Unexpected Inspiration

December 14, 2009

Sometimes inspiration surprises you, popping out of the most unexpected venues.  Such was the case when the boyfriend and I attended our company’s annual holiday party,  thrown at the Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum.

These massive black-tie parties have always been fabulous in the past, but never before incorporated such modern decor as I saw this year.  This glowing red scene greeted us as we walked in:

Small tables of food sitting beneath the NASA Space Shuttle looked incredibly festive with towering, massive displays of hot pink ostrich feathers.  I never would have thought either the color or the feather could be striking, but the combination of the two proved to be quite striking in the dimly lit museum.

As I mentioned last week, I looove almost any decor that incorporates sticks or branches, especially glittery ones.  Thus was the case with this fabulous, glittery arrangement on a dessert table:

These red sticks were pretty awesome amidst the red leather couches and red lighting, and I definitely dug the cylindrical and minimalistic table bases:

All in all, I think I liked the decor even more than the food this year!  What do you think?  Too crazy and flamboyant for you?

    Erin – I did not. I can’t afford to lose my job for theft. :) But how awesome are they? I’m sure they could be DIYed easily. I’d love to do that on my dining table for a party!!
