The Container Store’s Clever Grand Opening Event

To celebrate the grand opening of their new store at Yonker’s Ridge Hill shopping center, The Container Store teamed up with AK to create an innovative cocktail reception featuring NYC-themed stations all while utilizing a wide variety of the store’s products as our vessels!

Some of the clever creations: The “Taste of Chinatown” station serving assorted maki sushi rolls in lime green metal cabinets and to-go Pad Thai noodles in mesh drawer systems; The “Hell’s Kitchen” station featuring barbecued beef and chili lime chicken tacos served on inverted storage bins and sips of green & red gazpacho presented in spice jars; The “Arthur Ave” station with a variety of flatbread pizzettas and prosciutto wrapped asparagus served on acrylic letter and accessory trays; and The “Greenmarket” station with catsmo smoked salmon bars and watermelon dominoes on decorative office storage bins. Let’s not forget the vibrantly colored “Cake Bar” with cake pops and mini layer cakes displayed on closet storage boxes.
