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!

The A Joy Wallace Design Team had the opportunity to bring the jungle to life at the the Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo, FL.  For this event, we brought our camera crew to film a time lapse video of how the event came together.

Textures & fabrics included leather, burlap and wood. The color palette was full of earthy tones enhanced by the mood lighting. The perimeter featured a variety of plants & trees to finish the jungle effect.

The Ocean Reef Club is a beautiful private club located in Key Largo. Part of the magic of working in design is having the opportunity to take already stylized spaces and turn them into a completely different experiences for event guests. We’re excited to share this with you via video!
