"Evoke a sophisticated, urban 1920's celebration with a venue that houses multiple spaces located all on the same floor, like the Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco," says Marilyn. "I'd set up speakeasy-type lounges in smaller rooms like the foyer, with its grand carved fireplace. Dinner and dancing would take place in the spectacular main ballroom, where the mahogany honeycomb ceiling creates a warm, intimate atmosphere."
