An industry dinner and a little something more…

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.

Beautiful linen, table ware and flowers make any dinner special...
Beautiful linen, table ware and flowers make any dinner special…checkout BBJ Linen, they have a gorgeous selection and their customer service is top notch.  For amazing flowers visit  Floralia Decorators.

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.

Dinner was delicious!  All of the plates were beautiful presented and the waiters and their table service was elegant and accommodating. (And well dressed!)
Dinner was delicious! All of the plates were beautifully presented, the waiters and their table service was elegant and accommodating.  Sonnier & Castle is not your ordinary “catering” company.  There is thought and passion behind everything they put in front of you.  This is not just food but an experience, I highly recommend them for any event.
A fun surprise of the night was finally getting to chat with Lauri Ditunno the fabulous and talented baker who owns Cake Alchemy here in NYC.
We even got to take our own little cake home! A fun surprise of the night was finally getting to chat with Lauri Ditunno, the fabulous and talented baker who owns Cake Alchemy here in NYC.  (And who made the tasty treats for us!)
