This autumn has been a busy season for us at In Bloom and we are excited to share some photos from another beautiful event earlier this month. The Dia Art Foundation held their fall gala hosted my Giorgio Armani at a fantastic venue, Tribeca 360. Dia is currently launching a new space to showcase exhibitions and feature readings by world-renowned poets. They came to us to with a very Armani look and asked us to help pull the space together. The space itself features windows that wrap around the entire room to showoff the incredible views. The tables consisted of two white cubes topped with plexiglass; clean, simple and modern. Everything in the space had a very specific look, from the square plates to the podium that was actually clear lucite to the flowers arranged in long rectangular vases. The look was modern and very well put together. The simplicity of it all allowed the eyes to catch the skyline peering from the windows and beautiful views of the Hudson.
We kept the centerpieces simple with just two long arrangements featuring steel grass and a single phalaenopsis orchid stem. The steel grass provided support and a contrasting color to show off the beautiful orchid and allowed for a simple and clean look. We also placed square votives on the table in keeping with the square/rectangular look of the event.
To dress the bars we created arrangements that tied in with the centerpieces featuring extra long stems of orchids, steel grass and different types of greenery. The tall vases bring the eyes up and allows the orchids to naturally hang.
There was also several 'pop-up' ponds around the room which we floated monstera leaves and anthurium in. Water is a great and unexpected element to bring into a space and ties in nicely with the grand views of the Hudson just outside the windows.
The deep set windows allowed a great place to bring in some warm lighting with floating candles and attract the guests to the windows to enjoy the views.
As the sun set the room was coming together and look was almost complete. The warm rays of sun set the mood for some great snapshots of the almost finished product. The flowers were soaking up the beautiful sunlight and the floating candles were glowing before we even had a chance to light them.
The simplicity of this space spoke volumes and everything came together perfectly with all the last minute details. Such a great organization doing so much for the community and bringing attention to some fantastic artist, glad we could be part of it.
