NACE Gala at the Radisson Valley Forge

Business

It should be no surprise that wedding and event professionals know how to throw one hell of a party. This was exactly the case at the NACE gala last night.

NACE is the National Association for Catering and Events. Every year they host a beautiful, all-out shindig for people in the industry. This year it was held at the Radisson Valley Forge Casino Resort. The theme was Roaring 20s/prohibition era and the place was set up with amazing music, lights and décor. All of the professionals involved created a magnificent scene speakeasy-style. Think men in hats, women in boas, and lots of jazz.

NACE President and owner of All About Events, Sarah Morrison, headed a beautiful night. The always fabulous Synergetic DJs took care of the beginning of the party as guests drank whiskey and gambled at tables set up around the mezzanine. Eventions Productions handled the drool-worthy lights – tons of different filament bulbs individually strung from the ceiling and a long row of bulbs along the stage. Little Woman Designs made the paper products – thick, rich menu cards with metallic letterpress on black. There was a tarot card reader, (candy) cigarette girls, and an entrance that was as exciting as the event itself. I was completely into the florals by Papertini – peacock feathers, cigar boxes, red roses, sparkly centerpieces, old newspaper-vellum wrapped tealights, and candles all over.

I snapped some images of the room before the party began. I’d love to show you pictures from the rest of the night but I was off dancing (ONYX from Philly Event Group ROCKED!) and having a great time!  In addition to making a party; wedding and event professionals know how to throw down.  I hear things were still going strong at 2am.

“The New Woman of the 1920s boldly asserted her right to dance, drink, smoke, and date—to work her own property, to live free of the strictures that governed her mother’s generation. She flouted Victorian-era conventions and scandalized her parents. In many ways, she controlled her own destiny.”~ Joshua Zeitz, Flapper: A Madcap Story of Sex, Style, Celebrity, and the Women Who Made America Modern

[the value of] a Professional
This is a story of one very amateur crafter who knew her place in the world.It begins with a giddy couple and their brand new house. Their heritage (her a Scot, he a Jew) made the name of their Philly castle quite obvious: Glen Yiddish. She loved all things Pinterest and set about to make a plaque for their abode. She found slate on a string, some paint, a font she loved, and figured, “how hard could this be?”She made an attempt to lightly imprint a reverse image onto the slate (genius, right?). Not so much.Our heroine flipped it over and attempted to just free-hand it. Splotches were made. Mistakes were, um, "revised" with more paint. ...
