Rain or Shine!

I have been working with my corporate client for the past few months, planning their 1st Annual Central Park Picnic, and as luck would have it the weather had a different idea for our fun-filled day. The forecast showed a 60% chance of rain with scattered thunderstorms starting at noon and lasting throughout the afternoon. Unfortunately we had to make the dreadful decision to have the picnic indoors. Luckily we had a contingency plan in place (their office) and although it was a bit of a disappointment not to be outside everyone had a fantastic time!

The BBQ from Virgil’s was absolutely delicious and the serving staff did an excellent job making sure everyone was taken care of.

For kids entertainment we hired Kiki’s Face Painting & Balloons for the kids to have their faces painted and be amused by a clown who did a magic show and made balloons into a variety of shapes. The kids absolutely LOVED them and the parents were extremely happy that their children were being occupied with fun activities.

We also hired Steven Nyman, a very talented caricature artist who was a HUGE hit with all of the employees. His artistic ability is utterly remarkable!

West Point Wedding!

My first military wedding was a success! The West Point Military Academy campus is set in Hudson Valley of New York and is surrounded by gorgeous scenery and ideal for a picture perfect wedding. The bride and groom couldn’t have been happier!

Here is sneak of the day and once I get pictures from the wedding photographer, Lina Jang, I will post a few of those!

A Survival Kit for the Media!

Last night’s open house party for my client, CounterPoint Strategies, was spectacular! Catering was by Creative Concepts and an ipod playlist was created by the CounterPoint staff.

My client also had the idea to put together this “survival” kit for their guests. What a clever idea!

A Holiday-ish Party!

The Channel V Media “holiday-ish” party was a success! Drinks were free-flowing and everyone loved the CVM mulled wine which was homebrewed by owner and partner, Gretel Going.

The DJ was rock’n, the samosas and spring rolls from Curry Dream were a hit, and the cookies from Insomnia were to die for!
