Lucky Peach

Trends on Trends turned Chelsea Piers Bowlmor Lanes into the location for Lucky Peach’s 5th Birthday and the 2016 Winners Are Losers James Beard Award After Party. Tables overflowing with Birthday classics like square pizza by Pizza Loves Emily, chicken ‘n’ biscuits by Pies ‘n’ Thighs, and bbq meat plates by Delaney Barbecue would make any adult or kid jealous.

We created the nostalgia of a kid’s birthday party complete with a dancing mime, magician bending quarters and levitating cards, animal balloons and tables overflowing with plastic vending machine capsules full of custom Tattly tattoos.
Guests bowled the night away amidst bannisters trimmed with giant gold-lettered helium party balloons spelling L-U-C-K-Y-P-E-A-C-H, accented by gold balloon buds. Dozens of hanging paper streamers created a full-on childhood throwback effect. And there’s nothing like stuffing your face with TWO full-sheet cakes of Cookies ‘n’ Creme and Birthday Cake by Momofuku Milk Bar to make any loser feel like a winner.
