Innovative Party Planners is proud to have worked with so many talented event industry vendors this past week when we participated in Baltimore NACE’s event Uncorked! and raised money for Moveable Feast.  Heidi Bloch Hiller Co-Chaired the Uncorked! Design Committee and designed the event logo. Innovative Party Planners entered two neighborhoods in the designers challenge; Mt. Washington and Lombard Street. We are thrilled to share the top award given, for the ”Best Overall Neighborhood” with our fabulous and creative Lombard Street team. We congratulate all the winners and look forward to working with all that competed again very soon. Check out some pictures from the event, including photos taken by Jennifer McMenamin Photography and the Umbrella Syndicate.  Additional coverage of the event can be found at Baltimore Style, The ListThe Baltimore Sun, Baltimore Eats, Baltimore NACE Uncorked and Facebook.
