Kathy G’s Red Carpet Celebrity Roast

In honor of the fabulous Kathy G’s birthday, a red carpet celebrity roast was thrown! From the delectable décor to the glitzy sparkles that filled the room, the evening was a star-studded event. There were even some celebrities among the guests – Marilyn Monroe, The Blue’s Brothers and James Bond all made appearances at the event. The evening was filled with glamour and full of surprises to entertain the guests. The most glamorous of all, was Ms. Kathy G herself!

Kathy was dressed from head to toe in fun fuchsia and sparkles. Her sassy skirt and diamond studded heels and accessories gave the outfit the perfect pizzazz for a birthday girl!

The scene was set for a magical night of fabulous fun. WorkPlay Sound Stage was dressed in fuchsia, black and silver. A long red carpet, provided by Event Rentals Unlimited (ERU), ran through the room, bringing in a celebrity feel. A.G. Lighting provided fuchsia lighting, a star-lit pattern on the dance floor and a follow spotlight for all of the evening’s entertainment. The fully silver sequined and fuchsia rosette tablecloths from Nuage sat atop alternating rectangle high-boy and circular tables from Event Rentals Unlimited. ERU also provided beautiful chaivari bar stools and Lucite ghost chairs for the tables, the fuchsia lit truss bars and the fuchsia lit floating tables. The AV equipment, microphone, DJ capabilities and Photobooth were all compliments of the fabulous JAMM Entertainment. A silver glitter chandelier ice sculpture, by Chef David Bromley, adorned one of the truss bars. The design and floral was done by non-other than, KG Designs.

Kathy G & Company catered the event with a fabulous menu that combined Kathy’s Lebanese culture, Asian culture and some famous Kathy G & Company favorites.  The mini meal station had a selection of Crawfish & Shrimp Cakes, Grilled Ahi Tuna Kabobs and Sushi. The main display was a Tuscan Table that featured Marinated Kalamata Olives, Artichoke and Feta Salad, a Cheese Display with a selection of toppings, Israeli Cous Cous Salad, Turkey Pitas, Heirloom Tomato Summer Salad and a selection of Crostini, Grilled Bruschetta, Pita Chips and Homemade Parmesan Chips with Mediterranean toppings that included Tapenade, Mission Fig Puree with Herbed Goat Cheese, Hummus and more. The Lebanese table contained Rolled Grape Leaves, Lebanese Meat Pies, Baked Kibbe, Lamb Meatballs, Grilled Chicken and Conech Sausage Kabobs and Tabooli-Parsley Salad on Endive Leaves.

Some of the delectable foods were presented on Kathy G & Company’s famous “floating table.” The tabletop was made from a clear piece of Lucite that was supported by fuchsia pedestals. The “floating table” was the focal point of the room and was adorned with fabulous representations of the party – good food, fun atmosphere and lots of fuchsia and glitz.

A specialty cocktail, named after the guest of honor, was served. The “G-tini,” St. Germain, Grey Goose and splash of club soda, was adorned with a fuchsia glow stick.

After greeting her guests as they arrived, Kathy G made her grand entrance. A red Harley Davidson motorcycle sped down the red carpet with Kathy riding side saddle on the back. The motorcycle drove her right to the stage where her queen-like roast chair, from Classic Events, was waiting. The crowd cheered as the roast began. Friends from childhood and beyond, KG team members and her kids were among the roasters. Lots of laughs and sweet memories were shared.

Following the roast, Chris and Emily Bailey, of Bailey Dance Studio, performed a routine to “Time of My Life.” The couple, who are national dance competitors, were exceptional. With flawless dips and lifts, the dancer’s gracefully moved around the floor. To the crowds surprise, the pair even did the famous over-the-head lift from the movie Dirty Dancing! Then, Chris pulled Kathy onto the dance floor and the two did some cha cha moves and a marvelous dip.

The Divines cranked up the music and Kathy got people on their feet and dancing. Not long after, guests joined Marilyn Monroe in singing happy birthday to Kathy as the cake, by Olexa’ s, floated down from the ceiling. The magnificent cake was caramel in color and flavor with piping detail and diamond bands wrapped around each layer. It was topped with fuchsia feathers, sparkles and stars – it was a real show stopper!

The fun wasn’t over yet. As the cake was being passed on fuchsia lit platters, a belly dancer danced down the red carpet. The belly dancer helped bring in Kathy’s Lebanese ethnicity through her cultural music and dances. She danced to a “Happy Birthday” variation that was in both Arabic and English, among other dances. Guests jumped in to enjoy the fun – dancing the night away!

The evening was captured by Kathy’s dear friends – the wonderful Alisha Crossly Photography and Arden Photography. The awesome ProjectMedia Productions team caught the action on film from the set-up until the red carpet was rolled away. These wonderful vendors helped Kathy make memories!

Kathy G’s red carpet celebrity roast was glitz, glam, fun, fabulousity and more! This incredible event was one for the books! Thank you to all of the amazing vendors and guests who celebrated with us. What in the world are we going to do to top THAT next year??
