Event designer Diane Amante and the X-Quisite Flowers & Events team were tasked with transforming the Westchester Country Club’s classically elegant ballroom into an intimate lounge for a Happy Everything Party! This new trend asks, who needs to count the years when you can celebrate a life full of accomplishments? These all-out celebrations are great events to design – mixing the intimacy of a cocktail party with the scale of a big birthday bash!
The transformation started with the X-Quisite Team emptying the entire space, including the outdoor terrace, and laying down white carpet inside and out.
Next, the X-Quisite Team was tasked with turning the large ballroom that could accommodate over 300 people into an intimate lounge for a smaller party. Framework was set up for elegant white draping, creating the illusion of a smaller space and creating the perfect backdrop for the lighting and LED furniture that was still to come.
Using the white carpet as a base, the patio became an extension of the ballroom and the perfect spot for a dance floor with strands of lights above creating a canopy over dancers.
The colors of the night – Lavender and Robin’s Egg Blue – livened up the space from the glowing LED furniture, the linens and the lounge décor to the colorful patterned splashes of light indoors and out!
Inside the ballroom, the guest tables for dinner emitted a soft blue glow accented by chic modern centerpieces. Squares of Lucite surrounded by mercury glass votives held floating Cymbidium Orchids and candles over dainty crystals.
The bar and buffet featured blooming cherry blossoms in oversize white vases and adorned with hanging candles.
The outdoor space featured blue LED high boys with candles floating in silver mercury vessels to catch the twinkling lights above.
Sleek white modern leather sofas with purple accent cushions and glowing lavender tables brought a club feel to the patio.
The space was carefully designed to create an easy open area for the buffet with elevated food stations.
The large bar was strategically placed to create a space for guests to mingle inside, while still being easily accessible to the outside lounge area.
The terrace featured two lounges, a dance floor, and space for two different styles of table seating.
The Westchester Country Club’s ballroom was given a completely refreshed look, revealing a young-at-heart spirit that this Celebration of Life was all about! The X-Quisite Team looks forward to more of these parties; this is definitely a trend we can celebrate!
