The Special Event Gala Awards

The Special Event Gala Awards

Emerald City Designs was awarded Best Floral Design 2012 at The Special Event Gala Awards this past Friday in Chicago, Illinois. Each year Special Events Magazine recognizes the finest work in special events worldwide. To win, entries from across the globe must survive three rounds of judging by members of the Special Events Magazine Advisory Board. Emerald City Designs received this award for “A Floral Romance Sanctuary” in which our designers created a stunning sweetheart table with cascading floral. The design itself encompassed a six-foot rectangular sweetheart table, entirely covered with natural botanical’s, plus a large backdrop adorned with verdant moss to offset key features to identify and announce the bridal couple, pulled together and framed by rich organza curtains to resonate the vintage theme. The entire design was a palette of whites, ivories, crèmes, blushes, champagnes and smoky grays, with touches of brighter magentas to enliven the unique visual aspect of the theme. Below are photos of the award winning floral design.
