Creativity is the act of turning new and imaginative ideas into reality. Creativity is characterized by the ability to perceive the world in new ways, to find hidden patterns, to make connections between seemingly unrelated phenomena, and to generate solutions.
At Prelude Events we consider that behind creativity lies passion and hard work. Each member of our team offers a unique creative input and flair to our events. So how do we collectively go about creating singular events?
Today we want to share a past event inspired by the Baroque style and set in Palau Casades aka BCN Lawyers’ Association. At the time, this modernist palace was a one of Barcelona’ hidden gems and was rarely used for external events.
After a few visits we explained our idea to the property, they were receptive but shocked at the same time. Our proposal, after all, was to empty the entire venue and transform it into a Baroque Palace. We promised everything would be put back in its place after the event and they trusted us.
For those who have worked with Nuria, our Creative Director, you might know that she sees events through a cinematographic lens. So much so that we often think she may have been a Film Director in a past life. So here we stood, with the goal of recreating an event setting inspired by the movie “Marie Antoinette”.
The first step was to compile reference visuals from movies, paintings, designs, architecture and historical events that best portrayed our creative objectives. With this in mind, our incredible artist @gocetatoo projected our vision by the way of hand drawn sketches that we could share with our client and importantly with those involved in creating the “real thing”.
Thanks to our trusted partners we were able to bring the event to life. Mireia Font from @LaFloreria scoured the city for baroque era furniture and décor pieces to perfectly create the ambience. @Sensacions channeled their culinary magic, setting out elegant and abundant buffets fit to meet the high standards of Marie Antoinette. Lastly, the final touches to set the scene were the period costumes that all staff and artists donned. Including the contemporary footwear twist of those pink converse that Sophia Coppola gave to her movie and so loved by Nuria.
We could talk endlessly about this incredible transformation, but what better way to live the event than through our making-of video, created by the talented film production company @Deliris.
