A Pan Am flight to Havana

by Natalie Eshkenasy


Last week we had the opportunity to work on a 1950's Havana night themed event. The event took place at the 1111 Lincoln Road garage penthouse and it started with guests arriving at the Pan Am flight boarding counter which was located on the 7th floor of the garage. At the counter, stewardess handed over custom made boarding passes for a Mia-Havana flight while airport sounds came out from the speakers. These passes, designed by our creative director Natalie Eshkenasy, actually granted access to the party at the penthouse. Up in the penthouse it was all about classic Jazz music, casino tables, and of course the Havana decor. We used our vintage sofas along with mid century style furniture to create a bit of mismatch. Beautiful mismatches were a constant in every inspirational photo we've seen from Havana so we tried to recreate the feel in this beautiful space.

 The classic wood molding bar was placed along the wooden penthouse wall and was paired with the Metal back bar shelving.

Event furniture for rent can be tricky sometimes and limiting when trying to create a theme but we're glad we had the right pieces for this event. We always try to make pieces that fit with the city we live in, Miami. In this case, the colorful patterns on the ottomans and pillows really fit the location as well as the event theme.
