2012 Haus und Garten Tour

We are happy to recap one of our FAVORITE yearly events:  The 2012 German Village Haus und Garten Tour.   We were thrilled to plan, for the 3rd year, this super fun event.  This event holds a special place for us because we get to work where we live, and marry professional with personal - all around - a very special experience.   

For your viewing pleasure, here is a great TOUR recap video created by Tour Co-Chair, John Clark. 

And a little and hardest working volunteers around!    


Also, we are thrilled to share photos from the talented Todd Garland who covered our largest PreTour dinner:  Capital Style's Party on the Platz, held at the German Village Meeting Haus.  PreTour is the premiere gala event in German Village and treats 600+ guests to a PRE tour of the homes open to the public the next day, followed by a cocktail party on a German Village side street, and also to a  privately hosted dinner in one of 18 properties throughout the Village.  

"Welcome to Paradise" was the theme and it truly was paradise with amazing nibbles by Barcelona, chic cocktails by our friends at Buckeye Vodka, delightful sweets by Pistacia Vera and goodies and fun galore!   If you have never attended either Tour or PreTour, we HIGHLY recommend.  Truly one of the best events in the city and we aren't just saying that because we are partial!  xx, AE

Jack Nicklaus Museum Dinner

Oh my gosh y'all!  It's been way too long since we have blogged and logging onto our poor dusty account with our pour rusty fingers (and wit, we must admit) reminds us that we have to get back into the swing of things!  

Fortunately, we have been working on all sorts of fabulous events and have lots of new, fun things to share!  Up first...this uber chic dinner at the Jack Nicklaus Museum for Nationwide as part of their Memorial Tournament client entertaining experience.  

Our "gentleman's man cave" concept transform the dining area into a warm oasis where guests dined on delicious food paired with amazing wine after the guests enjoyed a private curated tour.    

If you have ever visited the museum, you might notice the transformation!  Enjoy!

Cloche!  With special surprise inside - this reveal was so fun! 

Amazing table scape by the very talented Marti's Floral Designs, our friends from Cincinnati! 

Antique Mantel!  

We always love a little whimsy!
 Candlelight galore!

Our friend, Kevin, from Modern Barology was not only handsome, but also uber skilled as he mixed up masterpieces at our Manhattan and Old-Fashioned Bar!  

Thanks to Marti's Floral Designs for being such an incredible partner, Sodexo for creating and serving an OUT OF THIS WORLD menu, Amanda Julca (we love you!) for capturing with her amazing eye, and the AE Team for being all around to-die-for amazing.  Pearls and bow-ties forever!
