Small gatherings have a special place in our hearts. Intimate affairs are fantastic to cultivate the feelings, to make for a petite experience filled with warmth and special details. Whether it’s an elopement in Greece, a birthday party celebration, an engagement dinner party, or a dinner with friends, small gatherings are a way of bringing value to the moments spent with the people that matter to you.

Small gatherings: Inspired by Denmark and Paris

The Danes once more have everything figured out when introducing the world to the concept of Hygge. As a way to celebrate mindfulness and being cozy, hygge is about an atmosphere and an experience, rather than about things. It is about being with the people we love. A feeling of home. A feeling that we are safe, that we are shielded from the world and allow ourselves to let our guard down. You may be having an endless conversation about small or big things in life. Humans today are desperate for anything that provides the feel-good neurotransmitter serotonin, like friendship, human contact, and hugs – in other words, experiences focused around the closest people in our life, small gatherings of love.

Now, a couple of kilometers away, the Parisians always thought of the smaller gatherings as the only way of hosting a dinner party or a celebration. Intimate, candlelit, and with a deliciously french menu, small gatherings were celebrated throughout modern times for their ability to cultivate conversation and quality time with the people you really care about! Chic, non?

Small gatherings: A celebration of the atmosphere

Especially nowadays, but yet again long before that, our company loves the concept of a smaller affair to celebrate life’s important moments. These mini-celebration ideas include all the creativity, cuteness, and zest we are known for but are geared towards smaller, more intimate gatherings. With a smaller guest list comes a ton of inspiration for a day spent with friends, an unforgettable and warm experience that’ll fill your polaroid albums!

Small gatherings: A new approach to wedding days

Intimate weddings, like our aesthetics, are all about the feels. A small wedding has a special atmosphere that will create magical moments spent with friends. An intimate wedding is more than just the number of people.  It is the way we reflect on the couple’s personalities and their engagement with their guests. It is about creating unforgettable memories.  Bringing the concept of small gathering into a wedding day takes so much pressure out, bringing love in the front, spending moments together with the center of your attention.

A very intimate wedding offers a celebration with close-knit friends and family. Good company goes a long way and it is always the people that make it special anyway. We’re urging our couples to take the time and welcome their guests in an intimate environment, where they will also find mingling a pleasure in the smaller crowd that a small gathering entails.

Small gatherings: Being creative

In an intimate celebration, you can afford to go into detail and personalize, especially when it comes to personalized projects, wedding favors, or party gifts. You invest in getting a favor that will really wow your guests. Going the extra mile and showing your token of appreciation with bespoke gifts will make guests love your creativity, valuing the time and effort put in creating such a lovely and warm experience. Sourcing the best artisan pieces, items from local vendors and small studios will add style to a small gathering that celebrates friendship! Or…you can have none of the above and focus on the romance of fresh flowers and champagne. A reason we love small gatherings is the freedom of choosing exactly what fits the style and the occasion! Freedom reinvented!

Small gatherings: A new approach to parties

Not everyone’s happy place consists of many people and loud music. We get this! A small gathering can be a lovely opportunity to celebrate a birthday or engagement. A filling dinner, a lovely setting, something unique and amazing just for you! We’ve designed many intimate birthday parties where the focus was given to the “get together” feeling and enjoying a fine meal with the closest and dearest as opposed to larger parties filled with hustle. Maybe a pizza-themed birthday party, an engagement dinner filled with peonies for two, or a 60’s celebration for you and your friends – count us in! We will help you focus on the sentiment, take care of your friends, and genuinely celebrate with the people that matter the most to you!

Small Gatherings: a new way of celebrating

Overall, it’s your wedding/birthday/important day so why not have spent it how you like with your friends and family? Be comfortable and feel free to party the way you want because you know everyone there will love the moment and just get it. And, although a destination celebration in Greece can be as big or as tiny as you want, if a small gathering sounds more like you than a large lavish affair, we can help you start planning that small affair you have always dreamed of that is a reflection of who you are!
