A whimsical gala dedicated to exploring how the Peabody Essex Museum inspires innovation and creative expression in the community.
This year’s theme for the annual fundraising gala at the Peabody Essex Museum was motivated by imagination. Antique kaleidoscopes inspired the overall event design which can best be described as colorful, imaginative and whimsical. Fabrics lush with texture from Table Toppers of Newton dressed every surface. Integrating the whimsical theme, gilded crown chairs from Reserve Modern Event Rental were the focal point of the event lounge where guests sipped on cocktails and enjoyed interactive experiences provided by PEM. The Atrium of the Peabody Essex Museum was illuminated with imaginative lighting and projections throughout the night. “Our in-kind partners were key in bringing to life the vision of PEM and the Committee. In particular, Reserve Modern Event Rentals, Peterson Party Center, Table Toppers and I were able to work together to build the perfect atmosphere for our guests full of elegance and whimsy which is a difficult combination to achieve successfully,” said Lauren Fairweather, Director of Events at Peabody Essex Museum.
