We recently celebrated National Chocolate Chip Day—quite possibly one of the sweetest days of the year. Dreaming of finding the best chocolate chip cookie around got us thinking about tiny desserts to hand out after events. Anything sweet is sure to put a smile on guests’ face and give them a lasting memory.

Macarons Not only are these the cutest little desserts (the colors are so eye-popping), but they also are the perfect size for stuffing in a gift bag. Guests will be delighted with the delicious, whimsical French treats.

Cake pops So, maybe these are a little overused, but we’re still in love with how delicious and cute they are. We liken them to lollipops for adults, making guests feel nostalgic.

Mini cupcakes We just can’t get enough cupcakes in our life. They provide so many different varieties (think maple bacon, Nutella and avocado) And you can definitely incorporate chocolate chips into any flavor to celebrate today’s holiday.

Cheesecake bites A classic favorite made to be perfectly portioned. No need to feel guilty or extra full  with these indulgent treats.  

Mini hand pies Truly old-school, these Southern favorites will surprise and delight guests. There are a plethora of options—including savory pies—to please guests.

Doughnut holes These desserts are sure to delight. Found at state fairs and breakfast tables alike, these fried and doughy desserts are simple and delicious. 

Over the years, any corporate event planner can admit to spending countless hours researching the perfect venue or vendors for their gatherings. After attending or hosting hundreds of events, New York-based Daphne Hoppenot was no stranger to this research and was frustrated by its repetitive nature. However, it was planning her wedding in 2018 that pushed her to realize the lack of resources in the corporate events market compared to the wedding industry, and set out to see if other meetings and events professionals were struggling with the same problem.  

 

Freelancing has become a new ball game since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, as many companies cannot afford to keep full-time positions, but still need those tasks completed. Although many more professionals have had to join the freelancing community since March, Tracy Judge had the passion for the freelancing community two years ago–long before the pandemic hit–and founded her company Soundings Connect in order to directly connect meetings and events industry freelancers with customers. 

 

The 18-story, 303-room Hyatt Regency Frisco-Dallas is now open for business. Located within Frisco’s Stonebriar Centre, the hotel includes a 27,500-square-foot conference center with Regency and Junior ballrooms and additional breakout spaces, most with floor-to-ceiling windows for natural light.
