New Years Party

We spent New Years decorating a fabulous wine bar in Whitefish, Montana for their biggest party every year.  Our palette was white, grey, & silver.  There was a ton of glitz, a ton of glam, and even disco balls. We had a blast! 

The main event of the night was a fantastic DJ and band named Firefly.  With all the dancing, we had to make sure most of our decor was up high and out of the way.

For one of our main focal pieces, we created a multi dimensional bubble chandelier to accent the Champagne Room -- a favorite spot tucked away with comfy seating and romantic lighting.

During the night, the track lighting was focused on this piece - making it a beautiful source of light.

For the main room, we implemented a few simple elements to make the room pop without taking away from the dance floor. 

A curtain of crystals, silver, clear, and glittered ornaments hung from tulle and grey fabric to catch light from the disco balls.

We also hand dyed fabric using the ombre technique to achieve a gradation of dark grey to white to hang as panels above the seating area.

To carry the fun, sparkling essence of champagne throughout the venue, we created a piece of art on an 8' sheet of plywood that held quotes from Winston Churchill, Mark Twain, and other great figures in history.  We wanted this to be a very fun piece, and something people would actually read while mingling and enjoying the last of 2010.

"Come quickly, I am tasting the stars." is our favorite.

To finish the look, we added tinsel, silver trees, and to top it all off -- 2 disco balls that made everything sparkle.

We hope your New Years eve was full of fun, looking ahead, and resolution for 2011.  Cheers!
