Crescent Fall Celebration 2011

Held as a part of the Crescent's 25-year Silver Celebration, the annual  Crescent Fall Celebration 2011 was held in the Rosewood Crescent Fountain on Friday, September 30, 2011.   Chef tasting stations lined the outdoor courtyard as guests grazed on delicious nibbles from the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek, Rosewood Crescent Hotel, Arcodoro & Pomodoro, The Conservatory, Capital Grille, The Crescent Club, Nobu, and Palomino.

The weather couldn't have been nicer for this outdoor event. The ambiance was enhanced by live entertainment by the Dallas String Quartet and Emerald City.  I am in love with the Dallas String Quartet!! They play violins, cellos, etc but their instruments are electric and they played pop hits like Katy Perry, Adele and ABBA. They were fantastic and I am so hiring them for one of my client events soon. Here's a little snippet of their greatness:

There was also an art auction by Linearis Institute for Works on Paper, a silent auction, cork pull benefiting Les Dames d'Escoffier Dallas Scholarship Endowment Funds, fashions by Stanley Korshak, and mini spa experiences by The Spa at The Crescent.

The only thing that would have made it better was more peopleThe crowd was a little light and I'm not sure why there wasn't a better turnout. But, you know me, I'm a reality TV star magnet so I was not surprised to run into Connie Dieb from Big Rich Texas and her sister Camille Umland who is her partner in their upscale consignment shop Uptown Consignment. Just another day in the life!
