The 2012 Holiday Season had Susan Gage Caterers on their toes and in the spirit as our calendar was full of festivities from small family gatherings to large company dinners.  We had a great time designing this event!

The Rotunda of the National Museum of Natural History was already charged with the twinkling grandeur of the 2012 holiday season.  Our idea was to paint this package with all the colors of a desert sunset.  The museum’s majestic African bull elephant greeted guests mid-stride, bathed in violet light.  Linens of rich yellow and fuchsia-red were woven with gold thread.  Clear and amber hued glasses glinted as the color drenched roses and hydrangea towered high.  Warm up-lighting of purple and gold washed tumbling white waterfalls of sheer draping and the stone walls.  It was a holiday safari.

In the end, Nutcracker sweets were enjoyed, miniature thin-mint floats were sipped and slowly, the festivities came to an end.  It is with thanks to our client, all the vendors who helped us make magic, and of course the unsurpassed beauty of the museum and their terrific staff that we look next to all that is to come in the new year.
