Febreze | Midtown Manhattan

Febreze hosted The #12Stinks of Christmas party and welcomed Jane Lynch and Matthew Morrison of Glee to celebrate the brand’s new holiday video. The comedians star in the piece, which brings a new twist to the holiday classic -  The Twelve Days of Christmas. 
Citizen Relations  produced the event and transformed our Midtown venue into a festive, winter wonderland. Fresh Christmas trees and colorful decorations adorned the space, including projections of additional evergreen trees and a Yule log. The commercial looped on the venue walls and live tweets were also projected, streaming posts tagged with #12stinks.
Both Jane and Matt wore their 'ugly sweaters' from the video and spoke on behalf of the brand. They were joined by fellow actors from the piece, who donned waiter costumes and circulated throughout the party with burnt turkeys on trays - adding to the event’s fragrant theme. 
Neuman’s Kitchen catered the theatric spectacle and provided tasty hors d’oeuvres and desserts, including egg nog! The catering staff even joined the fun and wore their ugly sweaters to match the spirit of the occasion.

Elle Dee | Perrier-Jouët
DJ Elle Dee helped kick off Design Miami week with Perrier-Jouët. The champagne maison hosted an exclusive party called L'Eden at the Faena Hotel Miami Beach to mark the occasion. The event celebrated Perrier-Jouët's long standing love affair with the art and design worlds.

The brand hosted the event in a penthouse, transformed into a verdant environment filled with lush greenery. It was the perfect backdrop for Elle Dee's melodic beats and a special musical performance by Andra Day.
