This was a spectacular event held on 4th July on a yacht in New York Harbour. It was a special birthday dinner attended by the top financial and political ‘movers and shakers’ of New York State taking advantage of America’s own birthday celebrations as a backdrop. Our client chose an atypical menu and design for the evening, opting for cool, summery and elegant.
