It is one of the first wintry days of 2012. I lay here with a cast up to my knee(repeat foot surgery) and have time to reflect on 2011 and the events our team put together. In my mind, I’m pitching various themes for my next blog, but all I can imagine is a blog of pictures because what I remember most is how gorgeous my clients’ homes are. I am the luckiest person in the world, because I get to see one after another of the most spectacular homes in Massachusetts. So here it goes… 2011: A Year in Pictures! But please, please, don’t be lazy and take in only the first few shots, because the best ones are at the end. One in particular, can’t be missed. Make sure you have a few free minutes to get through this wonderful photo editorial.
The year started off with three birthday events. They couldn’t have been more different. I blogged last year about each one of them, they were each so amazing in their own respect.
The first being a foodie’s dream of shellfish, bruschetta’s, sausages, lobster panini’s, pulled pork sliders, and more…
The third, a breathtaking barn, converted into an intimate dinner party for close friends:
Some pictures from two of the weddings we catered:
Our team also catered some events at more public venues, like Larz Anderson Museum in Brookline, for the American Orthopaedic Association President’s Dinner, a corporate dinner at the Old State House and a Cocktail Cruise on the Liberty Clipper Schooner for State St.:
Old State House:
Last but not least, are the absolutely stunning holiday parties we catered this December season. Our clients homes are the most gorgeous in New England. My dream is to someday put a coffee table book together called “The Best of Boston Homes: Entertaining during the Holidays”. Our clients’ homes are the most gorgeous homes in the greater Boston area. My staff and I are typically speechless whenever we arrive at a new “spectacular” home, and they just keep getting better. My clients all have gorgeous taste and I am very proud to work with them year after year. Thank you to all of you!
I could not edit this one. This client is one of my favorite people in the world. Her mantra is one of service, as one of the key founders of City Year. Her kids were raised with this philosophy and it shows. They are amazing. There are pictures of the family in Africa, Haiti, and elsewhere… and for them, it’s all about giving back. This event was a fundraiser for the Pine Street Inn and no expense was spared. There were carolers, a boys A cappella group, a gospel singer, volunteers from City Year making crafts with the kids, pony rides, Santa arriving on a fire truck. At every turn, there were more niches of fun. I was running around like a 5 year old, trying to take it all in. On top of that, her house is absolutely GORGEOUS!! Furnishings and decor are very eclectic- Moroccan, Asian, Mexican, African, you name it… and it’s all pulled together in such a way that you cannot stop sneaking around to see all the little goodies she has.
And, last but not least, a few more pics from the other holiday events we catered. Enjoy:
And just a few more to top things off:
These small plates were passed to guests on giant silver trays at a Pharmaceutical Company’s Board of Director’s and Executives Holiday Party:
We’ve been catering this high-end holiday event since, gosh, 1997?!? One of my favorite clients, she reminds me of Princess Diana, a very elegant, gorgeous and poised woman. Love her!
If you made it this far, thank you so much for taking the time to see the hard work our team puts in year after year. They are amazing. We are amazing. Happy New Year!
