After The Hunt

Flora and fauna are contrasted with a curated collection of nineteenth and twentieth century art for this After the Hunt feast at the Harvard Art Museums.

The surrounding architecture and early twentieth century art collection at the Harvard Art Museums inspired floral designer Marc Hall of Marc Hall Design and Nilda Martin of Reserve Modern Event Rentals to create a sumptuous after the hunt rehearsal dinner. “The evening was curated with appointments that blurred the distinction between modern and old world, Marc explained. “Modern furniture and couture design elements juxtaposed a Renaissance inspired display of food, flora and fauna.” Setting the tone for the night was an exceptional invitation suite designed by Tribe Design + Events. Custom made metallic marbled paper was encased in an envelope hand-sewn with metallic thread and sealed with vintage stamps describing what could be expected of the feast. Textures were prominent throughout the overall design from décor to fashion. Tables were covered with luxurious linens ranging from quilted silk in game prints to crushed velvet in rich reds from Table Toppers, while a fur stole and a feather bow tie accessorized the bride and groom. The grazing table was decorated with an elaborate display of food and floral sculptures. A mouth-watering roast was surrounded by colorful root vegetables and decadent cakes prepared by The Catered Affair. An artisan copper bar with an antler mirrored backdrop from Reserve Modern Event Rentals introduced metallic elements to the décor. Adjacent to the bar, an event lounge was comprised of lacquered knotted tree stumps that served as cocktail tables, a gilded crown chair, and contrasting animal hide rugs. A menagerie of curiosities such as skulls, horns, and feathers completed the design. “Our belief is that a great party starts by creating a thoughtful and beautifully styled environment that is not only visually stunning, but functional and exciting for guests. We accentuated an already gorgeous space by adding areas that became event jewelry and focal “wows” transforming the familiar environment,” explained Nilda Martin of Reserve Modern Event Rentals.
