HMR Designs elevated the Harris Theatre’s music and dance gala by enchanting their guests with unique design elements.

HMR Designs was pleased to provide design elements that captivated the guests of Harris Theatre’s 2016 music and dance gala. The gala, themed “Imagine”, was part of a fundraising effort to support the theatre’s growth, mission and capital improvements.

"It’s always a pleasure to work with the great people at the Harris Theater,” said HMR Designs’ creative director, Bill Heffernan.

Guests were welcomed to their space on April 5, 2016, for a cocktail reception and performance of Dido and Aeneas by the Mark Morris Dance Group. In keeping with the theme, Heffernan provided innovative décor for the event, in particular the after party, which included giant rectangular clouds of cellophane clinging to the ceiling in an electric blue light. Created by hand in-house at HMR, the clouds illuminated the room, giving it a dreamy climate that was perfect for the close of the evening.

HMR Designs’ large production space and large floral studio enables the company to create one-of-a-kind themes for weddings and high profile events across Chicago. The company is known for their collaborations on signature events where they bring fundraisers, product launches, and other celebrations to life.
