Roc Nation’s Grammy Brunch 2019

July 30, 2019 5:08 am Published by The Revelry Team

We loved being included in one of the most talked about events of the year, Roc Nation’s Grammy Brunch. Held at a private estate during Grammy weekend, the annual brunch brought together the best of the music industry, including Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Diddy, DJ Khaled, Usher, and more. SO Events designed and produced the gathering with a beautiful “Italian Garden” theme with beautiful floral designs by Celio’s Design. Guests entered under bright yellow and periwinkle blue umbrellas to find green hedges and cascading yellow flowers punctuated by framed images of previous brunch attendees. Inside the white tent, vibrant decor details included floral chandeliers and our blue and white furniture with pops of yellow. We provided custom laser cut bars, our Palermo Club Chairs and Paris Chandeliers. All... Read More

What an honor it was to be part of Rihanna’s Diamond Ball! Last year, Rihanna launched the first Diamond Ball, a black tie fundraiser to benefit Clara Lionel Foundation (CLF). CLF is dedicated to improving the quality of life for communities globally in the areas of health, education, arts and culture. Hosted by Kevin Hart, the 2015 Diamond Ball was a huge success.

You Only Live Once! Produced by Special Occasions Events

April 24, 2015 8:54 am Published by The Revelry Team

You Only Live Once! Produced and Designed by Marianne for Special Occasions Events. What a night…every detail was considered and coordinated. We love the repeat yellow and black pattern in the overall design. We provided the drapery, tables, chairs, mirrored wall panels and lounge pieces. Our Gold Venice furniture line was used to design the lounge area. Black yellow and white stripes were painted on mirrors and used as perimeter decor. Yellow Roses and Crystals hung from ribbons as part of the ceiling decor. Below you will also see a close up of the mirrored wall panels with a custom black, yellow and white hand painted design. The seating cards were placed on a mirror front bar that we hand painted with the theme colors...

Rihanna’s Diamond Ball

We were recently honored to participate in the design of Rihanna’s first annual Diamond Ball. This black-tie fundraiser benefited the Clara Lionel Foundation. The singer performed with a live orchestra at The Vineyard, a private 157-acre enclave located in Beverly Hills. The Diamond Ball – which also included a dinner and live auction – hosted an estimated 600 guests, “ranging from entertainment and business executives to celebrities and philanthropists.” Coordinated by Special Occasions Events, Empty Vase provided the florals, and lighting by Images by Lighting. Thank you Kevin Weinstein Photography for these gorgeous photographs. Below are our favorite pieces from the fundraiser.

Irish Pub Birthday Party with Special Occasions Event Planning

June 18, 2014 12:19 pm Published by The Revelry Team

From Special Occasions Event Planning… The entrance was transformed to look like a real pub entrance (so much so, that hotel guests thought it was a real pub while we were setting up!), and was finished with a custom hand painted sign with our pub’s name, “Zaxnamara’s Pub.” We brought in a custom bar complete with a  keg of Guinness on tap and a selection of the best of Irish beer and whiskey. We covered the existing walls with wood panels.  The doorways were dressed using hand painted signs of our favorite Irish quotes. We went on several “hunts” at local flea markets, estate sales, and prop houses to find the perfect items and signs to adorn the wood panels.  One of the...

The Montage in Beverly Hills was transformed for this Hollywood Regency Style 60th  birthday party with the design direction of Marianne Weiman Nelson from Special Occasions Event Planning as well as Eric Buterbaugh, Images by Lighting, Classic Party Rentals and No Static Pro AV. From Marianne of Special Occasions Event Planning… “Inspired by the dramatic styling of the Hollywood Regency Period, I worked closely with the talented Ashley Coleman and Edgar Zamora of Revelry Event Designers to create a high contrast vision using sharp yellow and glossy black. French windows draped with taupe and canary yellow fabric accented the ballroom. Large mirrors with hand-painted dramatic lines in glossy white, black and sharp yellow created the authentic transformation into the Regency period.” Read the full post... Read More
