It's not just weddings and showers that can be fun, festive times, but the launch of a new business can be quite exciting too.
A little more than a year ago I launched Coming Together Events as a full-time business after a decade's worth of helping family, friends, and even retail giants plan and rollout parties, events, and designer fashion lines. So when I got the chance to help another local small businesswoman launch her own business, I jumped at the chance.
Rosie is the owner of Star-Fish Seafood & More, a seafood restaurant and catering service in Teaneck, New Jersey. Originally from New York, Rosie came to New Jersey looking for opportunity to make her mark on the world of dining and her new restaurant is the culmination of that search.
The launch was something of a challenge as Coming Together Events had just one week to prepare for the Grand Opening. We secured metal stanchions and velvet ropes, balloons, big ceremony scissors, and ribbon for the all-important ribbon-cutting ceremony. But the biggest challenge was the "red carpet" treatment. Well, blue carpet really, since that was in line with Rosie's color scheme.
It was a last-minute decision to create an exciting backdrop where photos could be taken at the grand opening, just as would occur at a movie premiere or the Academy Awards. We contacted several sign vendors and settled on local graphics shop Majestic Signs, which promised us not only high quality materials, but the key 24-hour turnaround time. They came through in spades! We picked up our sign on the way to prep the restaurant for its debut.
There's nothing fishy here. Check out Star-Fish Seafood & More for yourself. They describe themselves as a seafood soul food restaurant, but what they really are is delicious! Located at 265 DeGraw Ave. Teaneck, give them a call at (201) 801-9174. Reservations are not required but always appreciated.
