We return to the beautiful Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort & Casino for a series of Sales Recognition Events, bringing unique ideas designed to specifically fit the planned environments.


Welcome Dinner

Set out on the garden deck, tonight’s dinner is for 130 of our client’s top worldwide sales leaders. As guests step outside just minutes before sunset, they are greeted by six tiki torch bearers, a VIP welcome to tonight’s festivities. A cocktail lounge is set with highboys draped in white spandex, and topped with small lantern decorative pieces. Splashes of orange and purple, tonight’s Aruban evening color scheme, are hinted at in the form of highboy table sashes.

As guests move from the cocktail area, they find the wooden deck tucked neatly into tropical gardens, just steps from the Caribbean sea. A mix of dinner rounds and rectangular tables, set with designer wooden chairs, provide a lively flow to the deck.

All tables are center-striped with purple or orange rosette runners, and the rounds feature a natural burlap linen. Alternating purple and orange napkins are gently twine tied, adding another detail.

Centerpieces are created using natural driftwood and rattan charger plate foundations, and feature a variety of tropical flora. Votives and natural seashells complete each piece.

Additional votives line the rear of the deck along the tree line to define the space with soft illumination.

A lounge area featuring beautiful wicker chairs, a loveseat, and table, is set amidst glowing planters and provides a perfect area for relaxing while listening to the steel drum player gently welcome you to paradise.

Breakfast Meeting

The next morning, our guests are served breakfast in the ballroom. The doors are flanked with giant, inflated tusks which illuminate green, our signature color for our new day’s event.

When entering the ballroom, guests find their seats at any of the mirrored rectangular, or green tafeta adorned round tables. White chiavari chairs with soft padding, provide a touch of comfortable elegance.

Each setting is indicated with a beautiful rattan charger plate draped with a forest green napkin. Centerpieces comprise various glass vases filled with water, fruits and tropical flora. A lovely way to begin your day in paradise.

Awards Dinner

Our awards dinner also takes place in the ballroom, but we completely transformed it into a bedazzling space fit for VIP winners. Walls were draped from ceiling to floor in white satin, and then cool blue uplighting was cast to provide a glow of the entire space. Round tables were dressed in white pintuck linens, and custom-made round mirrors were placed on top. The tables were encircled with clear “ghost” chairs, and were underlit to provide an additional soft glow throughout the room.

Settings were marked with aqua blue charger plates holding aqua blue satin napkins tied gently with diamond mesh. Centerpieces included towering silver willow, draped in orchids and crystals, silver candlesticks, and our floating hoop with cala lilies.

An additional touch was added to the ceiling of the ballroom, as we hung crystal draping and chandeliers from the exposed wooden beams – an awesome detail that received many favorable comments from guests.

Farewell Dinner – Carnivale

For our Farewell Dinner, we move out to the lower pool deck, where we find a cocktail area with black spandex covered highboys, and tropical flora flowing from unique hourglass vases. Moving through the space you take note of the colorful pink, blue and green palm tree wrappings, while others are draped in twinkling lights.

The main dining area is poolside and contains black spandex covered rounds topped with festive colored sequined overlays. Centerpieces are celebrations, containing masks, feathered boas, strings of beads, and tropical flora. Yellow, orange, pink, green, and purple napkins dot the space, which is colorfully uplit along the perimeter.

Soft votives line the pool edge, and define the stage for the amazing band that provides tonight’s entertainment.
