How did Denver-based Catering by Design celebrate its 20th anniversary? Owners Cade and Ingrid Nagy’s answer was BASH 20, an allout, in-your-face culinary adventure held on March 24. The Catering by Design team and sister company, By Design Event Décor, created never-before-experienced food stations and decorative lounges that transformed Denver’s Mile High Station into a showcase of what’s new. A jerky gallery, elevated chandelier dessert buffet, 7-foot-tall rubber duck and threedimensional paint-bynumbers experience were among the many wonders of the night.
With the events industry at a near standstill, Jess Doren realized this may have been the moment she’d been waiting for. Having produced large-scale events for big brands like Apple and Buzzfeed, she’d had little time in the past to develop events of her own, but this past summer, she and a team of fellow event pros set out to gather a community craving connection.
