Friendsgiving

Celebrating a lovely Friendsgiving luncheon #UpstairsAtGEARYS with William Yeoward Crystal and The Millennial Mamas.

#UpstairsAtGEARYS hosted another smashing success on November 8, 2017. Our very own second-story space was fit for the best Friendsgiving ever. We were honored to partner with The Millennial Mamas, Erin Ziering and Veena Crownholm, and William Yeoward for our first ever Friendsgiving. From a signature drink to all our holiday meal favorites, no detail was left out.

Our guests were some of our closest friends, including none other than Laurel Gallucci from Sweet Laurel Bakery, Francesca Isabella and one of our favorite moms, Angela J Kim. We were able to spend time mingling, dining on a lovely catered luncheon, and engaging with one another over sinfully delicious desserts. A few precious little ones were present at the event, truly making it a celebration of mama’s.

The fantastic #UpstairsAtGEARYS entertaining space was transformed into an elegant affair fit to celebrate the holiday season and inspire guests to #EntertainBeautifully. Delicate cream-colored linen served as a backdrop for some of our favorite dinnerware in green and golden hues. Floral design boasted brilliant fall reds, creams, whites, and pastel pinks as the centerpiece that stretch down the center of the tables surrounded by accents of William Yeoward Crystal. Last but not least, we were thrilled to have our holiday décor up to share with our friends, from Christmas trees to menorahs and ornaments all around. We were truly pleased to see that our invited guests were as in love with the ambiance as we were, snapping photos and sharing them on their social media accounts.

A decadent menu was enjoyed by all; and the plating was absolutely a work of art in and of itself. The signature drink of the afternoon was a festive Candied Apple Cocktail beautiful displayed in an array of William Yeoward Corinne stemware & barware. Each crystal stem was perfectly paired with a special beverages to make every toast even more memorable.


Our Friendsgiving began at the bar, but moved into a formal sit-down meal that was fit for royalty featuring the perfect holiday-themed menu for our event. An arugula salad mixed with heirloom melons, figs and a few other tasty ingredients started the meal off. Herb brined roasted turkey breast served with specially selected fall vegetables made for the perfect main course. While we dined, our bar was transformed from cocktail bar to dessert bar serving a delicious apple crisp streusel.

Our afternoon focused on friendship, the holidays and of course, The Millennial Mamas. We were honored to have them partner with us for such a special occasion. They’re both truly amazing women and we hope you’ll give their blog a look. Until our next #UpstairsAtGEARYS event, please enjoy the photos of our perfect Friendsgiving for some inspiration to #EntertainBeautifully this holiday season.

Yours truly,
Tom & the GEARYS team
