Kick up your boots with one of Dallas/Fort Worth’s premier event venues. In celebration of Circle R Ranch’s 45th anniversary, the property’s team of industry experts are here to share their secrets to planning a true Texas event. Leave those big city worries behind and get ready to create an awesome event as big as the Lone Star State.
Step One: Select an Authentic Venue
You could have your Texas event in a ballroom, but with an authentic venue, you bring to life all Texas has to offer and create unforgettable memories for your guests to rave about. Find a place that captures the rolling hills of San Antonio, the wide plains of Dallas, the striking beauty of Marble Falls, and the quaint calm of livestock all in one. You need a place where folks greet you with a “Howdy!” and send you home with “Happy Trails!” You need a place where the people, the buildings and the food all radiate Genuine Texas Hospitality.
Step Two: Menu Options that Create an Experience
Welcome to the land of barbecue - a delight that is never as good as it is in Texas! Whether you go with traditional or more upscale, choose a menu that creates an experience for your guests.
Imagine walking up to a grill and having a steak prepared exactly to your preference and then seared with your logo on a custom-forged brand! The unique branding will amaze your guests; they’ll surely sneak a photo to share back home. Better yet, send them home with their very own logo branding iron!
The catering team you select can make or break your event. Select a team with a proven history of astonishing performance and high-quality product selection. And be sure to schedule a tasting prior to booking your event!
Step Three: Trusted Entertainment to Steal the Show
The entertainment for your event needs to create the right atmosphere. If you have found that authentic venue that turns even your food into an unforgettable experience, then you know just the experts to line up perfect entertainment with the right Texas flair.
The right venue will give you confidence in their ability to take care of all the details; no lost bands or forgotten linens. That authentic venue can get you connected with cowboys in true 1800s attire, photograph your best side as you saddle up a Texas longhorn, or even throw a custom rodeo in your honor. In addition to choosing a country western band that will get your guests on the dance floor, make their night with line dance and roping instructors that will give them a new skill to brag about back home. The right entertainment will keep your guests dazzled past that one of a kind Lone Star sunset.
Step Four: Rustic Décor and Unique Gifts
What better place to look for decor inspiration than the city where you’re hosting your event? Local floral-inspired arrangements capture the natural look of the area. Enchant your guests by bringing the outside in and don’t forget to take advantage of branding opportunities. Accent the rustic elements of your venue with lighting and custom gobos. A fun take-away will help your guests remember their one of a kind Texas event. Go simple with a Texas flag bandana or more extravagant with custom fitted cowboy hats or the perfect pair of cowboy boots. Either way your guests go home with a little piece of Texas.
