This elegant Haunted Masquerade Breeders’ Cup cocktail party for 400 guests in the back yard of the Getty House was incredible! We worked with BrownHot Events to create this event in purple, black and silver that was perfect for a Halloween night.

We had five days for installation and a cooperative residence management team led by Patrick Brown, Executive Director of the Getty House Foundation. Jeff Brown of  BrownHot Events worked hard to maintain the integrity and preserve the maintenance of the existing property, while juggling more than six vendor teams throughout the week’s installation. Onsite security was required for the venue around the clock from installation to strike and limited neighborhood parking required offsite parking for crew and staff.

To work out the design and execution for the party, our Revelry expert Matias Doorn worked with Jeff Brown to review the overall scope and vision for the event. Matias then made a plan to bring the Haunted Masquerade vision to life. Jeff described the working relationship as “…a very enjoyable collaboration with a kindred design spirit. He’s always on the cusp of what’s fresh, luxe, chic and relevant to the BrownHot style of sophisticated funk and fun.”

After meeting with Jeff, we got to work and encased our chandeliers in Lucite cocktail tables that lit up when the lights went down. We created a black skull chandelier that hung above our round, custom-made bar in the center of the room. We also set up several lounge areas using our black, Prague furniture, oversized black ornate mirrors and black Lucite coffee tables. Our silver cocktail chairs and tables and mirrored bar and DJ stand gave the party a more modern look. The party was filled with ambiant lighting and fog to create a very spooky atmosphere.

BrownHot Events obtained some incredible entertainment for the party, which included actors dressed in dramatic costumes and DJ Ms. Nix on the turntables. DeBois Entertainment provided a classic band featuring 16-year-old vocal sensation Grant Davis, who might just be the next Michael Buble!
