Celestial Moon Masquerade Dinner Party
Under The Moonlight
REPORTER: Cortnie Fausner

The universe is a wondrous place full of the unknown, and as we enter 2016, we celebrate entering into 365 days masked in mystery. We don't know what the year ahead holds for us, and that is the beauty of the New Years Eve celebration. We dream of the unimaginable and the unthinkable as we celebrate under the moon at midnight with confetti, champagne and wild dance parties. NYE celebrations are for the dreamers and believers.  

Now, imagine hosting a 'Masquerade on the Moon Dinner Party!'. You create a celestial, sparkling, star-lit flooded scene with gemstones, geodes, ivory quartz and small touches of glistening gold. You will serve up star caviar appetizers and magical chocolate moon pies for dessert over a dinner table flooded with dripping, ivory taper candles. Maybe you even invite a fortune teller or an astrologist to give your guests a fun peek into the new year!

The dress code? Glittering sequined dresses, faux fur jackets, funky white sneakers, heels and moon boots perhaps? The quirkier and sparklier the better. You shimmer and shake under the shiny mirrored squares of a disco ball before dinner. You all sit down for a feast at your fantasy-filled dinner table, put on your silly masks and the moon masquerade begins.

Late last year we were invited to set up the wine station for an event hosted by Be Inspired PR called Tassels and Tastemakers. It was their 3rd event in Los Angeles "to bring together the best in the wedding industry from all over the country and media for one amazing night of dancing, drinks and bites and networking!"  The event was held at one of our venue members, a raw warehouse space in Culver City, California called Smoky Hollow Studios.

We may have mentioned a few times that our adventure with The Venue Report originally began a decade ago, with our event planning career. We came to the quick realization that finding a good celebration location was no easy feat! Sooooo... as we begin 2015 we also share a very special wedding. This nature, Darwin and science-inspired soiree was the very last wedding we ever designed before becoming full time Venue Reporters. We were so fortunate to have the event planning gods smiling down on us for our last event design adventure. We also had a cool-as-cucumber-couple (Cindy and Chris) and their darling dog Dumpling. To put the proverbial cherry on top, this wedding wingding was hosted at uber cool venue Carondelet House.

A few months ago we were invited by The Wedding Artists Collective (a talented crew of photographers) to organize a venue tour in Palm SpringsCalifornia.  Any place with over 350 days of sunshine, endless blue skies and a mecca of Mid-Century Modern homes is our kinda place. Hollywood’s playground never gets old. Hillary Angel from Visit Palm Springs was our tour operator and planner extraordinaire.

REPORTER: Cortnie Fausner

Last week we headed out to the desert of Palm Springs for some venues, fun and sun.  Hollywood's playground never gets old. Where else can you frolic where legendary celebs like Frank Sinatra & Marilyn Monroe have also frolicked in a bygone era?! Following are some of our Instagram sneaks and field notes about our caftan clad adventure. Yep, we have a caftan obsession (there truly is nothing more comfortable to wear while eating and drinking). We also love cocktails (duh) and because each venue had a pool we threw our love for cannonballs into the mix. Thus our theme Cocktails, Caftans & Cannonballs was born. The full feature and venue details coming soon, but following are some peeks to wet your venue loving whistle. Tweet tweet!
