Basin Street Station, New Orleans

The Venue, Basin Street Station is an antique train station, now a tourist stop on the first floor and a large banquet facility upstairs on the forth floor.

A view of the entrance level floor.

This is the 4th floor where our event took place.  Donna Madden/Decorating for the Senses did all of the decor for the celebration of Kenny's 50th birthday celebration with nearly 100 guests.
This shot is a generic from Basin Street Station.  I am hoping the professional photographer got a
good complete view shot of our work.

Our color scheme was black, white and gray.



A collection of antique cameras, crespedia (billy button) flowers for a pop of color shaped the theme for our decor selections.


The entire party was done long distance via internet, and many emails.  We acquired  a floor plan and worked with the venue's event planner to fine tune all details. 

We customized throw pillows to be used on the outdoors patio area with special ordered fabric to scale to make our theme carry to the outdoors.


A settee was rented at a local New Orleans rental for our main focal point.







This shot was taken by the photographer.





This is a feature wall over the serving area...part of the venue's staple decor.  Love!


A great view of the city from the balcony.


Photos of Kenny "through the years" were featured on each table decor.



Thank you Kenny and Missy for allowing me to share photos of your event.  Kenny is my "little" brother.
Happy Birthday, Kenny!  Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your special day!

Eclectic

This was the home I entitled "Eclectic" because we used a mix of components.  Here is a little peak of one the venues we styled. ...
