We are going through some transitions (it’s my favorite word these days)…changes and tweaks that will help make this site the best it can be. Most importantly the addition of the vendors and venues section we are currently working on. I love designing events and have had the opportunity of creating and producing them with some of the absolute best in the NY Metropolitan area. The experience I have gained working on over 400 parties has been an incredible learning experience and gift that I try not to ever take for granted.That’s actually what first got me inspired to start this blog in the first place. I wanted to share that knowledge and information not only with my Ali Barone Events clients but with anyone whose interested by creating a very well edited site where people can visit and know that not only these vendors and venues are great and have excellent reputations but that I PERSONALLY have worked with them. In doing so I have experienced the level of, service, professionalism and success I expect at each and every event with my own clients. It’s a VERY large sea of fish out there in the NY Metro area. I PROMISE I will help you hook the best of the best!
I was honored to be featured as a person of interest in the August/September issue of Orange Magazine and recognized for both my professional achievements as well as my personal commitment to volunteering in my community. My husband and I threw an intimate, home spun fundraiser with a touch Moroccan flair that raised money for a local charity. We invited a handful of guests to come “Party for a Purpose”, enjoy local food and spirits and relax on a beautiful Sunday afternoon at our home. Although, I am fairly certain my husband was ready to kill me when I handed him a list of things he had to finish in the days leading up to the event but all the hard worked paid off. It was truly a gift to enjoy a warm, afternoon with friends all while lending a helping hand to our community. Psst…psst…party for a purpose…pass it on 🙂
I love this time of year for so many reasons. One of my favorite things to do is visit the local apple orchards and farm stands for freshly harvested apples. We have so many varieties here in NY that the colors, shapes, sizes and tastes vary quite a bit . But one thing remains the same. They are as pretty to decorate with as they are to eat!
