There is a house in New Orleans – in this case it’s the JW Marriott, where we recently developed a Preservation Hall
themed awards dinner, dubbed for the client, “Hawker Hall”.

The ballroom was set with 16 round tables, 13 of which were covered in silver pintuck linens, while the other 3 were in
poker green spandex for gaming. Black napkins and chair covers added a cool elegance to the room, which also
featured a stage in front adorned with antique chairs and distressed windows.

As guests entered stage left, immediately across the room they could see the custom-built illuminated marquee sign,
letting them know they had entered “Hawker Hall”. Guests sat at tables featuring illuminated, music-themed centerpieces,
including: tall glass lamps with black shades containing floating drumsticks; a cymbal and drumstick combo; and
an illuminated tambourine.  The gaming tables had gaming themed centerpieces that incorporated playing cards and
poker chips in music boxes or an upside down cymbal.

Additional music-themed decor pieces were placed on buffet tables, including an antique record player, a washboard
cabinet with triangle, and a small wire guitar and drum/cymbal piece highlighted with peacock feathers.

After guests ate, a jazz trio took the stage providing entertainment for the jamboree. At the back of the room, some guests

played cards, while others stepped just outside, where a bar and lounge had been set up.

As music lovers, it was a lot of fun to help execute this event in one of our favorite cities. We hope to get back to New Orleans again soon.
