Kaye Scholer’s Last Boogie

Kaye Scholer’s Last Boogie

On December 15, 2016 Kaye Scholer hosted their last event as the Kaye Scholer LLP we all have come to know and love over the years.  This year’s holiday event was extra special as it was the last time all the employees would spread their holiday cheer together as Kaye Scholer.  On November 10, 2016  Arnold & Porter LLP and Kaye Scholer LLP announced the two firms have agreed to combine effective January 1, 2017 to become Arnold & Porter LLP.

For the final celebration Kaye Scholer hosted a 70’s themed holiday event that kept the boogie going all night.  What a great end to an awesome firm turning the page onto a bigger and brighter future.

EVENT RENTALS AND DECOR EXCLUSIVELY AT MMEINK

When planning your next event in New York, Miami, or Los Angeles, the options for decorating and styling the venue can be limiting. Do not search for the most decorated space possible because we have all the décor and rentals needed to reach the desired aesthetic for your event.

You may find yourself leaning towards a certain venue because you doubt you can outfit a venue to your exact vision.

Think again! At MMEink NOTHING is impossible.

We have been delivering hopes and dreams to each of our clients for over 20 years, pushing the boundaries and innovating concepts.

When MMEink went into business over 20 years ago, a young man had a vision of turning the event industry upside down.

He saw a stale industry with old ideals, old furniture and lack of zest and style.

His thoughts were:

“How can you spend precious dollars on an event that does not make your eyes widen and your mouth drop?”

“How can you decorate your event with the most unique and interactive props so you’re guests are intrigued and entertained?”

Since then, MMEink has worked hard over the years to bring affordable yet mesmerizing events to all types of clients. From young to old we can cater to each individual’s specific personality and style. We know both go hand in hand. We also have an in-house custom fabrication studio with master carpenters and designers working on custom furniture, props and décor for our valued clients.

Our rental inventory will excite you like a 6 year old child whose been turned out into Toy’s R Us with no parents and a black American express card!

Our inventory will have exactly what you are looking for whether you are young or old.  Some children have dreams of a themed party for their milestone celebration and we understand this. Why opt for plastic toys and props when you can have life size professional props which have been used for films?

Our inventory also includes high quality furniture that will not compromise the luxury of your event or the depth of your wallet. We have couches ranging from royal red velvet to modern white leather to rustic elegant sofas and outdoor cabana options. Many of our options are illuminated tables and furniture. One of our personal favorites is our huge fish tank bar. It is sure to illuminate your event with vibrant tropical fish swimming below perfectly created cocktails.

How about adding a New York Hot Dog cart or New York Pretzel cart to your next NYC event? Don’t stop there if you want to emulate the big apple – we have a subway backdrop with turnstiles which will really set the mood for your guests when they enter the party. Weddings are one of our favorite events to host bringing sentiment and fantasy together as one. Our luxurious rentals are sure to make your wedding look and feel like a true fairy tale.

While you are scrolling through pinterest for ideas for your next event, you are wasting precious time talking to our event professionals. We have executed ideas for events for the past 20 years, not only logistically but creatively, seeing each new project as a chance to overcome a challenge. We also do not undermine peoples ideas; you want 300 butterflies floating around while you say your vows? We surely will figure that out for you so we can gain the experience and knowledge necessary for future events and so we can see you smiling on your special day.

Please feel free to browse through our Rental inventory online and see for yourself the incredible options offered only here at MMEink!

Wow.

Your eyes light up as this exquisitely bold and savory treat is right in front of you and not in the latest issue of Bon Appetit.

The deep flavor of the warm burrata and truffle oil hit your tastebuds, as you consume a perfectly crafted treat.

Your eyes quickly dart over to a chilled glass of crimson red sangria boasting with bold fruits in a long stem glass.

(Does it get any better?)

Our exclusive venues in the Financial District are exquisite for sophisticated Holiday parties, as well as corporate conferences and galas.  We have exclusive partnerships with the Museum of American Finance and Landmark on the Park.

We offer options such as interactive social sharing photo platforms, to twitter walls, social sweepstakes, and micro site intervention. We can create the right social experience for your event.

With the Holiday season among us we are excited to be involved in so many incredible events in the Financial District this season and look forward to helping more clients plan their perfect Holiday Event. Here are some pictures from past events which left guests smiling and sentimental.

We hope you enjoy this season full of sweaters, pumpkins, elves, eggnog and most importantly –  family.
