HMR Designs’ décor made the Illinois Club for Catholic Women’s 2015 Presentation Ball extra special.

HMR Designs’ event designer Jessica Griffin planned the floral and décor for the 57th annual Presentation Ball for the Illinois Club for Catholic Women (ICCW). Hosted at the Hilton Chicago, the 2015 ball welcomed over 700 attendees and featured wintery white accents and green florals, trees and mixed metals, mirrored elements and sparkling crystal – all of which added to the regal elegance of the evening.

“It was a pleasure working with the committee to put together a beautiful event for what is such an important day in so many young ladies’ lives,” said Griffin.

The ICCW is a not-for-profit organization that provides service to poor and underprivileged communities in the Chicago Metropolitan area. The annual Presentation Ball, which serves to present young debutantes to society and a life of service work, is the primary fundraiser for the ICCW to accomplish their mission.

The ICCW was founded in 1921 by Julia Deal Lewis. At this time women were entering Chicago’s industrial workforce but many were from rural areas and unaccustomed to city life. Women were facing terrible conditions such as unpaid overtime, poor wages and dangerous worksites. ICCW helped these women with affordable food, places to stay, protection and mentorship. Now, over 90 years later, the ICCW continues to protect the dignity of the city’s most marginalized women and the Club has become a leading charity in Chicago.

It was the pleasure of HMR Designs to be a part of the ICCW’s amazing history by bringing extra beauty and elegance to an already beautiful event.
