Flagger Force, an industry leader in safety traffic control services in the Mid-Atlantic Region, celebrates its employees with a huge bash with a different company event theme, every year, that’s out of this world.
Flagger Force’s Spacey Company Event Theme
The JDK Group has hosted their events before, so they’re nothing alien to us. In fact, Flagger Force’s imagination is part of why their company event themes always end up so creative and fun!
This year, the company let us turn their corporate office, in Hummelstown, Pa., into a futuristic, colorful space based on… space!
The event planning stars of the event- Senior Event Specialist, Emma Santana, and Event Specialist, Sarah King. They both worked their magic to make sure to include every celestial detail. Landon Wise Photography took photos that caught the vibrancy of the event and company event theme.
The evening event, named Mission XV, took place on December 2nd and had over 200 guests in attendance. It marked a 15-year odyssey for the traffic control company. Here’s the recap of the party, from liftoff to landing.
The colorful corporate office was a sight to see even from the outside. The illuminated entranceway hinted at the vivid colors that might be inside. Stray Lights Production provided all of the lighting for the colorful event.
Flagger Force employees had to pass through two glowing columns to get to the party. But, these were only a small part of the backdrops and stage designs that brought the atmosphere to the corporate space.
Models dressed in silver space suits sent welcoming transmissions to guests, wearing iPads, as they trekked in. Once inside, a brilliant wash of color burst from each section of the office building.
Lights, shaped like different planets and moons in our solar system, hung above the lobby. Glow sticks, arranged in a variety of different patterns, complemented the fluorescent areas lit with blacklights.
Likewise, the tables set up through the corporate building carried the same glow. Florals, organized to look like flora from a faraway planet, brought an excitingly unique vibe to the tabletops. Then glowing globes, hanging crystals, and other designs took guests to the moon!
Additionally, a laser light show darted across the top of everything. Last, more colorful columns, like those that emphasized the entrance, dotted the room. Spaceship-like backdrops stood bright behind the small plates station and other carefully picked parts of the office.
Astronaut Hors’ and Entrees
When you think of space food, you think of tiny packets of freeze-dried food you can eat in zero gravity. We weren’t going to do that, for obvious reasons.
Instead, we served classics with a bit of a creative flare. Take our small plate station, for instance. Our Caprese had small olive oil pearls, our Beer and Goat Cheese Trifles had zesty arugula gel, and we hit the berries in our Red Quinoa with a flashy dose of liquid nitrogen (more on that later). The future is now!
A vegetable platter that included carrots and celery spray-painted a bright chrome shined below the bright lights. Of course, they were edible!
Even some of our deviled eggs looked like they were from a distant planet. The tangy Buffalo Deviled Eggs, delivered straight from Neptune, had bright blue centers!
The entrees continued showing how innovative our culinary team is. In fact, the team got to flex their food chemistry skills for this company event theme.
For starters, a chipotle strawberry emulsion surrounded the Roasted Pork Tenderloin. Truffle foam provided a rich mushroom accent to the Grilled Strip Loin. Lastly, Sweet Corn Coulis made a cool Saturn ring around our Lobster Beignets.
Celestial Cocktail Hour, Spacy Sundaes
Dessert and drinks had to be futuristic too! Cocktail hour featured different test-tube cocktails that looked like we smuggled them directly out of a NASA test lab.
The martinis weren’t from Earth, either. They changed color, from a deep blue to violet. Also, our bartenders shook specific cocktails in small orange space capsules.
Then, we served sonic screwdriver ice spheres. We dropped an ice sphere into a glass and injected it with blue curacao. When the sphere was broken open, it swirled into the bright orange mixture. It ended up looking like a little nebula in a glass.
For dessert, we had a unique sundae bar set up. Guests were served their preferred ice cream with a topping of liquid nitrogen! An assortment of sundae toppings and cake pops brought even more sweet goodness to the sundae bar.
One More Moondance
The food wasn’t the only entertainment, however. Guests could play a target game as they sipped their test tube cocktails. Multiple bands played through the evening, which got the Flagger Force employees dancing!
Innovative food, design, and of course, the fun-loving Flagger Force employees, really launched the event into the next stratosphere. Flagger Force’s Mission XV company event theme was a fun way for a company to say thanks to the employees that make it go.
We can’t even imagine the type of party they’ll want to throw with us next year!
