Event: Warner Music Nashville CMA After Party
Date: November 4, 2015
Venue: Warner Music Nashville Offices
Event Designer: Natalie Finley
This year Warner Music Nashville cranked up the eerie vibes and let Randi Events transform their offices into a turn of the century carnival-style event. We were inspired by the feelings of fear and excitement of the unknown, the perfect mix of American Horror Story meets Water for Elephants. As guests arrived they checked-in under wooden hangman posts that held antique lanterns.
Candelabras lined the path from check-in to the “big top”. Black and white ceiling drape romantically cradled the grand chandelier that softly lit the dance floor and spilled down the sides, creating our carnival atmosphere. Funhouse mirrored bars were topped with Patron specialty drinks, while guests enjoyed the look and definitely the taste of our “over the top” food display. To really set the mood we had Tarot Card and Palm Readers looking into guests pasts, presents, and futures.
The conference room was really our out of this world room, complete with a supernatural light tunnel, astrological signs projected behind midnight blue linen adorned food displays and wine-stained sequin linen bistro tables. Chef’s Market knocked our theme outta the park! With a menu that consisted of scrumptious popcorn shrimp, Muenster/Blueberry/Spinach grilled cheese sandwiches, freakishly good focaccia flatbread station, mini maple cotton candy and beignets with chocolate dipping sauce, just to name a few. Is your mouth watering yet??!
Keeping with our theme, we wanted the patio to have a bit of New Orleans flare, think second line. We suspended vintage umbrellas and Edison bulbs above our guests and had bicycle “Ferris” wheels behind our bars and our DJ who totally amped up the crowd with his killer tunes.
It was so incredible to create an event that zaps all the senses and that’s exactly what we did! Thanks to Warner Music Nashville, we can’t wait for next year!
