1st Annual Taste of Travers Celebration!- August 30, 2016 -
Friday Evening our fine team was proud to be part of the 1st Annual Taste of Travers Celebration presented by Prestwick Chase at Saratoga to benefit the Adult and Senior Center, held at the National Museum of Dance. The Travers-themed Gala honored the 2015 Travers Stakes Winner Keen Ice. What. a. blast!!! The fun-filled event featured 2 parties under the same tent – the VIP lounge and the Paddock. Our lead event designer, Michael Panza, created each party to have their own facade yet intermixing them into one lively event! On the Paddock side, rows of red and white striped linens topped with a mixture of red and white lamps and Saratoga Water Bottles filled with beautiful white hydrangeas, hugged the dance-floor.
On the VIP lounge side, guests entered through an exclusive private entrance, were greeted with a welcome drink and were able to enjoy the Keen Ice VIP lounge, special top-shelf tastings and an open bar by William Grant & Sons, E&J Gallo and Empire Merchants. Along with the VIP tables, our cabana lounge was designed reflecting Keen Ice’s silk colors; Green and Yellow. Delicately placed around the VIP party were absolutely gorgeous green and yellow floral ‘boat’ arrangements, provided by The Posie Pedler. Every detail adorned the most important aspect of the VIP party: Keen Ice. Delicious Mini lobster rolls, zucchini fries, mac and cheese and late night turkey club bites kept guests’ mouths watering, thanks to the Old Daley Custom Catering. It’s not a party without the talented Grand Central Station keeping the dance floor full of action all. night. long!
Check out the life-sized horse statue we provided for Heather Bohm-Tallman’s photobooth!
