Never underestimate the power of a Post-it. Event designer David Stark and his team used hundreds of the little yellow notes to ensure that the theme of the recent New Yorkers for Children fall gala stuck with guests. “Make It Happen” was spelled out in a sunny wall of yellow and black Post-its that welcomed attendees and flanked the dining space, while a “giving tree” in the cocktail area invited attendees to scribble their thoughts on Post-it “leaves.” More Post-its covered the reverse of the entry wall, tweaking the message to ask “How do you make it happen?” Guests arrived to their tables to find personalized Post-it pads marking their places, along with napkins embroidered with a psuedo-Post-it designed by Stark. As for those eyelet table linens, they were custom made by Ankasa in—you guessed it—Post-it yellow.
