Waterford Wednesday: ILEA Gala 2017

It’s Waterford Wednesday – and we’ve got a post full of pretty for you!
Last month, we had the opportunity to attend the 2017 ILEA (International Live Events Association) Gala held at The Historic Post Office! Our very own Alyse and Rebecca were part of the gala committee tasked with planning the beautiful “A Night Under the Stars” themed event. Not only were we excited to be attending, but also providing all of the linens and chiavari chairs for the Gala! With a top notch vendor list that included some of Hampton Roads best, this was an event that we will remember for a long time! Dragon Studio captured the most beautiful photos at the Gala – check out some of our favorite shots below, and check out his blog post for more!Amazing, right? It’s unbelievable how talented Hampton Roads event professionals are! To be able to transform an already beautiful venue into something so magical is no small feat, and it definitely took a village! Since the Gala was held at The Historic Post Office this year, our beautiful mahogany chiavari chairs that we store onsite at the venue were able to be utilized. In addition to our chairs, we made sure to bring some sparkle with our Black Tinsel linen, Black Petal linen, Champagne Sequin Runners, and Navy Polyester Napkins adorning the tables. The darker colors matched the theme perfectly and complimented the STUNNING dripping lights that Stage Right Lighting set up. Our Gold Beaded Glass Chargers were placed at each seat and surrounded by Chic Unique Vintage Rentals & Events vintage china, Sweetwater Cuisine meals, Candie’s Treats individual naked cakes, and  Isha Foss Events beautiful centerpieces!

We can’t wait for all of the amazing networking and educational opportunities ILEA Hampton Roads has planned over this next year!

Vendor Love!
