It was a beautiful evening on the green at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Washington DC to take in a movie outdoors. Tiffany Gannon, Director of Catering, and the Mandarin staff hosted wedding and event planners to a screening of the all-time favorite 'Pretty Woman' complete with popcorn bar, passed sliders, boxed candy, and signature drinks. Everyone received a monogrammed Mandarin Oriental blanket to snuggle in and take home - it was a perfect, fun evening!
Guests were introduced to newly appointed General Manager Adriaan Radder who recently held that position at the Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas.
There were incredible prizes: a weekend stay in the Mandarin Oriental Presidential suite, won by Amie Dominick of A. Dominick Events; a 3-night stay at the Mandarin Oriental Bermuda, won by Christine Godsey, of Engaging Affairs; and a pair of Christian Louboutin heels, won by Sandi Hoffman, of Sandi Hoffman Special Events. (A video on Christian Louboutin and his designer shoes was played before the movie!)
Twinkling lights hung overhead and the crescent moon shined brightly as everyone made themselves at home on sectional sofas to catch up with each other and watch the movie. Tiffany hinted that movie night may become an annual event...we can only hope so!
