Eventiques Wedding and Event Flea Market

If you couldn't make it to our 2014 Eventiques Flea Market event, you are in luck! We are hosting another Wedding and Event Flea Market in 2015 on April 11th and 12th.

What is this event you ask? Eventiques wedding and event flea market was founded by Ruthie and Lauren of Eutopia Events and is focused on helping people find decorative elements all in one location! Décor from past events is given new life by being reused or re-purposed for someone else’s wedding, shower, even a birthday party. Looking for something old, something new, or something borrowed? You will find carefully selected, used event décor, vintage goods, wedding gowns, unique rentals, and handmade and locally sourced pieces for your wedding or special celebration.

Our last event took place at Eastworks in their events space. It was a fun-filled day for brides, grooms, event planners, photographers, designers, and people who just loved to shop! Check out some of the photos below from last year's event, photographed by Cronin Hill Photography. Cronin Hill Photography is one of our fabulous sponsors for 2015!

If you are in the market for event items, you can purchase tickets for our Spring event online for only $5. Door tickets will be $8 the weekend of the event. This year's event will be hosted in a much larger space than in 2014. We're very busy working on filling the space with inspiration, event items, local merchants, and much more!

Here are the people who help to bring Eventiques Wedding and Event Flea Market to life. A lot of hard work goes into creating an event like this and we are so fortunate to have some great people on our team.  We're looking forward to this year's Eventiques Flea Market!

Milk & Cookies Baby Shower

When our very own Lauren was pregnant, expecting her baby in late June, we helped her family host a baby shower in her honor in early May. It was so much fun to help put together a shower for her to celebrate her little one! We did a Milk and Cookies theme for this intimate event, including cow figurines that Lauren has been collecting since she was a kid. The shower was hosted in a beautiful location in Holden Mass and the weather couldn't have been more perfect!

Lauren and her husband affectionately called the baby Rupert, though they didn't know if they were having a girl or a boy. On June 26th, they welcomed a sweet baby boy into their family and named him Dylan Anthony. He has been such a joyful addition to our Eutopia Events family, we are so incredibly happy for Lauren and her husband!

There were a variety of milk flavors available and lots of cookies, of course! The favors were milk bottles with chocolate chip cookie mix, so guests could make delicious cookies at home. We'll share the tutorial on to make them in another post. 

Thanks to Classical Tents and Party Goods for the rentals—natural wood garden chairs, linens, tables and glassware. Thank you also to Fairview Gardens for the flowers and all the people who helped make the shower possible!

The Dr. and the First Responder

Planning a wedding while working full-time can be a challenge, especially if you work odd and long hours. It's even harder if you and your partner both have work schedules like that. Add to those work schedules trying to plan a wedding from another state and you have a formula for one thing: needing a wedding planner. Thank you to Michelle Girard Photography for referring Sarah and Chris to us!

Check out some photos from their day from JAG Studios!

Sarah, a pharmacist, and Chris, a first responder, were such a fun couple. They really wanted to include their personalities and professions into the wedding somehow. They did so by including vintage prescription sheets as table numbers and cookie favors that looked like EKG heart monitors and the first aid symbol. They even had a small firefighter axe to cut their cake and a ring pillow made out of a firefighter jacket!
