Last night I was fortunate to be invited to the Four Seasons Hotel for their annual holiday evening of appreciation and gift giving for “Toys for Tots”. Representatives from the Marine Corp, who help distribute the toys to boys and girls, spoke about the importance of making the effort for these children in need. All of us admittedly look forward each year to the wonderful food and decor which is overseen by Jennifer Rebello, the director of catering. Every year Jennifer and the culinary staff out do themselves. This year there was a sampling of wonderful tastes from around the world. The quality of the food, service, and presentation is always top notch. This year, the room was laid out with food stations ringing the perimeter of the ballroom with lounge seating in the middle. Very large golden vases filled with white branches and crystal chained icicles acted as centerpieces on food stations and the center focal point of the room. Lighting from the “Lighter Side” Keith Brunsmann and his staff of designers made the room sparkle from top to bottom creating layers of light and subtle colors to enhance the elegant wall coverings and neutral furniture pieces. The evening was both a visual and a tummy delight.
Job well done!!
