We were so thrilled to continue our relationship with Atlanta’s High Museum of Art at their October 2013 bolo, boots, and black-tie gala, celebrating the opening of the exhibit “Go West! Art of the American Frontier from the Buffalo Bill Center of the West.” We drew inspiration not only from the stunning art of the exhibit but also from desert wildflowers and the cowboys of the Wild West themselves. Thank you to the wonderful Janet Howard Studio for capturing the evening for us!
Guests walked into the party through a custom ranch entrance and sipped cocktails on the Piazza, which was outfitted with split rail fencing and cocktail tables topped with square wooden tops and colorful cactus centerpieces.
When guests entered the Wieland Pavilion for dinner, they were seated at either a round table with soft burlap linens and low desert wildflower centerpieces in reclaimed wooden boxes or at an estate table with bright mandarin linens topped with wooden tabletops detailed with thin rope. Tall centerpieces of desert wildflowers, tumbleweeds, rope, and lanterns completed the look. Each seat had a custom linen chair back and a brown bandana napkin tied with leather.
One of our favorite details of the evening was the living statue who greeted guests at the entrance. With a treatment to disguise himself as a Remington bronze, he was the perfect complement to our cowboy-inspired evening!
When you’ve got a good thing, you hold on to it – or so the saying goes. And we’ve found a great thing in our relationship with Piedmont Hospital, who we will work with in 2014 to design the 57th Annual Piedmont Ball!
It’s quite an honor to be a part of this touted social event, especially considering the proceeds will support the hospital’s ever-growing list of innovative services it offers patients throughout the region.
It’s not Tony Brewer and Co’s first time at the ball! In fact, you may have read about our involvement in the most recent ball, in January, in Atlanta Social Season Magazine. The TBC team worked hard to transform the ballroom at the Piedmont Driving Club into the 1920’s era of Old New Orleans, with all of the excitement and spirited pageantry you could ask for!
The event drew support from Brown & Company Jewelers, our friends at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company and more.
Here at Tony Brewer and Co., creating beautiful environments is our specialty! It’s only natural then that we would help lend a little TBC flair to the recent opening of the “Gogo: Nature Transformed” exhibit at the High Museum. Featuring spectacular baubles in striking greens and shimmering metals, the exhibit explores the role the natural environment plays in shaping jewelry. It showcases the work of Janet “Gogo” Ferguson – a Georgia designer and creator of fabulous pieces. You know we can’t help but be fans! Continue reading
Creating the perfect holiday decor – each year it’s the same goal! Every host wants to have the most memorable centerpieces or the most unforgettable place settings – not to mention the tastiest dishes and cocktails. But keeping planning fresh and fun – while remaining season appropriate – can be a challenge. After all, how many different ways can you really remix a holiday event?
Plenty! Here at Tony Brewer and Co., our job is to provide creative, inspiring decor no matter what the circumstance. When it comes to holiday celebrations, the formula for freshness is simple: Blend color and creativity with a polished touch to produce a holiday that will be memorable for seasons to come!
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.
Here at Tony Brewer & Co. you know how much we love to talk – about beautiful things, breathtaking events and galas galore! But sometimes a picture says even more than a thousand words. And while many of our fans have seen our work firsthand at Jazzoo, the Devereux Georgia event or the Fernbank Museum’s Timeless Affair, others haven’t had a close encounter with “The Tony Brewer Touch!” With all of that in mind, we figured we’d let beautiful snapshots of the Arthritis Foundation’s Crystal Ball do much of the talking for this blog!
Gala season is running at full clip and we’re as busy as ever picking out swatches, coordinating themes and just generally putting the “Tony Touch” on everything from the Fernbank Museum’s “Timeless Affair” to the Arthritis Foundation’s Crystal Ball! We’re extra excited this year to add a new client to the roster – Devereux Georgia, a youth-oriented organization hosting “Hope Event: the Art of Feelings” Thursday.
Devereux Georgia is a truly unique organization. Located on a lush, 40-acre campus in Kennesaw, Devereux Georgia is licensed to serve 100 children up to the age of 21 who face emotional and behavioral challenges often brought on by abuse. Through its impressive slate of programs and services, Devereux is able to help these young people gain the skills to succeed in life.
