One of New York’s Top Law Firm’s Partners with MMEink

One of New York’s Top Law Firm’s Partners with MMEink

Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP Law firm headquartered in New York teamed up with MMEink this holiday season to produce an amazing in-house holiday event at their offices located at 425 Lexington Ave, Manhattan, New York.  MMEink along with its creative team delivered an awesome transformation turning the Law Firms office space into an Alice and Wonderland themed event.  In order to execute and deliver the theme MMEink utilized a variety of in-house services to bring the theme to life.  A combination of life like props, event decor, interactive performers and interactive gaming were used to create a special experience for the Law Firms attendees.

Recreating the office space to represent an Alice and Wonderland themed party was not an easy task.  In order to animate the theme an abundance of decor and props was needed to transform the “corporate” setting into a fun play land where your imagination could run wild.  MMEink and its creative team quickly went to work, refashioning hallways using life like grass, imaginative mushrooms, colorful backdrops and unique prop sets to transcend the theme.  Interactive performers such as: The Mad Hatter, Alice, Twiddle Dee, Twiddle Dum, and The Rabbit were all used to interact with guest and create a one of a kind experience for all attendees.  Strolling performers such as interactive magicians were used to interact as well with guests.

If the life like strolling characters were not your cup of tea, a variety of interactive games were brought in for kids to partake in.  Life size chest, arts and crafts, and virtual gaming were all used to adding to the events entertainment.  Finally guests were able to receive an amazing photo opportunity with the one and only “Santa Clause” himself accompanied with supporting elf’s and characters.
