At A Legendary Event, our award-wining floral team is busy designing magnificent centerpieces. For color and pizzazz, we love including lemons and limes for a less predictable touch. With summer starting to sizzle, now is the time to let some sun into your celebration and brighten your home with brilliant hues of yellow and orange. Legendary Floral Director Jeanna Graham enjoys adding citrus to A Legendary Event’s table- scapes. Guests asked ‘How did you think of that?’ That’s the “Wow” factor we aim for at Legendary which is colorful, creative, and unexpected.” One of the biggest trends in floral arrangements this year is also unconventional centerpieces and using fruit to catch guests by surprise. These arrangements add vibrant colors that dazzle the eyes and citrus fruits provide a fresh aroma that brings the sunshine inside. To jazz up tables and place settings, slice freshly picked lemons, limes, oranges, grapefruits, or bergamots. Combine different fruits for a fresh and clean arrangement. Try sliding lemon slices into a clear vase, and then fill it with flowers and ice water for a “Legendary” look. Simple and sophisticated, this is a solar flare that will keep your company coming back for more.
Our event designers and floral team are always creating fabulous designs and once again, we added pizzazz to a recent party. Always up on the newest, latest and greatest trends, one of our favorite designs that mesmerized guests at a Mitzvah we did were centerpieces filled with stunning, jaw-dropping tie-dyed roses. That’s right…it was a spectrum of colors which burst from these roses and they were the talk of the party!! The one question everyone asked was, “How do you make these tie-dyed roses?” The answer: Roses this special and exquisite were imported from our top sources who are masters at this process and inject pigments into the rose stems using hypodermic needles. The result was a breathtaking surprise for everyone. A throw-back to the seventies, they were quite elegant with a fresh new spin. It was another legendary party that guests are still raving about and the psychedelic flowers were a big hit at the party!

The New Loews Hotel set the perfect stage for this last weekend’s gala, A Tony Evening. All of the raised proceeds benefited the Alliance Theatre. Our talented event designer, Sophia Lin made it a stylish and upscale atmosphere that blended the setting of the hotel with an artistic rendition of A Tony Evening logo. The logo, which captured the essence of classic style and elegance with filigree patterns, portrayed a contemporary edge with its paint-like splatter design and unconventional color scheme. Sophia also utilized a mixture of soft and bold purple tones combined with dark blue, turquoise and gold, and jewel tones that dramatically came to life with the neutral hotel palette.The step and repeat was anything but traditional! Sophia found her inspiration for the step and repeat on on the red carpet at the this year Grammy’s.
The centerpieces for the tables were a perfect marriage of traditional beauty mixed with modern style. Each centerpiece was constructed with a composition of stacked clear and turquoise colored glass for a glistening effect with the room lighting. These centerpieces contained a mixture of golden and orange toned florals mixed with deep purple blooms. Conventional florals such as hydrangea, roses and tulips were mixed with orchids, mums and other bold florals for a full yet simple look. A sleek crystal base table lamp was added to the composition and topped with an ivory tapered shade. Square votives were also used in the centerpiece, which again created a sense of modern style.
The theatrical filled evening, which starred Broadway Star Elaine Stritch, was a huge hit!! Our team did a fantastic job at this memorable event!!
