We created a Steampunk inspired design for an industry network event called Martini Madness that was hosted by Duncan Reyes. A couple of weeks ago we blogged about the cocktail hour that led into this reception. That blog is called Steampunk Subculture and it focused on the intricacies of the centerpieces for this event. Today’s blog focuses on the overall design and statement pieces that we brought to transform the Oceano Hotel and Spa.

 

As I look back on this event, I do so with fond eyes. I remember how we got to play with new design elements such as salvaged materials that appeared in the centerpieces. I also love the way that these discarded items played so well with an opulent ballroom design. The feeling in the room was grand even though the details of the design were not. The design was an interesting juxtaposition of two worlds that came together in an unlikely harmony.

 

For the statement pieces throughout the room, we used many of our custom wrought iron pieces. This was apparent in the entrance of the room that exhibited our European inspired archway. This over-sized entrance piece was flanked by ornate brackets that held decorative light bulbs. We also used our Lion Stands both as candelabras and with electrified Marconi light bulbs that made these pieces even more unique. I’m happy to say that we were one of the first event design companies that popularized the usage of antique styled light bulbs, and still use them today. Finally, we also displayed our custom candle-walls and 3-tiered candelabras around the perimeter of the room to create the dramatic look.

 

With rustic, moody design elements combined with the deep-set colors and ornate floral design, the Steampunk Reception event theme creates the perfect atmosphere to transport you and your guests into another world – Steampunk Subculture.

 

It is always a pleasure to work with the Oceano Hotel and Spa in Half Moon Bay and Duncan Reyes for this magical networking industry event, Martini Madness.

Sincerely,
Jonathan

About Asiel Design

We believe design begins with a relationship of trust with your wedding planner and event designer. When choosing an event designer or a wedding coordinator, we believe that you should feel listened to, understood, and guided through the process in a way, which helps you achieve a look and feel that is personalized to your style. There should be a connection with the designer’s work, esthetic, and a comfort-ability with the professionalism of the company they represent. Mutual respect between the client and the wedding coordinator or event designer is the foundation to a successfully designed event. We believe it is the client who holds all the secrets to their design – what they like, what excites them, and the message and experience they desire to convey throughout their event.
