Extra! Extra! Read All About It! Los Angeles natives get in a New York state of mind for charity.
For two nights the catering and design firm of Someone’s in the Kitchen transformed the home of a Bel Air philanthropist into events that paid homage to the city’s big yellow taxis.
The client asked Joann Roth-Oseary, president of Someone’s in the Kitchen, to create two events for 225 guests each night. The first, entitled A Night at the Cabaret, was held for the Los Angeles Music Center, and the second, held for the American Friends of the Hebrew University, was called Starry, Starry Night. The New York theme came from the entertainment arranged by the client.
It was a theme that Someone’s in the Kitchen’s designer Cheryl Fish ran with. She created long tables 40 that were dressed in the colors of New York’s famed Checkered Cabs. With waitstaff dressed as cabbies, guests were truly “transported” into the heart of the city!
In Los Angeles, the hostess surrounded by Someone’s in the Kitchen’s “New York” staff.
Guest were given tickets to appear by staff dressed as New York police and escorted (without the handcuffs) to their seats at tables named after the most iconic and recognized streets of New York: 5th Avenue, Avenue of the Americas, and Madison Avenue.
Just like New York, which never fails to reveal charming details amid its hustle and bustle, Someone’s in the Kitchen made sure that every detail of these events was just as charming. From a New York work force as the waitstaff, to serving pizza as an appetizer, down to the mini cabs and apples as napkin ring holders, the essence and heart of New York was ever-present for two unforgettable nights in Los Angeles.
