Not Your Ordinary Office Party

We can transform any space to make for an amazing event. For this office holiday party, we used their office for the venue and worked with what they had to make for a festive event with an array of holiday décor. We even used the reception desk to create a makeshift bar! With lush greenery, berries, pinecones and red roses used in the arrangements this festive event made for an office party unlike any other. Most offices are not the ideal setting for a holiday party but with the right décor, any room can become the perfect place for a party. Pink Monkey Events loves to use gold for the holidays and the gold linens helped to warm up this stark setting. If budget constraints do not allow for the ideal venue, not to worry! Pink Monkey can create a masterpiece out of any space with the right amount of creativity and imagination.

A Fun and Festive Holiday

We wanted to make this holiday party unique and specialized to their company. This company's logo is blue so we took on the challenge of creating blue festive holiday decor. We at Pink Monkey Events love to create holiday parties but without your typical Christmas red and green. A beautiful yet festive theme of vibrant green, teal blue and gold with subtle touches of deep red roses made for an incredible corporate event unlike any other. We used a trendy, Asian inspired venue which we turned into a sophisticated holiday event with the addition of colorful and fun decor. We brought in a large tree and covered it in an abundance of colorful ornaments and some added surprises such as tiny peacocks, feathers, ribbon and strands upon strands of glistening white lights. We used a term commonly used within the company to name our signature cocktail that was colored in the company's logo color. We even went a step further and had a light projected on the dance floor with the logo. Our goal is to make every party special to the client and different from anything done in the past and this party did just that!

Christmas Tree Lighting at Pink Monkey Events

It may not be as grand as the tree in Rockefeller Center but its certainly full of heart! We love to make our office feel like a home away from home for not only us Pink Monkeys but for our clients as well! We often have Christmas trees at our holiday events and we wanted ours to be just a special and grand. Adorned with an abundance of burgundy, gold & of course pink ornaments, our tree makes our office feel fabulously festive. We used an array of ornaments from vintage to glittery gold snowflakes. Our tree was topped with a huge homemade bow with long flowing swags down each side which is our Pink Monkey trademark on any tree we do. We love decorating our office for all of our clients to enjoy so we made sure to take a quick break during our busy day to bring some holiday spirit into our office!

50th Birthday Party Paints the Town Red

We were inspired by her favorite color and used various shades of red from deep burgundy to vibrant crimson in the floral arrangements, linens and décor elements.With this event being in the Fall, we incorporated Fall details into the décor since red is an essential shade of the season. Pink Monkey Events used red roses, fall leaves, branches, gold accents and candles to make this birthday party sophisticated yet festive. This event had an intimate, warm feel that Pink Monkey Events loves. Soft lighting, rich colors and lush décor made this party birthday stand out from the rest. Birthday parties can have an array of design schemes and can range from playful to trendy to intimate as shown with this beautiful event.

Keeping It Personal

With this 40th Birthday we wanted to make this party personal. This birthday party was the perfect opportunity to celebrate all areas of Dean’s life. We used unique touches to make this party personal. This unbelievable Wall Street Journal cake featured all the highlights of Dean’s year with some added humor. The cake was the highlight of the evening and brought a special touch to this party. We kept the décor clean to compliment the minimalistic, loungy feel of this Tribeca Skyline Studios venue. Crisp linens and florals allowed for the personal details to be the star. We created a signature cocktail, “Dean’s Big 4-0h Mojito” and decorated the bar with fun drink tags. To make this party ideal for Dean there were also poker tables and Nintendo Wii for the guests to enjoy if they wanted to take a break from dancing.  Pink Monkey Events loves to incorporate our client’s personality into the party to make it memorable for both the client and the guests!

Monkeying Around the Office

We here at Pink Monkey Events wanted to give you a little sneak peak into our office. There are certainly no white walls or office chairs to be found here! Our goal is to make every client feel as comfortable as possible when they visit us! Make an appointment to come visit us at our Upper West Side location and cozy up in our office during a consultation or meeting. Whether we are monkeying around or hard at work, we love to enjoy the lovely surroundings of our office.

Decorated in warm colors and plush fabrics, our office is typically filled with fresh flowers and some candy treats for visitors. Our office feels like home to us so why not have our clients feel at home too? The Pink Monkey office is even equipped with our very own little monkeys. Our top dogs, or as we call them monkeys, Paco & Harley are always here to welcome you with wagging tails. In your next visit to Pink Monkey, come by and meet all the monkeys!

Add More than Just Turkey to Your Table

Thanksgiving is one of our favorite times of the year! Fall lends itself to an abundance of colorful decorative ideas. The warm colors of the season allow for a truly inviting table setting. A festive table setting whether for a family of 4 or 40, make the holidays that much more special.  We love to put colored leaves down the center of the table in place of a table runner to incorporate the outdoors. We also included amber votives and rustic flower arrangements. Another fun fall detail was to tie a piece of wheat around the napkin with a ribbon. The small details are very important to make a table setting truly special. You can even use Mason jars instead of glass vases for a rustic elegant look! Who says the turkey needs to be the only focus of your Thanksgiving table?

Falling For Pink Monkey

Is there anything more beautiful than New York City in the fall? Well maybe Pink Monkey Events fall weddings. This season lends itself to beautiful warm colors and unique elements that can only be used for a couple short months. Luckily for us September and October are our busiest months for weddings! After all who doesn’t love fall in New York? Luckily in New York the weather is still mild enough to have an outdoor event in October so you can enjoy the changing foliage around you. In this wedding we incorporated pinecones, pears and colored leaves in with the roses to embrace this wonderful season. Deep reds, browns and burnt orange made for a lovely color palette. A properly done fall theme never fails because the season is the essence of warmth, which seamlessly goes well with weddings!

Chic Arizona Weekend

Our latest destination wedding was nothing short of spectacular! The entire weekend was planned to be enjoyable for all the guests as well as the couple. From the time everyone arrived at the hotel to the final farewell brunch we made sure every detail was taken care of. Jacqueline and Kevin, are such a chic couple that me made sure these events reflected both their personalities and style. The weekend began with a sexy, outdoor welcome reception where the guests  enjoyed some light bites along with plenty of fun and yummy cocktails. Let’s not forget the homemade gelato station at the end of the night! We transformed the hotel’s pool area into a ultra trendy lounge for the guests to mingle and enjoy the first night of their wedding weekend. We played with blue colored lights to set the mood of this event. The following day was the ceremony that included the breathtaking views of Arizona as the backdrop which looked almost too beautiful to be real! We incorporated the theme of hot pinks, oranges and yellows in the ceremony with a beautiful and plush aisle of colorful rose petals. Another unique detail was the hanging crystals above the couple as they said their vows that caught the sunlight to create just enough sparkle. The fun continued at the end of the ceremony when the bride surprised the groom with a traditional 2nd line band for lead them into their cocktail and dinner reception. The chic theme of vibrant colors and playful textures made this reception one to remember. The décor matched both what the couple wanted as well as their destination which was so important to us. With warm and bright floral arrangements combined with tons of candles, this party combined style with fun effortlessly. This wedding would not have been the same without the outstanding photographs to remember it by. We love the photographer Sergio for totally capturing the entire vibe of this weekend! He understood our attention to detail and captured it with ease. We also want to thank the florist Avant-Garde for bringing all of the elements to this wedding to life with total sophistication and talent!
