Jet Off to…
A Tuscan Villa: Under the sun in Tuscany you’ll feel reborn. Located in Central Italy, Tuscany is a prominent agricultural region that provides a backdrop for some of history’s most celebrated artists. In fact, it is regarded as the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance. From the moment you set your eyes on Tuscany’s rolling hills, you’ll see a brilliant palette of color. Olive trees, sprawling vineyards, mineral rich earth, centuries old stone villas and terraces. It feels like home.
The secret to the hearts of your guests with a Tuscan-themed soiree is through the senses. Celebrate the food of the region with an Italian-themed menu that uses fresh produce that’s abundant in the region. Serve up a Tuscan Chianti and breathe in the wine’s notes. Imagine the soil, the sunshine, the herbs, the trees, and the breeze through it all.

A Lively Bazaar in Morocco: Located in North Africa on the Mediterranean sea, Morocco is a culturally diverse and rich destination that is a literal feast for the senses. Ancient history is all around you. The spices are intoxicating. The architecture is unbelievably beautiful. And it showcases one of the most diversified cuisines in the world with influences from Europe, Africa, and the Mediterranean. Everything about this destination is delicious.
A fragrance party themed around Morocco is all about transporting your guests around the world and back again by bringing together flavors, scents, and sounds that you’d find in a bazaar. Picture bright threads of saffron at a spice vendor, colorful handwoven rugs and tapestries, the tang of olives, and the fragrant, sweet oranges picked moments before coming to market.
