Vendor Spotlight On: Janie Haas Events

Vendor Spotlight is on Janie Haas Events; a full-service event design and planning firm located in North Andover, Ma. Stay tuned for real wedding Wednesday featuring her beautiful work!

1. How did your business come to be?

I had been a part of another event planning company for over 25 years before I moved to the North Shore area. When I first opened my company, I worked as an event consultant offering only a la carte planning services. I soon realized that after being a full scale planner for 25 years prior that I was volunteering too much information!  I quickly went back to the full scale model and I am happy to say that we are soon going to celebrate our 14th year!

2. What are the services you offer?

We offer everything from conception to execution and everything in between.

3. Where are you located and how far will you travel to provide your service?

We are located in North Andover, but we have an office in both Boston and San Juan, Puerto Rico. We will travel anywhere!

4. How far in advance do you recommend clients to book?  

I would suggest booking at least a year out if possible since we limit the number of events that we do each weekend.

5. What is one piece of advice you always give to brides?

Enjoy the planning process as it will evolve as time goes on and you develop a clearer sense of your style, taste and budget. There are some incredibly talented vendors in every category so part of our job and yours is finding YOUR perfect team of vendors.

Vendor Spotlight On: Sayles Livingston Design

Sayles Livingston Design provides advice, vegetation and accompanying décor/staging for any size event from elaborate destination-wedding to informal seminar to cutting-edge product launch. They go anywhere; work with any budget; and, in the process, and do their best to properly steward the environment that supports our work. Their services include frank, detailed consultations as well as full onsite installations.

How did your business come to be?

Sayles is a graduate of Brown University where she studied Horticulture and the Creative Arts. She then went on to receive a master’s degree in Plant Sciences from the University of Rhode Island where her understanding of local sourcing and sustainability grew. This unique combination of artist and trained horticulturalist is special, and it’s what makes Sayles’s designs so impressive (and so relevant) to those of you looking to make a big splash with the least environmental impact.

Sayles Livingston Design began as a garden and cut flower business but has grown into a leading, and much lauded, event and floral design business. Her distinctive creations have been featured in over 30 national magazines and films, and she has won numerous awards, over many years, for her enchanting displays.

Are you a full-service design resource?

Though we specialize in floral design, my team can help you plan your entire event from linen choices to lighting design to the use of other props, furniture, plant material…you name it! We have a wide selection of items available for rent. But, if we don’t have something you need, we will find it for you!

Do you travel anywhere?

Yes. Truly.

How do you choose your flowers? Do you buy your flowers locally?

I personally select all the flowers that my team uses, paying special attention to quality while constantly searching for unusual varieties and colors.

We support local growers by using seasonal flowers and plants whenever possible. Some clients want locally-sourced flowers, and we can certainly make this happen, while others care more about globally-available varieties (e.g. peonies, hydrangea, roses, orchids, etc.), and we can make this happen too!

How does Sayles Livingston Design approach the environmental impacts of the event industry?

Our biggest challenges are energy efficiency, waste minimization, water consumption, procurement of products from like-minded eco-aware companies and communication with other vendors and clients. At Sayles Livingston Design, we are extremely mindful of the potential environmental impacts from our business and are constantly endeavoring to make changes and improvements.
