Event Design by Cure Design Group // Theme: “1904 World’s Fair”
Partnering with Gateway180: Homelessness Reversed is a mindful pursuit of just that; raising awareness and reversing homelessness forever. The volunteers and staff at this organization dedicate their lives to this mission.
Cure Design Group became involved nearly 5 years ago. Chairing the Design and Decor committee for their annual benefit gala each and every year since has provided us with opportunities to visit the shelter, conduct art days with the kiddos, meet the clients and residents and understand how Gateway 180 is different in their mission. Assisting in the overall décor and design of their annual gala has been quite the assignment, volunteering countless hours each and every year is always worth it in the end. I just wish we could get to enjoy the event a little longer, a years worth of planning set up and taken down after a 4 hour event tends to be a little sad after its all over…
The evening was complete with amazing LIVE and SILENT auction items to suit a array of styles, tastes and desires, from trips, to art, and of course a Cure Design Group Design Consultation, Congratulations to our winner!!
Renovating their front lobby was one of the most fun we have had at the shelter to date, remember the story? Well, if not, or you want to check it out again, here ya go! https://curedesigngroup.com/wordpress/cure-design-group-blog/design-of-the-day-makeover.html
Each year, we set out to design a gala unique to its predecessor, having 4 consecutive gala’s in the same location, Palladium St Louis [our wedding venue] we always strive to come up with explosive decor that will stand alone.
This years theme and inspiration was a hit! “World’s Fair” but not in a literal way, but in the most elegant take on vintage I could find decor to express what my take on a chic Vintage Carnivale. Draping the room with black and gold, we brought in gold chavari chairs that flanked the guest tables, Hot air balloons lit up the space and a mix of gold candelabras and mercury apothecary jars with floral centerpieces, mixed with cottonwood branches and wheat for a vintage touch.
