Everyone knows that CORT Events can throw a party and their recent event in my hometown of Dallas was the best yet! Color Me CORT pushed boundaries in event space design and kept guests guessing all night long. With more than 250 VIP attendees, including LeeAnne Locken from the Real Housewives of Dallas in attendance, the evening was absolutely sparkling. Held at Venue Forty|50, I emceed this unforgettably vibrant and exciting evening!
Working with event designers from Perfect Surroundings, Intl., the event space was drenched in color and light to bring the theme of the evening, Color Me CORT, to life.
Sassies, you have never been to an event like this one. Every aspect of this event pushed the boundaries of color and event design. Perfect for an absolutely gorgeous night in Dallas, the event space also played up the indoor/outdoor trend by blending the lively indoor space with a quieter “zen” outdoor patio space, designed with unique configurations of the modular Dune collection. Indoors, Luna columns adorned with beautiful custom graphics added a touch of personalization while bathing the room in a warm glow, and unpredictable combinations of accent pillows added another level of vibrancy throughout the venue. Out-of-the-box furniture arrangements, including six hexagonal seating arrangements, encouraged conversation and mingling.
For those of you planning an elegant evening, don’t be afraid of a little extra creativity! Color Me CORT showcased how a colorful event can be just as refined as a black and white event, reminding me how fun it is to play and experiment with unconventional designs. CORT Events was inspired by Dallas’ wild side to host an event that was completely unexpected and engaging. The amazing CORT Events team mixed traditional Fielding chairs with Hayworth cocktail tables, and sleek Baja Sofas with versatile Beverly Bench Ottomans made the space feel eclectic yet comfortable and curated. Another fun surprise was the pop art and graffiti wall that brought an edge and youthful energy to the atmosphere.
Throughout the evening, CORT Events surprised and delighted VIP attendees with experiential entertainment and awesome prizes. Singers, dancers and disco ninjas lit up the dance floor and pumped up the party. Prizes throughout the night included fine food and drink, a food tour of Dallas, a Ritz Carlton spa package, Apple products and designer travel gear.
I have to thank CORT Events for this colorful night in Dallas. The ambiance and energy were truly unforgettable, and I am so impressed by this out-of-box concept as well as the immaculate attention to detail and thought given to the guest experience. Congratulations to everyone on a perfect evening and y’all know I’m already ready for the next event!
