An Elegant Old Hollywood Party at the Great Hall

The Great Hall at Union Station is a magical location for a large event, whether it be a wedding or a corporate holiday party. This iconic venue in Seattle’s Pioneer Square is an 11,000 square foot classic ballroom. With antique and historic benches, black and white mosaic tile, and barrel vaulted ceilings – it is the perfect location for a classic glamorous event.

This past holiday season, Jewel Hospitality produced an Old Hollywood themed party for over 600 guests. This spectacular event was the definition of glamorous. We brought in historic black and white movies, gold sparkle and jeweled table linens, antique typewriters, beautiful floral centerpieces with tall white feathers, a photo booth, elegant candles and more. Guests were entertained by our fabulous Jewel DJ, dancers, and The Rat Pack featuring Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. and even a Marilyn Monroe! Our cigarette girl passed out cigars, and the paparazzi captured photos of this dazzling event.

Take a look at some of the gorgeous details below, and contact Jewel Hospitality for more information on creating a stunning holiday party for 2015!  

Details

Details, details, details are what make all of the difference at an elegant party. The Golden Era of Hollywood called for a red carpet, a room filled with old typewriters, antique cameras, gold sparkles, feathers, and of course, the Rolls-Royce parked outside. Many guests dressed the part, making the whole evening feel like we had been transported back to that golden age of Hollywood charm and glamour.

Entertainment

Good entertainment is important for any big party. This event didn't settle on just one form of entertainment. There were black and white movies projected on the wall, West Coast Swing and Lindy Hop dancers, singers, a DJ, caricature artists, and even more to entertain our guests throughout the evening. Never a dull moment!
