New Orleans professionals receive praise from The Salonniere

Earlier this summer, The Salonniere – the award-winning website that declares its dedication to the art of entertaining – released its first “Les Pages” list. This by-invitation-only list was comprised of the nation’s top event companies, both venues and event professionals, and some New Orleans notables made the list.

The Salonniere prides itself on “Les Pages” being a strictly merit-based list, where companies cannot buy in, which was comprised over a year by its editors and “The Salonniere 100,” which is the annual list of America’s 100 best party planners.

“Together, ‘The Salonniere 100’ and ‘Les Pages’ shine a light on the people in America who are exceptional at leveraging the power of social gatherings to enrich the lives of others,” said Carla McDonald, the founder and editor in chief of The Salonniere. “’The Salonniere 100’ celebrates the gifted connectors who host parties, and ‘Les Pages’ honors the exceptional professionals who bring events to life.” 

There are four different categories for the New Orleans area, with 25 local professionals and companies making the list.
