Most of us have a 9-5 job, and we get busy with said job, we keep our heads down and work hard. I am lucky enough to be in a “social” industry (so most of the time it seems like were are doing social things!), we work very long hours, and sometimes we don’t get time off for a while because of our “season”. There are a lot of industry events that happen throughout the year and it’s a nice “break” so to speak. We can learn about the new happenings and catch up with our friends and colleagues.
Last night was one of those “breaks”. It’s even better when an “industry” dinner turns out to be a little something more. I had the pleasure of sitting at a wonderful dinner table last night. Beautifully set with a gorgeous table linen (thank you BBJ), orchids the color of a sunset artfully arranged in a long, lush arrangement the length of the table (well done Floralia Decorators) and some pretty spectacular company – a few old friends and now some new.
The chitchat waved back and forth from celebrity gossip to work related tasks then to funny work related stories. It was a real treat to sit with great company in a cozy setting, enjoying AMAZING food and remembering why I wanted to be in this business. We create remarkable events and we are a slave to creating amazing memories for our clients. Well, I had such a dinner last night. Thank you to our wonderful hosts John Wyatt of Sonnier & Castle and Leslie Palme of BBJ Linen. And an extra thank you to John and his staff at Sonnier & Castle for the exquisite dinner, they get top marks for it all. On a chilly, wintery night in New York City, this was definitely a memorable event.
