Award-winning event planners Marcy Blum and Lynn Easton are good friends, colleagues, and equally difficult and picky party critics. They share a mutual love of parties but abhor mediocrity, creased table linens, predictable designs, and boring entertainment choices. In this series of six chats between them, they will candidly discuss why they are among the best in the business and how they got there. Marcy Blum is an internationally sought-after event planner & entertaining expert who, with 30 years of experience, crafts events with sanity, humor, innovation, and style. With attention to detail and flair for the unimaginable, Marcy creates events that stimulate the senses and awe guests while creating a seamless and enjoyable experience for clients. A graduate of the prestigious Culinary Institute of America, Marcy is able to blend the tenets of theater, cuisine, décor, and atmosphere into every event she creates – establishing herself as an “eventiste” for her combination of artistry and practicality. Marcy not only has been named a top planner in the world by both VOGUE & Harpers BAZAAR; she’s also been featured in countless publications, most notably People, The New York Times, Vanity Fair and Women’s Wear Daily. She’s also appeared on television shows such as on Oprah, The Today Show, Good Morning America, Rachael Ray Show, and several Japanese TV shows where she had absolutely no idea what they talked about. As the creative force and co-founder of Easton Porter Group (EPG), a luxury hospitality company, Lynn Easton provides strategic vision and a well-honed stylistic eye on all elements of design and presentation for its highly acclaimed properties and Easton Events. The EPG portfolio is most recognized for Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards, Zero George Hotel and Cannon Green; and its exponential growth landed it a spot on the 2015 Inc. 500 list of fastest-growing private companies in America. Whether orchestrating elegant destination weddings for Easton Events or layering texture and patina in the boutique hotels, restaurants, wineries and event venues run by Easton Porter Group, Lynn is an inspired innovator and detail-driven design expert. Her background in television production in New York City lends itself well to event production across the globe, as every Lynn Easton project, property, or marquee occasion showcases her intuitive sense of stage setting and classic but fresh design. Lynn’s reputation for “high-touch” events and impeccable attention to detail is why Easton Events is regularly found on “best of” top planner lists by VOGUE, Harper’s BAZAAR, and Martha Stewart Weddings. Easton Events’ discreet client list includes individuals listed on Forbes 100, Grammy winners, Oscar winners, and an array of lifestyle influencers. Photographs: Joee Wong, Jose Villa, Robert Fairer
