2015 brought us the opportunity to work with the Bank of America on several occasions, but our absolute favorite event of theirs this year was the tree-lighting at Celsius in Bryant Park.
The event was mainly for kids, so there were lots of games and activities scattered through all three floors, as well as a professional ice skating show. It was jam-packed with kids and their parents getting ready for the holidays, so as you can imagine, the atmosphere was abuzz with excitement and rosy cheeks. We couldn’t wait to get started!
Decor for the event featured a combination of classic “winter white” blossoms with silver accents and holiday greens. The bars were a temporary home to a magnificent winter wonderland of snow branches, white amaryllis, white birch, and oversized silver and gold ornaments.
The event featured a total of 28 floral arrangements with an icy and sophisticated theme. The Vice President of Events at Bank of America, who is a close friend of ours, did a wonderful job choosing gorgeous navy blue furniture rentals for the event, which went perfectly with our winter white arrangements. She also had a lighting specialist project oversized snowflakes on the walls behind the bars. It was festive and fantastically neutral, while keeping its holiday spirit.
This event was also the first in which Barbara, whom we introduced a few posts ago, worked with the Julia Testa team as a full-time employee rather than a freelancer working at our side. We loved having her! All in all, the tree-lighting event was fabulous, festive, and fun, and we can’t wait to work with Bank of America again throughout 2016.
