Friendsgiving | Greensboro NC Corporate Event Planner


When I made the brand shift from Leigh Pearce Weddings to Leigh Pearce Events, it was because of my heart for events like Friendsgiving. Weddings are our soul at LPE, but corporate, social, and non-profit events are our heart.

Last fall, I worked with The Friends of Greensboro Downtown Parks to plan a Friendsgiving Feast in Center City Park and LeBauer Park. The committee and I worked together to create a festive evening with a progressive dinner, fabulous per usual thanks to 1618 On Location, celebrating the 10th anniversary of Center City and the launch of the much awaited, LeBauer Park. The proceeds raised from this event benefited free community programming in these two parks.

If you are interested in partnering with Leigh Pearce Events on your Greensboro, Winston-Salem, or High Point event, please contact us at 336-552-5645 or [email protected].

Pop Up Dinner with 1618 On Location at Summerfield Farms | Greensboro Event Planner

Anytime my dear friend, Nick, owner of 1618 Concepts, calls me about an event I immediately say “Count me in!” No matter the location or details, there is always a guarantee of interesting people, decadent food, and amazing wine. And this pop up dinner was no exception! 1618 partnered with Summerfield Farms and Robert Sinskey Vineyards for an exciting six course dinner showcasing the farm’s grass fed beef and the vineyard’s phenomenal wines.  A dinner that marvelous called for an equally stunning tablescape design. I enhanced the rustic touches of our barn setting (albeit it is no ordinary barn) by adding in mahogany farm tables, industrial metal chairs, bright natural arrangements, and chalkboard runners. Instead of pesky place cards, I lettered everyone’s names at the top of their place settings. Functional and fun! Dave Wilson of Tigermoth Creative was on hand to snap some details and candids for us — I hope you enjoy these sneak peeks as much as I loved designing this event!
