Salsa Soiree | Las Vegas Chapter Event 05.02.18

WIPA Las Vegas brought in bright colors and Mexican influences for the second quarterly meeting of 2018, a Salsa Soiree. Upon arrival, guests were welcomed with to the brand new event venue Rhythms Event Center with a private valet service provided by Las Vegas Parking. After checking in on the patio, guests imbibed in tray-passed specialty cocktails from the mixologists of Rhythms Event Center, including the Despasito and the Cabeza Picante, and nibbled on passed bites from Border Grill Forum Shops, including green corn tamale cones, ciudad chicken skewers and guacamole tostaditos. While mixing and mingling, the photo booth from Shutterbooth was packed with fun and excitement.
 
The dramatic luncheon scene was set in three long, dark wood kings tables adorned with velvet runners and ornate chairs from RSVP Party Rentals. Gold charger plates, specialty china and glassware were provided by Rebel Party Rentals. Place settings were topped with candy favors from Divine Sugar and a unique cloth napkin printed with the event menu, provided by the creative and talented Meldeen Ink. The Mexican-inspired colorful hues of fuchsia, red, and terra cotta were brought in with stunning floral arrangements, accenting gold votives and cute mini cactus created by Naakiti Floral. The look was completed with low hanging crystal chandeliers from LED Unplugged.
 
Guests took their seats and snacked on chips and a salsa trio while enjoying salsa dance performances from Rhythms. Dancing was followed by education from local advertising gurus R&R Partners, who discussed the ins and outs of social media with their presentation titled “Social Publishing Best Practices.” After our education was completed, guests were treated to lunch from Border Grill Forum Shops, including a gourmet taco station, while music was played by the Lucky Devils Band. Closing out the luncheon, guests indulged in delicious Rolled Ice Cream that was rolled to order in fun flavors.
 
Our wonderful Salsa Soiree was documented by Fabio & Adri Photography and New Romantix Videography.
