After last year's success in Dr. Phillips with a Phantom of the Opera-inspired masquerade, this year we joined forces with Daisy's Party Rentals to create the Black & White Masquerade in Lake Nona.
The event had My Realty Group, Dr. G, Kidsville Pediatrics, American Title Trust, Advance Credit PR, Kidiverse, HOW Motors, The Mortgage MVP, and Quantum Funding uniting not only socialites and locals but also a lot of people from the Orlando and Lake Nona real estate scene.
This year's inspiration came from elegant elements and symbols such as Black Swan and white orchids which reflected on the names of sparkling cocktails in black and white as well as the decor and even the outfit of some entertainers like Lessa Hoop who included black feathers on her outfit.
Guests arrived at Dockside in Lake Nona and were received by giant marquee letters from the main sponsor MY REALTY at 7 pm for cocktail hour with views of the lake as they received their masks, natural black roses for the women, goodie bags, and champagne. Meanwhile, a live violinist played and One Creative Media took pictures of the arriving guests seating at a giant white throne from Daisy's Party Rentals.
As they were introduced to the room, a black and white sparkly decor received them with orchids falling from decadent centerpieces and black diamonds shined on vases with flickering candles.
Decor sponsors and creators included our Stand Out VIP Events division, Daisy's Party Rentals, Pooof Productions, and Amelia's Parties.
To increase the sensory experience, a special scent had been sprayed throughout the room and tablecloths before the event and the tables were designed so that no table had the same decor.
Dinner served by Canvas restaurant was full of surprises such as a hoop artist, singer song-writer Maria Laury and a special moment sponsored by Macy's from Millenia Mall and CG Icon Model Agency where the room dimed lights and suddenly the room floor was filled with smoke while models in glitzy outfits walked all over the room to the sound of Sia's "I'm unstoppable".
The night ended with a delicious cake sponsored by Magaly's, music, and dancing with a mirrored stilt walker.
Here you have the video and some of the photos of the gorgeous event. We are already thinking of the theme for next year!
