We were completely honored when past clients, Kathleen & Bob, called us to help plan an intimate event with Jane Goodall at their private home in Boulder. Kathleen wanted to create a setting where Jane and guests alike felt comfortable mingling and talking in the privacy of their backyard along Boulder Creek.
We worked with Brighter Day Floral design to create the stunning tablescapes, using minimal flowers. Brighter Day also added in ferns and plants around the yard to create a more inviting feel and to add to the already beautiful setting.
We also planned the table assignments so Jane had a seat at each table, rotating after each of the four course, in order to visit with all guests and share stories. Guests loved the one on one time with Jane and Jane told the hosts it was her favorite style of event because of the intimacy and laid back nature of the evening.
We worked with Big Red F to create a wonderful 4 course meal with wine pairings – both with an African twist – a nod to Jane’s incredible work in Gombe the better part of her life.
The highlight of the evening was shaking Jane’s hand and getting to meet a woman who is a true inspiration to me! We
