With vintage safari animals; lions, tigers, bears (oh my!) giraffes and monkeys found throughout the space you will love all of the wild kingdom details!

“Think jungle animals and elegant decor don’t go hand in hand? Think again! This rustic safari animal baby shower is not only adorable but also super elegant. It goes to show that you can have your three tier animal print cake and eat it too… But really, these parents to-be were showered with a soiree full of fun & games (hello boggle and beer pong), a stunning setup of rustic tables lined with vibrant florals, yummy food and drinks, and people they loved. What more could you want?” via Inspired By This

Held on the grounds of a private estate in Los Angeles, we filled the backyard with rustic farm tables adorned with burlap table runners and unique vases filled with florals in shades of green, apricot, persimmon, pale yellow and cream. Also placed along the runner were adorable vintage safari animals; lions, tigers, bears (oh my!) giraffes and monkeys! These cute mementos could be found throughout the party. The place settings consisted of wood chargers with textured white china, green vintage glassware, wood handled flatware and taupe linen napkins wrapped with horn napkin rings.

The Kitchen For Exploring Foods served delicious tray passed hors d’ oeuvres and a tempting spread straight from the grill. Guests also enjoyed specialty cocktails “Baby Girl Binder”, “Mama-to-be Mojito” and “Father-to-be-Fizz” from our rustic bar covered in natural greenery, and more of the adorable vintage animals. Our cozy lounge furniture served as a perfect area for guests to relax as the evening evolved and fun games such as beer pong, cornhole, boggle, yardzee, jenga and pick up sticks were enjoyed throughout the event!

The stunning images were captured by Amy & Stuart who also photographed the couple’s wedding! A true full circle moment.

Luxe Rehearsal Dinner Featured on Strictly Weddings

The night before our stunning couple said “I do” we designed and produced a luxe rehearsal dinner at the Waterfall Garden at the Four Seasons Westlake. We could not be more excited to share their rehearsal dinner is now featured on Strictly Weddings!

“It’s fair to say that when Alyson Fox of Levine Fox Events teams up with the fabulous Mark’s Garden, the result is going to be beyond fabulous! Cue the summer nights and the perfect excuse for a festive soiree, whether you’re celebrating a wedding or not. This result just so happened to be a rehearsal dinner guaranteed to wow guests. It’s chic, simple elegance and oh-so-gorgeous as Callaway Gable clearly captured the beauty that unfolded under the California skies at Westlake Four Seasons. We love the idea of bringing a unique twist to summer rehearsal dinners infusing them with details, activities and conversation, in lieu of a more formal ballroom rehearsal dinner. Feast your eyes on this lush garden party that is a blend of a formal sit-down mixed with a relaxing ambience.

We adore how this stylish couple went with glam but combined it with a garden edge where clearly guests enjoyed themselves. The warmth of the night and camaraderie shines through frame by frame. Take this as a blueprint for a rehearsal dinner guaranteed to wow guests from the very beginning of the wedding weekend. What a way to kick off an I DO! Can you imagine the actual wedding day!?” – via Strictly Weddings

Extravagant Palm Beach Birthday Party

In beautiful Palm Beach, Florida we planned and designed an incredible weekend birthday extravaganza that will spark your senses and dazzle your mind!

levine fox, levine fox events, alyson fox, alyson heather fox, the breakers, palm beach, florida party, destination planner, lehr and black, the breakers, ed libby, birthday party, milestone birthday

Upon arrival at The Breakers, an exquisite and historic resort, guests were greeted in the lobby with sparkling drinks and classic Lilly Pulitzer scarves in addition to their lavish welcome boxes waiting in their suites. Guests were then escorted to their rooms to relax before they were treated to a delicious welcome dinner at one of the resorts many restaurants.

The first morning, guests woke early for breakfast in the resort’s restaurant “The Circle”, a stunning setting featuring 30-foot frescoed ceilings. After they were escorted to a private beach for ocean activities and fun in the sun. Early afternoon came and it was time to relax. For this special afternoon treat we transformed the Mediterranean Ballroom into a luxurious and relaxing day spa. Complete with private massage therapy rooms, facial treatment beds and cozy seating for manicures and pedicures, guests were pampered like princesses.

After all the treatments were complete, a draped wall parted, to reveal an entirely different environment as guests entered into our Tea Room. The room was draped in soft white and highlighted with blush and sherbert toned lighting. Rose gobos added texture to the floor as the birthday girl’s monogram highlighted the walls. Crystal and iron chandeliers adorned with clusters of roses, hydrangea and orchids hung over a long rectangular dining table. The table was filled with an abundance of stylized florals incorporating all shades of spring blooms and fruits accents. Each place setting featured exquisite vintage-inspired china, a Battenburg lace monogrammed napkin and a custom-designed menu. A delicious spread of fresh fruit, pastries and fresh squeezed juices were available to guests as they continued to relax and enjoy this high tea experience.

That same evening, our guests dined at a well-known restaurant in the Palm Beach area. We designed the private room in an Asian inspired theme that related to the menu, with neutral tones and accents of lime green, gold, electric blue and touches of red. After dinner, guests were invited back to the “Gold Room” at The Breakers, where we created a surprise dance party with unique late night snacks as well as awesome tunes from DJ Splyce and excellent entertainment by Elan Artists.

The next day contained more action and excitement for our guests. We kicked the day off with an early morning scavenger hunt where we collaborated with select stores that were open only for our guests. Once a winner was named, the party moved to the polo fields where we broke the group up into teams for a friendly competition of fun obstacle courses!

The final evening encompassed a night of glamour and excitement! We began the evening outside on the lawn with hors-d’oeuvres and live fire dancers. Guests were then escorted by electronic violinists into the Venetian Ballroom which we divided into two parts. The first section was transformed into a chic yet sultry and bold red dining room. Complete with Venetian glass chandeliers, an abundance of red roses, and crystal adornments, each place setting was comprised of gold chargers, gold flatware, gold-rimmed glassware, monogrammed napkins and customized menus. The fabulous team at The Breakers served a nine-course dinner where each dish was more unique and delicious than the last. A jazz trio playing tunes from the 20’s and 30’s was the perfect accompaniment to the meal.

As dinner concluded, guests were escorted by dancers and acrobats into the grand finale event. This culmination took place in the other half of the Venetian Ballroom which was completely transformed into a mystical fusion of purple and blue. The entertainment took everyone’s breath away with two incredible shows from Zen Arts, including aerialists, burlesque dancers and more. A surprise performance from Grammy Nominated artist, NE-YO stole the night but guests continued to dance into the wee hours of the morning with tunes from our amazing DJ, Splyce!

This birthday weekend extravaganza came to a close with a charming brunch before the very last activity, a game of croquet. We sent the guests with packed to-go meals from The Breakers on their way safely to their destinations. An amazing time was had by all!

Ojai Valley Wedding Featured on Inside Weddings

This Ojai Valley wedding we planned and designed is one we will never forget! The intricate details and warm feelings of love were felt throughout the wedding.

“Melissa and Eric were married at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa, a spot that had been meaningful to the couple during their courtship. The resort’s relaxed and naturally beautiful setting was one that lent itself to the very personal wedding they had envisioned. “It was so important to us that the wedding really represent us,” says the bride. So, aided by event producers Diane Levine and Alyson Fox as well as their families and recently married friends, Melissa and Eric infused their summer soiree with touches that expressed the creativity and sense of humor they share as a couple.

The reception was an extension of the “warm, romantic, and fun” atmosphere that had been established by the ceremony’s dramatic decor and significant details. The lodge-like room was draped in rich burgundy fabric for a cozy feel. The tables were all covered in similar red silk linens and decorated with a variety of centerpieces that incorporated the same mix of roses, vines, and branches into low and tall arrangements. Flickering candles, plates of chocolates, and roses placed on each napkin rounded out the room’s elegant and abundant look.

Just before Melissa and Eric made their grand entrance to the ballroom, their guests were treated to a memorable surprise. Applying his professional skills as a television writer and film school graduate (Melissa is an entertainment attorney), Eric created a very special video to entertain the group. It not only included photos from both his and Melissa’s childhoods and their lives as a couple, but it also contained comical footage that Eric produced himself. One such section compared the unfortunate hairstyle histories of the bride and groom. “It is something that all of our guests still rave about to this day. It really set the mood. We secretly watched it from the back of the room,” says Melissa.” – via Inside Weddings

Backyard Wedding Celebration

After tying the knot in a romantic, intimate wedding in Eze, France, 5,000 miles away from home, our bride and groom wanted to celebrate with their closest friends and family comfortably in their backyard. It was our pleasure to make their vision a reality.

alyson fox, alyson levine fox, levine fox events, revelry event design, revelry event designers, marks garden, destination wedding, beverly hills wedding planner, los angeles wedding planner, los angeles wedding planner

In their spacious garden, we created an elegant celebration designed with plush lounge furniture with gold accents, rustic communal tables, and round dining tables draped in cream linen. With the help of Nancy Kaye of Mark’s Garden, The rustic, Tuscan look was perfected with aged votives and elements of birch, olive branch, herbs were treated with warm floral arrangements in shades of tangerine, persimmon, pink, blush, yellow and shades of green.

For dinner, guests were treated to a delectable meal by The Kitchen For Exploring Foods made of fresh, farm to table ingredients. As the night continued and the drinks were flowing, the “afterparty” moved indoors so the DJ could spin well into the wee hours of the morning. Our bride and groom were thrilled that their wedding dreams came true not only once, but twice.

Designing this wedding celebration at our client’s beautiful home was such a fun experience for us! Thank you to the entire creative team for helping bring this couple’s dream to life!
