Dinner with Ben in Franklin Square

Downtown Syracuse has lots of unique outdoor space that make for great settings for an event. We had some fun and created an intimate evening with Ben (Franklin) in Franklin Square. This is a beautiful urban setting with a sense of history and nostalgia.

Our inspiration (besides the space) was the Apple Garden Toile Linen, which we popped with Coral Lamour.
Our centerpiece was a tablescape of old books, topiaries, and globes. Each place setting had a terry cloth apple green napkin, granny smith apple, and a pair of Ben Franklin sunglasses to add whimsey to the party. 

 This beautiful stationery suite highlighted the colors found in the linens and tablescapes. They added the perfect touch of class and elegance to the event.

 By adding white fabric panels to frame the pergola and filigree containers with votives hanging from the pergola, we made the space more intimate and framed the party.

 No party is complete without the people. That's truly what makes an event come to life.


The little touches and attention to detail are what make an event special. Franklin Square has a 'Secret Garden' feel to it and we used our special touches to draw the eye in and appreciate the uniqueness of this space. We added pretty pillows, books, and draped linens to the benches and lanterns and votives where Ben Franklin quotes were carved into stone.
