70th Birthday Party

70th Birthday Cake

Though our emphasis is on Corporate Events, occasionally there will be a client who requests a social event I just can’t refuse!

In February of 2014, a client asked me to find the ultimate location for his brother’s surprise birthday party. The challenge: even though he and his family are Montreal-based, his brother has seen it all and done it all, and is not easily surprised. Somehow, with the work of his brother’s wife and my client’s wife, we succeeded on all levels.

I took them immediately to the Weather Room at Top of the Rock, and they were wowed by the views, the terrace, and the crystal wall. I brought in Paul Tsang-Diaz of Spina Florals, and we transformed the entry section into a comfy lounge area, with white sofas and sumptuous fur throws and pillows. I hired Shintaro Okamoto to create a vodka ice luge for the central bar, and an ice sculpture for each terrace: a bull and a bear. I brought in PSAV to build a stage and link the audio for the band (Element Music), the DJ from Paris and a special guest performer who sang “Mustang Sally,” and brought the house down. PSAV also brought a projector for a slide show of the birthday boy’s life, which alternated with photos by Lorenzo Bevilacqua of the party in progress. I created a custom label for Pol Roger champagne splits and purchased champagne truffles to create gift bags, and coordinated shuttles from the Four Seasons and Dream Hotels. The guest tables were covered in a black and white chevron pattern tablecloths and adorned with black orchid arrangements and black votive holders.

I also planned a 50th birthday party in 2013 at New York Vintners in their wine cellar. The birthday boy PlatePlateknew the location, worked with me and sommelier Georgi Vladimirov on the wines and Chef Ryan Smith on the menu, but I surprised him with flowers from our favorite floral designer, Atsuko Okano from Flowers Rock, as well as a birthday cake from Duane Park Patisserie with the party logo silkscreened on top. The biggest surprise was a huge poster, with descriptive adjectives from his friends and family, a memorabilia wall, presentationsTable Setting from guests on their memories, and a printed and bound timeline of his life.
