August 2023 Private Event at the Breslin Center | Michigan Event Planner + Design Team
This once-in-a-lifetime private event was held at the Breslin Center in East Lansing, Michigan. This was the second event of the weekend! You can check out night one here. The night before was a classy, formal sit-down dinner event. Tonight, was all about the party! Guests were greeted with three beautiful registration tents and handed a glass of champagne. After checking in, they made their way through the Gilbert Pavilion Entrance of the Breslin Center. The sounds of a String Quartet played while they enjoyed appetizers and custom drinks. The MSU Hockey team was even serving apps on rollerskates!
Our design reflected a mid-century modern vibe with a nod to the 70’s. Reviews from guests who attended the event included, “The details, both large and small, were dazzling and magnificent…” and “Every detail was impeccable and no detail was forgotten.”
The Gilbert Pavilion + Tom Izzo Hall of History Design
This area had 3 bars, 2 photo booths, 4 soft seating sections, and plenty of cocktail and bistro tables for guests to sit down and enjoy the themed food station.
The Arena Details
After an hour and a half of mingling, guests made their way down to the area floor for more spectacular details! The step entrance was flanked by floral and wood arches to indicate the entrance to the arena.
The Stage Details
40 feet of color-blocked floral sat on custom planter boxes to line the stage! We also had custom neon letters, showcasing the school years. One of the best moments was the attendees pulling our roses from the stage and handing them to The Temptations while they performed!
The Disco Balls
We chose to have 3 themed bars that were a slight nod to the entertainment that night. A fire bar, a stone bar, and an ice bar. They were such a hit!
The Floral and Design Details
We surrounded the large custom-designed and wrapped dance floor with endless soft seating and 4 large pergolas with even more soft seating underneath. We brought in 194 potted plants to create a cozy environment.
Plenty of mixed seating included round tables, banquet tables, and bistro tables for all party sizes.
No two centerpieces were alike! Each one was created by our floral team, who were given the freedom to design whatever their heart felt like. Which, made this event extra special!
We brought in 3 different custom-wrapped cocktail tables which had each of the schools’ mascots on top.
Signage + Stationery
All of the signage was custom and designed in-house! Guests had the opportunity to visit 7 different food stations throughout the night.
There are so many more little details that came together to make this day so special for the attending guests. The custom food menu brought the guests back to their high school glory days. Custom tokens for the guest to take home at the end of the night! The list goes on and on. Guests danced the night away to Three Dog Night AND The Temptations! Even our team was able to meet the bands and enjoy the concert. A core forever memory if you ask us!
This monumental event was 3+ years in the making and we are forever grateful to have played such a pivotal role in this event.
