Halloween Party, ISES Hollywood Style!

ISES had their monthly meeting in October and it was a Hollywood Halloween-themed party!
Coffin Tables...a nice touch!
Held at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood, it was the perfect place for ISES members to dress in their costumed best, play games, eat orange-white chocolate from Chocolate Delights, and dance the night away! Doyle Borden from My Flower Guy designed all the flowers and decor of the event, including the overall design, which was a perfect mix of Halloween at a vintage Hollywood hotel!Met some very nice people, including Kevin Viner who did an amazing magic trick for us that involved lemons that I'd never seen before, a talking photobooth from E-pod Events, and I even got a tarot card reading from Susanna with Leonard Neil productions.
"Marilyn Monroe" from Champagne Creative Group shared her goodies at the party.
I always love attending ISES events because you get to see familiar faces and brand new faces, and everyone is just so talented! I plan on lunching with Erika from An Catering, attending a show at the Magic Castle this week for Andrew Goldenhersh, and I'll be volunteering at the "Meet the Masters" event in November! The life of an event planner is always busy!

But definitely the best part of the night was the costume contest and the scavenger hunt. Congrats to Jeremy for having that competitive spirit and to everyone who dressed up for the occasion!
