This fall we collaborated yet again with one of our favorite clients Opening Ceremony and the Boston based investment firm Gordon Brothers. Farm-to-Table treats were on the menu for this fashion meets finance cocktail party in the fashion labels HQ. Hamachi Skewers, Hen-of-the-woods mushroom crostini, seasonal pumpkin croquettes and more were just a few of the delectable bites on the menu. The guests sipped on French 75’s and champagne flowed all night for this casual cocktail party for 150 guests.

Very soon, the Holidays will be underway
so we’d like to tell you of a lovely Soirée
on the Nineteenth day of this chilly December
a night in New York will be a night to remember
we’ll laugh and we’ll play with a joke or a jest
we’ll dance through the halls, tease with our eyes
and around each corner, yet another surprise..
So deck yourself out and save “the halls” for later.
The night is approaching so please, do not be coy

Gimmejoy 2015 is the annual holiday immersive collaboration from HighLife & Rapt Affairs. This was an evening of unimaginable intrigue and extraordinary cheer that awaited the over 250+ guests as they joined Santa’s “reindeer” for another unforgettable trip into the WerkShop. A trendy/hip artists loft on Grand Street of New York City’s LES, reimagined with Seussian visuals and holiday treats. Upon entry, guests were greeted with custom flash tattoos and decadent chocolate truffles then the “reindeer” led the guests through the holiday immersion decorated with snowy clouds of light and intricate cities hand crafted cities. Guests were then escorted throughout the space to taste and sip on Farm-To-Table mixology such as the “Snowball Sling” and the “Snuggle Tea” among others. Soothing holiday jazz filled the air from jazz duo “Acute Inflections” while later in the evening a high-energy DJ provided the beat for this party to go all night. Over 250 guests, 50+ Food & Beverage Bloggers, 8 brands, 4 bars, 2 sexy reindeer, 1 magical holiday night.

On August 2nd, The Foundry in Long Island City was transformed for the Secret Summer NYC cocktail festival. Concocted by Rapt Affairs Boutique Events and HighLife Productions, the event made you feel like you had stumbled upon a hidden magical courtyard.
Fairies greeted you at the door, applied branded flash tattoos and escorted you inside the indoor/outdoor space. Additional characters that looked like they could have been from Neverland, danced among the crowd and others recited Shakespearean prose. Mini bottles of bubbles were handed out to attendees so they could add to the ambiance.
