In the hospitality industry, everyone knows the ‘customer is king’. However, this notion has left some employees feeling unappreciated and undervalued for their service. Putting customers first can sometimes make service-based employees feel as if the only ones whose happiness matters are the guests.  One company breaking from this notion is a premier event and wedding venue in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex area, The Bowden Events and Wedding Venue! We are proud to say we recently won a designation of #50 in the Top 100 workplaces in Texas’s Great Places to Work for our employee-first culture. It is our belief that with happy employees, it becomes easier to generate happy guests for group events, weddings, and other functions.

Venues supporting non-profit events are a great way to host various events without breaking the bank. These venues can accommodate a wide range of events from weddings to corporate functions while still providing guests plenty of space and amenities.

There are several compelling reasons to choose a non-profit supporting event center as your next venue, but there's more to the equation than simply location. You should think about the size, flexibility, and if they have any programs in place.

Whether you’re recognizing a milestone anniversary or just want to celebrate your love, your anniversary party should be special and meaningful. Therefore, the theme should be well chosen to represent you as a happy couple, from big decisions to the most minute details. When choosing a theme for your anniversary, it should represent your past (how you met, your wedding day), the present (where you currently are in life like empty nesters, retirees), and the future you have to look forward to together.

It might be suntan season now, but the holiday season is right around the corner. If you’re in charge of planning your company’s holiday party this year, we’ve got you covered. By starting your planning early, you can get the jump on reservations to get the location you want on your preferred dates, not to mention you’ll get first dibs on your favorite vendors.  The best part of booking early is that promotions are usually going on to save money and add that special touch! In fact, check out The Bowden’s special here. Another advantage of early planning is that you have time to come up with creative ideas and a little outside the box. When planning is rushed, it’s hard to be innovative, but when time is on your side, you can take the time to get creative and plan a party to be remembered!
