2015 International Special Events Society PACE Awards

Three weeks ago, Sarah and I had the pleasure of attending the 2015 PACE Awards, put on by the ISES Indiana chapter. The awards recognize event industry professionals all across the city for the events they created, planned, managed and executed during the year.

The event took place at the Scottish Rite Cathedral, and thanks to Detail & Design, BBJ Linens, Evans Audio Visual, A Classic Party Rental, and Cort Furniture, the space was transformed!

Every little detail was meticulously put together for an overall stunning effect! Here were some of our favorites, including wrapping the cocktail table linens, the hanging lights, the innovative centerpieces, and fun lounge areas.

Encore Entertainment provided the DJ, who rocked the dance floor later in the evening, and the Cocktail Sax Jazz Band performed as well.

There are no words for how good of a show Thomas Catering of Distinction put on! From the appetizers to dessert to drinks, we couldn’t get enough. A few favorites included the flash frozen lemon dressing over a couscous salad, beer shandy candies in edible wrappers, the specialty cocktail (Skittles vodka, Sprite, dry ice, and accented with a glowstick), mini seafood boils, corndog muffins, and pie nachos!

We loved the opportunity to celebrate the successes of some of our preferred vendors, including: IndyVisual, Kristen Hornberger Photography, and JP Parker Flowers. And Congratulations to ALL of the winners!

Also, a shout out to Mike, one of the Thomas bartenders, for the fun, fruity drink he created for me that became quite the hit with the other guests!

Until next time,

Rachelle
