Corporate Event Planning & Décor for a Warehouse Launch Party

July 24th, 2015

When Belimo Americas moved into their new energy efficient headquarters in Danbury, Connecticut they wanted to throw a grand opening corporate party for their employees. What better space to celebrate than their new warehouse – and what better team to transform the space than X-Quisite Flowers & Events! We provided event décor, lighting, sound, staging – and the DJ. The fun didn’t stop there: the X-Quisite Team came back for a second client party in the manufacturing facility for a formal gala.

The opportunity to fill up such a large, unique space became more exciting when the client gave our team free reign over the design process. They only asked us to keep the theme colors from the Belimo logo: orange, gray and black. Taking into consideration the modern aesthetic of the venue, as well as the very high ceilings, we went to work. The mission? To transform the space into a VIP lounge and make the employees forget they came here every day for work.

Grand Opening Warehouse Party

Belimo’s new manufacturing space clocks in at around 120,000 square feet, but we decided to start at the top. Giant white weather balloons were set afloat for a playful feel in the industrial space. Not only did the balloons make a great canvas for our lighting design, but they also lowered the ceiling for a more intimate feel.

We created a custom Belimo carpet runner, flanked by orange velvet ropes that led to the stage and screen. Highboy tables were covered with orange spandex linen to enhance the company colors against the pristine concrete floors. Clear Lucite stools kept the cocktail area modern, as well as the addition of fresh wheatgrass centerpieces with orange gerbera daisies.

Diane couldn’t resist creating a whimsical piece of floral art to adorn the Belimo machinery, so the team put together a small surprise gift! Using orange calla lilies, we wove together a panel of flowers for a windowpane effect, a fun addition to the industrial backdrop.

Designing two parties at the warehouse within a month of each other gave us the opportunity to create and design new custom furniture and props.

A custom stage was built featuring a black Lucite top framed with orange acrylic sides. A Lucite podium was the perfect detail to tie the look together, flanked by Belimo flags. The custom LED screen provided crisp images of the logo and a storyline montage showcasing the building of the new facility.

Custom Industrial Bar

A custom-built diamond plate bar, finished with a black acrylic work surface, greeted the guests at the client dinner party. A soft orange glow illuminated from inside the bar, bringing the theme colors to life.

The reflective top of the bar was perfect when the lights went down, mirroring the walls of products stored in the warehouse next to the oversized blooming white cherry blossoms.

Belimo Warehouse Bash – The Details

Orange tulips, gerbera daisies, green viburnum, and white hydrangea were bursting out of the classic white vases that held the floral centerpieces. Table numbers were placed in modern silver frames, while our versatile “Monet” candle stands were filled with clear, orange and silver gem crystals.

Whether under the full factory floor lights, or the pin spotted high-lights, the bright centerpieces matched the table décor perfectly.

We had an amazing time working at Belimo and can’t wait for their next big event! Their team was gracious and accommodating during the entire process. Designer Diane proclaimed, “It was so much fun driving into the warehouse with our trucks and unloading on location. I would work here any day!”

It was wonderful to see the factory lights dim and our party lights come to life! As the employees and guests entered the transformed warehouse party space, their smiling faces lit up with excitement, laughter and joy as they embraced the festive atmosphere and ambiance.

Our task of transforming a Connecticut warehouse into a space that had the same atmosphere as a NYC nightclub was a success according to the employees who continued to tell the X-Quisite Team how amazing the room looked!

Providing audio visual support and a DJ – as well as lighting, furniture, flowers and decor – meant we got to stay for the party and get caught up in the excitement from the employees as they entered their newly transformed venue! It was a pleasure working with the Belimo Americas team and we can’t wait to go back for their next corporate party!
