Anatomy Of A Ball

The Corcoran Ball is the largest annual fundraising event benefiting the Corcoran Gallery of Art. Being an annual event, as well as the premier event of the spring social season, every year demands new and unique design ideas. Everyone at Plants Alive! combines their respective talents to produce one of our most spectacular Special Events of the year. Here's our "Anatomy Of A Ball" slide show. We hope you come away with a few ideas for your own event.
