Circus Nights Benefit Gala
The Circus Nights Gala raised money and awareness for the Sam S. and Rose Stein Emergency Care Center, the only emergency care center in the San Diego region solely dedicated to caring for kids, as well as the only center in San Diego County designated as a Level 1 pediatric trauma center. Hosted by the, Rancho Santa Fe Unit of Rady Children’s Hospital, over 350 guests attended the Circus Nights Gala at The Grand Del Mar. The event was dream-like, with different elements making this event out of this world.
As guests entered the main room, they walked through an arch made of two 10 foot long LED trees, with crawling fog covering the ballroom floor, which allowed guests to feel like they were walking amongst the clouds.
The dream-like feel did not stop there, three styles of tables were created to contribute to the extravagant feel of the evening. What is special about the tables, is the amount of detail that each table had. The first style of table was a mirrored family style table, with whimsical cloudy, upscale flowers such as, cymbidium, phaelopis orchids, and catelaya. White pill candles also adorned the tables, creating a warm glow throughout the room.
The second style of table consisted of a LED center, creating an ethereal glow, topped with fun floral arrangements that consisted of floating candles and a variety of glass votives.
The third style of tables surrounded the ballroom and were covered in a beautiful Silver Shantung linen with a white sheer Fantasia swirl overlay. To complete the look, white orchids and other silver and white elements, as well as floating candles, were used to create a beautiful centerpiece.
Even though each table was created with different design elements, they tied the room together perfectly.
The night was not only aesthetically pleasing, but featured exceptional entertainment as well. The internationally acclaimed troupe, “Il-Circo” performed their cirque style show, “Vilaggio”. Late night snacks and desserts, auctions, and dancing also contributed to the spectacular atmosphere
Circus Nights was a beautiful event for a great cause, and I loved contributing to an event that makes such a positive impact on peoples lives!
