20 Years of Celebrations Beyond Expectations

Last week, our company marked a significant milestone as we gathered at the luxurious St. Regis in New York City to celebrate our 20th anniversary in grand Edwardian fashion. 

Thanks to Design House Decor, the lavish penthouse and ballroom were adorned with thousands of intricate rose floral, crystal chandeliers, ornate furniture, and hand-painted models, creating a truly immersive Edwardian experience and transporting guests back to the glamour of the early 20th century.

The evening commenced with The St. Regis staff displaying a theatrical flair with their traditional champagne sabering display, mesmerizing guests and setting the tone for an evening filled with elegance and surprises. A heartfelt champagne toast by our CEO, Sonal, reflecting on our company’s journey and acknowledging the dedication of our vendors, our team members, and our couples who showed up to support and celebrate with us.

The incredible culinary delights, curated by the talented Chef Gaurav and his team at CGA at The St. Regis, showcased classic dishes, Indian and Middle Eastern, Italian from the Edwardian era, delighting guests with a gastronomic journey through time.

Live music from The Jordan Khan Orchestra filled the air, creating an enchanting ambiance as guests mingled, danced, and reveled in the nostalgic charm of the era. The dance floor came alive, with family, friends, couples, and vendors showcasing their best Edwardian dance moves, adding a touch of sophistication to the celebration.

Just when the evening seemed perfect, a surprise awaited everyone as the legendary 50 Cent took the stage, delivering a show-stopping performance that captivated the entire room. His electrifying set had guests on their feet, dancing and singing along to his iconic hits, creating an unforgettable moment that fused the past with the present in a remarkable way.

As the night concluded, guests departed with personalized Jo Malone souvenirs, a tangible reminder of a magical evening filled with celebration, camaraderie, and surprises. 

In closing, the Edwardian-themed company celebration at The St. Regis NYC, featuring a surprise performance by 50 Cent, was a truly memorable affair, offering a perfect blend of elegance, entertainment, and gratitude. Here’s to another 20 years of continued success, growth, and shared experiences as we move forward together, creating many more Celebrations Beyond Expectations®
