This past weekend Zaytuna hosted a Minara titled; Agenda to Change our Families at Northwestern University as well as an award ceremony and fund raiser at Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry.
I had absolutely no idea that Chicago was such a pretty city, the city feels like a blend of Portland, Oregon and London. Place can really set the tone for events and the museum was a very special setting for Zaytuna's evening event.
With the decor I was hoping to create a simple but elegant look. Earthy colors were chosen for the table linens in a lamor fabric. On the stage backdrop a fresh green garland of Ruscus and Salal leaves were draped. The stage flowers were all orchids and the dining table centerpieces were simple shaped modern white vases and with leaves instead of flowers; Monstera and Lily Grass. We were able to also benefit from the museum's current glass exhibit which includes nine glass chandeliers which were conveniently hanging above the stage.
