It’s the most wonderful time of the year at Muse Event Center!
Kaskaid Hospitality and Muse had a blast getting in the holiday spirit for Christmas in July last Wednesday! The event was Kaskaid Hospitality’s first company-wide event, which included Muse, CRAVE Catering Full-Service and Delivery, CRAVE Restaurant, Union, and BLVD.
According to Hanna K. August-Stöhr (Editor and Social Media Specialist for Muse and CRAVE Catering), Muse hosted around 400 guests who were able to enjoy the event space and see its potential. According to August-Stöhr, “Muse is known as a blank canvas event venue. We like to sell events by telling people that we can bring their imagination to life. This event allowed us to bring a theme to life and show our clients exactly how we could enhance our venue to suit their theme.”
“I watched guests discover areas of Muse that they had not visited before, and saw repeat clients expressing excitement about the upgrades we made. Guests not only learned about the physical capabilities of the space, but also witnessed our AV abilities, and the quality and capability of our service staff.” – Hanna K. August-Stöhr, Editor and Social Media Specialist
Talented Vendors and Partners
Christmas in July was designed to feature Muse’s capabilities in event planning, highlighting its potential as well as preferred vendors and partners. “With many of our old, new and future clients in attendance, we were able to showcase our space, food and who we were in whole. In addition, we were able to showcase so many great vendors involved to help make this happen,” said Sara Paciotti, Director of Sales for Muse and CRAVE Catering. Such partners involved included: Linen Effects, Event Lab, Avant Decor, Festivities, Rock with U, Enticing Entertainment, La Vie Photography, Studio 220 Photography, Diageo, Woodchuck USA, and Jazz Duo Jonathan Earl and Toby Lee Marshall. Regarding their partners, August-Stöhr stated: “It was really great to see them bring their creativity, most spectacular decor pieces, and enthusiasm to Muse […] Our vendors really pulled out all the stops for us!”
“A night not to be missed”
The chefs from CRAVE, CRAVE Catering, Union, and BLVD “perfected their presentation” with exquisite holiday-inspired food and specialty cocktails. The night also featured a dazzling array of jaw-dropping decor and entertainment including: aerialists, human-sized snow globes with a contortionist, a Santa on stilts complete with an elf marionette, a Bubble Bar with specialty champagnes, a jazz duo, whiskey tastings, a DJ/band infusion, and hand-crafted wooden gifts from Woodchuck USA. Muse also hosted a very special individual who greeted guests at the door: Santa Sid!
According to Paciotti, “it was a HUGE success! It was a night not to be missed!” If you didn’t make it this year, Paciotti says to mark your calendars for July 2016: Santa Claus is coming to town (again) for Christmas in July 2.0!
