What a fulfilling and honorable event to have the pleasure of designing each year. Van Andel Institute's annual Hope on the Hill Gala is always a spectacular event, and 2015's theme was "Under the Big Top". Along with the incredible gentlemen at Special Events Rental and the planning committee from VAI, this night turned out to be a huge success. We paired primary colors of scarlet red, bold blue, and pops of sunshine yellow to create a classic and vintage circus vibe in the large event space. Vendor tents for all the catering and striped fabric draping helped transform the space into a carnival dream! The cherry on top were the incredible circus performers from Red Moon Entertainment in Chicago, including a fantastic wine bike, champagne chandelier acrobat, snake charmer, fortune teller, and so much more.
