The theme of the night was Black and White with a touch of Fun.  There were pantomimes dressed in black and white checkered head-to-toe leotards that greeted guests as they entered through a tunnel of with rotating images like a fun house.  Servers with pre-poured champagne glasses were lined up at the entrance so they could sip as they walked inside.

The bands were phenomenal – The Motown Quartet, Impulse Orchestra, and Dave Sparkman Band.  There were dancing couples to get the crowd motivated but by the end of the evening the dance floor was packed.

6 bars outlined the ballroom stocked with Grey Goose Vodka.  3 of the bars were made of large ice sculptured fronts with the Grey Goose logo etched in.

 

Aerialists, a la Cirque de Soleil style, performed synchronizing to the music.  A “Bubble Girl” was stationed behind the bar with a flowing skirt about 1 story high.  At the top of the skirt was a girls blowing bubbles as she grooved to the music (see above pic).

The food was catered by Chef Joachim Splichal of Patina Catering.
