Plan Your Next Corporate Event at the Blackbird Hangar

Are you tired of the same old hotel events? Looking for something more exciting? Say no more, we’ve got you covered!

The Blackbird Hangar at the Scottsdale Airport is the perfect place for you to plan your next corporate event. Why? Well, for starters, it’s a whopping 19,200 sq. ft. inside and 16,000 sq. ft. outside, which frees your imagination to host any kind of event you want.

What else does the Blackbird Hangar have going for it? Let’s find out.

Why the Blackbird Hangar?

The venue is suited to host large corporate conferences, awards banquets, movie screenings, celebrity events, fundraisers, galas, and a lot more. Because of its versatility, the Blackbird is one of the most dynamic event spaces in our catalog.

The Blackbird Hangar has also had quite a memorable life, hosting the likes of NFL legend Kurt Warner and Arizona Coyote’s Shane Doan. Not to mention, the venue can house a lovely soundstage with brilliant acoustics, playing host to bands like Train, Cheap Trick, and Dierks Bentley.

The venue is located just a 20-minutes ride away from Sky Harbor and the Phoenix Convention Center and very close to Downtown Scottsdale. Since it’s within the Scottsdale Executive Airport, you can get a great view of jets taking off and landing.

Fun in the Times of Corona

Let’s get to the brass tacks. With COVID-19 in the air, now is not the best time for closed-door events. And this is precisely why the Blackbird Hangar makes for such a great venue in these times.

The spacious interior of the hangar bleeds out into fresh open air, separated only by hangar doors measuring 20’ high to 100’ wide. This makes it perfect for more than adequate social distancing if you’re planning a small-to-medium corporate event.

At Scottsdale Private Event Venues, we take extra caution to ensure that the setting, decoration, and planning of the event is perfectly catered to accommodate the changing scenario. We ensure a failsafe method of event management that makes sure there is social distancing at your corporate event.

This means that you don’t have to avoid having a great time until the pandemic blows over. With a spacious and well-equipped venue like Blackbird Hangar, you won’t have to fear anything. Just make sure to wear masks and keep a distance from others, and you’re good to go!

Wedding dishes from other cultures

Exotic Wedding Dishes

Weddings are all about happiness and sharing in the love and joy of two people committed to each other. The perfect wedding is a blend of beautiful colors, happy people, and accompanying music. But it is hard to be happy and stay happy on an empty stomach. Therefore most weddings have elaborate plans on how to feed their reception party. 

You can never go wrong with a mix of meat and poultry, fresh salads, and a nice selection of wines and liquor. Wedding food has a bad reputation for being far too bland, so it’s a good idea to spice up your wedding menu with a few exotic dishes.

Understand that they might not all be suitable for your chosen dining method. Whether you have gone with a sit-down setting, buffet or serving stations, it can have an important impact on what you choose to serve your guests.


A common staple in Italian weddings, it is composed of thick bread slices. The slices are grilled and topped with tomatoes or herbs. They are usually served as snacks as either starters or complimentary dishes at cocktail style wedding parties.


Another part of Italian cuisine, Ravioli is a dumpling/pasta with a filling dipped in sauce. The filling is usually cheese, chicken or vegetables. The traditional shape of these dumplings is square, though other shapes can be seen as well. These dumplings can be served alone as well as dipped in a thick creamy sauce.

Achiote-Marinated Grilled Chicken

A tasty main course from Mexico, this tasty grilled chicken can be served to your guests with a variety of salad options, dipping sauces, roast potatoes or even boiled mushrooms. You can spice up the accompaniments of this spicy food item however you want.

Shredded Beef Enchiladas

If you and your wedding guests crave red meat, you can go with this beefy option. They usually go well with wheat or corn tortilla, or you can simply eat it raw. It is another great Mexican dish to serve your wedding guests.

Hot Berry Tarts 

For a cool dessert option, we will go back to Italian cuisine. These traditional desserts combine the two tasty worlds of pastry making and fresh fruit into small little tarts. These tasty delights will definitely let your guests taste the sweet happiness and joy of your wedding.

Mexican Wedding Cakes

Though they already have enough credibility in the name, their taste and the ability to melt in your mouth makes them a great choice for wedding desserts. They also go by many other names, Mexican wedding cookies, Russian tea cakes, and even Italian butternuts.

These are not just different names; every variety of this dessert has its own nuances that make it a bit different than others. All of them can delight your wedding guests.

Weddings are where people come together. They can also be an event where a lot of good tastes come together. Choosing the right food can be just as crucial as choosing the right venue. And good food can be what makes your guests enjoy the event as much as you do.

7 Wedding Photography Ideas You Don’t Want to Miss

The day of your wedding will end up passing by way faster than you’ve ever imagined. It’s hard to accept that a day you spent months preparing for lasts only for a few hours. After that, the only thing left is the memory of it. And what’s an easier way to make memories last than photos?

We’re here to give you some wedding photography ideas to help you remember your big day as accurately as possible. Get a professional photographer and make a shot list for them to know who and what they have to cover.

1.     Take Photos of the Invites

You know a wedding is final when the invites finally start to go out. This is why you should include them in your wedding album.  Layout all the cards on a nice background and make sure you get all the details that are printed on.

2.     Take Photos of the Rings

If wedding invites finalize your wedding, then wedding rings really set the wedding in stone-literally. Make sure you get clear, close-up shots of both yours and your loved one’s wedding ring.

3.     Take Photos of the Preps

A wedding takes a village to pull off. You need to ensure all the people involved in your wedding get the representation they deserve by covering them while they’re in action. Whether it is your makeup crew or the family members that help you adjust your train, have them all in the photos.

4.     Get a Photo of the Dress

Get aesthetic photos of the dress hanging in your dressing room. You’ll obviously get photos of yourself in it, but why not also include the dress in its full form and glory?

5.     Take Photos While Exchanging Vows

Exchanging vows can often be emotional, not just for the couple getting married, but the people in the audience. You shouldn’t only get photos of the people getting married, but the reactions of the people who are listening as well. It’s a great way to remember the sentiments that everyone was going through.

6.     Take Photos of the Cake

A cake is often customized to represent your relationship. It might have decorations or little figurines of the two of you and this is why it becomes extremely important to capture a photo of it before it’s gone.

It’s also a good idea to take photos of the seating and all the other decorations and signs that have been set up throughout the venue, to get a good feel of how the event was overall.

7.     Take Photos of the First Look

It’s always emotional when the couple sees each other for the first time that day. Taking photos of that moment is a wedding essential. However, what some people don’t cover are the seconds right before they see each other. This gives you a perspective into how excited the couple is to see each other again and the nervousness they feel.


Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life. It’s easier than you think to forget to take the right photos when you’re busy worrying about everything else. Making a list beforehand should help you stay on top of things.

How to Plan the Best Engagement Party

Planning the Best Engagement Parties –Steps To Help You Through It

If you have already been asked out and your ring finger is shining with a pretty sparkler on it, it is time you kick off your engagement preps to later plan for the wedding.

The best part about engagement parties is that everyone close to the couple is so excited for the event that anyone barely pays attention to how involved they might be throughout.

Jokes apart; here are nine mystic steps you should take on to be able to pull off an engagement party that you and everyone around you cherish forever.

1.      Finalize the Host

Typically, it is the bride’s parents who host the engagement party. However, there is no hard-and-fast rule for that.  Today’s pre-nuptial and nuptial events are more of a collaborative approach of both the bride and groom’s families.

Talk it out with your partner. If both of you agree to make it a collaborative approach, you can divide the costs accordingly and have equal say in choosing everything for the event like the décor, food, etc.

If you guys decide to go how it typically is, sit with your family and discuss the budget. Begin planning with the help of your parents, siblings, and anyone else whose say you think is important or is contributing financially.

2.      Choose the Event Date

If you have budget constraints, it is better to wait for the off-peak season when vendors offer lower prices for everything. During peak season, prices are sky-high because of high demand.

Regardless of whether you have budget constra8inits or not, make it a point to discuss with your partner and both your families before finalizing the date of your engagement party.

3.      Prepare a Guest List

Once the hosting part and event date is decided, move on to preparing the guest list. Regardless of who hosts the party, you have to allow a certain number of guests from the groom’s side too. Therefore, it is better if both of you sit together and jot down a tentative list of people you want to invite. Calculate the total number of guests with a buffer of about 5-10 guests so that you don’t fall short of chairs or food and end up in embarrassing situations.

4.      Decide on the Menu

There are several factors that you should consider when deciding on your engagement party’s menu. These include the budget, your preferences and the needs of your guests, time and season of the event, the theme, etc.

As much as you can, try to choose a menu that is all-inclusive; meaning everyone regardless of their eating habits or dietary preferences should have something to eat if not much.

Oh, and don’t forget to design your dresses and engagement invites side by side!

If all of the above seems too much to take care of, hire the experts at Scottsdale Hangar Parties. Sit back, relax, and make memories while the experts do their job.

How to Pull off a Corporate Event on Short Notice?

How to Pull off a Corporate Event on Short Notice?

Completing any task on short notice gets challenging, and organizing a full-fledged corporate event is no different. Don’t panic and give up altogether if you are facing an emergency like this. Even with a short lead time, you can pull off a successful corporate event, given that you play your cards right.

Let’s see some tricks and measures that you can employ to hold a successful corporate event on short notice.

Invites Should Be Sent Out at the Earliest

When an event is held on short notice, organizers face the issue of low attendance. This issue usually occurs because event invitations are not managed in the right manner. You need to be proactive with event invites when the window between sending invites and the actual event day is small. There are multiple things that you can do to expedite this process.

  • Use all mediums to send out the invitations. Use emails, Whatsapp, Facebook, calls, SMS, express mail to make sure you can fully reach out to the outside guests. For your team, you won’t have to put in that much effort.
  • You can also assign a person or a group to invite all those guests that matter the most personally. They can also put across the reasons for holding the event on such short notice more eloquently.

Try to Avoid Working with Too Many Contractors

When you are organizing an event with a regular lead time, you can work with a range of contractors taking care of different segments of the event. However, you don’t get this luxury when you are treading a tight deadline. Working with too many contractors when you don’t have much time makes for many last-minute unpleasant scenarios.

Instead, pick a contractor that can take care of all aspects of event management. When you work with a company that arranges the venue, catering, audio/video equipment, and transport, half of your work is sorted out on its own. You can streamline your event organizing work in the available time when you are just corresponding with a single person for everything.

Make it Interesting

If you want to make your event success with short lead time in hand, then you need to incentivize people to attend it. Add a specific theme to your event or give it some uniqueness that can be realized without putting in any extra time. For instance, you can have your event at a hangar venue specially designed for corporate and incentive events.

If you are working with a seasoned event company like Scottsdale Hanger Parties, then chances of the success of an event that’s being held on a short notice increase manifold. If you are looking to organize any type of corporate event in and around Scottsdale, get in touch with them.

How to Plan and Hold a Successful Trade Event

Holding a Successful Trade Event and the Role of Venue and Caterer

For businesses that are dealing in a particular range of products, it is really important to brandish them appropriately to reach out to new markets and make new business partners. Holding a trade event and show is a great way to market your product and brand. However, planning and holding such an event is no mean task. So many things go in holding even a small-scale trade event that businesses often refrain from going for it altogether.

However, some tricks and measures can help you in pulling off this difficult task. Here, we are going to discuss how your venue selection and the caterer and entertainment partner can help you in organizing a successful trade event.

Choosing a Venue that Is Big and Also Inexpensive

No matter how small a trade show is going to be, it will need a spacious venue. So, don’t hastily lock in any venue just because you are getting it on the cheap. Remember that you are going to showcase your products to prospective buyers. You may have to create multiple stalls that can easily accommodate the products and staffers who are attending the visitors.

Similarly, you need to leave a lot of walking space in the venue so the visitors can easily roam around. Setting up a sitting area for visitors is also important. You can see that arranging all these things under one roof require quite some space. The exhibition centers and auditoriums can provide you such spaces, but they are quite expensive and may throw your entire budget off balance.

A hangar comes as a viable venue option in this context. They are spacious, available at reasonable fees, and also let you maintain a corporate outlook of the event. You can easily set up multiple stalls and leave a lot of walking and sitting space in hangar venues.

Pretty up Your Trade Event with Food and Beverages

People are coming to your event. They are roaming around, engaging with your staff to find out more about the displayed products. Similarly, your staff is at its toes and attending everyone and answering each and every query. All this activity can tire anyone out. So, serving food and beverages at the event is your ethical responsibility. Setting a buffet or sandwich kiosk and a beverage dispenser is definitely going to inject some energy into your trade event.

In order to streamline this arrangement, try to work with a single contractor that can arrange a venue for your trade show and can also take care of its food and beverage supply.

Don’t Miss the AV Part

A trade show that is taking place in ambient noise has a different feel to it than a similar event being held with beautiful music playing in the background. Similarly, an interactive video being played on large screens and projectors can also make the overall event more interesting for participants.

Scottsdale Private Event Venues can help you in organizing a successful trade event. From the venue to catering and audio/video, they will take care of every important aspect of event management for you.

Event With an Aviation Theme

How You Can Host An Event With An Aviation Theme

It is always nice to host an event with a certain twist to it, isn’t it? Among the timelessly glamorous themes, the golden age of the aviation industry always comes at the forefront. It provides the perfect backdrop for any kind of formal event that is taking place. Aviation fanatics and travelers alike love an aviation-themed gala, corporate event or even a wedding. It provides that perfect photogenic evening for people all around and an unforgettable experience. If you are looking to throw your own aviation themed-party, here are some tips that we think you could really use to make it a big hit.


Find an Airplane Hangar

Of course, if you are planning to host an event in an airplane hangar, you need to find one first, right? As odd as it may seem, the unconventional aspect of an airplane hangar is what makes it the perfect venue. If you are hosting a big event, there is nothing better than to have an airplane hangar. Just think about it. A private airplane hangar in Scottsdale has a lot of square footage at your disposal and the height of the ceiling is pretty high. Ideally, the private airplane hangar will have a few private jets parked on the tarmac nearby. The lights should be plentiful so that the ambiance is set as it is complimented by the private jets. If the kind of occasion calls for it, there are some venues in Scottsdale that even allow you to park a small jet within the hangar while the event takes place. At Venues of North Scottsdale, we know we certainly do. Oh and we also provide you access to some of the best airplane hangars in the region.

Select a Time Period

We’re not talking about the schedule of the event itself, we’re talking about the time period from aviation history. If you’re hosting an aviation themed party in Scottsdale, you need somewhat of a specific theme, right? You could go for the golden age from the 1918 to 1939 or you could go completely modern. The choice is all yours. You can even go for a progressive theme that dates from the golden age to the modern day aviation. Selecting a theme helps a lot while planning the event for the aviation themed party that you’ll be hosting in a private hangar.

Transform the Space

The ceiling touching soaring heights and wide open space allows you to do a lot with the space. Get creative with the space and go crazy. Transform it according to your vision of the event so that all your guests are mesmerized by the grand affair that your aviation themed party is.

Hire the Right Band

An aviation themed party without live music would be a dull affair. There is nothing better to bring a party to life than with the right musical backdrop. If course finding the likes of Sinatra himself is not an option but you’d do well to find someone that can play “Fly Me to the Moon” even half as good as the legend did. That’ll be enough.

If You Need Any Assistance

You know, if you need any assistance with your aviation themed party in Scottsdale, you have the best possible option with Venues of North Scottsdale. We offer you a whole host of unique event venues and exciting experiences. The best food and staff will be able to deliver you the most amazing party you’ve ever had.

  • Provide Tastings


No matter how perfect the food pictures and their descriptions are, your safe bet is always to ask your potential caterer to provide tastings of their food.

If the caterer is not willing to provide tasting, avoid taking the risk and consider other caterers who are willing to conduct a food-tasting session before the event. This way, you will be able to figure out if the food has lived up to your expectations or not. Trust us, going through the tasting session beforehand can save you from a lot of disappointment and embarrassment in the near future.

The caterers will consider changing the menu taking into account your specific dietary, budget, and taste. For instance, if you are a vegetarian, the caterer will make sure that the menu is comprised of all the veggie-based dishes. So, whenever you get in touch with a catering service, do ask them if they assist special menu requirements.
