Ritz Unlocked!

The holiday season is upon us, and we are so excited to be creating sparkly, cozy, festive décor for so many of our clients. As we get ready to plug in thousands of strands of lights all over town we’re looking back on this annual planner dinner hosted by the Ritz Carlton Chicago. These gorgeous shots captured by Amanda Hein Photography get us in the mood for Thanksgiving gratitude and put a jingle in our bells for all of the winter celebrations upon us. We love reminiscing on the incredible décor and design elements that truly brought this event to life.

We styled this ultra warm and luxurious Fall-meets-Winter ambiance with luxurious layers, using chargers and linens in metallics and a long napkin ombré of pastel hues from BBJ, laid back lounge settings from Cort Furniture Rental, elegant seating by Tablescapes Party Rentals, and classic stationery by Magnificent Milestones. To top all of that off, we gathered rich and romantic garden roses, parrot tulips, ranunculus, dahlias, amaryllis, magnolia, wild smilax vines and more into rose gold compotes, lit by a mélange of flickering crystal and mercury glass and our HD Heirloom brass candlesticks, to evoke a warm and welcoming setting, perfect for dinner conversation. From the seasonal cocktails and decadent menu to the fantastic company, this stunning dinner party will be a favorite for years to come!
