Must Be the Money
Bidding adieu isn't always a fun thing to do...
But if it must be done, it should be done in style. When friends and family gathered to wish Chris (a hedge fund manager) a happy departure from Los Angeles to Austin, a money-themed going away party seemed quite appropriate. And knowing that he could handle a bit of poking fun at his own expense, we decided to douse the place in a bit of financial humor. From the "100 dollar bottles of wine" to the "request for financial advice" (as if he needs it) on a golden wishing tree to aptly named foods such as the "diversified portfolio" of crostini appetizers created by the fabulous caterer Nataliya Vakulenko, it was truly a money-filled event that didn't break the bank in the least bit.
Guests enjoyed tasty foods, a "Gold Standard" signature drink and even got in a few laughs when they saw the streaming screen of Chris-focused memes. It was a golden affair enough to leave anyone green with envy.
