A Classic Charleston Party

Thanksgiving week at Duvall means something a bit different than everyone else. While everyone is prepping their turkey and writing their extensive holiday shopping lists, we’re preparing for a weekend of beautiful balls at Hibernian Hall.

From the food to the floral and everything in between these private balls do not miss a detail. Peek at some of the photos below from this weekend’s events. We’re loving the lusciously feminine purple and white palate.

Each year Duvall is involved in a grand production debutante ball. This event truly gives our coordinators the opportunity to help design an event from start to finish. Below are a few photos from the night, enjoy!


A Night For Our Future

Charleston Green Catering

Duvall’s Green Team had a great time sponsoring the A Night For Our Future Party with The Sustainability Institute (read more about the event here)! Thanks to Cockatil Club, Social, Cathead Vodka and Allagash Beer for making it a delicious evening!

Charlston Green Catering


“Duvall Catering drew inspiration from the venue and offered up a popcorn bar at the theater’s concessions stand. Truffle & Herb, Rocky Road, and Hot Buffalo Bleu Cheese were favorites among the crowd, but the Cheddar & Bacon offering was a favorite.”


A Night at the Oscars

Whether you watch to find out which film wins Best Picture or enjoy seeing the fashion, the Oscars always garner attention. To celebrate the creative spirit in film, each year the Charleston Ballet Theatre honors past winners with a performance series called the Golden Oscar. On the eve of opening night, an Oscar Gala was held in celebration at the American Theatre.

Duvall Co-Lead Designers, Rachel Briggs and Megan Click participated by creating a tablescape for the Oscar Gala event. See pictures of their Best Picture winner-inspired table below.

The centerpiece was designed to represent the movie “The Last Emperor.” Two pomader balls were created out of carnations placed atop two vintage candle holders.  They were accented with bamboo sticks and framed pictures from the movie.  Each seat had a custom charger, chopsticks and Chinese food to-go containers filled with themed party favors to include: Chinese yo-yo, Chinese handcuffs and much more!


Spoleto Party honoring Charles Wadsworth


Duvall Catering teamed up with Spoleto Festival USA to cater the Farewell High Tea honoring the retiring artistic director of the Chamber Music USA Series, Charles Wadsworth. It was a Charleston twist on a traditional high tea featuring Pimm’s Cup Cocktails and a homegrown iced tea bar courtesy of the Charleston Tea Plantation . The fantastic photpgraphs were captured by Jennifer Bearden of  Jennifer Bearden Photography.

Duvall gears up for the MUSC Charity Ball

We are very excited to be sponsoring the 22nd annual MUSC Charity Ball for 2009!  On Saturday, April 11th, 700 guests dressed in black tie will enter a transformed Omar Shrine Convention Center ready to enjoy an evening of dancing, eating and drinking from a fabulous menu put together by Chef Charlie Giordano; and most importantly bidding on silent auction items and spending money to support worthy charities.

We are working with the Charity Ball Committee, made up of the Medical Student Alumni Association and College of Medicine Student Council to finalize the details.  Stay tuned for updates.
