Best Night Ever

Every year ExxonMobil challenges us to come up with something new and fresh for their End of Year Holiday Party.  We  decided that Hotel Zaza would be the  perfect setting for the evening we were about to claim as the “BEST NIGHT EVER”.  A perfect match paired with Hotel Zaza’s signature champagne cocktail THE BUBBLEBERRY.  What would be the BEST NIGHT EVER without Joseph West Photography to capture the evening and tell the story.

As we prepared for the BEST NIGHT EVER we knew that everyone working the party would have to play a role to help rely the message.  In proper Occasio fashion we made fabulous hats for all our ladies and had suspenders, bowties, and matching hats for all of the staff.  As guest arrived they knew it was a party!

We also created with Katie and Co. fun conversational branding that would tie into our theme.  Who wouldn’t like to blame the mustache or cheers with gusto?

With a fantastic white tent we decided to highlight it with colors of black and pink.  We brought in draping and lighting to highlight the space and give a focal point to the pool area.

We had a fantastic DJ paired with live Swirrlers.

We can’t forget Dessert!  How better to serve it than on a strolling table.


Mercedes Benz Honky Tonk Holiday Party

Fun! That describes this party from inception to end result–this party was FUN! With red, white, and blue detailing on everything and a dash of yuletide cheer, this party was a Honky Tonk dream!

Beer is a must to have a great Honky Tonk and guests enjoyed stopping by our Moonshine Sippin’ Bar! There were awesome boot shaped mugs with custom tags and napkins for guests to enjoy their beer. There were plenty of  sweet treats to go around along with an amazing place setting by Elegant Beginnings.

Guests had a great time mingling and playing games. From our special decor design to the delicious s’more shots the night was one no one will ever forget. Check out our S’more shot recipe below.
