Saint Patrick’s Day was celebrated a little differently this year at The Design Center Atrium in South End!
Best Impressions Caterers partnered with many Charlotte area vendors to put together a classically southern themed event. Guests marveled at Carey Roberts’ floral masterpieces as they entered the Design Center Atrium on Thursday, March 17th. The Atrium was illuminated by abstract hanging Edison bulbs by Wink Lighting. Spark By Design’s custom made marquee letters commanded the room, which made for impactful branding design! Pieces exuding character and southern charm were placed throughout the venue by Old South Vintage Rentals to compliment the AFR Events furnishings. Party Reflections, VTG CLT, and Party Tables completed the classic southern look with one-of-a-kind vintage flatware, linens, and decor.
