Whole Lotta Roses

Recently a friend started an event planning business.. ABOUT TIME I say!!! She is super talented and the events are so much fun for all that attend. When I am able to be involved I am thrilled!

But.. Here is MORE info!!! Get in contact with them!!!

Whole Lotta Roses? That’s a funny name for an event planning business”. Yes, we know. Whole Lotta Roses is a tribute to AC/DC and the song Whole Lotta Rosie. We chose that name for two reasons. One - we wanted a name that was creative and would set us apart from other wedding and event planning businesses, something edgy and unexpected. Two - well… honestly, we just love AC/DC. AC/DC has stood the test of time by being themselves and doing what they do best for the last 35 years. That is exactly how we intend to run our business.

Whole Lotta Roses is a Massachusetts based company that was started by two friends who love planning events, have experience with fund-raising and were looking for a business to have fun with. We offer a stress free option for planning a unique and memorable event. At WLR we don’t just plan parties. We create experiences. If you request a carnival theme we want you to feel like you are walking through the gates at the Marshfield Fair. A motorcycle rally…you should feel the energy and excitement of Bike Week in Laconia. Our attention to detail is unmatched. We use themes and images that are important to you. We cater to the ages and interests of the guests and we personalize each event in every way possible.

Besides being edgy and fun, WLR is also a pet friendly business. Between the two of us we currently share our homes with 8 rescued animals. Both of us have spent time volunteering with local shelters. When deciding on how we wanted to run our business we knew that we somehow wanted to incorporate our furry friends. In addition to doing the usual events - birthdays, graduations, weddings, ect., we also do canine parties.  

Whether you are planning a wedding, corporate event, sweet 16 or a birthday party for Fido, Whole Lotta Roses is committed to providing you and your guests an experience that you will not soon forget. We love the challenge of coming up with a theme that is unexpected but still fits the occasion. A theme that celebrates not only the event but also the people. If you want something over the top, an event that will be talked about for years to come...Whole Lotta Roses is the event planner for you. We will Amp up Your Event.

Rock on and party hard. 

Laurie & Nikki

Marine Corp Honor Run 2011 in Boston

Today I went to watch the Annual Marine Corp Honor Run at Carson Beach in Boston. Dave ran it as did my friend Michele. They both did great! It made me log to be on my bike doing my rides as I used to. As soon as it is out of the shop getting it's tune up, I will be back on it riding and doing my head clearing rides with my friend Meliss and now Dave. Ohh.. how I miss those rides.

While I was at the run, I started shooting all of the events before and after AS well as the runners. They were ALL wonderful. Some had such incredible stories that were clear with the symbols on their shirts. Some had lost their children in Iraq, some were waiting for them to come home... SOME were Marines who had come home. Some were actually the men and women who were there and back and actually there and back again. There were parents, children, pets, girlfriends, boyfriends proud friends... SOME were even running in the name of their boyfriends and girlfriends who had served..

I was SO proud of ALL of the runners and their families and those for whom they ran. I took LOTS of pictures.. and I want to share them. I am not sure WHO will EVER see these, but I HOPE those who ran will find them on the web and be able to share them. If someone sees one of themselves.. PLEASE email me and let me know and I will send you the image.

Congratulations to ALL!
