American Cancer Society – 2012 Hope Gala

Foyer arrangement Hope Gala 2012 at Birmingham Country Club

We were honored to have been a part of the 2012 Hope Gala benefitting the American Cancer Society at the Country Club of Birmingham on Saturday. The response we have gotten from not only attendees but other vendors has been overwhelming.

One of the questions we have been asked frequently is what types of flowers and plants were used to create the look. The answer to this question can only come with some background information:

When we were approached by this year’s chairs to design the event, one of the first things we asked was what look they were trying to achieve.

The inspiration for the overall design of the event would be The Beverly Hills Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. Immediately, thoughts of palm trees, white, and tropical flowers came to mind.

The blooms chosen to adorn the guest table arrangements were a mixture of tropical flowers such as Ginger Lily, Dendrobium Orchids, Pincushion Protea, Phalaenopsis Orchid, Anthurium, Safari Sunset, and many more.

All arrangements were in a mixture of different sizes glass containers adorned with sliced fruit and a plethora of candles.

The tone of the event was set immediately upon arrival thanks to the talented team at Design Productions, headed by Andy Tolar. They provided white drapery thoughough the Club as well as soft pink uplighting.

The night was captured by the wonderful and amazingly talented Stacy Richardson of Stacy Richardson Photography. Stay tuned to see the full blog post with photos and more details of the event!
