An elegant Black and Gold Gala Dinner for Morris Corp

It was a decadent black and gold affair for this year’s annual gala dinner for Morris Corp. The mining and construction asset management service provider hosted the annual leadership conference and gala dinner at QT Hotel on the Gold Coast and engaged Encore Event Technologies (previously Staging Connections) to bring the event vision to life through set design and styling for 165 guests.

Keeping in line with the black and gold theme, the stage set was custom designed using an array of hexagonal shaped panels arranged in a honeycomb configuration and rigged from the ceiling. A combination of rigged Mac lights and uplighting by fusion bars installed below the stage set stage panels really made the hexagonal panels pop and made a superb backdrop for the gala dinner formalities.

The table styling and centrepieces were a brilliant showcase of the local Encore team’s ability to create a beautiful table look in line with a specific theme. 

The tables were cloaked in a black table cloth, and upon this lived elegant centrepieces created using gold and silver hexagonal mirrors, underneath geometrical hurricanes in a mixture of silver, gold and copper. These wire hurricanes were then filled with tiny copper bud lights which cast beautiful reflections off the mirrored bases. The black and gold theme was continued through gold charger plates , black table napkins and gold chair sashes.
