Savvy served on the committee for the annual Awards Gala for ISES Austin. We designed an outdoor tent area and an indoor space for the cocktail hour and after-party. Cocktail hour came in the form of a lavish garden party with a bright white tented area and silver accents. The guests adjourned for dinner, and when they returned, the sun had set and the space had been transformed.
Inspired by the first edition cover of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, blue lighting was used to transform the space entirely. We looked to go over the top with the details, including a floral chandelier and projecting the ISES logo onto a nearby hillside. The indoor speakeasy focused in on the Roaring Twenties with Art Deco designs and custom gobos. The DJ kept the party lively with his favorite electro swing and guests were taught how to do the Charleston. The dessert bar featured a croquembouche as the centerpiece, along with decadent absinthe flavored truffles. This truly was the party of the season in event society.
