Paradise Cove

This event took place in beautiful downtown San Diego. Our client requested something spectacular for 250 guests at an evening dinner event. The challenge… it was to be off-site but within walking distance of the Hyatt, their host hotel.
Avalon’s staff flew to San Diego to scout the area and found a nearby restaurant at a neighboring hotel, the San Diego Marriott & Marina. There was enough space to accomodate the group and a magnificent 180 degree panoramic view of San Diego harbor
We set about designing “Paradise Cove” with a unique combination of food & beverage, decor, and entertainment, transforming the site into a tropical paradise filled with colorful table linens, tropical centerpieces, beautiful flowers, palm trees and even some live exotic birds.

The Caribbean sounds of the “Island Fever” band greeted guests after a delightful stroll on the boardwalk from the Hyatt to the Marriott. The music merged with the rhythms of the blenders mixing Margaritas served by beautiful hostesses in Caribbean attire. A strolling magician disguised as a pirate entertained guests throughout cocktails and dinner.After dinner, the lights dimmed and guests were asked to look out the windows as a spectacular aerial fireworks display launched from a barge out on the harbor. The sponsors of the event were able to see their logos lit up in fireworks at ground level.

After the fireworks, guests created their own fantasy desert at a fountain where fresh chocolate freely flowed. Ingredients included, strawberries, pineapple, marshmallows, sliced apples, miniature cream puffs, and ice cream.

Needless to say, the party was a huge success and guests were thoroughly wined, dined, and entertained. Our client said the event “exceeded expectations”.
