An Afternoon Tea at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel

June 21st, 2011

Recently we had the pleasure of hosting an afternoon tea and fashion show at the gorgeous Beverly Wilshire Hotel. We partnered with some of our favorite and most talented people in the event industry to create something truly unique and memorable. The afternoon began on the stunning Rodeo Terrace which, as the name suggest, overlooks the famous Rodeo Drive and is the perfect space for a cocktail party or ceremony. We wanted to create 4 separate tents that evoked a different feel and Revelry Event Designers created some of the most gorgeous mandaps and tents we have ever seen coupled with their custom made furniture that would make you want to shop in their warehouse. We created a faux ceremony area and the mandap was a plexiglass structure dripping in stunning flowers designed by the talented Eddie Zarastian of Tic Tock Couture Flowers-something people have never seen!

Youngsong Martin of Wildflower Linen amazed everyone with her signature fashion show in which she transforms her linen into beautiful haute-couture cocktail dresses and ball gowns. As guests enjoyed their cocktails and delicious hors deourves, the lovely models would mingle through the crowd draped in Young's fashions-Incredible!

Following cocktail hour, we moved down to the Grand Trionon Room for the formal tea. Upon entering the room, guests were welcomed by a beautiful, lush archway of flowers including roses, hydrangea, peonies, and plum branches (to name a few) where they then were seated at any of the amazing vignettes of furniture created by Revelry. While tea and finger sandwiches were served, the Regional Vice President and General Manager of the Beverly Wilshire, Mr. Radha Arora, greeted and welcomed the guests and then introduced Nikki who thanked all of her guests and sponsors involved in creating such a spectacular event.

  • #Repost @archdigest - #JacquesArpels was inspired by the clover shapes in architecture inspiring him to design his famous Alhambra collection, which is also our inspiration for one of our upcoming events! #inspirationeverywhere #designinspiration #eventdesign #alhambra #moorisharchitecture #vancleefarpels ・・・
Half a century ago, inspired by the decorative patterns Jacques Arpels observed on his travels, @vancleefarpels launched Alhambra—a clover-shaped gold medallion resembling a Moorish quatrefoil. “As an architectural element, it appears in almost every culture,” says Van Cleef & Arpels’s current president and CEO, Nicolas Bos. “In jewelry, it’s just as adaptable.” Today the French luxury brand remains captivated by the motif, having reimagined it in myriad styles and stones. This past May, to mark the Alhambra collection’s 50th anniversary, Van Cleef launched nine new pieces with a party at the 16th-century El Badi Palace in Marrakech. While celebrating with them, AD found a few more not-to-miss sights in Marrakech, including the  14th-century Islamic college Ben Youssef Madrasa pictured here.
