Introducing "Greenery" - Pantone Color of the Year

Introducing "Greenery", Pantone, the self-professed "Color Institute", declares at the 2017 "Color of the Year". So, what exactly is a "Color of the Year"? Since 2000, Pantone has chosen a specific color and hue (in this case "Pantone 15-0343") as a "symbolic color selection" or rather a "snapshot of what we see taking place in our global culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude".
After last year's 2016 colors of the year, "Rose Quartz" and "Serenity", "Greenery" comes as a fresh and revitalizing tone for the year - symbolizing an energetic new beginning. Perhaps the most obvious evocation for the color is nature itself - "greenery" omnipresent throughout the natural world - luscious foliage, deep pastures of grass, and wild forestry. Color experts at Pantone reflect, "Greenery is nature's neutral".

Mid-Century Modern Lounge

As the saying goes, “home is wherever I lay my hat” – and in the case of the modern businessman’s case, that would be the countless hotel rooms frequented for conferences and networking events. The uniform and neutral landscape that often comprises hotel interiors may not leave a notable impression on guests. When orchestrating a corporate conference with executives coming from all reaches from the globe, a profound impression is the desired effect to leave on event attendees.

The team at Elite Productions International was called upon for the task of creating a welcoming, yet stimulating atmosphere in the foyer of a hotel ballroom. The space was available for corporate businessmen - who would be spending a majority of their time between conference events networking, conducting business, and even using it for leisure.

Through use of furniture, décor, lighting, and floral elements, Elite Productions International successfully transformed the foyer. Using “Mid-Century Modern” as an inspi…

A Modern Take on Thanksgiving Decor

November 2016

Everybody knows the traditional Thanksgiving look: abundant cornucopias, plenty of autumn leaves, pinecones, burlap fabric, twine...While these are the staples of harvest decor, what about something more modern for your holiday tablescape? Instead of going back year after year to these more common design tropes, the team at Elite Productions International wanted to present a variety of looks that offer a more vibrant and fresh aesthetic.  

Often a traditional Thanksgiving color palette can be trapped in warm hues such as orange, red, and yellow - try switching it up with neutrals such as white and brown. Instead of your typical orange pumpkins, try heirloom pumpkins, gourds and squash in unusual colors such as white, green, and yellow. Natural finishes such as a reclaimed wood table or galvanized metal are ideal canvases for embellishment.

Dried florals and foliage are perfect for filling in empty space on your tablescape - and better yet don't need the same maintenance…

Elite Productions International Rocks Recycled Decor !

July 2016
The first article details various "recycled" decor elements utilized to achieve a "Dive Bar Chic" environment for a client's corporate event. Recycled cans, bottles, and lightbulbs were fashioned into unique centerpieces in combination with selected florals.
In another feature from Connect Corporate, EPI was one of six events showing why "a career in meeting planning rocks". Well, this even in particular really did "rock" with a live performance by rock legends, Foreigner. 
Guests played games of pool, ate bites from food trucks, and took photos in front of the dive bar "brick wall" all under a massive erected clear tent.
