When I first met 12 year old Gabe I was so impressed by what a smart, thoughtful and fun kid he was. Of course with a mom like Hilary how could he not be a great kid? He and his family had recently moved from New York to Charlotte, NC and were trying to quickly plan his event. Luckily they met Beth Mattos, owner of Creative Events, who helped them find a beautiful location, Le Meridian in Uptown Charlotte, as well as some top-notch vendors including me! Gabe loves sports, The NY Mets (not the Yankees!), and The NY Giants. His dream job-a sportscaster. I was given creative freedom on design (Yay!), and this is what I came up with.
