A Marshawn Lynch Gala at The Edgewater Hotel Seattle

Last December we had the honor and total pleasure of being part of the “Fam 1st Family” Foundation Gala. It’s co-founder and president Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch hosted this sports-star-studded event at The Edgewater Hotel last December. Team owner Paul Allen was in attendance, along with head coach Pete Carroll, football legend Joe Montana and former Sonics player Shawn Kemp. ESPN anchor Kenny Mayne acted as host, raising more than $325,000 for the organization, which uses athletics and education to empower at-risk youth across the nation. That is #beastmode at it’s finest!!

We designed all aspects of this event – linens, chairs, and centerpieces. The client wanted a warm, natural look that didn’t translate Christmas or Holiday since the event took place in the middle of December. So we ended up using lots of greens, succulents, natural foraged items, ferns, glassy baby candles … they were so pleased with the outcome!

It was a pleasure collaborating with Kelly O’Brien Events, California and working alongside Mat Hayward who was the lucky photographer onsite and who took these awesome photos of the evening. Thank you, Mat!!!
