In our industry, it’s impossible to execute an incredible event without the help of other dynamic vendors. In our Vendor Features, we learn more about the people who we love to work with event after event, and year after year. Next up is Dan Caplan, Event Designer and Planner at Arrangements Unlimited.
Dan Caplan has been in the events industry for most of his life, and joined Arrangements Unlimited 15 years ago. We most often cross paths with Dan at numerous elaborate Bar/Bat Mitzvahs throughout each year. His excellence in logo creation, custom design, and overall creative thinking is evident in every event that he works on.
Arrangements Unlimited, co-owned by Lois Caplan and Lynne Brownstein, has been styling custom events for 44 years. Whether it’s a small gathering, corporate event, wedding, Mitzvah, or birthday, the Arrangements Unlimited team brings years of passion and experience to making each celebration one of a kind.
