It was a true pleasure to style an elegant dinner party at The Glass Houses for long-time industry friends from Peachtree and Ward catering who are introducing their new Atlantic City venue called One Atlantic to the New York media. Forty members of the press dined at long feast tables, enjoying a locally-focused "100 Mile" menu as well as a killer view of the City lights on a beautiful January night.
Guests found name tags arranged carefully in a lucite tray filled with coarse-ground sea salt.
The view of the tables and the cityscape was framed by a "wall" of suspended candles and orchids which divided the cocktail and dinner space.
Each guest found his seat labeled with a personalized menu created in-house at Lindsay Landman Events. Ivory cardstock was printed with brown ink and layered on metallic copper paper and accented with a hand calligraphed name tag.
A landscape of burnt orange candles in stemmed glasses filled with sea salt was integrated with a succession of glass vases filled with chocolate cymbidium orchids, brown and orange vanda orchids, orange tulips and roses.
