As we head into pool party season, we wanted to share one of our favorite pool events!

The Sunset Soiree started off strong with the Junkanoo Parade complete with Goombay Drums, cowbells, and bugle horns.

Throughout the night, a quartet serenaded, a strolling magician thrilled, and a hit & run caricature artist surprised guests with customized portraits.

If that wasn't enough for you, there was a silent disco party happening at the same time! The decor was also a huge part of the night with LED games such as corn hole and shuffleboard and a 360 photo booth.

A special thank you to Kristin, for taking the lead on this and seeing it through from start to finish!

We were so thrilled to collaborate with one of our favorite clients to produce 3 simultaneous virtual events. They wanted to thank their team for their hard work on a year long project. 

The team’s reward? They got to participate in one of three hour long virtual activations. We offered a chocolate tasting, bourbon tasting and a wine and cheese tasting. We partnered with some fabulous talent to share some really interesting tips and ideas about all of these categories of food and drink. 

The best part? Each guest received custom curated party packs shipped directly to their homes that in most cases included logoed items, but also had everything they would need for the savory and sweet tastings!! We heard nothing but rave reviews and were asked if the company could offer this every quarter! 

Let’s hear from you. What do you think was the number one choice of activations? Which would you choose? We would love to set this up for your company sometime soon. Remember any day can be Wine Down Wednesday!

We are delighted that we have been selected as a Finalist for the 2022 ADMEI Awards in the category of "Best Event That Never Happened." We will be headed to the ADMEI Annual Conference in Boston, Saturday February 26. Being named a 2022 ADMEI Award Finalist is an honor! 

The idea was for our guests to imagine an outdoor lawn space that transformed into a fairytale forest filled with dried moss, trees and storybook backdrops. Ivy and greenery to surround them, while hanging apples dressed the space.

On one side, the Good was to charm you with ethereal white lighting and roaming fairies, while the darker side might have tempted guests to dive deeper into the forest. . . this "Enchanted Fairytale Forest" 🧚🏻 🌳 party was expected to be a wonderfully immersive experience planned by e2 Destination and Event Management in an outdoor garden event space for 140 guests, incorporating both fantasy and reality.

To end our recent Amelia Island program, we executed a Gatsby-themed dinner to say goodbye! The oceanfront lawn transformed into a Roaring 20’s dinner, complete with black and gold sequin linens, white rose centerpiece accents, frosted window panel vignettes and a Dueling Piano duo!

This evening was accented with candy-colored 🍭🍬furniture groupings and oversized lawn games for some interactive fun. Our musical talent played acoustic renditions of classic tunes, as our guests relaxed in the furniture “lounges” keeping a mellow vibe.

This has been a tough week at e2. Last Friday, we lost an amazing team member, Tammi Miller. Tammi had worked with e2 in several different capacities over the past 5 years. Whether she was working as a transportation staff wrangling buses or in the office, wrangling details to help operate our programs, she was the best.

She was an extremely hard worker with a can do attitude, no matter what the task at hand was. In fact, at the very last event she did for us in January, we renamed her Handy Tammi because her backpack was full of zip ties, tape, pins, etc.

Tammi had developed breast cancer 7 years ago, and thought she had beat it, until a brain tumor was detected in January. She had brain surgery and chemotherapy. She fought a good fight and kept her sense of humor during all of it. To say we will miss her is an understatement. Tammi leaves behind her husband John and children, Liliana, Samuel and Adalei.

We will miss you Handy Tammi.

Our Story

You could say that event planning has always been our obsession. Erin Cook, E2’s founder, has been planning neighborhood events since the age of five. Her passion only continued to grow in college, where she helped plan events for the likes of Adam Sandler and Bob Dylan. The events have grown larger in attendees and space, but her childlike anticipation and enthusiasm still remain! Some of Erin’s career highlights include serving on the Super Bowl committee where she helped produce numerous events, styling the Revlon Hospitality Rooms at the MTV VMA’s, and producing the first ever Disney Storybook event at Cinderella’s Castle with Warren Buffet in attendance.

Since the inception of E2 in 2011, our team has grown with the addition of seasoned professionals that have helped catapult our company to the next level of success. Over the last 10 years, E2 has cultivated an extensive list of clients and friends who we are honored to work with. We feel our partners and employees are the backbone of our success, and the reason behind our client accolades.

As we celebrate 10 years, we hold our relationships in high regard and look forward to what the next 10 years will bring. We feel it speaks volumes that some of our very first clients return, year after year. We are thrilled to be doing what we love for a living!

We recently designed a colorful corrugated wall with a custom hat wall at the Rosen Shingle Creek, Gatlin Terrace in Orlando. This wall allows guests to choose their own hat. Adirondack chairs, slat furniture, and string lighting with star lanterns completed the look. Florida Event Décor took care of all the delivery/set/strike, following all CDC guidelines. Hats off to the Esquared team for calling on FED for this Colorful Florida event. E2 Destination and Event Management

A Message From The Central Florida Tourism Collective
A Drive-Through Delight for One Heart for Women & Children

By Maggie Ferrara, Social Media, Kenney Communications, INC. and Enjoy Florida Magazine (kenneycom.com, enjoyflorida.com)

MAY 12, 2020.- Cinco de Mayo was an interesting event this pandemic-hit year. However, that didn’t stop our team at Kenney Communications from celebrating – safely – with a drive-through donations drive, collecting money, clothing, home goods, hygiene, and food donations for One Heart for Women and Children.

This unusual but imaginative Cinco de Mayo party was hosted along with E2 Destination and Event Management, a Hosts Global Alliance Member, gmfevents, Wildly Different Team Building Experiences Matt Jylha Photography Florida Event Decor Two Left Feet, Inc.

In the parking lot of The Florida Mall, a DJ from Two Left Feet spun fun, party music, while Cinco de Mayo-themed statues and decorations lined a coned drive-through area.

As guests drove through the queue, volunteers cheered for the donors with signs saying “Ur The Best,” “Honk If You Are Happy To Be Out Of The House,” and “Hands In The Air If This Is Your First Time In Real Clothes In A Month!” Volunteers gave out prizes and specialty sunglasses with the logo “Shades Of Hope” on them.

Once vehicles arrived at the head of the queue, our Kenney Communications team (wearing masks and gloves and using plenty of hand sanitizer), retrieved items for donation from the vehicles. From there, we sorted, organized and placed items in the truck. Guests circled around to the exit of the queue and received a drive-through ice cream treat from Jerry’s Food Truck.

With the combined efforts of the community, our travel and tourism industry partners, matching donations from generous sponsors, and support from online donors, the event raised more than $46,300, plus a full box truck of items for those in need.

Stephanie Bowman, founder of One Heart for Women and Children, said, “Thank you for all the support and love! And a huge thank you to the team that came out to make it all happen. We could not do any of this without each and every piece of the puzzle.”

Through it all, the resilience, spirit, and generosity of the tourism industry and the Orlando community continues to thrive and stay strong through these tough times. We continue to spread joy, dance and laughs to serve our community. We have come together now, more than ever, to support each other to make it through until we can welcome our beloved travelers again.

More Information about One Heart for Women and Children

One Heart for Women and Children is a non-profit organization founded by Stephanie Bowman out of downtown Orlando to support families as they transition and overcome many hardships of daily living in the Central Florida Area. It has established partnerships with many Central Florida resources to educate, empower, and mentor men, women, and children.

The organization provides clothes, food, school supplies, personal hygiene items, and household items to families and individuals. They also offer a full spectrum of education and prevention services to families, including Life skills and Parenting Classes, Youth Education and Outreach, and Drug and Alcohol Prevention.

Their outreach usually supports more than 3,000 people per month. However, in recent months they have seen this number increase dramatically to providing food and resources to over four times that amount, with the demand rising daily to over 20,000 meals. They are committed to continuing to provide food and resources to ALL in need as Central Florida families are impacted by the current economic situation.

One Heart’s holistic approach to serving the community declares that every piece of the puzzle is necessary to complete the mission – Faith, Resources, Hope, Support, and Community.

The community food pantry is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 11:00am to 3:00pm at their downtown Orlando location. The thrift store is open on Saturdays from 8:00am to 2:00pm.

If you would like to get involved, One Heart For Women and Children is still accepting financial, home good, hygiene, clothing, and non-perishable food donations. Physical items can be dropped off to their pantry Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 1:00pm – 4:00pm.

They have also received a generous offer from one of the local partners – to match dollar for dollar all donations (with an unlimited cap) until Father’s Day.

One Heart for Women and Children is located at 2040 N Rio Grande Ave, Orlando, FL, 32804; www.oneheartforwomenandchildren.org; tel. 321-299-4594.
