Company Picnic in Central Park!

It was a delight working with my client Colonial Consulting again on their annual company picnic and the upside to this year was that we were actually able to have it in Central Park! Last year we had to make the dreadful decision to have it indoors at their office due to rain. Luckily we couldn’t have asked for better weather this year!

The day started with a pre-party at their office which included sangria and a few yummy snacks.

For the picnic at Central Park we reserved Mineral Springs and had BBQ catered by Virgil’s and custom clown cake pops by Haute So Sweet.

For entertainment we had a clown and face painting by Kiki’s Faces & Balloons and caricature artist, Steve Nyman.

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!
