• Mini Tablescape: Tying into Blockbuster Shows

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.

The event and catering industries accepted the challenge to create vignettes inspired by well-known fashion designers for the 14th annual International Live Events Association (ILEA) Denver Designer Showcase. This was the first year that ILEA partnered with the Denver Chapter of the National Association for Catering & Events (NACE), knowing it would bring a whole new level of opportunity to the table.

 

Designed by Swift + Company, this bright, abundant tablescape creates an inviting setting for any special occasion any time of the year. But it is especially fitting as we tuck into fall. The peach and burgundy bloom flowers paired with seasonal fruits and vegetables offer a place to come together and give thanks for all of the season’s gifts.
