High-Voltage Night at CS+TSE Connect Social

Catersource + The Special Event crackles with excitement at “Electric Bohemian” themed first evening event

Nothing lights a spark of anticipation like a good theme event, and that’s exactly what kicked off the first night of Catersource + The Special Event, held this past February 12-15 in Austin, TX. Attendees who had gotten into town early enough to go on the day’s Venue Tour gathered their free-spirit selves for an electrifying soirée at Speakeasy, a bar and night club at the city’s original speakeasy. The theme, which Kristin Banta (Kristin Banta Events) predicted would be a hot theme in 2024 during her annual trend session, married the free-spirited essence of bohemian culture with the vivid allure of electric lights, combining eclectic décor with historic charm and modern innovation. 

Lauren Kelly and Morgan Hayward of Hello! Texas Destination Management chaired the event, welcoming attendees to Austin with Texas boho spirit. With food and beverages, a DJ, tarot readers, a Zoltar machine, and even bowling, the night was a vibrant start to a memorable week!
