Strolling Entertainment, Aerial Performances and Floral Ballerinas at The Beverly Hills Summer Garden Party
This year’s Beverly Hills Summer Garden Party featured curated strolling entertainment, floral ballerinas and roaming characters by Artists Creating Entertainment. The custom-made costumes included hand sown flower embellishments, enchanted garden-inspired headwear, and dazzling accents to captivate the audience during the aerial performances. This is one of our favorite summertime events.
From enchanted midsummer’s night garden celebrations to lush outdoor venues, our bespoke event services can be enhanced with live musical entertainment, acrobatic performances, choreographed dancers and themed production. Looking for more outdoor entertainment ideas? Check out the video from our recent Clique Mixer where the alfresco gathering of meeting and events professionals was enhanced by ambient live jazz performance by our saxophonist J, accompanied by styled dancers.
So where do we draw our inspiration for enchanted garden and garden party themes and characters? Often times, our clients already have a something specific mind, a color theme, or perhaps the vision for the garden-themed décor, and our talented team gets to work on ideas for how ACE can accentuate and further bring this vision to life. Other times, we get inspired by fashion trends, films or specific materials we’ve been excited to work with.
For Beverly Hills’ Summer Garden Party, our costuming team channeled the location, the beautiful Beverly Canon Gardens featuring lush green landscaping dotted with neo-classic fountains and The Montage Hotel. The garden setting eluded Roman-esque vibes while The Montage Hotel’s earthy tones and terracotta roof brought to mind this summer’s runways trends as exemplified by Valentino and Versace. And so, our Italian garden dream began to take shape. Dusty rose and burnt red tones; textured lace; and embellished flowers blooming in the fields between Parma and Palermo.
Of course, our floral ballerinas are more than just interactive backdrops. As strolling characters, they add a dash of whimsy and entertainment – a showpiece that facilitates conversations and interaction among guest. They are also talented acrobats, dancers, and aerialists (to learn more about our entertainer’s specialties, visit our services page). As such, all of our custom made costumes and garments must also allow our artists to do what they do best – perform and entertain. For our garden-themed characters, this meant a functional airbrushed bodysuit which allowed them ease of movement and flexibility during their aerial performance.
The costumes would not have come to life without our talented collaborators sharing our creative vision. One of the best in the industry, each of the intricate details was hand sown by seamstress and costume designer extraordinaire with years of experience in film production and design. The glistening leaves and fronds on our ballerinas were done by another brilliant ACE partner and long-time collaborator – a visual artist with an unparalleled eye for detail and mastery when it comes to airbrushing and body painting.
None of this would have been possible without the Beverly Hills Chamber – organizers of the beautiful evening, a celebration of Beverly Hills Chamber businesses, the city and the Chamber’s Board of Members. A signature event, the Summer Garden Party brings together some of the most intrepid leaders, business owners and visionaries from the Beverly Hills community. One such visionary is former Beverly Hills Mayor Lilli Bosse, pictured here with our floral ballerinas.
