Hey everyone, I'm going to admit to you, one and all, that I've had a pretty crazy week. I planned my last official Bar Mitzvah this weekend. It was a wonderful affair, for a beloved client but the time and energy exerted during this last week reminded me why I had given them up. As people often say in a break up - "It's not you...it's me". Well it's true, I put so much of myself into these things that I don't have time for anything else.
A few years ago, we did what I thought would be our last big Halloween party. But as Al Pacino says in the Godfather, “Just when I thought I was out...they pull me back in.” Seriously, this year's theme was just too good to pass up. Given the mess that is this year’s Presidential Election one of our beloved clients suggested we honor it with its own themed Halloween party.
Halloween is upon us. Our first few events are behind us. Everyone is working their fingers to the bone, literally!
As I mentioned in last week's blog, we’re creating two entirely new themes this year, Zombie Prom and Political Hell. Both are large events for over 600 people. That requires a ton of decor, a good deal of it created by my amazing design team Freda and Steve (and my Mom!)
Here’s a little peek at what they have been doing:
Despite Halloween being over, I thought it might be fun to share some photos from our last big Halloween party, which was held on Halloween night. You may recall I blogged about these amazing, thematic Halloween parties which we have created throughout the years. After 7 years of amazing events my client and I decided this was to be our grand finale.
Together, we pulled out all of the stops to make this a Halloween to remember.
