An Open House is an opportunity for a venue to be able to showcase their venue, food and service to industry professionals as well as clients. Last August we had the opportunity to partner up with Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse. Located on International Drive in Orlando, Del Frisco’s is the perfect location for a corporate meeting, holiday parties, milestone celebration or wedding. We had the honor of hand selecting an amazing vendor team to help us pull off our largest event yet. We designed 9 different event spaces for a variety of special occasions. Our purpose was to show the guests how each space could be transformed to suit their needs. Our Gorgeous Photos were captured by the talented Damon Tucci.
As guests entered into the lobby bar we had a Orlando Magic theme, featuring blue uplighting complete with a Magnet Photo Booth,by Magnafoto Magic Dancers and Specialty Cocktails. DJ Jim of Fyer Fly Productions had all the guests dancing and feeling that lounge vibe.
Just off the lobby bar in front of the famous fireplace is Table 100, comprised of a long table with a metal arch and shelf. Inspired by the bright colored piece of art by this table we went with a very fun design for a birthday celebration. The pastel colored ribbons hung from the arch and a variety of bright florals adorned the shelf to add a fun flair. We complemented the fun floral with silver chargers from Orlando Wedding and Party Rentals.
The Barrel Room was the perfect setting for our Holiday Party Set up, perfect in Red & Green Holiday Plaid linens from Over the Top Linens, complete with a Christmas Tree and Presents. Our centerpieces were made up of an assortment of lighted holiday presents and containers filled with lights and ornaments. Each place setting was completed with a cute personalized Favor from our friends at Paper Goat Post. Just the right amount of holiday cheer!
A guest favorite the Oak room was decorated for a very lucky UCF Graduate. This crazy design was an idea from our super creative friend Eric of Greenery Productions. He actually hung streamers from the ceiling to the table and complete with a Candy Cart of black and Gold UCF themed candy and desserts from Florida Candy Buffets The Place card was a mix of black and gold megaphones with the guests names written in calligraphy on it.
Looking to host a meeting? The Executive Boardroom is the perfect setting for any company retreat. Perfect for the Sunshine State we decorated this room with Florida Charm, Oranges and Citrus. Guests could also enjoy lunch from Del Frisco’s while getting some work done.
Table 77 sits in the back corner of the restaurant and is under a gorgeous chandelier. We designed this space for an intimate Anniversary Celebration. Using tones in Blue, Burgundy, Orange, Yellow and Green we brought out the natural beauty of the space.
Just off the front of the restaurant we had some amazing furniture from our friends at CHIC Event Furniture Rentals and a Cigar Roller. A Party is not complete unless you are smoking hand rolled cigars from Old Fashioned Cigar Roller.
As we head upstairs we dedicated this area to weddings. Whether it’s a rehearsal dinner, a ceremony or a dinner reception the space was perfect. As you enter the upstairs lobby there is a myriad of cut glass pendants hanging from the ceiling with the chevron barback. Perfect for a gatsby style event or very modern. We decided to use the bar as the backdrop and silver industrial chairs to complete the look. Gorgeous Topiaries accented with my favorite flower gardenia was just the right amount of decor.
The Eagle’s Nest was perfect for a Wine Themed Rehearsal Dinner. We used old wine boxes as the containers for the wine and white florals and even incorporated mini grape bunches as well to go with the vineyard theme.
Our Wedding Reception was inspired by Nantucket, using hues of Navy, White, Blush and accents of gold. Our Hedge walls were the perfect backdrop for our showstopping cake by Party Flavors Custom Cakes. A blush colored three tier cake with an elongated middle tier was perfect for our gold hand painted floral design. We used the existing furniture from the venue as it lent to the look and feel accented with galvanized lanterns and florals in blush tones. Inside the upstairs lounge was a display of miniature desserts on a vintage dresser. The perfect Ending to any event is cake
Not every event needs to be a major production. Sometimes you just need a private place to have a lunch meeting or gather friends to celebrate.
