Valentine’s Day is upon us and we are enveloped in red and pink… to honor it we were trying to think of something fun to write or show you. What better than to share one of our past events? Who says red and pink are only for Valentine’s Day? They can be used as a beautiful accent for your decor, without being over the top or seemingly girly and childish.
But, as usual, we are getting ahead of ourselves… let’s go back to November, 2014 – the Boston Children’s Hospital League Gala. This one was hosted at the Fairmont Copley and the theme was “Under the Big Top.”
Yes, this event is to support kids and programs for them while they are at the hospital, but it’s also a night for adults! So to walk that fine-circus-tightrope-line between childish and chic, we designed the cocktail hour to be a fun and festive filled room with oversized balloons, bright pink and orange accents – complete with an elephant over the bar!
As guests finished cocktails, they moved across the hall to the Grand Ballroom, where they entered a space that was a bit more grownup – portraying a vintage circus vibe – with golds, blacks and pops of a whimsical red (see – I knew we’d circle back to red and Valentine’s Day). Winston Flowers helped us to create these fun centerpieces – the co-chairs couldn’t believe that red carnations could look so good. (Sorry, carns, you guys have a bad rap, but things are looking up!)
This client even had fun adjusting their logo to fit the theme. Overall, it was a great event that you should consider looking in to for this year! Planning is just in the works, but it’s sure to be a fun-filled event for everyone!
Many thanks to all of the vendors who helped to make this event possible (plus Allegro Photography for these great shots). Added thanks to the Big Apple Circus Clowns and stiltwalker Big League Brian, who are part of the BCHL programming and were added entertainment for our guests!
