When deciding on a venue, take a look at the architecture you have available to you. Sometimes you can take the design and structure of a space and incorporate it into your event décor. This is a cost effective way to make your social or corporate gathering even more beautiful. Check out these four ideas for inspiration!
These amazing laser-cut paper foldouts as tabletop centerpieces were meant to represent the architecture of Grand Avenue and surrounding buildings in downtown Los Angeles, including Disney Hall and the new Broad. LED lights illuminated the representations of the buildings so they appeared to glow from within. You can do this based on any cityscape. It definitely adds a touch of sophistication and art.
The Residence of the German Ambassador is a modernist space decorated with variations on the square form. The building itself served as the design inspiration for this year’s Opera Ball, a benefit for the Washington National Opera, in June. Perfect for PR, the architectural inspiration at the Residence in Washington translated in two custom structures at the entrance, which included logos that allowed them to double as step-and-repeats as well as a welcoming entryway. We love this idea!
Inside the Broad museum opening party, glowing orbs illuminated the space and provided décor. The monochromatic orbs nodded subtly to the all-white exterior of the venue. We love the use of this space with this design because it really draws your eye to the venue from left to right. Plus it is just simply beautiful.
Mirrored tabletops at the J. Paul Getty Medal event evoked the shimmering façade of a famous Gehry-designed building, Disney Hall. Not to mention, if you think you have something in your teeth, you can just look down!
