What do you get when you mix 6 handles of tequila, 48 bottles of premium wine, 144 bottles of premium beer, enough gourmet app’s to feed an army, and a few hundred seductive desserts? Another classic “Maler” party of course! Seriously, we love a good party and with the release of our “Bad Obsession” inspirational shoot we decided it was time to celebrate another amazing year with those who made it all possible (and some new faces as well). While we are far from being professional party planners, we had so much fun putting this together. With a little – scratch that… a TON of help from our friends, things came together and the event itself was so much more than we could have ever imagined. A special thanks to our editor Ashley Abel who snapped a bunch of these photos while we were mingling (and trying to relax).
While we normally list vendors in a separate section (which we still did), we wanted to personally thank a few people who made this event possible. So here it goes… to Jonathan and Aaron from JA2M… you guys killed it! You are both so talented and you made the party. We cannot wait to see you perform live again! Billy from Pasta Cosi… thank you so much for the amazing spread of food, extra party supplies, and for being so damn supportive. You’re more than a friend. You’re family. People are still raving about how good the food was! (P.S. can you book JA2M already?) Matt & Matt from Do Vallé… thank you so much for providing the amazing wine selection (and super fun pre-tasting session). Keep your warehouse locked up… after spoiling us with Frank Family we are addicted! Brenda from Sugar Bakery… thank you so much for the custom designed cupcakes! The black wrappers were perfect and guests could not stop eating them! How could they not?! Hope from JCakes… the cake you designed was killer and the shooters were a hit. The next day we came in to clean up and realized that every single shooter was gone?! Gluttons! Fritz and Danielle from Choclopologie… thank you so much for the chocolates and favors. People still cannot stop talking about how delicious they were. We had an extremely hard time sharing. Michael from Freshbev… thank you so much for hooking us up with the RIPE margarita mix. You put the signature in the cocktail. Nina… you were hands down the best bartender. The next day I received quite a few texts from people who wanted to personally thank you for their hangovers. Christian and Christina… you guys rock! Thank you so much for keeping the bar stocked, people fed and for keeping the place clean. And finally… to our guests. We hope that you had a great time and thank you for all your support! We can’t wait to do it again! Here’s to another great year!
Michael & Marcie
