Event Spotlight: An Awards Night to Remember
We at BG pulled out all of the stops during one of our most recent events, the MIT ALC Awards Dinner.
This event was a huge hit, and with such a large crew geared up, we couldn’t have been more excited to give this wonderful client a really super evening.
The evening began with the set-up. Our crew arrived on scene and quickly got to work with a briefing of the timeline of events to come.
Not long after, the entire team worked together turning this great venue…
…into the beautifully arranged landscape below.
The scene was set, the crew prepped and we were more than ready to produce a night to remember.
As the evening began, all 350 guests were invited to mingle in the reception areas.
The kitchen was hard at work behind the scenes preparing the delicious cuisine that guests would enjoy later in the evening.
We passed and set up stations of hors d’oeuvres throughout the beautiful venue. Our tray-passed hors d’oeuvres menu included Butternut Squash Soup Shooters, Roasted Pumpkin Tartlets with Duck Confit, Garam Masala Chicken on Petite Papadom, and a Manchego, Sliced Fig and Almond Crostini.
Our stationary hors d’oeuvres included a Mediterranean display and an Imported and Domestic Cheese display.
As the dinner began, we invited guests to take a seat to enjoy a first course of Mixed Greens in a Ficelle Cuff Crouton. Following the salads, guests dined on a duo plate of New England Crab Cakes and Slow Braised Beef Short Rib, Sautéed Haricot Vert, Roasted Root Vegetables with Heirloom Carrots, and Assorted Artisan Rolls.
Immediately following the dinner service, guests dined on a delicious Flourless Chocolate Cherry Cake dessert.
As the dinner segment of the event wound down, guests tuned in for the presentation portion of the evening honoring those receiving awards.
It was a beautiful evening, and one that we hope the MIT ALC Awards guests won’t soon forget. We know our BG team sure won’t!
