W Hotels Worldwide hosted an Amsterdam-theme event in New York on August 18. To celebrate the fall 2015 opening of the W Amsterdam Hotel, the brand hosted a boat party aboard the wooden schooner Grand Banks, a choice of venue that was inspired by the European city's famous canals.

To riff off the Hudson River locale, the 240-guest event had a nautical vibe that infused everything from the snack selections to the decor. Here's a peek inside the private function, which was produced by BMF Media and can inspire ideas for Labor Day parties and other end-of-summer celebrations.
