On November 18th, 2018 we held the one year anniversary celebration of our event series, StyledtoaTEA Empowerment. Guest gathered together in north Philadelphia from all areas of the tri-state area, including New Jersey and NYC, in celebration of the brands success! We even had guest from Atlanta in the building for the memorable evening.
The prom themed gala featured tunes by Dj Lij, an open bar curated by PA bartenders Nikita Buxton and Ariel Simmons. There was a dessert bar sponsored by Natalie of 1984 cakes, and an assorted variety of wines sponsored by NYC’s very own Papi Wines. Guest indulged in a delicious spread of soul food catered by Marilyn Bishop of South Philadelphia. The evenings decor was curated by Ciana Hammock, which featured wispy vines along the walls and a grassy backdrop for photos. The decor also featured art by Philadelphia’s own Charlie Shae.
The banquet style table set ups came equipped with prom king/queen ballots placed on the plates of each guest. Each person who wanted to be considered for prom king or queen had the opportunity to sign their names on the ballot sheet to be placed in the running for king or queen.
Owner, Tysha White, awarded certificates to a few of the guest who have been heavily involved in StyledtoaTEA Empowerment since the start. Each recipient was given a chance to make a speech and offer well wishes after receiving their awards. We also chose two guest and awarded them with a personal bottle of Papi Wine for being the best dressed guest in the room!
