Celebration on the River

Celebration on the River

This beautiful event was done at The Veterans Memorial Building in Downtown Cedar Rapids, we were lucky enough to be the first company to decorate an event here in 40 years. And what a little gem hiding up on the third floor, overlooking the 1st Avenue bridge & Cedar River lies this gorgeous upstairs ballroom. Sadly, used as storage until after the flood hit, everything was renovated and now this space is once again available for events! Yay! Along with the third floor ballroom the building is also home to the beautiful main floor coliseum and the basement armory, all three areas are available for events!

The art deco ambiance in the room provided a stunning canvas for this event. Tall ceilings, beautiful light fixtures and oh, can we talk about that floor… Sheer fabrics were added to the windows to bring in a more intimate feel as red up-lighting also accented the windows as dusk fell. The guest tables were topped with a classic ivory on ivory striped linen surrounded by our ghost chiavari chairs. Conversation areas were added in using our chocolate leather lounge furniture and bronze nesting tables. Small cocktail lamps adorned accent tables around the room and provided a warm cozy glow. Live plants in all shapes and sizes were also brought in for corners and centerpieces on larger guest tables. This is one party we would have loved to attend!

We cannot wait to keep you updated throughout the year with more events from this amazing venue!
