Rockin the (Random) House

Books and paper products comprised a large part of the decor, as did the baskets of items up for auction. - Photo: Keith Sirchio for BizBash

Books+ burgers+fries+ Jungle Juice = House Party! It was Manhattan's young literary crowd's night to celebrate the National Book Awards their own funky way. Check out BizBash's write up of NBA House Party 2010 below. Our team loved working inside Random House headquarters. For us, it was kind of like decorating our very own classroom for Back to School Night, JG style!

ICT, Fight On!

Last week Team JG rocked the West coast once again. This time we decked out the USC Institute for Creative Technologies' new Playa Vista home in school appropriate hues of cardinal and gold. Perfect timing for Fall!

ICT's newly designed building is pretty fly. Check it out:

In all honesty, we probably could have placed a couple of votives on the tables and called it a day. But if we had done that, then we would not have done this:

Or this:

We mixed and matched the place with an interesting variety of centerpieces. The first picture is one of our red and yellow James Story orchid centerpieces, while pictured above is a beautiful arrangement of camel roses with hypericon berries . (Side note, both of these would look fabulous on your Thanksgiving table this year).

We also incorporated black magic roses and yellow cymbidium orchids into the overall design.

Let's just say that we think we got the colors down. The marching band certainly thought so. After all, they match!

We especially enjoyed working this event because it gave us a chance to work with our buddies at foodink catering. Below are just two of the delish items that guests got to feast on.

Poached coconut shrimp skewers with cucumber and mint and a tomato sambal dipping sauce.

Cucumber boxes of sesame seared tuna with wasabi sauce.
