There’s no denying that Beverly Hills knows how to throw a party—but this Chinese New Year party featured on BizBash took things to new heights with its vibrant decor, lush floral designs, and ambitious philanthropic mission.
Hosted by local plastic surgeon Dr. Gabriel Chiu and his wife, Christine, the February 19 event at Two Rodeo had a Chinese New Year theme.
Chiu worked with Los Angeles-based event firm Aliana Events to execute her vision, which involved a re-creation of the grand entrance to L.A.’s Chinatown; performances by ribbon dancers, martial artists, and other Chinese performers; a parade of dragon dancers; and a lavish dinner party in an on-site tent. Eddie Zaratsian created eye-catching red and yellow floral designs for the celebration. We provided gorgeous red chair covers for the celebration.
While the Chius originally planned to keep the guest list at 88 people (eight is a lucky number in Chinese culture), they ended up hosting about 130 attendees. For each guest, the family made a donation to support a child in China for one year.
