Company Winter Wonderland

For this corporate holiday party, the client wanted to create a Winter Wonderland in this trendy New York City nightclub. Cool blue lighting was key to creating this wintery atmosphere. The focal points were two frosted Christmas trees adorned with multi-colored blue, silver and white ornaments, mini birds, feathers, pine cones and icicles. Pink Monkey Events likes to add fun elements to Christmas trees rather than sticking to just the typical ornaments. We also used an abundance of white branches to cover all the railings for a wintery feel. These same branches filled tall vases filled with snow to make grand bar arrangements incorporating the theme. Additional décor included frosted candle votives, strands of white Christmas lights, all white floral arrangements and glittery snowflakes throughout the room to finish the look. Finally a yummy signature cocktail, gift raffle, lots of dancing and a faux snowfall helped to make for a fun and festive evening for all guests!

Pink Monkey Gets Married!

Here at Pink Monkey we have some very exciting news... Michelle, owner of Pink Monkey Events, got married this past December and we couldn’t wait to share the details with you! It all started with a gorgeous pair of Wedgwood blue (Michelle & her fiancée’s favorite color) satin Badley Mischka heels that Michelle spotted right after their engagement that would inevitably inspire the entire event. We had the shoes in our office because we were constantly referring back to them while planning and obsessing over the unique shade of blue. But panic set in when the shoes mysteriously went missing and being the key element, we were on a mission to find these shoes. After tearing apart the office, Michelle’s fiancée took her back to the store to buy a new pair and all that was left was one pair that was 1/2 size bigger but she vowed to make them work! After every wedding there is a funny story to tell and this wedding just happened to start with one. Once everyone could focus now that the shoes were back, we had so much fun working together to plan this event to make it this wedding perfect for this perfect couple.
Taking place in the sleek and modern venue, Tribeca Skyline Studios, not only lent itself to breathtaking views of the city and expectational service but gave us a clean slate to work with so we could make Michelle’s vision a reality. Michelle chose a theme of vintage gold, lavish red and ice blue that incorporated a touch of wintery elements that made for stunning decor. There were so many fun and unique elements to this event from monogrammed pillows on the lounge couches to the cocktail napkins on the bar to the miniature birds nests that created a one-of-a-kind seating card table. We created an invite that was presented as a beautiful package that encompassed the overall feel of the event with feathers, a vintage rhinestone broach and satin ribbon. The tables were adorned with crisp blue linens, antique gold votives, elaborate candelabras, bold red roses and lavish gold flatware. Special thanks to Jessie from Rountree Flowers for the flawless job she did creating the extraordinary floral arrangements and additional decor elements. Michelle also wanted her wedding to feel personal so there were special custom touches throughout. The ring barriers’ pillows were embellished with the bride & groom’s initials and the wedding date. Being the romantic that he is, her soon to be husband bought Michelle a exquisite fur coat as a pre wedding gift that the couple had embroidered specifically for the wedding day. Also not typical for most of our weddings, Michelle wanted to make sure we had something fun for the large number of children attending. We set up a super cool kid’s lounge equipped with Wii, karaoke and tons of games to keep the children happy and their parents even happier. We are so happy to share with all of you this wedding that has such an extra special meaning to Pink Monkey Events!
