Known as the springtime affair in Washington, the Pink Tie Party stylishly marks the end of winter and the official beginning of blossom season. Attendees will be delighted and entertained by delicious food and an open bar, unique entertainment, and the friendly competition of the silent auction. The Pink Tie Party is an event not to be missed as influencers and tastemakers from DC and our region’s professional, sports, social and media communities come together to celebrate the cherry blossoms. Proceeds benefit the National Cherry Blossom Festival, Inc. a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting the beauty of nature and international friendship through year-round programs, events, and education initiatives that enhance our environment, showcase arts and culture, and build community spirit.
Attendees will enjoy spring-inspired cuisine and cocktails from top local restaurants including:
Rooster & Owl, Pow Pow, Colada Shop, Charlie Palmer Steak, Conosci, Ocean Prime, Odyssey Cruises & Elite Private Yachts, Degrees – The Ritz-Carlton Georgetown, Westend Bistro – The Ritz-Carlton Washington DC, Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse, Agora Restaurant, Bantam King, Woodward Table, Bistro Bis, The Tavern at Ivy City Smokehouse, Garrett Popcorn Shops, Sprinkles Cupcakes, The Grilled Oyster Company, and Farmers & Distillers.
The evening will also feature custom creations by local designer Mindy Lam, including unique cherry blossom jewelry and a full length gown made entirely with Lam’s signature metal lace and over 100,000 Swarvoski crystals. Attendees will have the first chance to take home components of the showpiece through the silent auction.
Guests will have the chance to see and feel what a trans-pacific flight is like at the ANA Business Class Cabin Experience, design their very own Tesla at the “Design Your Ride”station, get picture-ready with a makeup touch-up by GLAMSQUAD, make their own chocolate bark with Chouquette Chocolates and Confections, take a breathtaking video in a 360 degree video booth, and much more.
A not-to-be-missed ramen tasting with the Taste of Japan’s award-winning chefs of The Daikaya Group (Daikaya, Haikan, Bantam King) will be offered exclusively to Enhanced Experience guests from 6-7 p.m. The pre-party reception will also feature specialty beverages, a raffle, and a fashionable give-away provided by Pandora Jewelry.
