Recap: Pink Happy Hour at The Julian

Last Thursday I had the opportunity to host a pink happy hour at The Julian at Fair Lakes in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month.  The night consisted of pink desserts including cake pops, chocolate covered Oreos, dipped pretzels, cupcakes and a signature Pink Hope cocktail.  

I had a great time meeting their residents + supporting the fight against breast cancer!

It was a pleasure working with this property + I look forward to more events in the future!


Recap: Trivia Night at Station House 

Yesterday I had the opportunity to host a ‘Trivia Night’ themed happy hour at Station House.  It was loads of fun!

Our menu for the evening consisted of Korean BBQ wontons, chipotle chicken salad cups + whipped Oreo mousse dessert cups.  Our signature drink was our popular Frozen Berry Lemonade.

The fun really got started when the trivia game began.  Attendees were asked to split into groups of four to compete against other teams for some prizes.  The property gave away gift cards as well as a grand prize, which was 1/2 off their party room rental fee.  We had 7 teams in total that competed + all were filled with residents who just met one another.  I love bringing strangers together!

Here are a few photos from the event:

After a series of tie breaker questions, Team Big 10 came out victorious + took home the prizes!

I had such a good time with the staff (Corzann was amazing!) and residents of the property + hope to be back soon!

Recap: Paint + Sip Event at Camden South Capitol

Paint + Sip events have become my favorite events to hosts!  When Camden South Capitol reached out to me to host a Paint + Sip for their residents I was thrilled!  They have such a great property and Diana, the Assistant Manager, was so pleasant to work with.

They requested a Washington-themed piece to paint + we delivered with our cherry blossom + Washington monument painting.  Our instructor, Sarah, showed residents how to channel their inner Picassos + recreate our masterpiece.

Here are a few pictures from the event:

The best thing about Paint + Sip events is that no two canvases look the same when painted.  It’s all about individuality!

I look forward to hosting more events with Camden in the future!

Recap: Tiki Happy Hour at 77H

I was ready for warmer weather to arrive just so I could start hosting outdoor happy hour events!  Therefore, I was excited when 77H contacted me about booking an outdoor happy hour for their residents.  They didn’t have a theme in mind so I opted for a tiki themed event.  Tiki & luau parties have been a hit for my clients this season so I decided to stick with the trend.

The day of the event was the hottest of the season, but that didn’t stop me + my team from bringing their residents a fabulous experience!  The menu consisted of Aloha sliders (ground turkey sliders topped with pineapple salsa), Chicken + Pineapple Skewers + Sand Cups (whipped cheesecake mousse cups topped with crumbled Nilla wafers + an umbrella) for dessert.  Check out some photos from the fun-filled event:

You’ve got to love an event where residents can lounge by the pool!

Thank you to the staff + residents at 77H for braving the heat with me!  I love forward to hosting more events with this fab property in the future!


Recap: Canvases + Cocktails Event at Heritage Apartments

Last month I had the pleasure of returning to Heritage at Silver Spring to host a Canvases + Cocktails event (my version of a paint and sip)!  Guests were given mini canvases and easels and were asked to use their imagination to create their own masterpieces.  We sipped on my signature frozen berry cocktails + even played a bit of ‘Small Talk’.  I made it competition style by telling all guests that the best painting would receive a grand prize.  Because it was so hard to choose just one, we ended up with 3 winners!

Take a look at pictures from this fun-filled event!





Some of the amazing artwork that residents produced!

I had such a great time hosting this Canvases + Cocktails event and I look forward to returning to Heritage at Silver Spring in the future!

Recap: Resident Appreciation Week at Avery Row!

Last week I had the pleasure of hosting two events at Avery Row for their resident appreciation week!  Avery Row is a beautiful luxury apartment residence located in Arlington, VA.  I held a fab happy hour there last month + was excited when they called me back to entertain their residents again.

The first event was a Sunday brunch, but of course I made it TBR style.  We had a menu that consisted of Maple Bacon Pancake bites, Assorted Mini Quiches, Mini Croissants w/ Chipotle Chicken Salad + Strawberry Bellinis to wash it all down!

Strawberry bellinis | Who doesn’t love a good brunch cocktail?

It was great to meet their residents!

Maple bacon pancake bites.  Yum!

Even babies couldn’t resist the yummy bites!

The next event was a luau-themed happy hour event.  We turned the room into a tiki bar + provided a menu with items such as Asian Lettuce Wraps, Hawaiin BBQ Pulled Chicken Sliders, Whipped Cheesecake Sand Cups + a delicious Luau punch!


Welcome to Hawaii!

Residents got lei’d upon their arrival to join in on the fun!

Each Whipped Cheesecake Sand Cup was adorned with these tiny umbrellas.  How cute!

I had a great time celebrating resident appreciation week at Avery Row + look forward to returning in the future for more fun fetes!

Recap: Wine Tasting at West Broad 

On March 23 I had the opportunity to host a wine tasting at West Broad.  This newly opened property is FAB!  I was wowed by their community room, which had a connecting sky deck.  Since the property just opened, we hosted a wine tasting for their new residents, and the event served as an open house for prospective residents.  The menu consisted of assorted cheeses, chocolate covered strawberries, berry sangria + wine, of course!

I loved meeting both their new and pending residents + interacting with their wonderful staff.

Check out a few photos from the event:


The property had so many fireplaces, which added to the ambiance of the event.  It was such a cozy + warm vibe!  

It was a time for residents to mingle with their neighbors + check out all the amenities that their new residence had to offer.  

Because it was such a beautiful day, we headed outside to play my custom ‘Small Talk’ game.  This helped residents to get to know each other better with questions ranging from “Where’s the best place to go for happy hour?” + “Where’s the best dry cleaners?”

It was such a pleasure to host the first event at this property + I look forward to returning for more events in the future!

Recap: Happy Hour at The Encore

On Thursday, March 24 I had the pleasure of hosting a happy hour event for the residents of The Encore.  I had such a good time engaging with the residents over a menu of jerk chicken wings, Asian lettuce wraps, Korean BBQ wontons, chipotle chicken salad on baguettes + vanilla mousse cups.  Our signature cocktails of the evening were my Frozen Berry Lemonade + Strawberry Limeade Cooler.  The evening was filled with giveaways where residents could win money off of their rent + other fun prizes!

I had tons of fun hosting the event at this property + the residents were so interactive!  Check out some photos from the event:

Recap: St. Patrick’s Day Happy Hour at The Maxwell

On Thursday I had the opportunity to host a St. Patrick’s Day happy hour event at The Maxwell.  I was looking forward to hosting an event at this property because it is just so fabulous!  The lobby is so stylish and modern + their amenities are great for residents.  Plus, they’re conveniently located in Arlington, VA.

Residents had the opportunity to celebrate the holiday with us by sipping on my signature Shamrock Punch + menu of delicious desserts that included Leprechaun Trifles, Guinness Brownie Bites + Pot o’ Gold Cookie Cups.  We played my custom ‘Small Talk’ game + shared lots of laughs.  It was a great night!

Check out photos from the event:


The property had a contest where residents could win a prize for the best St. Patrick’s Day costume.  KJ the pregnant Leprechaun provided lots of laughs!

Recap: Happy Hour at The George

On February 25 I had the pleasure of hosting a Happy Hour at Home event at The George.  This Wheaton, MD apartment home makes you feel like you’ve entered into a stylish boutique hotel with its hot pink entrance and modern decor.  The penthouse community room follows this motif with its modern design and layout.  It’s so cute up there!

The event was a cocktail party for residents that renewed their lease.  We ate a delicious menu of appetizers such as Korean BBQ Wontons, Chipotle Chicken Salad on Baguettes, Caprese Salad Bites + Vanilla Mousse Cups.  Our signature cocktail of the evening was my popular Frozen Berry Lemonade.  The residents loved it all!
