Our Celebration Care teams brilliantly work with you or your event planner to custom design and execute a fabulous drop off area just for children -full of activities and fun.

“the BEST time they’ve had at a grown-up party EVER!”

Want entertainment? We know unique and righteously cool entertainers!

Want personalized coloring books or t-shirts featuring the bride and groom or guest of honor? We almost always do that- and they are hysterical!

Want each child to go home with a picture frame they made at your event in which they can insert a group picture taken with the guests of honor? -That is one of our best activities!

By The Book

Home is getting to be a complicated matter. With security systems, smart home systems, specific requirements and procedures for the care of fine furnishings … let alone personal preferences and employment terms for the staff- the amount of information that must be accessed and used on almost a daily basis is staggering. Having a household manual precisely customized and easily updateable without needless fluff and useless information can prove to be a useful and almost indispensable tool. That is where our “By the Book” division comes in. Our, “By the Book” team will work with you to custom design a highly detailed and easily navigated functional manual specifically designed for your family and properties. From vital contact and emergency information to step by step instructions on how to reset the pool thermostat, to house rules about the use of the employer’s phone for personal calls, to preferences on what silver and glassware is used with specific china, our team will pull this information, and countless other details specific only to your family and your properties, together for you and present it back to you in an easily updated CD Rom, personal website and/or notebook form.

Imagine the time and convenience of not having to start from scratch every time a new staff member is hired. Having photos a click away of how each room and furnishing is to be presented means being able to show staff members who may have language challenges or who are simply new to your household your requirements, assuring that there are no question as to your preferences for your home. Favorite menus, recipes, the children’s school calendar, gift logs, invitation and mailing lists, clothing inventory, instruction manuals and other practical information can be a click away -all organized in a simple easy to use private web page stored on your personal computer and accessible by all or only those you designate. Additionally, quick links to valuable or enjoyable information can be added such as the weather, train schedules, your golf club’s events calendar, appropriate children’s game sites or anything else that makes sense to you is never a hitch to include.

Each and every “By the Book” project is a personal, private creation designed by our staff exclusively for the use of our client family and requires at least 2 months per property to gather, sort and present the manual. Additionally, substantial time commitment on the part of the client and/or estate manager/personal assistant in the first weeks as well as ongoing support throughout the project is vital in making this endeavor a success. Once completed to the point of presentation, updates and changes can be made easily either by your staff or our By the Book team.  This private manual will be created exclusively for your family with the information that is important and specifically applicable only to you, your homes, yachts, planes and other properties. All information gathered is absolutely confidential and your manual will never be shared or used as a model for other client families. To arrange for a personal consultation and , please phone our New York office at 212-947-9792
