Hilton Daytona Underwater Event

Experience the serene wonders of a world underneath the waves. The Daytona Hilton Oceanfront served as the perfect waterfront venue to create an aquatic dream world. Shades of cyan, sapphire, navy, and aqua swirled around the room, establishing the oceanic feel of the event.


To create the natural flow of the tides, a spandex ceiling video draped at the entrance of the room captured the beauty of ocean life. The water ebbed and flowed while sea creatures swam and loose, iridescent draping captured the fluidity of the open ocean.


Aquatic-inspired centerpieces adorned tables, enhancing the underwater effect. Tablescapes showcased cylindrical vases filled with bubbling water beads, submerged with tropical protea and uplit with dynamic LED. Complementing the engulfed arrangements, floral coral reef-inspired focals captured the contrast of the candlelit warmth with the cool of the water.


A faux aquatic sunbeam backdrop centered the room with oceanic boulders and blooming marine buds, drawing the eye and helping achieve an immersive undersea event.


“We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back from whence we came.” ―John F. Kennedy
