After our numerous CUE Real Wedding posts, the girls at CUE thought it was a real treat when we received the opportunity to share with you our new CUE Real Corporate Event featuring Informatica.
This was CUE’s third annual collaboration with Informatica! We were hired not only for our planning expertise, but for our keen eye for design. The Estrela Penthouse at Le Parker Meridien NY is a beautiful space with gorgeous views. Our task was to divide the room into two: one side dedicated as a meeting space and the other for a cocktail reception.
Inspired by the event title, The Decadence, we positioned huge blocks of decadent chocolate across the reception tables as centerpieces. There was also a chocolate fountain and a delicious chocolate cake created by Nine Cakes all perfectly complemented by Warre’s Vintage Porto.
Immensely popular were miniature omelets prepared by chefs from Norma’s restaurant at Le Parker Meridian, famous for its Zillion Dollar Lobster Frittata which is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s most expensive omelet at $1000.
All of these components played into the decadent theme. Here are some photos taken throughout the event:

It was such a pleasure working with Informatica again and we look forward to working with them for years to come.
Halloween is creeping around the corner and as you work your way around the crowds, through the mess they’ve left behind in the costume store, and pick out your last minute costume, you might’ve forgotten a vital component in making Halloween such a wonderful holiday – a party! The greatest thing about this day is that you can get away with doing anything from different themes to activities to food selection. Do you want to make it kid friendly? Or scream-at-the-top-of-your-lungs scary? If you are still deciding and need some inspiration or just need some last minute tips, the CUE team is here to save the spooky.
As the tricks of planning are over, the treat of seeing your guests flow through the door shows off your dedication in making an unforgettable night. Now it’s your turn to relax and party like there’s no tomorrow!
