Fall in the North End

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.

Boston’s Adult Playground

Tuesday, September 1st, 2015

Massachusetts Convention Center Authority

Adults (and kids) of Boston officially have a new playground!  Lawn on D, which opened last August, provides a “next-generation park” to Bostonians and visitors.  This three-acre lot adjacent to the BCEC hosts weekly live music performances, art installations and lawn games in an effort to bolster civic engagement and foster creativity in South Boston.  Boy, have they been successful!  The outdoor space can fit 3,000 guests for events from Spring through Fall and has definitely been a popular destination.

Summer To Do BCEC South Boston

With only 21 days left of Summer, Lawn on D is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the last few weeks of warm weather.  The space hosts a rotating list of Boston’s best food trucks on a weekly basis, offers Friday “lunch breaks” featuring Berklee College musicians and recently launched “Sport’s Sundays”, where visitors can cheer on the Red Sox under The Tent!  The venue also presents a wide array of signature events designed to entertain and delight.  This fall, locals can attend a music festival, kids day or pumpkin fest – all for free!

The Lawn on D is open from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm daily through early October.  For more information or to plan your visit, head to http://lawnond.com/!

About Town: Art on the Greenway

Tuesday, August 11th, 2015

On a beautiful Spring, Summer or Fall day we consider ourselves quite fortunate to have the Rose Kennedy Greenway just steps away from our office.  The result of Boston’s infamous “Big Dig” and more than a decade of planning and construction, the Greenway is a mile and a half of contemporary parks in the heart of Boston that connect people in the city with beauty and fun.  Besides the plethora of parks and variety of food trucks, one of our favorite things about the Greenway is the abundance of art.  From sculptures to murals the innovative and contemporary exhibits are constantly changing and always a treat to take in.  Best of all, they are free!

One of our favorite instillation’s is the monumental sculpture hovering hundreds of feet above (you read that right) the Greenway.  ”As If It Were Already Here” from internationally renowned local artist, Janet Echelman, is a must see in our opinion.  The soft, billowing sculpture is designed to respond to the forces of nature – wind, water and light.  The piece is mesmerizing during the day but when lit at night creates a particularly powerful impact.  Although the exhibit is temporary, you have till early October to sit beneath the knotted fiber sculpture and admire it’s whimsy!

This past June, the Greenway unveiled their newest public installation in the Chinatown section of the park.  Located just around the corner from our office we love seeing these cute, paper sheep on our way to and from the train.  Did you know 2015 is the Year of the Sheep?  ”Wandering Sheep” is the first in a series of animal exhibits based on the Chinese zodiac and in 2016 the exhibit will feature monkeys!  The new art in the Southern area of the park is a great way to connect this sometimes forgotten end to the rest of the Greenway.

Last, but certainly not least, is the 70 x 76 foot Shinique Smith mural in Dewey Square.  Installed in September 2014, “Seven Moon Junction” will be on display through August 2015 – so catch it before it’s gone!  Inspired by the intersection where the mural resides, the merging of people and the joining of art and life, Smith’s mural is centered by a constellation of fabrics patterned with bursting fireworks and flowers.  We love grabbing a bite to eat at a nearby food truck and basking in the sun beneath this larger than life piece, but can’t wait to see the what’s on deck for September!

Whether it’s a long walk down the Greenway on a perfect Saturday or a 10 minute break from the office we urge you to catch these unique exhibitions before they are gone and while the sun is still shining.  As much as we hate do admit it, we’ll be buried in snow and huddled indoors before we know it!

Missed Us?

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015

It’s safe to say that the week of June 15th was the busiest one we’ve seen in awhile!  You may have noticed (or at least assumed from the multiple “out of office” emails) that a majority of the CE team spent last week on site.  Large programs in Boston, Cambridge and Newport had our team working around the clock to ensure a flawless execution and great guest experience.

We can’t take all the credit though… We’d like to give a big shout out to all of the amazing staff that assisted us throughout the week, many of whom are close friends and family members of CE! Our hard working Harvard day staff are featured in the picture above and they are only a portion of the small army who helped us to get through the week.

As we continue to get back into the swing of things, we’ll be sure to update you on all of our June happenings.  Keep an eye out for some event recaps in the coming weeks!
