Creating an elegant gathering at an executive's home!

Last holiday season we brought the executive team from a large pharmaceutical firm together after a long time of virtual correspondence. The host welcomed her leadership team into her home for an elegant evening of delicious food, craft cocktails, and a chance to reconnect in person! For this small group, we did a play on a surf and turf to create a welcoming atmosphere and show the team her appreciation. 

There were some goals that needed to be achieved through this dinner. Some of the guests joined the team during their virtual time, which is why the host wanted to create a warm space in her home for new members to meet one another as well as build connections with the existing team.

Even though this was meant to be a more casual setting to gather her team, this event had to be executed at a certain level as this was a group of c-suite executives in attendance. Finding the balance of elegance and comfort was the basis for a lot of our design decisions here. She even worked in some of her own china, silverware, and flatware to add personal elements, without losing the refined nature of the evening. We did a full kitchen build in the garage to execute this menu.
