From The St. Regis Hotel and A Meal to Remember to The Ritz Carlton and Around the World in Eighty Days, A Legendary Event provided unique décor for two marquee Atlanta Gala events this weekend. On Friday night, 500 guests gathered for “A Meal to Remember” benefitting The Senior Citizens of Metropolitan Atlanta. Incorporating the chairs’ vision, the tables were draped in rich Chocolate Dupioni linen and topped with alternating fuchsia and orange roses, peonies, and Gerber Daises. A Legendary Event Floral Designer Jeanna Graham described the look as “chic, contemporary and classic.”
The following night at the Ritz Carlton in Buckhead, The Shepherd Center Foundation celebrated their annual “Legendary Party” under the direction of Gala Chair Cyndae Arrendale. This year, the theme was “Around the World in Eighty Days.” After the 450 guests received their “passports,” they crossed a large wooden boardwalk and were greeted by Phileas Fogg and other characters straight from the pages of the Jules Verne classic.
The décor in the main ballroom featured a handmade patchwork hot air balloon and a 12’ x 32’ map from the late 1800’s. Each table was pin-spotted and centered with a one-of-a-kind vignette composed of old clocks, hat boxes filled with pavéd roses, and nautical enhancements. President and owner Tony Conway said, “We are so honored to have been selected to provide the design and floral for these two worthy causes.”
