I adored these details at the Game of Modern Love


At last weekend’s the Game of Modern Love, a benefit at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, there were a lot of fun party details I adored.

Here's video of atmosphere at the party:

In honor of its theme of celebrating love and artistic twosomes, several couples dressed in really fun costumes. There were two sets of John Lennon and Yoko Ono: one from the bed-in days complete with pajamas and a blanket, the other dressed in white during their more glam era.



At one point, both couples were sitting on a couch talking and it was quite a freaky flashback.

At a photo booth, guests could have their picture taken as a keepsake. They could choose a background from famous locations all over the world. My favorite was the setting that made guests look as if they were posing in front of the Eiffel Tower. Here's video of the group in the picture above having their photo made:

Passed hors d’oeuvres were on trays that resembled an artist’s palette – a clever touch for an art museum.


And instead of the usual small round cocktail tables spread out here and there where guests stand and eat, there were two long narrow tables for everyone to gather at, which made it easier to strike up a conversation with others.


The tables were decorated with bright green and white chevron striped tablecloths and clear glass vases filled with with red tulips - a gorgeous color combination that had me dreaming of spring.
