A 100 Year Aspen Birthday Celebration

This passed June we had the pleasure of helping a wonderful husband and wife celebrate their 50th birthdays! The party was given a tagline of the “100-Year Celebration.” A 100-year celebration was held over 3 days consisting of a welcome lunch atop Aspen Mountain, an elegant Baldwin Gallery dinner, Mexican fiesta luncheon at the Hotel Jerome, and a ho-down for the books at Chaparral Ranch. With clients like these, and a variety of venues and themes, we really were able to add our own creative ideas and touches. Dream job!

We were fortunate enough to use one of our favorite and most elegant venues, The Baldwin Gallery, located right in downtown Aspen.  With open clean spaces, it makes a perfect canvas for long tables, elegant settings, and clinking glasses.

The Hotel Jerome is timeless.

With it's exceptional interior and "secret garden" like exterior, it makes for the perfect venue for an intimate crowd.  We had a mexican luncheon catered by the Hotel Jerome's staff and although the rain came, the full belly's and flowing margarita's kept everyone in the festive spirit!

Chaparral Ranch is out of a story book.  Rolling fields, reflective lakes, gorgeous horse barns, we couldn't ask for a better "office" for the day.  Veuve Clicquot had their traveling "mail" truck parked and keeping the bubbly popping.  Caribou Club had guests swooning over dinner, and Elan Artist's "Project M" got them of their feet and shaking off that delectable pie.
