We produced a glamorous gala for a local nonprofit Five Acres… “Soiree Under the Stars”, which was based around an early 1900s theme, brought the historical Pasadena Gamble House to life. The early 1900s theme gala paired so perfectly with the rich history and architectural setting. The Gamble House, featured as the home of Dr. Emmett Brownin from Back to the Future, is not your typical venue space. It is a museum by day with tours for guests to learn about the Gamble House, an architectural landmark within Pasadena with so much rich history. After convincing The Gamble House to let them use the venue as the gala venue, Innovate Marketing Group was the first ever to host an event on the property and was able to turn this raw space into a true soiree under the stars.
Inspired by the design of the Gamble House and its allure, Innovate Marketing Group came up with a design to feed off that charm. Bistro lights were strung over blushes, gray and gold décor which added elegance to the already beautiful, natural outdoor setting. Wells Fargo, the Presenting Sponsor, had their logo projected on the roof of the adjourning bookstore (which was previously the garage when the house was fully functioning). It created a beautiful setting beyond the bistro lights as the evening approached.
Our team ensured every detail, no matter how small, enhanced the theme. From the live band, “cigar girls,” décor on the beautiful wine wall, the vintage car as the grand entrance statement piece, the compilation dance performance of early 1900s dance moves, down to the table set up of gold flatware, the event truly encompassed a 1900s soiree under the stars. The beautiful gala was featured in Pasadena Now and the Beverly Hills Courier as a “beautiful evening” with a “fabulous silent auction” and an “unforgettable evening…” Guests were left with a new outlook on the historic Gamble House and appreciation for Five Acres and all they do for the community. With such endless possibilities when dealing with a raw space, Innovate Marketing Group transformed the Gamble House into a perfect rendition of the early 1900s as if the Gamble House itself threw their own party during that time.
