An event theme is the central idea upon which the rest of the event is based and can therefore be the event's success or downfall. A theme can help to add structure and style to any event if chosen wisely. The client wanted a nautical theme for their VIP Reception at The Wharf Room in the Boston Harbor Hotel. With iconic views of the Boston Harbor waterfront, the twinkling lights of the city skyline, and the dramatic 19-foot ceiling with glittering chandeliers, this theme was perfect for the venue.
The space stood out from your standard nautical theme as it had aquatic touches carried out in every aspect of the event. From custom napkins, straws, serving trays and graphics, Senior Account Manager, Megan Woonton had the space oozing in style. She was even able to have an ice sculpture made to match the graphic element of a lighthouse throughout the print materials.
The attendees had flown from all over the country to attend this VIP reception. Having the event in the center of Boston was such a treat for those visiting the city for the first time. Megan had brought in large marquee letters as a focal point in the room over looking the gorgeous waterfront view. After dinner this marquee installation became the ultimate Instagram photo opportunity for guests. Later in the evening, Megan removed the "T" so guests could take their spot as the "T" in "Boston" for a gorgeous destination photo.
