Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens…. well, not quite.  Our favorite things include the smell of rain on the earth, a roaring fire with crackling wood under the stars, a full moon over Yosemite,  and a perfect gardenia.  But these don’t necessarily translate to something you can use for your event, so let us share some of our absolute favorite specialty services that help complete every event to perfection.  From specialty lighting, draping, and rentals to entertainment, bartenders that entertain, transportation and uniquely charming services, check out our favorites below!

We have many more recommendations that are not published here, so if you need some input or more recommendations and are a current SBWCW&E client, drop us a line and we are glad to help with more recommendations.
