‘Tis the season for party planning, hopping and hosting. And, although “theming”, decorating and designing your own holiday soiree can be a blast, sometimes you simply need the aid of a pro. There’s no local expert better to turn to for your event coordinating needs than master of his trade, Steven Boyle, of  Current Affairs. As Hawaii’s leading event innovator, Current Affairs is Honolulu’s premiere full-service event planning and production company known for exquisite and impeccable taste.

Founded in 1984, the Hawaii-based company has created thousands of exclusive events for a wide variety of private and corporate clients from all over the world, combining unique entertainment concepts with fabulous design at memorable locations throughout the Hawaiian Islands.

With the holidays on deck it’s no surprise that it’s Boyle’s busy season. And albeit, an overflowing platter of festive fete to-dos, event design is Boyle’s passion so he seamlessly thrives on the bustle and creates consistently stellar events. “The secret is in the smallest of details, in things you might not think make a big impact until presented and that’s where I come in,” says Boyle. “That’s where the true magic happens.”

And, Boyle is very much like a magician as he has an innate ability to bring a client’s vision to life. In fact, he takes personal stock in each and every one of his clients and their respective party dreams. “My job is to set the mood and create the most special moments for my clients and their friends.”

It’s no secret that Boyle has a bit of a love affair with bigger budget events. In fact, notable clients include Magic Johnson, Stevie Wonder, Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick. Boyle’s also planned parties for HBO’s hit show, “The Pacific” along with a handful of Emmy events. Boyle’s star shines bright through his translation of grande scale parties that inevitably allow extraordinary extravagance.

But over-the-top events aren’t Boyle’s only claim to fame. He also plans private estate parties, exclusive sit-down dinners, executive luncheons, launch affairs, birthday parties and bridal showers. There are no limits to Current Affairs capabilities and scope of services. It’s all designing the unexpected! Drawing upon global experience to designing the exotic and elaborate. “Our specialty would be taking an idea and making it a reality. No matter, sometimes, how outlandish we figure out the details on how to make it work,” says Boyle.

Ultimately, Boyle and the talented team of Current Affairs work with undeniable passion all while firmly believing that life is about creating bountiful, memorable and lasting experiences. The combination of innovation and creativity with a “do it right the first time on time – each and every time” is their ethos.  From vision execution to coordination to decor, food and beverage, Steven Boyle is the ultimate event planner for the Aloha state.
