Bling in the Season: a Vendor Holiday Party

As of next week Antonia Christianson Events will have officially been in business for 4 years. (and a blessed 4 years at that)...So we thought that this year, we'd celebrate our anniversary, our new studio and our holiday cheer with about 100 of our vendor friends! With the help of our good friend and neighbor Ramone we threw one bang up party!

First, I'll thank everyone that helped make this event AMAZING! Marcy & Joanie from Chef By Design Catering for our fabulous food (no one went hungry), Pike Media Resource for the super fun lights and ambiance, PattiCakes, Inc for our great "CAKE POP" table, Ramone for helping foot the bill and the fabulous pictures you'll see below, RSVP Stationery for the paper products used throughout the event (including our invitations), Fluttering Flowers for the beautiful arrangements, Boardwalk Photobooth Company for the hilarity that ensued in the photo booth, Karen & Alex from Ava Clara Bridal for letting the ACE team enjoy a beautiful dress in our studio...and of course Astro Entertainment for keeping the party ROCKING! onto the fun!

 A quick snapshot of a few of the amazing images in Ramone's Studio. I LOVE his black walls! 

 The wall leading up stairs to my studio.
Love the blue "haze" when our guests entered the event! 
 Our hallway downstairs...where all the action happened.

The above 3 images are the great work of Emily Patti with PattiCakes, inc. There was not 1 cake pop left! Loved the display and the flavor was TO DIE FOR!

And now: OUR STUDIO!
 A shot of our cozy client meeting area...with walls flocked with event images, inspirational peices, and of course, pictures from my grandparents wedding. 
 This display board is next to my's filled with client stationery, inspiration and of course, pics of my boys. 
Another little nook in the studio...display shelves, media, and beautiful client pictures. 

Now...I know you really only care about the people pictures. So here are a few from the Boardwalk Photobooth Company: 
 Someone of you might recognize this beauty (and her other half)...Lindsey! ACE Office Manager, Event Staffer, and my sane half!
The One and ONLY Dave Schwartz! Photographic Genius. 

3 Hilarious Ladies...and Wedding Pros. Tiffany from Bay Creek, Stacey from the Signature and 

Caroline and Shawn...they own the photobooth and are dear friends of the ACE Team!
