In January, we designed the décor for the Mayor’s Ball following the second inauguration of Syracuse mayor Stephanie Miner. The ball was held in an exhibit area at Syracuse Hancock International Airport, the first time an event has been held there. The event was a lot of fun for our team, because the space was a blank canvas, so there were no restrictions on what we could design.
The winter weather Syracuse is well-known for was reflected in a theme decorated with cool blues and icy whites. Tables were dressed in white damask or pale blue linens and paired with white Chiavari chairs. Rather than use the venue’s lighting fixtures, we lit the space with our own blue ambient lighting, creating a cool and sophisticated atmosphere for the mayor and her guests to mingle in.
