In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, the residents of Staten Island were in dire need of some reason to celebrate and what better way to spread cheer than to get the holiday season started early. With only 2 weeks to plan, The Impulse Team was called in to make the dream of a Christmas Wonderland come to life for Chace’s first birthday.
Working with a venue like Snug Harbor meant needing to shoot for the stars (or in this case, the North Pole) in order to fill the room of this majestic venue complete with 45 foot ceilings! The Impulse team got to work right away on creating a magical atmosphere with a fully decorated Christmas Tree standing 20 feet tall and surrounded by 7ft tall toy soldiers, gifts galore and of course a long red carpet leading up to the stage for the other guests of honor… Santa, Mrs. Clause and their hard working elves!
With a Reindeer pulling a sleigh filled with gifts, what better way to add to the magical atmosphere than to have carolers sing while it snowed so much that the kids AND the adults were able to have a snowball fight INSIDE! There was a candy buffet for kids to fill their Christmas stockings after sitting with the elves to write letters to Santa and doing arts & crafts with Mrs. Clause. And when the incredible evening had come to an end, there were OF COURSE plenty of goody bags filled with Christmas crafts for everyone to take home to keep the cheer going long after the party had ended. Happy first birthday Chace, we can’t wait to see you again for your 2nd!
