When planning a gathering, make sure to check a destination’s calendar of events for festivals, concerts and noteworthy exhibitions. Leslie Heins and Lisa Cook, owners and event architects of Denver-based Affair with Flair, demonstrated how this can be done with a social occasion, which easily could have been a corporate event in conjunction with the Denver Art Museum’s recent blockbuster “Dior: From Paris to the World” that wrapped up in March 2019.

“This was a party that Lisa and I wanted to create to celebrate years of friendship with the special women in our lives. The party was held at a private home.” Heins shares, “We designed everything with David Squires [from DesignWorks] keeping the Dior theme in mind, and Occasions Catering did the food. After the delicious lunch, Arrow Bus Company took everyone to the Denver Art Museum to see the exhibit. It was a great day to celebrate fashion and friendships!”

Another great opportunity is available when DAM presents the most comprehensive U.S. exhibition of Monet paintings in more than two decades with “Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature,” co-organized by DAM and Museum Barberini in Potsdam, Germany. DAM is the sole U.S. venue with the exhibition running from Oct. 20, 2019 through Feb. 2, 2020.

Kehoe Designs Event Producer Mathew Lahey set out to create an in-house showcase for “Knees Deep,” the company’s latest design series, which challenged the Kehoe team to take a deep dive into forecasted style trends, he found a unique opportunity to take risks and push boundaries.

 

Erase any vision you might have of a dude ranch, especially the “City Slicker” version. For the purposes of this story, let’s use the name ranch resort and picture a big dose of vision and thousands of acres for both herds and people to roam. It’s a fairly different option, but one with similar friendliness and the Western spirit of a dude ranch.
