After a day of drinking and a night of dancing 'til the wee hours of the morning, what we all need most is a Recovery Brunch - which only requires that you roll out of bed and take a few steps to the table...LOL! That is exactly what the Millers offered their overnight guests at Millerfest 2017…. The Return. All of the Four Seasons Hotel Houston Pool Suites along with additional hotel rooms were reserved for guests to stay overnight. This allowed easy access to the Let’s Flamingle Recovery Brunch at The Pool Deck Café the following morning.
The tone for the Recovery Brunch spoke to Mrs. Miller's aesthetic and her love for pink and flash, but we didn't want it to be too feminine. The slogan for Mr. Miller's celebratory festivities was “Be a Flamingo in a Flock of Pigeons.” And we wanted all of the guests to be reminded of this the following day. I wanted to create a light, fresh, and casually chic atmosphere. Touches of gold and rose gold were used to punch it up a bit while keeping the design fun. The white iron, frosted glass tables with matching chairs were set by layering flamingo patterned small plates (from my personal collection) with the hotel's existing white plates and napkins. Matching flamingo mugs, glass pineapple tumblers, and rose gold flatware completed the design. The tables were dressed with palms, pineapple flower arrangements, gold painted pineapples, and flower crowns for the ladies to wear. A rose gold balloon garland hung from the pergola as a backdrop to the space and delectable buffet that included a mimosa and juice bar, mini shrimp and grits, mini chicken and waffles, a donut croquembouche, and so much more.
After the guests got their fill of food and beverage, they were able to lounge in and around the pool with rose gold flamingo floats flossing gold chains. Customized pool towels and outdoor games were available for guests while enjoying frosés and other beverages in the pineapple tumblers. It was so fun and inviting that it was less of a recovery and more of a remix.
