This might be the MOST exciting post we write all year! Our inboxes are exploding, the smart phones have gone dumb, and ipads are requesting a help app or good ol’ fashion pen and paper. And quite frankly, it’s all worth it. We couldn’t be more thrilled to share all the exciting events ahead for those of you venturing out to celebrate this grand evening with us at The 1st Annual NorthDelaWHERE Happening List Blue Carpet Bash. We are in awe of YOU!
Watch as you venture off North Dupont Road and on to the Ed Oliver’s super circle – once you step foot on to the sidewalk, you just might be exposed by the papparazzi.
As you walk the grand entrance of the Club including 24 feet of Electric Blue Carpet, you’ll be flourished by the beauty of Borsello Landscaping’s honorary blue carpet entourage. Borsello was your Winner of The Most Happening Landscaping category. Go ahead do a little happening strut, we won’t tell.
Just inside, you’ll greet our MOST Happening Team at guest check in – there you’ll dot your “i’s” and cross your “t’s”. Grab your bash swag and swift off to get your Award photos by ICON DJs. Here you’ll pose on yet another Blue Carpet in front of the NDH Step & Repeat. Mix & mingle in the Wilmington Room for a bit, grab one of our signature cocktails, the infamous “BLUE Carpetini” or a refreshing “McKenzies Cider” to quickly quench your thirst.
PAUSE HERE >> If you haven’t heard, we’ve GONE BLUE! Yes, we know you might not have any blue, so be creative for goodness sakes! Think outside the box. Accessorize as you wish – even blue hair is acceptable here. Hey Ladies – Moxie’s Boutique in Newark and Morgan’s of Delaware in Wilmington will offer some mini wardrobe-overs~ whether you want to accessorize or re-dress, these ladies will have what you need, ready and waiting for you on-site. Guys we can offer you blue beads since no mens-wear retailers stepped up to meet the blue challenge.
Do we have awards? H*ll yes! You earned it, right? We will have 8×10 custom awards for all Winners and Finalists for presentation on site the night of the event. You can pick them up at the door when you arrive, pose for a photo with your award on the Blue Carpet and then pass them back to our team to hold for you while you mix and mingle. Don’t forget to pick them up again at the end of the evening. Hey FANS, we even will have a special award for you to take photos with on the Blue Carpet! Got YOU all covered.
We have an amazing array of stationary and passed Hors d’Oeuvres to satisfy every tempting palate – thanks to the amazing banquet team at Ed Oliver’s. A Philly style slider bar featuring chicken, beef steak and BBQ pulled pork with all the toppings you can imagine plus pork, chicken, seafood and some offerings for the vegetarians. We’ve got the full Monty to meet hopefully every dietary need! Cure that sweet tooth — Sherm’s Catering, Winner of Most Happening Caterer, is whipping up some amazing sweet delicacies with a special “happening” touch. Think oreos, canolis and cheesecakes…Oh my, make sure you don’t miss this table.
