Here at MOOD Events, we love events that serve a greater cause. A dear friend of ours is once again putting on The Masquerade Charity Ball (currently in its 4th year), and we couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of it this year. As a participating sponsor of this year’s ball, we would like to officially extend an invitation to all of our friends, colleagues and fans who are looking to support a great cause, and have a blast doing so.This year, the ball will benefit Primary Children’s Hospital and will take place on Wednesday, October 30th from 8:00 pm to midnight at the Grand Hall at the Gateway Mall. This is a formal event. A professional DJ will provide the soundtrack for the evening and two photographers will capture all of the highlights of the night, as well as your favorite moments.
Pre-sale tickets are $15 and can be purchased online HERE, and tickets at the door are $15 before 9:00 pm and $20 after that (cash and debit/credit cards will be accepted at the door). All photos from the event will be made available to attendees and are included in the ticket price.
This will be the biggest Masquerade Charity Ball yet! The venue is four times the size of previous years so even more people can enjoy the event and raise more money for Primary Children’s Hospital. The venue is phenomenal and the dance will be even better! This being the case, please help us spread the word!
Here is how you can help:
- If you haven’t already, join the event on Facebook HERE.
- Once you have done that, invite all of your friends.
- Share the event on your Facebook page. Share it on other pages to which you belong.

Aloha! We’re back from the sandy shores of Hawaii and wishing we were still digging our toes in the sand. So to ease the pain, jump back on the healthy bandwagon, and remind us a bit of the tropics, we’re sharing with you one of our favorite go-to summer salad recipes we just can’t get enough of.
Summery, beachy, refreshing and bright – this summer salad can easily be incorporated into any summer wedding buffet, and is even hearty enough to be served as an entrée for a luncheon. Talk to your caterer about how you can incorporate this fresh salad into your wedding meal. Enjoy!
Today we are showcasing the amazing talents of Ann Elizabeth of Ann Elizabeth Custom Graphic Design & Printing Studio. We recently worked with Ann to design Lucy’s Candyland 3rd Birthday invitations – and Ann’s ingenious design was beyond perfection. Take a look for yourself!

We’ve enticed you for weeks now with our mouthwatering photos of refreshing summer mocktails. And now, we’re sharing the recipes with you! We’re no culinary pros – so you won’t find exact measurements in these recipes. We do it all by taste. Besides, that’s half the fun! Enjoy!
A few weeks ago, our good friend Shelly at Orchid Dynasty asked us to mix up some fun summer mocktails for the 9th and 9th District’s “Shop, Truck & Stroll” event. As self-proclaimed foodies, we of course obliged.
We wanted to keep the drinks simple and refreshing, with an Asian nod, and an herbaceous twist. So what did we come up with? A Watermelon & Thai Basil Soda and a Ginger Lemon & Thyme Cooler. Not only did they look good, but they tasted amazing – especially on a hot, summer afternoon.

Have you seen our latest feature in the newest issue of Salt Lake/Park City Bride and Groom Magazine? We paired-up with Alexis Mattox Design and created this “glam place-card-turned-party-favor” out of gold acrylic mirror.
To see our feature in print, along with the rest of this beautiful publication, head over to your local bookstore or grocery store and pick-up a copy. You can also see more of Hailey’s 30th Birthday Party here.
Sometimes aloha can mean hello, and sometimes it can mean goodbye. Unfortunately this time, it means goodbye.
Our longtime friend and photographer, Ev Wunder of Eveline Wunder Photography (formerly Little Wunders Photography) is moving to Maui with her little family. Since launching our event planning company here in Utah two years ago, Ev has consistently captured our event design work beautifully. As a result of her skillful work, we were fortunate to be featured on national blogs and local magazine publications from the get go.
If any of you are lucky enough to be living on Maui, count yourself as doubly lucky. Because now you have an amazing photographer in your midst. (If you are interested in setting up a session with Ev, please contact her through her website here.)
Ev, we will miss you dearly. We wish you and your family all the best in Maui! ~Aloha!
You’ve probably seen our recent posts on our blog and Facebook about Carly and Matthew’s beautiful Park City destination wedding. Today, we wanted to share with you a little bit of what Carly had to say about working with yours truly. Carly and Matt live all the way in Texas, so we were their eyes and ears here in Utah. We love what we do, and a simple love note like Carly’s just makes everything so much sweeter! Thank you, Carly!
“I want to express our gratitude for the wonderful work Mood Events did for our wedding this past weekend. Mood took care of coordinating our ceremony and cocktail reception, and handled everything beautifully. We were planning the wedding from out-of-state, so the extra work Garret and his team did in advance of our wedding put my mind at ease and helped me visualize the space. Mood Events handled pulling together all the details- coordinating vendors and rentals, and handling everything day-of. The florals and decor that Mood created were beautiful and they went above and beyond expectations by adding extra little touches everywhere. Mood was well-prepared on the day of the event with lots of backup flowers, and Garrett and his team subtly coordinated the events, making sure everyone was in the right place at the right time. I got so many compliments on the beautiful setup, gorgeous flowers, and general wonderful ambiance of the space. Mood literally took a blank canvas and created a meaningful ceremony space for our wedding. I couldn’t have been happier with the professional, efficient, and thoughtful service Mood provided, and I know they were one of the big reasons our wedding was was so perfect!” – Carly, Bride
