Not every corporate holiday party has to be traditional red & green with Santa! And luckily, we have a wonderful client that hosts some of the best Holiday Parties EVER!!! This year, the theme was a Holiday Cruise… and all of the crazy antics you might run across along the way! The Park West was transformed into a nautical fantasy! Guests entered the party beneath a set of oversized sails… setting sail for a fun evening! One of the main food buffets a “Polynesian Delight.” Complete with a hula dancer, palm trees, tropical flowers and a flaming tiki torch. The other buffet was host to a “Pirate’s Bounty” with his treasure chest overflowing. He had obviously staked his claim as the Jolly Roger flag was already flying high! Beneath each of the buffets, the “Underwater World” came to life with bubbles, baubles, coral reefs, tropical fish… and even the Tick-Tock Croc. One of the ancillary buffets was the “Octopus’ Garden”… complete with moving tentacles that seemed to be trying to grab food right off the plates! The second ancillary buffet was the “Desert-ed Island”… yes, it was the dessert buffet! And what deserted island would be complete without every castaway’s best friend Wilson. Even the menu items were presented as the proverbial Message In A Bottle. To the side of the “Lido Deck” dance floor was the hull of the ship. A perfect location for the traditional photo-op with Santa, or in this case, the Holiday Captain of the Cruise Ship. Just waiting for that first person to have their “I’m the King of the World” moment. Including a mermaid and favorite sailor boy… As the party went on, more and more people were piling into the boat… some of the images were displayed on the large monitors throughout the room. Keeping the guests at bay… assorted “characters” roamed the room to keep the guests entertained & dancing. Lucky for us, Park West does NOT have a n0-parrots rule!!!
