Event Spotlight: Tim’s Party of the Century

Tim, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) mascot, recently celebrated his 100th birthday party, a milestone that MIT deemed more than worthy of a glamorous afternoon affair.  Held at MIT’s Johnson Ice Rink Center, this 900 guest, seated and plated lunch event and party to follow were both great successes.

Take a look at the beautiful event displayed in the vibrant images below.

Lunch was served at elegantly designed tables.  The meal included a delectable combination of:

  • Grilled Rosemary Chicken with Lemon Aioli
  • Charred Leek Potatoes
  • Grilled Asparagus
  • Soy Glazed Tofu with Asian Rice Salad
  • Baby Bok Choy
  • Artisan Rolls with Butter Balls
  • Miniature Desserts with MIT logos
  • Lemonade Service in the lobby
  • Iced Tea and Water at each table
  • Coffee and Tea Service at each table

After lunch concluded, we spent six hours transforming Johnson Ice Rink into “Tim’s Party of the Century,” creating an stylish space filled with all the accents of Hollywood glitz and glam.

The event was designed to celebrate Tim, so his image and name were prominently displayed throughout the party.


We worked with a lighting designer to visually transform the Ice Rink space, utilizing pools of warm light to highlight different event elements.

Guests enjoyed a Hollywood-style red carpet, a VIP area, dramatic diamond décor throughout the event, and even a 1000 birthday cupcake display.

The event was a great success, and everyone in attendance had a wonderful time.
