PartySlate Launch


PartySlate is the ultimate guide to help you discover stunning event ideas, beautiful spaces, and top event pros to make your next event more meaningful and memorable. On August 25th, more than 800 Chicago VIPs, including media, socialites and event pros celebrated the launch of PartySlate with a dynamic celebration at Moonlight Studios in Chicago’s hip River West neighborhood.

It was a memorable night for all who attended, thanks to the delicious cocktails, incredible performances, interactive entertainment, and out-of-the-box décor. The theme of the evening focused upon “Inspiration” and what drives and stimulates the imagination for events. Paulette Wolf Events (PWE) produced the event, from overall concept and theme development to on-site management and coordination of logistics. PWE managed three décor companies, six caterers, entertainment, production, sound & lighting, and worked with each of them to insure they all blended with the underlying theme.

Inside the spacious, industrial-like Moonlight Studios, some of Chicago’s top caterers partnered with some of Chicago’s best décor companies to create spectacular rooms where guests mingled, partied, and enjoyed sophisticated food and innovative cocktails. Entertainment included a gospel choir, an international drum line and a DJ with a strolling violinist from BKO BeatMix Music, along with servers on stilts, a champagne chandelier and a living red carpet from New Moon Chicago. Sound Investment filled the entire space with great sound, lighting, video, and wallscapes of strolling event images.


Superheroes vs. Villains Anniversary Party


PEAK6, an asset risk management firm, tasks PWE to reinvent their anniversary celebration each year. Every anniversary event is focused on a particular theme with surprise name entertainment that must be held in a unique space that enables constant engagement for the 600 guests. This year’s theme was Superheroes vs. Villains.

The event was held in a large raw warehouse space that began with a dramatic entrance. The entrance décor replicated alleyways and crime scenes in Batman or Spiderman films featuring spider webs, garbage cans on fire and a vintage phone booth with Clark Kent’s change of clothes to transform into Superman.

As guests checked in they received an LED wristband that was programmed green for villains and blue for heroes to set the tone upon arrival. A hanging spiderman inside New Moon’s champagne chandelier poured glasses of champagne while performing acrobatic spidy-like tricks and an authentic Batmobile was displayed as the perfect photo opportunity for guests to show off their costumes. Waitstaff passed hors d’oeuvres and specialty cocktails including dry ice smoking Mr. Freeze drinks as well as Anti-Hero IPA to keep with the theme.
