Totally Awesome 80’s Prom!

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

It’s not typical for a corporation – especially an insurance company – to do such a lighthearted theme during the holidays, but we are lucky to work with a wonderful client for the third year in a row who encourages their employees each year to let loose, dress the part, and have a blast!

Lighting and entertainment played a dynamic role in this party. The multi-colored uplighting changed hues throughout the evening, and the pattern wash on the floor, disco balls on the ceiling and slot glass projection finished the look. To truly embrace this totally awesome decade, we had memorabilia as centerpieces on the tables like roller skates and mini arcade games!

Last year the group enjoyed a 20’s art deco theme party and around half of the guests dressed the part showing up in flapper costumes donned in feathers. This year however, the group took their party prep to another level and fully embodied the theme by embracing their inner mullets and permed hair styles!!!

With approximately 80% of guests showing up in 80’s prom attire, this event was totally rad, and at the end of the of the evening, a prom King & Queen were named complete with sashes and crowns.

This group really loves to dance- they filled the dance floor from the beginning of the night until the end! With these dancing machines, a surprise performance by professional break dancers was the perfect fit! After entertaining the crowd with their smooth moves, the break dancers taught some slick dance styles to the guests and got everyone involved.

These clients year after year are wonderful to work with; we appreciate their partnership, lasting relationship and letting us run loose with these fun and entertaining themes!

Get Creative at Your Next Event!

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

Looking for a fun way to create a splash at your next event? Adding a creative activity might be just what your event needs.

We began this corporate dinner with an interactive art activity and a charitable element tied seamlessly together. Guests arrived at their dinner table topped with Kraft paper and art inspired table décor including floral bouquets in paint cans and tall paint brushes in glass vases.

After a brief introduction, each table received a 2’ x 2’ canvas square with black color-by- number designs, and markers. Teen artists were also available to help guide the guests throughout the activity as well. The coloring then commenced with guests taking turns coloring in each section of the two canvas. After approximately 20 minutes each square was complete! Teams were judged on speed and accuracy. Each team was done with their square, but what did it mean?

When all squares were complete, each table was called up one-by -one to bring their square to the front and mount their piece to this large display board. In doing so they revealed the ultimate art piece and inspirational message Creativity, Unity, Inclusion. Equity, Liberty

The piece was donated that night to the Boys & Girls Club and is proudly displayed on their wall.

At Corinthian Events, we love creating events that are memorable to guests and fit your overall goal impeccably. Need some great ideas? We are full of them!

Corinthian Events Goes Cowboy

Tuesday, February 7th, 2017

wild west bar

Howdy y’all! Welcome to the wild, wild west.

When your client comes to you with an idea for a saloon themed party, you need to go all out. From mechanical bulls to whiskey tastings, we knew we had to create just the right balance of class and sass!

wild west decor

The evening began with the sounds of a live blue-grass duo and the visual backdrop of a classic black & white American Western movie projected in an adjourning atrium to further set the scene. Guests were offered cowboy hats and bandanas to complete their ensembles.

The first stop of the night? An antique photo booth filled with old world props and classic western attire to transform into character and capture all the western vibes in a sepia tinted photo to take home with them. The booth offered a quick-change option with all pieces to set the mood including women’s fringe dresses, boas, feathered headpieces, bowler & cowboy hats, vests, and cowboy boots.

If guests found themselves in need of refreshment they could sidle over to the custom saloon bar and place an order with the barkeep. Outfitted with rope, beer growlers, and a “Happy Trails” sign, the 12-foot bar was a centerpiece of the design.

whiskey tasting

Whiskey lovers were in for an additional treat with a whiskey tasting led by a bona-fide expert. Guests enjoyed sampling and learning about 6 different types of whiskey throughout the evening. The western look was completed with an antique wagon and whiskey barrel high-top tables.

wild west furniture

The energetic crowd took respite in this perfectly western comfy soft seating arrangement which included real cowhide rugs and classic chesterfield style leather couches adorned with faux fur pillows and blankets.

wild west games

As the guests mingled throughout the event, there was a multitude of experiences for everyone to enjoy including stylized versions of casino games such as darts, roulette, black jack, and pool.

Cowboys and girls took part in a professional line dancing class while ambitious guests took turns on the mechanical bull… this group was not afraid to let their inner western side show!

Meet & Greet: Arrivals at Logan

Tuesday, January 31st, 2017

First impressions are everything when your guests touch ground.

Whether you have 10 or 500 guests, finding the right vendor to partner with for your meet and greet services is crucial to the success of any program. Your guests’ arrival at the airport is their first impression of what the program will entail and we strive to make sure it’s a memorable welcome.

Chauffeurs can’t leave their vehicles at Logan International Airport, therefore additional team members are utilized to ensure a smooth transition for arrivals. Our meet and greet service includes a professionally attired and knowledgeable greeter, ready at baggage claim, holding a sign with either your company logo or their name; whichever is more appropriate for your group. In addition, guests are given our phone number so they have direct communication with us should they have trouble finding their greeter.

For clients, we make airport transportation look like a breeze.  We take the guests flight details, both arrivals and departures, and we break them out into a cohesive manifest.  We group guests together where possible to save on overall costs, always making sure no guest is stuck waiting.  If a flight is early or delayed, we can quickly adjust vehicles accordingly.

Logan International Airport is conveniently located in East Boston, just a short transfer to downtown Boston.  So no matter where their destination may be located in Boston a quick transfer from the airport is always obtainable.

With our vast knowledge of the city we know when we need permits, police details, etc. which makes the arrival and departure process on the curb a smooth experience for all!
