Valentine’s Day Dinner Party

February 15th, 2019

It is an absolute compliment when our past clients reach out to us time and again. Such was the case with this client. We had planned and designed his wife’s 40th birthday party with a fabulous Great Gatsby Theme where guests stayed and danced until the wee hours of the morning. This time he wanted to invite a few couples from his YPO group to his home.

Since the party was a day before Valentines Day, it was a natural progression to have the theme represented in full swing. Clients dining table was covered in the most elegant linen of cream and gold. Gold chargers, taupe napkins, pink and gold rim glassware and gold flatware exuded understated elegance.

Flowers were all in shades of pinks to deep reds and gold and pink candles added further to the decadence. Client’s credenza was filled with pink and gold votives and candles and flowers were placed everywhere in the house.

Our butler received the guests and escorted them to the family room where they enjoyed delicious canapés and champagne. Beautiful and soft jazz played in the background and guests were escorted to the dining room for a decadent dining experience.

After being served hot soup and salad, the entrees which looked like pieces of art were brought out and served to the guests. Wines were paired with each course and amidst brilliant conversation and laughs, the cuisine was enjoyed by all tremendously. Instead of serving dessert at the table, we had decided to have an elaborate dessert display with coffee and tea. This was so guests could enjoy moving about and chit chatting while having the desserts.

It was a beautiful night filled with magic, romance and elegance. Each couple was presented with flowers upon departing along with a book on LOVE and the menus that had been printed for this special dinner. Needless to say I would have loved to have been a guest at this decadent table!

We can’t wait to do more events for these special clients who have become our friends.

Exquisite Travels: Back to Lahore

February 1st, 2019

Lahore is a city that is very close to Nikki’s heart. She spent her growing years in this city and has always been inspired by the culture, architecture, thriving art scene and theater this city has to offer. It was no wonder when she visited this past December after a few years, it was nourishing for her soul.

From the crowded markets to museums, old buildings dating back to Mughal era as well as sights, smells and sounds that took her back to her childhood days.

Here is a little glimpse of what was accomplished in her first few days of arrival. Shaila and Tahir Andrabi are a couple who reside in Claremont, and Tahir is a professor at the University. They have been in Lahore for the last six months where Tahir is on a sabbatical at LUMS, a very prestigious university in Lahore. Shaila has innate desire to learn as much about the city as possible, and to my knowledge, no one has soaked up what Lahore has to offer than this couple. In other words, they have become “True Lahoris.” Their three children who reside in the States were visiting the parents in Lahore and the couple invited family and friends to a brunch inside the walled city. The menu consisted of most popular dishes from various restaurants and were served in the most authentic style. The venue was Shahi Hamam which literally means “Royal Spa“ and is about 400 years old. Guests were welcomed by a violinist playing nostalgic tunes. Our hosts had done up the venue beautifully and their warmth and love made it the most enjoyable day. Guests were given private guided tour of the Hamam as well as Wazir Khan Mosque which has been restored to its former glory. Below are a few images of the day.
