Last Saturday was my boyfriend’s 33rd birthday. I planned a nice dinner with several of his closest friends and family living in NYC at Ai Fiori, an Italian restaurant with one Michelin Star.
It was my first time planning a fancy dinner for a group of people, but it was actually pretty fun. Even though I started calling restaurants about a month before his birthday, I was having a hard time finding a venue that could take a small party. Luckily our apartment concierge was able to help out and get us a reservation for a private dining roomat Ai Fiori.
I worked with the Ai Fiorievents coordinator on everything from the menu, menu heading, place cards, and a special birthday cake. I even had a custom cocktail created for the evening called “”The Weatherman.””
It was all of our first time dining at Ai Fiori. It was cool that we had a private room for our own little intimate party. Everyone really liked the food. I loved the wine, cocktails and dessert 🙂
Kevin had a really great time too which was the most important thing, so I would say that overall, the night was a success. Everyone at the table also had the opportunity to give a toast to Kevin, which at first I was nervous about because I hate talking in front of a group of people when all the attention is focused on me, but it ended up being a very special part of the evening. It was great hearing all the nice things that people had to say about Kevin.
Happy Birthday, Kevin! Cheers to another year of fun adventures in both your personal and professional life.
