A Steppin’ Out Success!

Corinthian Events Dimock Steppin' Out 2011

In an entertainment-filled affair, the Dimock Center’s 2011 Steppin’ Out Gala was certainly an evening of fun at the Westin Copley Place.  Guests arrived to find lit marquees above various ballroom doors, denoting the locations of performances by a plethora of musical acts to ensue later in the evening.  After a smooth, iPad facilitated registration, guests were invited to enjoy cocktails, passed hors d’oeuvres and mingling as they awaited dinner.

The ballroom doors opened and guests found themselves in an elegant yet whimsical venue.  Dynamic lighting played off of glass centerpieces, transforming the room into a space that shimmered.  After a three course meal, guests hopped amongst smaller rooms to enjoy musical acts from the Harlem Gospel Choir, the North Shore A Capella Group and more!

Retirement Party Chic at the EpiCenter

Event Planning by Corinthian Events at the Artists for Humanity EpiCenter

We recently had the opportunity to work in one of our favorite venues – the Artists for Humanity EpiCenter in South Boston!  The foundation’s raw gallery space is an event designer’s dream; a clean slate that’s ready for anything.  We chose sleek, modern pieces and accented them with bold linen and pops of color.  The fabulous in-house artwork doesn’t hurt, either.

Blasts of amber and red light worked in tandem with an abundance of candlelight to really bring the space to life.

A live chef demo station quickly became the hub of the party. Local celebrity Chef Jamie Mammano of Mistral was on hand churning out plates of mouth-watering pasta to eager guests. Towards the end of the night, the station transitioned from savory to sweet, plating up sinfully delicious profiteroles.

Rounding out the evening, DJ Kupah worked the beats from the second floor balcony as guests grooved the night away!

Repeat anyone? We’re always looking for an excuse visit Mistral…

The ICA Celebrates 75 Years at the Airport

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

Corinthian Events Special Event Planning

Last weekend, Boston’s Institute of Contemporary Art celebrated its 75th anniversary with a party raising $1.9 million for the museum.  When the annual gala could not be held on the waterfront as traditionally planned, the ICA came to us for a unique venue alternative.  And we found just that!  Our day started at 4am, ensuring that Delta planes were cleared of the space and trucks were escorted onto the tarmac to unload – a busy, setup-filled day!

All 700 guests arrived at the ICA and to their surprise, they were immediately whisked away to an unknown location!  Nineteen trolleys transferred guests directly to the Delta Hanger where they were greeted by traffic controllers in tyvek suits.  Anticipation rose as guests passed through the Delta support building and under a constructed marquis, ultimately finding a branded 757 parked just inside the entryway.  Entering beneath the plane, guests arrived in a cocktail area filled with scattered high tops, soft seating and Delta baggage carts.  Trays of hors d’oeuvres and 3oz (TSA regulation size) tequila and lime shooters were passed.  Cocktail bubblers were stationed around the space, allowing guests to pour their own blood orange cosmopolitans.

Following cocktails, guests were invited to sit at the eclectic array of tables for a two-course dinner featuring tuna ceviche and venison.  Table decor included monochromatic fresh florals and the table numbers reflected the last 75 years of the Museum’s life-span.  The ICA’s program was enhanced with a contemporary dance performance by Rashaad Newsome, and once completed, guests then re-boarded the trolleys for dessert and (late into the night) dancing at the ICA!

And who doesn’t love some praise here and there? Our new favorite Delta Hangar manager, Joe passed friendly feedback our way – “I like working with people who work their ass off and “get it done” so it was a pleasure to team up with Corinthian Events. After a little sleep I was able to kick back and think about what we just accomplished. Pretty amazing. You guys run a class act organization and believe you guys are top choice in event planning.”  That’s another great success for CE, if you ask me!
