Daniel Events beautifully enhanced this beach outside The Confidante Miami Beach for an L*Space product launch, produced by Bollare PR. The brand hosted a fitness class to launch its line of activewear, and each attendee received a bundle of swag that also served as their placeholder on the sand. We especially loved the custom-designed branded frame that served as a highly-taggable photo spot.

The planners and designers at Patrick J Clayton Productions wanted every guest at this Peloton launch party, hosted at Frying Pan, to feel like they had been transported to a Caribbean island – and did they ever succeed. Swings made of life preservers, wood and white lounge furniture, and more fun rentals from Taylor Creative Inc. completed the tropical look.

For this Smith & Forge hard cider launch, Gravel Experiential was way ahead of one of 2020’s biggest event trends: a 1920s theme. Brooklyn Bowl played host to guests enjoying live music from band Caveman, 1920s-style feats-of-strength games, old-school shaves for the men, and of course, plenty of opportunities to taste the brand’s new harder cider.

Kylie Jenner launched her Kylie Skin line with a perfect celebration from Mindy Weiss Party Consultants. The brand’s all-pink packaging mirrored the pink-only dress code and all-pink venue. Dancing was transformed into a new history-making affair with an all-pink, disco-themed roller skating rink/dance floor. The bathroom was just as impressive with pink tiling and a vintage bathtub filled with pink bubbles. Even the sushi rice (that’s right) was pink at this on-brand celebration.

Mindy Weiss Party Consultants does it again with the debut of Kourtney Kardashian’s lifestyle website Poosh. The brand’s tagline, “A guide to living your best life” was felt at every turn. Before stopping for a relaxing massage, guests received Poosh-provided bikinis from Onia and kicks from Stuart Weizman. After a host of wellness activities, guests cooled off with Poosh-branded water balls and hand fans, making for a relaxing on-theme event from start to finish.
