Popular Event Planning Company Moving Across the Street


Creative Parties Ltd., the popular event planning and wedding invitation store in the green and blue house on Woodmont Avenue, is moving across the street next week to avoid potential redevelopment. First reported by blogger Robert Dyer @ Bethesda Row, Creative Parties Ltd. owner and President Tracy Bloom Schwartz confirmed the crew anticipates making the short move to the first floor of the Landow Building (4822 St Elmo Ave.) a week from today. Bloom Schwartz has been in the standalone house at 8011 Woodmont Ave. for 16 years. The company started on Auburn Avenue for 10 years before that. "We are excited about it. We've enjoyed being in Bethesda because it still, unlike so many other areas, has not lost some of the value of shopping local," Bloom Schwartz said. "So we feel very at home in a very supportive community and our clients know us for being here." Creative plans weddings, corporate events, bar and bat mitzvahs and provides invitations and other products for social events. Bloom Schwartz said the new location will have less space, but not by much. The house became a landmark of sorts on Woodmont Avenue thanks to its colorful painting job, windows and chimney among the high-rise developments and parking garages in Woodmont Triangle. Instead of signing another five-year lease, Bloom Schwartz decided to move to a more steady location. The 8011 Woodmont Ave. property was part of a failed plan by developer JBG Cos. and Montgomery County to put a new 2nd District Police Station on the bottom of a high-rise apartment. JBG is going ahead with a revised plan to develop the property just south of it into an apartment and it's possible the Creative Parties site could be revisited by another developer.
