shoot 71 in the final round and completed at 15-under 273, brushing past Rickie Fowler.
