Now on to the party! They recently moved into an amazing loft space in Nolita and instead of doing a typical holiday party they wanted to have more of a "loft-warming" soiree and christen the space. I helped pickup and carry a bunch of the materials as well as put together and arrange all the food platters. It was a blast for me- you know how much I love to entertain!
Check out the space- isn't it amazing?! It's an old warehouse building with a freight elevator. I took this shot from the upstairs that houses the kitchen and lounge-like eating area with a couch.
This was such a neat idea for a guest book. It's just large sheets of craft paper and a tall vase for guests to leave their business card.
All of the employees are so creative. We had used every single bowl in the office to hold chips and snacks so one clever fellow ended up making a festive pyramid out of the clementines, no bowl necessary! I loved the pop of color it added and was a sweet gesture for guests to grab one on the way out if they wanted.
Now here's the party getting started...
The large prints framed in gallery-esque frames were hung all along the long right wall of the space in between each set of windows. They looked so great and easily became a conversation starter between guests at each food station.
The entire space is very laid back and comfortable not only for Purpose peeps but their guests too. It really proves that a laid-back atmosphere doesn't encourage laziness because these people work their butts off and are truly brilliant!
These are my favorite pieces. Scattered around the office there are large old metal drawer units. So great for storage and I love how they offset the whole white modern vibe. They really compliment the old brick and wood floors in the space.
It's really nice that there are plants everywhere. It's really important to add some green and make a otherwise cold & old loft space alive and inviting. I also like the unexpectedness of some of the decor in the space, especially this wooden bear. He is so cool and random, I love it!
