White after Labor Day? When it’s a party this pretty? Of course!
A lucky group enjoyed a picture perfect day — these perfect pictures are by Rodney Bailey — on the the roof of the APhA building. The fantastic views in every direction were framed by the sleek decor from the creative collaboration of Hosts DC and Amaryllis. Working together, the team designed sparkly chandeliers suspended in Lucite standing cabs, mirrored bars, sleek all white club chairs and Chesterfield sofas with gobs of white Phalaenopsis orchids to give the party a cool, polished vibe.
Custom cocktails made with Alize Bleu to match the client’s theme and a light buffet perfectly complemented the sophisticated design. Refreshing Lobster Salad Verrines, Open-faced Picnic Sandwiches, Cocktail Panini and diced Butternut Squash Salad were part of the colorful and tasty menu.
The evening ended sweetly with Pick Up Desserts like Salted Caramel Cheesecakes, Champagne-splashed Fruit Confetti Cocktails, Ganache Brownie Points, Pumpkin Spice Whoopie Pies and a fun make-your-own S’mores station.
