Guest engagement was our top priority, and our goal was to keep guests guessing. We set up a totally different look for each remarkable stage of the evening. We welcomed guests in a lush, red velvet lounge that invoked a sense of anticipation and passion. This entrance was a tangible contrast to the clean and crisp setting of the dinner reception, where abundant pastel lavender and green arrangements in both tall and low versions anchored each tablescape.
The birthday guests dined on a gourmet multi-course meal, enjoying exclusive wine pairings from Chassagne Montrachet and the famous Cheval Blanc winery. The once-in-a-lifetime birthday extravaganza was bigger than life. Even the cake was three meters wide!
Entertainment was provided by the internationally-renowned, all-female classic-crossover group, “The Masques.” The ensemble of world-class musicians has performed for many world leaders and has even wowed royalty. As enthralled as guests were with their incredible music and choreography, nothing was a more welcome surprise than a special appearance by the Gipsy Kings.
