A huge chrome archway welcomed the guests into the lounge, which was set with benches and lounge furniture. We used 8’ tall candle wall screens with chrome inserts to define space and cover doors. These went beautifully in the lounge. We also flanked the stage with them. To bring height in the space we brought in 7’ tall chrome candle stands. We flanked bars as well as the entrance to the lounge with them. We needed huge statement pieces to create drama in a space that big.
Our Plexiglas cocktail tables with sandblasted trees for centerpieces floated through the room. Below we accented them with silver succulents and sandblasted grape wood. It was architectural and modern.
We have a collection of silver studded black club chairs, huge gothic king chairs, and some vintage black coffee tables. We accented the lounge furniture with our pieces to add spice. We worked with Chic Event Rentals to bring in black benches, lighting, bars, linens, and draping. Everyone worked closely to ensure the success of the night.
My favorite part is all of the silver succulents. I am a huge fan of succulents and at times their architecture is the perfect focal point for a space. In this situation, I needed something that was both chrome and architectural. They were perfect.
We love the rustic images that brought a sense of masculinity and art to the tables. We added the fabric patches to our boxes and bound them in twine, which acted like seams on our boxes.
We needed traffic of 700-1000 persons to get to the food, bars, and horsdourve stations without long lines, so we laid out the room to maximize the access. This was a huge priority to keep people enjoying themselves. The 12’ trees were placed inside the crescent shaped food stations to make the entire event cohesive.
The party was hopping with a rockabilly band CHOP TOPS and DJ. We stayed and partied throughout the night. We had a great time. Thankfully Hogar loved it. The guests were intrigued and enjoyed themselves. We can’t wait until next year.
