M&M's Museum of Chocolate

One of my favorite commercials during the Super Bowl this year was the M&M's "Just My Shell" spot with Ms. Brown. Ms. Brown is the new M&M's spokeswoman and in case you didn't know, the voice behind the self-proclaimed Chief Chocolate Officer is Vanessa Williams!

Celebrations expert and event planner to the stars Jes Gordon played a huge role in the debut of Ms. Brown recently. This month M&M's launched the Museum of Chocolate in Soho in New York City, an exhibit that was produced by Jes and her team. Take a look at the amazing display they put together including 300 lb sculpture of Ms. Brown herself!

  • This picture of inside the Museum of Chocolate showcases the many photos of Ms. Brown. Jes and her team applied vinyl to the walls and incorporated brown draping throughout the space.

  • The lounge area of the exhibit had subtle, ambient lighting with brown carpet and chocolate accents on the tables. Jes and her team worked the lighting into the space very carefully as they were dealing with many heat sensitive chocolate sculptures.

  • We love this ode to Vanessa Williams and the oversized mirror behind the chairs. What a great thrown for Ms. Brown!

  • Even though chocolate brown was the major color for this exhibit, Jes and her team had a lot of fun adding color to the space and incorporating colorful books to this library wall.
