OSF Pink Ball: An Island Oasis

In collaboration with co-chairs Dr. David & Anne Cable, and Dr. Stephen & Laura Minore, Event Floral was tasked with executing the design and production for the annual OSF Pink Ball.

For the 63rd annual event, Event Floral worked closely with the chairs to create an awe-inspiring look that would transport guests from the cold of winter to the serene ocean sights, sounds and smells of the Hawaiian Islands. A soft palette of neutral whites, ivories, tans and champagnes was accented with warm candlelight and pops of blush pink protea.

Event Floral designed and installed all of the décor, from full-room draping, dramatic backdrops, and exotic fresh floral centerpieces and arrangements to elegant table linen, custom chair treatments and stately bar facades and accent décor.

Once again, we had the privilege of partnering with Al Castrogiovanni and the Giovanni’s staff, Brent Hayes and the crew at SVL Productions, and OSF Saint Anthony Foundation Director Rick Zumwalt and team to create a truly unforgettable evening.

Below is a sampling of photos that show the detailed vision and the exquisite décor that is only fitting of the Pink Ball.

The entire room was draped in floor to ceiling drape, with specialty backdrops and doorway treatments accenting the room.

The design featured three styles of centerpieces. One style was a hanging centerpiece made of drift wood and ghost wood branches, dripping with white orchids and glass globes. Other styles accented this focal look with similar flowers and candles.

The tables were dressed in specialty champagne linens. Event Floral had custom sheer ivory chiffon chair sleeves made to dress up the chairs.
