More than 600 savvy incentive event professionals, three unique design opportunities, two sophisticated clients, one high holiday glamour event — the 19th Annual SITE Holiday Event & Charity Auction at The Beverly Hilton. Relevé Unlimited had the honor of creating captivating event design for the Welcome Reception in two venues on behalf of the Beverly Hills Conference & Visitors Bureau (“Love Beverly Hills”) and The Beverly Hilton, as well as designing décor for a Gala Dinner table hosted by The Beverly Hilton.
The Welcome Reception was hosted in The Gardens of The Beverly Hilton: the new Wilshire Garden and the Secret Garden. The Wilshire Garden (6,650 sq. ft. / 600-person capacity) features grand ceremony doors that lead into the stunning event space, while the adjacent Secret Garden (1,760 sq. ft. / 100-person capacity) includes cozy nooks, swaying palm trees, and an eye-catching waterfall feature. Relevé’s mission was to create two distinct yet complementary design expressions for each venue, delicately balancing the need for high holiday glamour while maximizing floor space to accommodate an event flow of 600 guests.
SITE Holiday Event guests entered the Secret Garden through blue-lighted doorways that imparted an alluring invitation to an intimate, jewel-toned setting featuring soft and glamorous materials such as tufted blue velvet furniture sponsored by Bright Event Rentals, green up-lighted palm trees and fountain, and brilliantly shimmering multi-colored linens.
For the larger Wilshire Garden setting, we were inspired by the elegant people who attend iconic award events at The Beverly Hilton. The Wilshire Garden glittered in a palette of gold, cream, copper, and white. Design highlights included a central 12-foot artificial gold, copper and white palm tree, tufted white furnishings, glossy gold-faceted coffee tables, and dazzling linens.
Three resplendent carolers and a fabulous Diva from Lucent Dossier Experience greeted guests as they entered the Welcome Reception, elevating the excitement level for all.
Relevé Unlimited designed the Gala Dinner tablescape to reverberate with the stature and celebrity-filled history of The Beverly Hilton. Commencing with unique and opulent linens from Resource One Linens covered in varying sized sequins of black, copper and cream. Designed with Rolling Hills Flower Mart, our centerpiece was elegant and classic on a gold-and-diamond riser foundation topped with an abundance of white peonies and beautiful caramel-colored roses, gold garland, and tea lights. Finally, we set the table using cream china with a simple gold design, copper charger and silverware, black napkin and a diamond-covered napkin ring.
Together with our clients, the hotel production crew, and our vendors, the Relevé Unlimited design team delivered a memorable high holiday glamour event with sparkling, elegant décor, beautiful colors, and incredible entertainment.
