A Birthday to Remember

November 29, 2016Susan Young

The Arts Council of Indianapolis’ Gallery 924 (924 N. Pennsylvania Street, Indianapolis) was the setting for an intimate gathering for one of our clients who was celebrating her 70th birthday. The Vernick family wanted a small but extravagant birthday party for Mrs. Vernick with only five guests in attendance. We created the perfect atmosphere for this affair, choosing items that we would want to have if it were our own birthday.

Modern Décor

The décor featured white dupioni silk tablecloths, ghost Chavari chairs and contemporary plating, so as not to overshadow the colorful, contemporary art on the gallery walls.

To complement the extravagant tablescape and elegant surroundings, guests were treated to a seven-course meal fit for royalty:


Chilled Beet Soup with Dill Cream

Well-Received Feedback

Seeing the reactions of our customers and their guests when they experience one of our catered events is one of the best parts of our jobs. The guest of honor’s daughter, who coordinated the event, had this to say about the party: “I just wanted to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for helping me put together a wonderful 70th birthday celebration for my Mom. She was blown out of the water with everything that happened and I have you all to thank for it!”
