CGGVeritas Holiday Ball 2010
CGGVeritas Holiday Ball celebrated the season with three different themes within one amazing space. Trevisio’s amphitheater shaped restaurant is a beautiful canvas full of unlimited possibilities. With is natural layout, the opportunity to create multiple design elements within the space was immediately embraced. Working with a talented culinary crew, I also had the confidence to push the envelope and create unexpected food displays within each space for the guests to enjoy.
The main area with its breathtaking cobalt blue ceiling pendants was a beautiful backdrop for the modern platinum and crystal design influence. With beautiful lounge furniture, an acrylic pipette wall for the shrimp display, and holiday songs from the Salvation Army Harbor Lights choir, the guests were welcomed as they sipped on a Prosecco holiday cocktail. The party quickly picked up with the talent of Fried Ice Cream.
To the left of the main area we celebrated a white holiday with custom polar bear fur linen, wintery tree lighting graphics, and a brandy milk punch. The dessert display, which sat on a series of glass columns and shelves, was highlighted by a fantastic white peacock. Guests will be able to relive the memory through their snow globe picture keepsakes.
To the right of the main area, with colors of moss, red, and gold, the guests celebrated Christmas Past. Gold ornate candelabras sat on moss taffeta holly linen, and were accented by traditional lanterns. An iron gate, highlighted with a red peacock, presented a unique imported cheese display, which was complimented by a cognac bar and wassail.
It was a holiday ball that was enjoyed and will be remembered for years to come.Event Planner: Kat Creech Events

Under her supervision, our restaurant was transformed in grand proportions I have never seen before. She is an organized, creative person, detail oriented and full of positive energy. In addition to her tremendous creativity, she is also able to build on the ideas of others, a huge plus in this industry. I was also hugely impressed by her passion and knowledge of practical ways to execute an event while considering sustainability of the environment. If you are hosting an event, be it big or small, I could not recommend any planner more whole-heartedly. Her professionalism is unparalleled. She will make your event so much more than you could ever expect.”
