This August, the Playboy Mansion hosted its renowned annual Midsummer Night’s Dream lingerie party in Los Angeles, while Las Vegas simultaneously hosted the same event at Marquee Nightclub at the Cosmopolitan—allowing Sin-City club-goers and partiers alike a taste of this storied soirée. By Dzign was chosen to provide the club party decor, specialty costumes and atmosphere entertainment for the famous affair, and it ended up being one of our favorite projects to date.
When coming up with an aesthetic for the club party decor, we knew we had to create an atmosphere that was enchanted, whimsical and oh-so ethereal—just like the fairy-filled forest of Shakespeare’s 16th-century comedy.
To bring our vision to life, By Dzign Decor created custom everything for the event. We worked with the club’s existing structure to craft personalized pieces that complimented the area’s existing aesthetic, while still portraying that whimsical Midsummer Night’s dream look we knew we had to communicate. Custom-crafting club party decor is always a challenge, as we knew we’d have a packed house chock-full of wild club-goers, so our crew worked tirelessly to ensure every single piece was well structured and completely party proof.
The By Dzign Printing team created large-format prints of everything from photographs of playmates to larger-than-life book pages, complete with wording from the first chapter of the famous Shakespearean play.
We knew we couldn’t have a Midsummer Night’s Dream party without amazing florals, and the By Dzign Floral department helped to bring that added touch of dreamy greenery to the ethereal affair. Our artists worked to create an 18-foot Playboy Bunny pool float—and covered every single square inch of the striking silhouette in roses.
Inside, our floral crew hung oversized blooms and wild, untamed greenery from the ceiling of the club entrance—helping to create that enchanted aesthetic from the moment guests arrived. The florals from the entrance culminated at a stunning, unstructured archway, which was complete with some of the most colorful, whimsical florals we’ve done to date.
Entertainment was perhaps one of the biggest pieces of the puzzle, and with the same event occurring simultaneously at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles, we knew we had to bring in some show-stopping acts. Our By Dzign Entertainment Agent worked to secure everything from an eye-catching aerialist to poolside mermaids to the fan-favorite “living vine.”
Overall, the event was such a success, and we’re so grateful to Tao Group, Marquee Nightclub at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and the Playboy brand for giving us the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to bring their Midsummer Night’s Dream event vision to life through custom club party decor and unforgettable entertainment.
