Last week we had the opportunity to transform a classic Charleston space into an elegant served dinner. The First Annual Inaugural Charleston Library Society Gala Dinner allowed us to get creative with the menu and play on the beautiful historic architecture with our decor. Dramatic silver candelabras from Event Drs. lined the tables with wreaths of fresh oranges and the glow of candles. Attendees said it was “the best event they had been to in Charleston” and said they had never had food like this before in the city- calling it “haute cuisine”. We had a blast getting creative with the menu and send a big shout out to our clients at the Library Society and amazing chefs Matt and Britney for coming up with this delectable menu.
