Our client wanted to host a client appreciation reception for one of their key clients. They were looking for an interesting venue close to downtown Houston that would offer a unique setting alongside engaging food and wine experiences.
While searching for a unique venue close to downtown Houston, we stumbled upon the Sonja Roesch Gallery, a contemporary art gallery offering a beautiful collection of striking art pieces in an indoor and outdoor space perfectly suited for our client’s group size. The Gallery was showcasing a brand new collection just after our event, so our client and their guests received a sneak preview of the art and were able to mingle with the artists on site. With the venue secured, we then curated an engaging and interactive experience for the guests. We collaborated with the caterer, A Fare Extraordinaire, to pair all wines with the food selection, and then crafted a Sensory Experience and Truffle Rolling stations for the guests. The Sensory Experience allowed for guests to explore wine through their senses with a hands-on deconstruction of the elements of wine. To top off the evening, guests were presented with chocolate ganache balls and a variety of high quality, exotic spices to mix and match to create their own truffles, with the opportunity to take them home in truffle boxes.
The reception was incredibly well received by all attendees. Guests enjoyed the hands-on experiences of the sensory elements of wine along with the creation of their own delectable chocolate truffles. The venue was the perfect setting, allowing for guests to mingle inside and out while taking in all of the wine, food, chocolate and art around them. It was an event to be repeated!
