At a "Bubbly Bar," servers mixed sparkling wine with house-made rhubarb, cranberry, and orange bitters. Colorful streamers formed a festive backdrop for the bar. A Perfect Event handled decor.

Another station offered "Adult Snow Cones" by Jo Snow. The icy, boozy snacks came in flavors such as ginger with whiskey and strawberry-mint-balsamic with vodka.
Shirtless male models were stamped with temporary glow-in-the-dark tattoos that bore the event's hashtag: #HubStudioOpen.
Pure Kitchen Catering offered number of food stations with snacks inspired by global street fare. Items included mini falafels topped with pickled onions.
In the summer-inspired area, the Flower Firm provided flowers that evoked a tropical climate. The arrangements were placed on glass tabletops that were covered with sand and seashells.
The "summer" section also had a tiki bar doling out "Puka Punch." Guests sipped fruity, rum-based cocktails in an area decked with miniature palm trees, umbrellas, lounge furniture, and Astroturf.
The bash featured four areas, each inspired by a different season. The winter-theme area featured an indoor skating rink crowned with strings of café lights. The portable, synthetic ice rink was supplied by Clowning Around & Celebration Authority. Guests were invited to skate.
There was also a Hot Toddy Bar in the winter-theme area. Guests could fill Pure Kitchen Catering branded mugs with the hot drink and bring the mugs home as keepsake gifts.
The event also featured a pop-up restaurant, catered by Pure Kitchen Catering. Guests made reservations as they arrived, and dinners were served to a new set of guests every 30 minutes. The four-course meals were served family style and offered items such as pimento cheese arancini paired with Lagunitas beer; curry kale salad with red grapes and roasted vegetable salad paired with white wine; and smoked duck breast served with red wine.
Toni Patisserie and Cafe was one of several vendors to offer sweet treats. Cookies were housed in old-fashioned apothecary jars on antique mirrored trays, and gilded and towering cakes were on display.
From bright lighting to lush velvet furniture to vivid cocktails, these ideas make it easy to add the coral color into upcoming events.
