When film director Rod Lurie called me to plan a recent launch party for best selling author, Kyra Davis, I immediately knew what to "propose" because behind-the-scenes, Rod confided to me that this event would also be a surprise engagement party for Kyra.
Because the main characters in this Kyra's new book, "Binding Agreement" met in Las Vegas, I commissioned custom decks of playing cards with one of Kyra's best-selling covers as deck art. There was a duo of soup shooters (gazpacho and zucchini vichyssoise). Fresh custom florals surrounded guests as they mingles and munched. A variety of plentiful finger foods ensured something for everyone's palette. Rod wanted a menu that reflected Kyra's love for Mediterranean flavors. The Chicken Marbella bites drew raves! Delectable mini-desserts included Meyer lemon tartlets and orange madeleines. Happy guests enjoyed the event, and Kyra looked stunning as usual! Among others, Noah Wyle and girlfriend Sara Wells congratulated Kyra on her engagement and best-seller status. Votives, hurricanes, pillar candles and specialty lighting were designed to create harmony and ambiance. Another successful event!
