The whole city is talking about it; and if you haven’t been to see it yet the Chihuly Exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston should be high on your list of things to do (don’t worry, you have until August 7th). As you enter, you will notice that Dale Chihuly’s glass blown flowers may be stagnant but they are very much interactive! Throughout the entire exhibition, each eye-catching piece is conversing deliberately and playfully with the others, creating a fantastical and completely captivating composition.
With the colored glass being perhaps the most apparent aspect of the exhibition, what better way to design a dinner reception in the new Shapiro Family Courtyard, than to play on those colors? So we did just that. Using orange, turquoise and purple, the vibrancy of Chihuly’s work was echoed throughout the courtyard with rich linens and whimsical florals scattered on the cocktail lows and high top tables.
There’s still a month left for us to plan your very own Chihuly event!
