Best known for his magnificent, one of a kind events, celebrity event planner Larry Scott of Lawrence Scott Events was brought in to add his creative touch to Margaret Josephs’ spectacular 50th birthday bash in the RHONJ Season Finale. The incredible and exciting party was no doubt the highlight of RHONJ Season 8. The episode “Prisons, Proposals and Parties” aired on BRAVO on Wednesday, January 10, 2018. The event was held at Margaret and her husband Joe Benigno’s New Jersey mansion, which was turned into an edgy 2018 version of the legendary Studio 54—complete with modelesque staff draped in black and gold.
The carefully selected décor gave the space a hip, movie set-like ambience, including black and white striped floor tiles inspired by the Mark Hotel in New York, custom wall-papers featuring Margaret in her signature pigtails look, and a satirical tribute to the original Studio 54 by a Disco is Dead “graveyard” in the garden, featuring “fallen” disco balls.
Larry’s signature “invasions”—often a key part of his events—added a shot of adrenaline to the event. Invasions are designed to steer attention away from individuals and bring a new common aspect to entertaining, which causes people to draw attention to food items and drinks, hence bringing attention back to the guest of honor. Stylishly dressed waiters paraded around carrying many of Larry’s delicious hors d’oeuvres and signature oversize desserts.
