I was truly blessed to have been a part of this wonderful event! Thank you Celadon & Celery for inviting me behind the scenes of the New York Junior League's Winter Ball at The Plaza Hotel. One of the honorees was singer/song writer and highly acclaimed celebrity Mary J. Blige who was one of many awarded that evening, specifically for her Leadership and Excellence in helping at-risk women in New York. Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney presented Ms. Blige with the award. Celadon & Celery's work was simply fantastic and The Plaza's ballroom never looked better. The black and white theme included gorgeous centerpiece designs that varied from lampshades with hanging white orchids and flowers in bloom where rather than a usual vase, the centerpiece was encased in a black hand bag or clutch piece. Each table had a unique design, which truly created a breathtaking vibe in The Plaza ballroom making the night feel like a chic, stylish, fairy-tale event. Owner of Celadon & Celery Bess Wyrick was there to ensure each detail was set.
