Over the past several years, we have had the pleasure of assistingk a friend and client with their annual client appreciation event. This year, the chosen theme for this corporate event was “Fiesta” and we knew just the venue to fit that ticket. The Parador, nestled near the Houston Medical Center, offered the ideal backdrop with its Spanish inspired architecture and multi-room setting.
As guests entered the venue, they were greeted by Begay & Associates staff and encouraged to sign-in and find their personalized name cards on our table decorated simply with Sarapes and this custom made, lit “Hola” signage.
During the first hour of the event, guests dined on Mexican inspired appetizers, listened to the background music provided by live Mariachi and had the option of sampling tequila from our manned station or taking fun photographs in the photobooth.
Once the main dining space doors were opened, guests were ushered to their seats in the large dining room space. Tables were draped in sold white linens which worked in perfect in contrast to the dark mahogany Chivari chairs. We brought in vibrant color to the space through custom florals and mini handmade pinatas by the talented designers at Lula Flora. For centerpiece height variation, we also utilized tall glass hurricanes with Spanish references on a number of the dining tables.
Prior to dinner service, guests listened to information about the financial markets and introductions by the Begay & Associates team of financial professionals. Upon completion of speeches and accolades, guests enjoyed dinner with the acompanyment of live mariachi music.
