A Family Affair with the Miami HEAT Charitable Foundation

A Family Affair with the Miami HEAT Charitable Foundation

Overlooking the bay, a family affair with the Miami HEAT made for another incredible evening with the HEAT Charitable Foundation!

Guests arrived at the American Airlines Arena just before sunset. As vehicles were whisked away, guests entered through the newly remodeled VIP Lexus entrance before enjoying cocktail hour inside the HEAT locker room.  The opportunity to mix and mingle with HEAT Players and key staff is one guests will likely never forget!

Guests moved to the beautiful Xfinity Plaza after cocktail hour, for a night of dinner and dancing. A twist on previous HEAT gala designs, this year’s color scheme swapped out red, for blush!  Our design concept for dinner used a modern mix of custom wrapped acrylic royal tables, and mirror-topped round tables. Each royal table was set with a black and white marble print, with black ghost chairs.  Additional accents include rose gold flatware and chargers.  Our round tables consisted used shimmering silver underlays with blush “coin” overlays plus a reflective mirror topper, set against clear acrylic ghost chairs.  For accents, we used hammered matte black flatware and swirled black and white charger for a smoke effect.

Because no party is complete without florals – we focused on white and blush tones of tulips, callas, anemones and more  in clear glass vases to show lots of gorgeous green stems. And of course = plenty of candlelight!

Along with plenty of fun and games with the HEAT players, the guests ended the evening with an incredible performance by Mary J. Blige!

Motown HEAT

Motown HEAT

We’re in Finals season, and Miami can definitely feel the HEAT!  Last week we produced the Miami HEAT Charitable Fund Gala at an amazing private residence in Coral Gables.  The theme this year was Motown, and featured special performances by The Temptations and The Four Tops.  As typical with outdoor events, rain was a threat, but thankfully held off until all were seated in the dinner tent and we were well on our way into the evening!  The HEAT team came out to support the donors, mixing, mingling and interacting via Motown inspired games that offered a little competition between tables.  Design features included custom illuminated Motown record bars, replica Championship rings for the napkins, glass cubes featuring the 2006 & 2012 championship rings, and walls featuring the Motown greats as perimeter decor. Check out more photos below!

Special thanks to Cendino Teme for the photography!
