This gala was a 500-person, supremely elegant, black and white Great Gatsby affair on the grounds of a 23-acre, ocean front, cliff top, estate at sunset! This historic property was opened to the public for the first time in six decades, just for this event! Guests clamored for tickets to be a part of this momentous occasion. Gorgeous dancers in coat and tails with high black heels, beaded flapper outfits and candy girl attire kept guests utterly enthralled, as they sipped martinis beneath a chandelier bedecked, black ,high gloss circular bar. Chic lounge vignettes with stunning white orchid and rose arrangements high overheard, masses of glimmering candles, and giant ostrich feather arrangements created the perfect space for guests to dance and dine beneath the stars. The Art Deco dancefloor was never empty, positively filled with guests throughout the night. This was truly a party to remember, one that we are still hearing about from so many of the lucky guests that were able to attend! We were honored to be asked to produce this historic and truly stunning event.
"YOU made the most fun party of the decade happen! Everybody in our group LOVED it and is still talking about how they danced so much their feet hurt and they all will look back on how this was one of the best parties in their lives! Great band, great feather show, great chandelier martini bar, and great dance floor action. YOU really did it and Merryl, you made so many people so happy! A phenomenal evening with a spirit of joy that can only come when somebody like you steps out there and shows them how to party!"
