We’re in the Mood for Love

Love me Love me

Say that you love me with a wall that is filled with love and chocolate. This Godiva inspired lounge is adorned with Godiva chocolates in the wall along with bright red rose petals. Next to it is the famous gold box that you would know and love from Godiva. This decadent room is a perfect display for Valentine’s Day or any event centered on love. Who doesn’t love a good box of chocolates?

Decorate the entire venue with projection mapping or kinetic style lighting such as this one. The pink tones and swirls make this estate appear as if it’s bathed in roses. Pinks and reds throughout the grounds help amplify the overall grand effect.

For entertainment about an undying love, consider theming to Andrew Lloyd Weber’s Love Never Dies. This musical and visual masterpiece follow the Phantom of the Opera to New York’s Coney Island. Pick one of the Coney Island “freak show” elaborately produced carnival scenes paired with the stunning and haunting music to wow your guests.
