Halloween Bash

Once guests stepped on the walkway entrance, they knew they were in for a Spooktacular evening.  On the lawn was a giant BOO sign made from lights and surrounding the front door was a massive black, silver, and purple balloon installation.  The white home was accented with purple uplighting. A zombie character sitting on a throne chair scared guests as they walked in, and a witch character greeted them with signature swirly champagne drinks.  Throughout the first floor of the house were specific decorated areas.  The first area was a ominous large black tree constructed out of pool float sticks, a very scary animatronic character, and copious amounts of pumpkins, candles, and florals.  All the way up the glass staircase were paper bats.

The home’s dining room area was decorated with a wooden table and a complete setup of a “dead” dinner party.  Here, the little details mattered with the skeleton bowls and lots of cobwebs in addition to the skeletons and candles. The living area’s couches were adorned with skeletons in varying positions and candelabras, flower arrangements and of course cobwebs were strewn throughout. The DJ and dance floor area had witches’ hats hanging from the ceiling, in addition to more scary decorations. The fortune teller was a great part of the entertainment, and she enjoyed a line of people waiting to hear their futures all night long.

The backyard had multiple areas of interest including the bats hanging from the ceiling, twenty or so skeletons in various positions throughout the yard, and a spooky boat sitting in the pool. The flower arrangements were unbelievably gorgeous with their Halloween hues of orange, purple, red and black flowers, black feathers, cobwebs, and candles.  On the patio, guests enjoyed the taco bar selections, which was cleverly placed inside a coffin.  And of course, they imbibed heavily from the selections at the outdoor bar.

The piece de resistance of the event was 6-foot skeleton charcuterie board, which had a wide selection of meats, cheeses, fruits, crackers, and olives. This was placed on the massive kitchen island.  Guests thoroughly enjoyed partaking from this most interesting spread. The tombstones and the very large, beautiful centerpiece were perfect additions.

To satiate their sweet tooth, various candies and deadly cupcakes were placed in black shelving. One the most talked about features, was the shiny, sparkly black and purple candied apples.

The existing wine room was transformed into a ‘mad’ scientist’s laboratory, where beakers, test tubes, skulls, bones, and all sorts of décor adorned the space and shelves.  The scientist character asked guests if they needed blood from the alcohol infused bags or a perhaps a shot of courage from alcohol infused syringes.

The party was fun, unique, and imaginative and had guests entertained well into the wee hours of the morning.  It was truly “Spooktacular”!

Jessica’s Totally Rad 50th

Jessica’s Totally Rad 50th

For those old enough to remember, the ’80s was a wild and crazy time. So when Jessica Rossman decided to celebrate her milestone 50th birthday, she harkened back to her formative years for a blowout bash that recalled the neon decade in all its glory.

Upon entering the venue, the more than 250 guests posed for photos in front of a wall of Andy Warhol-like portraits of Rossman, and sampled ceviche offered by a a mermaid in a bathtub, recalling the 1984 hit movie, Splash. Artist Hanh Tran created an interactive painting of Rossman with a bottle of champagne and invited guests to paint the bubbles. A custom-built wall in the shape of a Rubik’s Cube overflowed with such 1980s candy treats as Nerds, Pop Rocks, Dots, Zotz, Push Pops, and Cracker Jacks available for the taking.

A multi-tiered cake, created by For Heaven’s Cake, was decorated with such sugar spun 1980s favorites as the MTV logo, Converse All-Stars tennis shoes, a boom box and the No Duh slogan. Neon-colored slinkies dangled from the ceiling and two Ms. Pac Man machines were popular as guests vied to tally the highest score.

The popular cover band The Space Rockers performed ’80s hits on one stage before the main attraction — the ’80s New Wave band A Flock of Seagulls — took to another stage and performed their greatest hits, including “I Ran (Far Away),” “Space Age Love Song,” “Wishing (If I Had a Photograph of You),” and “The More You Live, The More You Love” in a one-hour set that had those on the dance floor rocking out. (The band recently launched a “Lost ’80s Live” tour.)

Mike’s 60th Birthday Party

Mike’s 60th Birthday

Mike’s 60th Birthday was a simple yet gorgeous evening fit for a man of stature. The gold and black color scheme was seen throughout the event. Held at Fire Station 3 in the Washington Heights, the event was held in three stages. The cocktail reception took place outside under a canopy of edison bulbs hung from the makeshift ceiling. The guests took photos in front of the massive step and repeat banner. Guests where then escorted upstairs for a five course dinner with entertainment provided by the stunning vocals of Lena Hall (a talent from New York City). The birthday boy’s cake was a 3-D version of his favorite wine bottle. Guests then went downstairs for a party highlighted by the 80’s group the Spazmatics. Chocolate bon bons, cigars and an excessive about of Cristal get the guests parting late into the night.

Jeffs Outlaw 50th

Jeff’s Outlaw Country 50th

Jeff’s Outlaw Country 50th Birthday Party took place on November 16, 2013 at the Bayou City Music Center in Houston. The celebration was a fabulous event complete with star-studded performances by Texas country music legends Robert Earl Keen and David Allen Coe. The modern outlaw country decor, delicious southern home-style cooking, free flowing booze, popcorn bars, mechanical bulls and thoughtful guest takeaways were just icing on the cake (which was also very cool). The birthday boy and two hundred and fifty of his friends and family thoroughly enjoyed the raucous evening that some would say should have been OUTLAWED!
