Overview

Imagination, ingenuity and experience to design and produce spectacular events is what defines Illusions of Grandeur. Heading into our thirtieth year of producing creative décor for corporate and social events, we are the trusted, go-to source for all of your event design needs. Based on the Monterey Peninsula, with strong community ties, we partner with caterers, photographers, destination management companies, and entertainment agencies to create an event that is a magically transforming experience you and your guests will cherish for years to come.

We are honored to be involved in events such as the AT&T Pro-Am Golf Tournament, The Red-Bull Moto GP Series, The Concours d’Elegance, Cooking for Solutions, The First Tee Open, and the Quail Motorsports Gathering. We have worked with high-profile clients including AT&T, Genentech, NORCAL, Sysco and countless others. Whether you are a bride looking to create an unforgettable celebration of your love, or a meeting planner tasked with branding your corporate event, whether it is a grand, formal occasion or a casual impromptu celebration, our goal is to put our wealth of resources to work and bring your vision to life.

Event Design

Inspiration, collaboration and communication are the words that define our process. As your full-service event design and décor source, our team will handle your event through every step from concept development to production. Your initial consultation will establish the direction of the project. We will take your ideas, always respectful of your budget parameters, and translate them to the environment you envision. Our services include event design, space planning, managing site logistics, on site labor, and interfacing with other trusted vendors.

You can rest assured knowing we keep details of your event confidential, are fully insured, and adhere to all requirements of the State of California. Our promise to you is to deliver a magically transforming experience you and your guests will rave about for years to come.

Wedding Design

A marriage is the joyous joining of two people.  Often, experience tells us, it is also the joining of two distinctly different styles.  As a creative team we work with you to interpret your vision and translate it into an event that reflects the uniqueness of your partnership.

As a design firm we also know that any good event starts with the basics.  Our inventory, however, is anything but basic.  Our couture collection includes specialty chairs, tables, furniture, bars and unique pieces guaranteed to express your personalities.   We customize a variety of design services to your specific locale, including ceiling and wall treatments and grand floral creations.

We welcome the opportunity to meet with you and your wedding planner to assist in making your day the spectacular event that will create beautiful memories for years to come.
