Seeing Purple at the ALS TDI Gala

Friday, December 4th, 2015

We are so happy to have been a part of the ALS TDI Gala at the Sheraton Boston this past month. Over 450 guests turned out for the moving affair, enjoying cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in the lobby and Constitution Ballroom on the second floor. Tables were dressed in logo colors of purple, blue and silver, while simple florals in beakers added a pop of color to the space.

As guests moved into the ballroom, they found their seats at round or square low tables.  Guest dined on a three course meal, as they sat for a moving program given by the ALS TDI community.  After the “Ask” concluded, guests donned their dancing shoes as they listened to the live vocal performance of the band FreeStyle for the remainder of the night.

For guests who wanted to continue the party, they could find themselves in the after party room, where a DJ spun the top 40 tunes until well past 1am.  Guests enjoyed some late night bites, including breakfast sandwiches, as they left it all out on the dance floor.

All in all, guests had another amazing year at the ALS TDI Gala!

An Autumnal Forum

Thursday, November 12th, 2015

Registration Sign

This past September, we had the great pleasure of partnering with the Council on Business and Society on their esteemed International Forum. This year’s host of the Forum was the Tuck School of Business and Dartmouth College.

Our venue for this 2-day conference was the Seaport World Trade Center. What better backdrop than the Atlantic Ocean for this gathering! The topic for this year’s Forum was Energy, Business, and Society.

This global gathering was kicked off by a traditional New England Autumnal Dinner. We had the opportunity to deck out one of our favorite ballrooms in the city – The Lighthouse – in warm autumn tones.

Hors D’oeuvres

Table Setting

Soft music was playing as guests mingled and checked into the conference by our professional registration staff on iPads. Guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres before seating for a three course dinner and welcoming their first keynote speaker.

Speaker

In the morning, guests were given a lovely takeaway tote to keep their belongings throughout the day. The tote included a small keepsake from New England as well! The meeting was comprised of many distinctive keynote speakers and concluded in the great Amphitheater space at the WTC in a Case Competition of graduate students delivering their perspectives on the issues.

Well laid out signage was used throughout this vast conference center to keep our group together and well organized. Strategically placing signage with the conference logo is a great tip for any meeting planner! Overall, the meeting was a great success shared by many. Because the Forum’s topic was on energy, there was a great emphasis on ensuring the many green opportunities were met. Water bottles were served as pitchers on beverage stations, coffee cups were all ceramic and not paper, and even the meeting agenda and speaker program was printed on FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) paper. We thank our friends at Dartmouth College for their partnership and look forward to the next one!

Fall in the North End

Tuesday, November 10th, 2015

Table Setting

Corinthian Events had the pleasure of partnering with the Battery Wharf Hotel to design a VIP client luncheon in their raw gallery space for 20 guests.

The theme was “Fall in the North End”, so of course we brought in yellow straw hay bales, rustic wooden farm tables, red orange and yellow mums wrapped in burlap, round orange pumpkins & beautiful mini gourds.

Guest senses were delighted by the cozy aroma of baked apples, cinnamon and autumn leaves through scented candles placed around the room.  Hot apple cider was offered to guests upon entering the luncheon on this crisp fall day.

Table décor for the farm tables consisted of festive gourds and pumpkins staged on wooden planks, while votives and lanterns made an ambient glow in the raw space. Lunch included a make your own panini station artfully displayed by the Chef from Aragosta Restaurant on a rustic wooden market cart. After lunch, guests retreated to Aragosta where they created their own s’mores on outside fire pits.

Zombie Apocalypse? Not in Boston!

Friday, November 6th, 2015

Zombies in Boston
Halloween may have passed, but before the stuffed turkeys and Christmas carols start rolling in, there’s one very important matter to talk about: The Zombie Apocalypse. Last week, CareerBuilder and Economic Modelling Specialists International (EMSI) released their ranking of which cities in the US stand a fighting chance against the zombie apocalypse, and guess what? Boston is ranked the NUMBER ONE city to survive the zombie apocalypse!

CareerBuilder ranked the cities using their Zombie Apocalypse Index and scored each city based on their abilities to contain the virus, cure the virus, defend the city against  Zombies, and supply enough food to outlast the epidemic. PR Newswire says that Boston has the “right skills, population density and industry resources” to come out on top if the city were to be invaded with Zombies.

Not only was Boston the top city to survive a zombie apocalypse, but we’re also the most likely to cure the virus, and the only thing cooler than surviving the apocalypse is being the city that puts an end to it. We can say thanks to all of the biological and medical professionals in the area for this ranking (and for keeping us from turning into zombies).

The other cities most likely to survive are Salt Lake City, Columbus, Baltimore, Virginia Beach, Seattle, San Diego, Kansas City, Denver, and Indianapolis.
