2017 Rose Ball Committee Announces Ball’s Decorations Theme

The 2017 Rose Ball Committee has chosen The Palette of the Rose as the theme for the decorations of the 24th Rose Ball, Greenville’s longest-running charitable community event. The Rose Ball will take place on September 15, 2017 at The Poinsett Club.

Allison Spinks, 2017 Rose Ball Decorations Chair, explained this year’s theme: “The Rose Ball of 2017 is all about the “palette” of the rose. The choice of this theme celebrates not only the many varieties of colors of the rose but also the depth and meaning of such a historic and lovely flower.”

The 2017 Rose Ball decorations will feature the styling of more than 20 artisans, each of whom will display their creativity throughout the Poinsett Club. These room designers will transform the club’s entrance, hallway, rooms and a staircase into works of art that illuminate the hue of the rose. Various rose colors will be highlighted, including light pink, peach, orange, coral, yellow, white, cream, purple, dark pink, burgundy and green.
