A Spirited Evening for the Mexic-Arte Museum
The Catrina Ball, a black tie concept event inspired by Mexico’s beloved La Catrina, debuted in grand fashion at the Four Seasons and spirits were soaring! Guests were encouraged to don Calavera Catrina (Day of the Dead) make-up, lush rose crowns, and other themed couture. Cocktail hour offered Patrón libations and massive shadow boxes with "living doll" Catrinas. Dinner hour celebrated the Mexic-Arte Museum’s Young Latino Artists and Civic Leader Mary Ann Thompson Frenk with performances by Patricia Vonne and a jaw-dropping runway show by Midi Soliz. La fiesta continued after dinner on the dance floor with latin jazz and salsa by The Brew and house beats by DJ Adriana Lucia from Monterrey, MX.

"Brooke - your attention to detail is like no other, and those details are what make the event! I can't tell you how many comments I heard about how gorgeous the red rosette linens were; how cool/fun the shadow boxes were; how amazing the band was - people would not stop dancing and they kept asking for more, even after the band was done playing!! The Catrina Ball logo on the dessert looked gorgeous -and those place cards that you HAND MADE...are you kidding me?! I. CAN’T. EVEN. Seriously, standing ovation!"
