“Miss Representation” at Orson

It is always a pleasure to design an event at Elizabeth Falkner’s Michelin recommended restaurant, Orson.  Located in an old warehouse in San Francisco’s SOMA district, the menu features seasonal dishes, handcrafted cocktails, and plenty of cake.

On a warm summer evening this year, a group of business women who had traveled from all over Asia to attend a conference at San Francisco’s Moscone center were hosted by a local company, for a evening of dinner, and an evening of learning about the film, “Miss Representation.

Written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, “Miss Representation” is a film that explores how mainstream media contributes to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America.  The film includes stories from teenage girls and provocative interviews with politicians, journalists, entertainers, activists and academics. For more information about local screenings, and availability of this film to K-12 schools and Universities, please visit this link: Miss Representation.

The Floral Design Notes: The evening’s dinner was hosted on the main floor of the restaurant; The table top flowers included vases, gardens, and terrariums of summer flowers; The candlelight was provided by LED amber flicker lights set in frosted, glass votive cups (the candle choice for historic buildings, as well as windy California wine country weddings).
