To celebrate the W’s Anniversary, the hotel enlisted the help of our creative services to transform their meeting space into a Urban beauty. Using several different variations of orchids and a black and white color palette, we made this space … Continue reading →
Holiday season is nearly here – it seems like we were just celebrating the spring blooms! The warm weather may be gone, but the fall and winter seasons offer their own delights: Warm drinks, cozy cashmere sweaters, glorious galas and endless social affairs. If you’re anything like us your card will be full through December – and at least one of those dates will include attending – or even planning – a holiday office party.
Over the years, holiday office parties truly have gotten a bad reputation: Many of us aren’t excited about spending our free time with our co-workers and bosses. Food isn’t always the best and conversations can range from stilted to downright boring. Well here at Tony Brewer and Co., we believe a beautiful atmosphere can not only please the eye, it can inspire! With a little attention to detail, planning and creativity, you’re sure to plan the perfect holiday office party in no time.
This 2008 corporate event showed how you can make a modern impact using bold linens with streamlined flowers and containers for the centerpiece. White was used as a pop of color to this silver look, creating a stunning display for the night’s attendees.
June has turned into a super busy month for us, but we’re really excited about one event in particular. One of our biggest corporate clients holds an annual international event, and this year, it’s in Barcelona! We’ll be doing two events over two days, but I wanted to share one of the incredibly cool venues with you, La Casa Llotja de Mar.
Built in the 18th-century on top of Spain’s medieval stock exchange, it is now one of the country’s most spectacular examples of two-story Gothic architecture. It is said to house Spain’s most interesting collection of neoclassical sculpture, including theDying Lucretia by Damià Campeny. Casa Llotja is now home to Barcelona’s Official Chamber of Commerce.
And finally, our dinner will take place in the Saló de Contractacions, or Transaction Hall. With soaring ceilings, intricate arches and columns, and historic stone walls, this room makes a sure statement.
In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I wanted to bring this event out of the archives. This festive themed event happened back in 2009 during an annual week long event we design for one of our largest corporate clients. Oranges, pinks, greens, blues, and reds brought lots of color through fresh and paper flowers, custom pillow cases, and linens. And while I know Cinco de Mayo is a Mexican holiday, you can’t forget the sign installation declaring our destination that evening: the Port of Havana.
Now, on to the pictures!
Of course, this was a nighttime concert, so here’s how it all came together as the sun went down:
Lots of colors, patterns, and textures went into making this “Port of Havana” look come together. What design elements would you use for your own South of the border-inspired fête?
