hi, i’m emilie.

With a dream of starting a catering & event business, I took a leap of faith. Inspired by a love of culture and cuisine, I invested in Camilla, a Piaggio Apé, to kickstart Close Ties. With the help of family and friends, I am creating a one of a kind experience serving hors d’oeuvres and desserts with everything you need on tap.

We will travel to any event within
a 30 mile radius of Latham, New York.

Meet Camilla

Camilla the Piaggio Apé was born in 1964 in Sicily, Italy. She was used for many years to haul logs up and down the mountains of Palermo and was retired in 2019. She was put on the market just as the COVID-19 pandemic hit but taken off shortly after due to the borders closing. In early 2022 she was shipped to Dallas, Texas and then to Albany, New York.

She may be small and mighty, but she fits perfectly in any venue. With the capability of keeping all beverages chilled after her fully-functional restoration, we are so excited to serve you at your next event.

her years of retirement are just beginning.
