Celebrating on a Local Level

The lure of Fire Island, for many , was the ability to leave their cars , and civilization, behind. A ferry ride away, the island offered up a party Eden
for visitors and residents. A walk to any spot was withing block left less time to waste on commuting and more for having fun. Celebrating on a local level !

Now they're " all grown up, " with families, work and /or obligations.
Leaving life behind has become far more complicated. Who, to make it more
difficult, invited the economy to throw a wrench into going out and being carefree?!

Residents in a Northern Westchester communities have risen to the occasion.
They have begun to celebrate at home...well, in their hometowns.

One nail salon owner shared the secret of G.N.O. in her town. The same group of women who had once lived in NYC , spent summers on Fire Island and the Hamptons , moved to the burbs and now kept in touch, opt to leave life in the fast lane.
For any given birthday, " the girls " take over the shop for an evening.
Mani, pedi, massage, wax and a lot of laughs are shared. The local wine seller has the party pop and the sushi is delivered from only blocks away. In many cases, babysitters are no longer needed as the group is right in town. Good for the guests and great for the pocketbooks.

Charitable events have also navigated themselves away from more austere venues, such as hotels, and pitched party tents within the walls of local restaurants and inns.
An annual workout ,in the name of good health, brings out the neighbors in numbers.
Food stations are set up along side auction items. Dressing for success no longer involves a blowout , make over or little black dress." B.Y.O.B." is redefined to mean " bring your own bonsu !"

The possibilities are endless and Northern Westchester has brought the
party home for the holidays and for every other day worth celebrating.

Let us help you to find local talent on any level. Venues, catering, entertainment and more !
