Special Occasions Event Planning

What an honor it was to be part of Rihanna’s Diamond Ball! Last year, Rihanna launched the first Diamond Ball, a black tie fundraiser to benefit Clara Lionel Foundation (CLF). CLF is dedicated to improving the quality of life for communities globally in the areas of health, education, arts and culture. Hosted by Kevin Hart, the 2015 Diamond Ball was a huge success.

This star-studded fundraiser was coordinated by Special Occasions Event Planning. We designed and provided furnishings throughout the space along with the incredible florals by Empty Vase. Thank you Kevin Weinstein for capturing the magic!

We were recently honored to participate in the design of Rihanna’s first annual Diamond Ball. This black-tie fundraiser benefited the Clara Lionel Foundation. The singer performed with a live orchestra at The Vineyard, a private 157-acre enclave located in Beverly Hills. The Diamond Ball – which also included a dinner and live auction – hosted an estimated 600 guests, “ranging from entertainment and business executives to celebrities and philanthropists.” Coordinated by Special Occasions Events, Empty Vase provided the florals, and lighting by Images by Lighting. Thank you Kevin Weinstein Photography for these gorgeous photographs.

Below are our favorite pieces from the fundraiser.

Special Occasions Event Planning enlisted us for decor for this super chic graduation party at The Bookbindery. We used the Los Angeles collection for the lounge furniture. The space was softened up with chandeliers and oversized mirrors. A draped cabana was set up for a VIP section.

The Montage in Beverly Hills was transformed for this Hollywood Regency Style 60th  birthday party with the design direction of Marianne Weiman Nelson from Special Occasions Event Planning as well as Eric Buterbaugh, Images by Lighting, Classic Party Rentals and No Static Pro AV.

From Marianne of Special Occasions Event Planning…

“Inspired by the dramatic styling of the Hollywood Regency Period, I worked closely with the talented Ashley Coleman and Edgar Zamora of Revelry Event Designers to create a high contrast vision using sharp yellow and glossy black. French windows draped with taupe and canary yellow fabric accented the ballroom. Large mirrors with hand-painted dramatic lines in glossy white, black and sharp yellow created the authentic transformation into the Regency period.”
