When the epitome of feminine elegance and business acumen decides to collide, the result is nothing short of spectacular. Enter the Galentine’s Day Gala 2023. Orchestrated by the indomitable Sherri J, it’s a Houston event that elevated the celebration of female entrepreneurs to stratospheric levels. That said, let us show you what one day looks like as a destination event planner!
The weekend-long journey at The Post Oak Hotel in Uptown Houston began with registration. Emanating glamour and prestige, this was one memorable registration suite! White hydrangeas, roses, anthuriums, and orchids accented floral, custom lounge furniture, and a striking backdrop, it was a truly enriching atmosphere of endless possibilities. Yes, from the first step inside this Houston event, you’re not just a guest but a legend in the making.
Saturday kicked off with the Beauty Breakfast and Business Panel. Guests traversed a branded tunnel with a resounding message: “Don’t Be A Lady, Be A Legend.” As they entered the Oak Ballroom, it was like stepping into a Pinterest-perfect world. We ensured all the details were kept in check. The shades of pink and gold adorned the stage, balanced by dramatic floral arrangements and blush lounge furniture.
Robust discussions on female leadership and empowering keynotes electrified the air of the Houston event. And there were bold panels that didn’t shy away from tackling the challenges and triumphs of womanhood in the business realm.
But ladies, we know you’re multifaceted beings. So, as the sun dipped, the same Oak Ballroom transformed into a pulsating pink dance party. Completed with blush sequin tables and mesmerizing candlelight, it was an entirely different world! The highlight was the DJ bar, wrapped in blush pink with a golden logo decal. It fueled the evening with beats that resonated as strongly as the day’s conversations. With our Atlanta event planning services planning destination events worldwide, we leave no stone unturned!
Sunday began with a very special brunch for the honorees. It gave the opportunity to highlight their accomplishments before getting ready for the gala.
We capped off the weekend with the Dripping in Gold Awards Gala. From gold sequin walls to art-inspired, floral-filled platforms, the Cocktail Hour was not just a prelude. It was an overture to what women can manifest when they embrace their authentic selves. Custom-built bars, luxe lounges, and interactive photo moments had every guest feeling like the belle of the ball.
And then, the doors opened to heaven — or what event planners in Atlanta imagine heaven to be like. Guests were serenaded by a gospel choir as they walked through a white floral tunnel leading to a gold-wrapped dance floor, all happening under a lavish gold fringe ceiling. The room itself of the Houston event was wrapped in ivory drapes, culminating in a striking stage that bore the weight of awards recognizing phenomenal women.
Yes, it was a crescendo of female excellence, underscored by a heap of details like blush koi linen tables. The crystal Napoleon chairs with ivory pads and every imaginable nuance in between topped the spectacle.
We don’t just revel in the splendor of the venue or the aesthetics. It’s in seeing women’s empowerment in their totality, in business and social settings, that our satisfaction truly lies.
So, as we say adieu to this year’s Galentine’s Day Gala, we are left contemplating how honored we were to have curated a Houston event like this. This was not just a feast for the senses but a nurturing haven for the soul.
Until then, let’s toast to a weekend that set new benchmarks in glamour, business, and, most importantly, sisterhood. Cheers, legends! While you’re sipping, make sure to check out some of our other work as event planners based in Atlanta!
