Unexpected Places to Find Inspiration: Part III

We've been emphasizing the importance of finding inspiration for your event a lot lately (if you didn't gather that from the two other posts on this topic) and I do recommend that you read Part I and Part II before this post. You know, for the sake of peace and order.

As we continue to list out more unexpected places that you may just bump into inspiration, keep in mind that inspiration comes from a communicated idea that strikes something inside us. So trust your instinct, the emotions attached to your source of inspiration. After all, when planning an event, you are wanting to curate a space to communicate a feeling to your guests.
