Van Gogh “Up Close” Inspires Light and Floral Designs

Written by Marnie on February 3, 2012

A hint of Spring is in the air, creating the a perfect setting for the Van Gogh Up Close exhibit to open to the public at The Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Inspired by Van Gogh, the Dutch Post-Impressionist noted for his bold color and rough beauty, TableArtEventions Productions and Stephen Starr Events created a memorable Opening Gala for the Van Gogh Up Close exhibition. A special thanks to the fabulous Marie Labbancz who captured the evening with her incredible photography.

The evening began by leading guests up the Great Stair Hall
through a path of blooming branches.
The Eventions Team added dramatic branch gobo’s. The effect was spectacular!

The contrast between the modern square mirrored charger
and the navy shimmer linen was elegant and dramatic.

Guest tables were placed around the Upper Balcony overlooking the Great Stair Hall.
Trailing down the center of each table were modern still life floral arrangements created from oncidium orchids, craspedia, fringed tulips and calla lilies accented
with birch branches and twinkling lights.

An amazing image captured by Marie Labbancz.

Twinkling lights in the arrangements could be seen from across the balcony.
For added ambience loose lavender rose petals were placed inside LED votives.

It was a pleasure to work with each of the talented professionals
to create a memorable evening celebrating Vincent Van Gogh.
