Farrah Edelstein

Farrah was born to produce events! As a young girl, she worked alongside her mother, Karen Ferenzo, who started Top of the Party, Ltd. Their event planning company has produced high-end events for more than 30 years.  

After graduating from Syracuse University in 2003, Farrah pursued a career in event production; first as sales manager at Cipriani Wall Street, and later, as event manager at Somerstein Caterers at The Water’s Edge.  In 2010, she joined the iconic Manhattan venue, Capitale, where she directed and produced custom events ranging from intimate nuptial ceremonies to over-the-top star-studded galas. 

Farrah has successfully planned thousands of events. Some that stand out for her are events for Alicia Keys, former Presidents Bush and Clinton, the New York Knicks, 30 Rock, Tyra Banks and Gloria Steinem, just to name a few. Farrah has taken over Top Of The Party, Ltd from her mother.

Jeff Edelstein

Jeff grew up 20 miles from New York City in Rockland County, NY. He attended SUNY Oswego and majored in Meteorology and Psychology. For several years, Jeff was a college television weatherman.

After graduating college, Jeff worked in telecom sales for almost 10 years and then moved on to the real estate business. He also ran a few small businesses. He now enjoys working with his wife, Farrah, at Top of the Party!

Karen Ferenzo

Karen loves an over the top party! With her creative eye and style she planned her son’s bar mitzvah 34 years ago. The event was such a hit that she got calls the next day to plan their own events. From that point on Top Of The Party was formed. The business grew and clients were formed all around the tri state area. 

Karen is always thinking out of the box and not one event is the same. She saw her daughter Farrah had the talent and brought her in at a young age to learn the business.

Hal Ferenzo

Hal grew up learning about the event business alongside his mom, Karen, and his sister, Farrah. Hal prefers the more hands-on, production side of the business and enjoys turning Farrah's creative vision into a reality.

Hal is incredibly detail-oriented and executes picture-perfect events, perfectly aligned yard signs, and anything else Top of the Party's clients can dream up.
