Creating magic at Jazz at Lincoln Center

It has been a while since I shared photos from any of my recent events.  There have really been some beautiful events in the last several months that I want to share.  One of my favorites was a corporate event that I designed at "Jazz at Lincoln Center"  

Located in the Time Warner Center, Jazz at Lincoln center is a beautiful venue with great views of Columbus Circle and Central Park.  While we had an early morning with set-up starting at 4AM, it was worth it to see the spectacular sunrise looking down Central Park South.  


For this event my client wanted a fresh, clean look that was not over the top.  I used the simplicity of the space which features large windows and clean lines as my inspiration for the design. 

For the color palette I decided to go with rich purple and lavender floral on silver linens to create the clean look that the client wanted.  I really like how the combination of glass and stainless steel containers worked in the centerpieces.

Before guests were escorted in to the Allen Room they were treated to an amazing cocktail hour catered by the always fabulous Great Performances.  I love working in the Ertegun Atrium with its high ceilings and views.  It is a large space so I like to place a dramatic bar in the center of the room as a focal point when guests enter.  

We continued the look throughout the room with sleek simple cocktail arrangements and floral accents for the food stations.

And yes, the beer and bacon pairing station was amazing!

With cocktails finished, guests were escorted into the Allen Room for the main event.  For dramatic effect guests entered from the top level of the room so they could get the full view of the gorgeous room.

It really was a spectacular setting and I think the decor was perfect.  As always, the key to any successful event is a happy client and in this case they certainly were.

Until the next big event...
