The Right Branding

Branding Yourself Right

LimeLight Expressions is your Creative Design Firm.

We help both small and large businesses with their branding from identify packages (logos, flyers, brochures, ads and website) to event planning.

How do we help businesses?

It is simple! Some smaller businesses do not have their own internal marketing department or can not hire a full-time marketing person. That’s where we step in!

We have a staff that can start your business on the right foot or help you grow with re-branding including logo design, flyers, ads, brochures, invitations, and even website design at an affordable price with a quality product and service.

We also help larger corporations when they are too busy with other projects or need a different perspective.

How do branding and events go hand in hand?

Most companies when launching (grand opening), throughout the year, during holidays, etc., have customer, client and employee events. All of this is branding!

Whether it is a corporate event that you need a conference logo designed and branded or trying to get your brand name in the public eye, we have you covered.

We are here to help you with all your creative needs from design to planning.

Some of our clients include: Meridian Clinical Research, Woodmen of the World, First National Bank of Omaha, Kiewit Corporation, Vickie Lea Designs, Image Entertainment, Muscular Dystrophy Association, Omaha Home for the Boys, Red Basket and more!

A Twist on St. Patty’s Day Events

Our friends at the Prevention Coalition wanted us to get the word out about other fun options for St. Patrick’s Day. No matter your choice, please be safe and make wonderful memories!

Enjoying St. Patrick’s Day in Different Ways

Contrary to popular belief, not everyone wants to spend St. Patrick’s Day chugging booze ‘til they drop. Some people may be faced with overcoming addiction, while others have small children and would rather spend the day doing family-oriented activities. Even though it may seem like celebrating the Irish holiday without liquor is impossible, it can be done! Here are a few ways you can celebrate St. Patrick’s Day minus the alcohol –and potential hangover!

Patrick’s Day Events

Sober St. Patrick’s Day is a non-profit organization that was founded by award-winning theatre producer WIlliam Spencer Reilly, after he almost lost a family member to addiction in 2004. This family-friendly event comprises of acts from world class musicians, singers and dancers who all gather to celebrate Irish culture. Each year Sober St. Patrick’s Day is held on parade day in New York City, though it is growing vastly across the world. Philadelphia, Richmond, VA and even Dublin have all joined in on the fun by hosting Sober St. Patrick’s Day events. If you live in a city that has not yet caught onto this rapidly growing trend, fret not! You can be the one to organize your city’s very first Sober St. Patrick’s Day event! For a nominal licensing fee you will receive permission to use the Sober St. Patrick’s Day name and you will be provided support to plan, market and fund the event! Why not take part in a new St. Patrick’s Day tradition that will provide a fun, healthy and safe environment for everyone involved?

Plan an Irish-themed dinner party

Nothing honors the tradition of the Irish more than a good, home-cooked meal. When it comes to traditional Irish food, many people confuse it with Irish-American dishes i.e. corned beef and cabbage. Get into the true spirit of the holiday by researching food that those native to Ireland actually enjoy indulging in and learn how to prepare it! A quick online search will steer you in the right direction for any recipes you may need. Dishes like lamb stew (Irish stew) and soda bread are a few old-fashioned favorites for the Irish. Allow yourself plenty of time to plan for your dinner party, and be sure to do a test run on all the foods you will be serving. You will thank yourself for this step should any dishes not turn out as planned! Make your home festive by decorating with a few St. Patrick’s Day-themed pieces. After dinner, get the kids and adults together to participate in a few Irish games! The best thing about hosting a dinner party in lieu of St. Patrick’s Day is that it can easily become a family tradition. Each year have the party at your home or assign a different friend or family member to host at their place.

Be of service

Even though you are opting to not spend your St. Patrick’s Day drinking, chances are you have a few friends that are looking forward to having an all day boozefest. Assure that your friends are drinking responsibly by offering to be their designated driver. By serving as a safe ride you will be given peace of mind knowing that your loved ones are out of harm’s way and in return, they will be grateful that you are concerned about their safety. Signing yourself up to be the designated driver for your friends is a very noble deed that is an extremely selfless way to spend St. Patrick’s Day.

In the past, you may have felt excluded in the St. Patrick’s Day festivities because of your choice to stay sober. Fortunately, you can start new traditions that are true to your values and begin to enjoy the day just as much as others!

Best Tips for Organizing Your Dream Wedding

1. Set a Budget: Everyone has a budget and this will help determine all the other aspects of your wedding.

2. Guest List: Before choosing a venue, you need to know approximately how many people you wish to invite to your wedding. Make sure to include both the bride and groom’s family wishes.

3. Choose a Wedding Date: The wedding date can depend a lot on the wedding venue and whether it’s a destination wedding or a wedding in town.

4. Choose the Ceremony and Reception Venue: Most venues get booked months (if not years) in advance.  Make sure your venue can accommodate your guest list. If your reception is at a different location than the ceremony, you need to coordinate the time so that the venue is available after the ceremony.

Planning your wedding as early as possible will allow you to get the items (especially the venues) that you want.  It can also allow you to receive great discounts.

We Are Back with Themed Events!

It’s been a while since we blogged and we need to do a better job in 2016. We would like to make this blog about helpful event tips and the life of an event planner.

As you may or may not know, Kimmylea is the owner of LimeLight Expressions and she is a single mother of 4 year-old twins. Juggling twins, a company and daily tasks are not always easy and we are here to share experiences with you.

For our first blog back, we’d like to discuss, ‘Themed Events’. Did you know that a theme is included in any event or wedding, even if it’s just a color. We can also take your specific theme in mind and make your vision come true.

We had a bride come to us wanting a Dr. Who themed wedding. Her and her finance just love Dr. Who. We themed everything from their custom invitations (created and designed by us) to their reception and made it into a Dr. Who wonderland. What do you think of themed events and weddings? Give us your feedback.

Let us put you in the LimeLight for your event or wedding and support a locally, family owned company.
