Meet Madalene Benoist d’Etiveaud — special occasion consultant, dream champion, resident eventista. Madalene’s resume is impressive; she’s coordinated weddings, milestone birthdays, bar mitzvahs, graduations, anniversaries, and beyond. And each with an eye for detail and a knack for simple sophistication. Clients and reviewers agree — Madalene is the heartbeat of Bash…and Bash is in the happiness business — giving way to satisfied brides and pleased party honorees, every time.
Madalene’s penchant for event design was sparked during her years spent working and traveling abroad which set the foundation for her love of fine foods, fine wines and all things European. With a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from New York’s Columbia University and previous positions held in marketing management, she returned to her calling and chanelled her passion for parties by chairing fundraisers and galas, to the delight of the Fairfield County, Connecticut community during her daughters school age years until the inception of BASH Events in 2011.
Madalene originally launched Bash’s Darien-based showroom and catering kitchen in 2011, and has since opened her planning studio in the stunning town of Greenwich, CT. A winning mix of people skills, European flair and an insightful grasp on local culture, has made Madalene the ultimate entertaining guru.
Meet Madalene at her stylish Greenwich office — 34 East Putnam/203.202.7780 — and cozy consultation space — to brainstorm event ideas that match your specific needs. Peruse the Bash portfolio and let her be your special occasion visionary.
