An industry known for throwing fabulous parties must go all out when it’s time to celebrate their own, right? This year’s San Francisco NACE Gala was no exception, with a glamorous Rococo theme that was the epitome of French chic. The Franciscan Room of the Sir Francis Drake Hotel was transformed into an opulent ballroom to allow some of the Bay Area’s top wedding and event professionals to celebrate the end of the season in style. We love being a part of such a thriving, creative community, especially the chance to collaborate with so many talented people!
This year’s gala was no exception, with Charmed Events Group behind the luxurious Rococo theme. The hotel’s cream on blue color scheme inspired our palette, with long tables of our Lamour Blue Light linens topped with floral table runners in Peony Ivory. Frances Lane provided place settings worthy of Marie Antoinette with carved ivory chargers and vintage glassware in pastel shades of pink and blue. Two of our favorite Bay Area floral designers, The Petal Company and Nicole Ha Designs, provided lush centerpieces of delicate pastel flowers accented with gold leaves. A blend of French inspired Louis chairs and clear ghost chairs from Blueprint Studios added a fun modern twist on the vintage theme!
