Corporate and Special Event Planning

When the Stars Align

When the Stars Align
I am huge believer in fate, everything happens for a reason. One of the events we worked last night came to us through one of those star aligning moments. I followed up to a telephone discussion on just the right day and in return received an email that said “…so your email was timely, do you think you could help us with our centrepieces?” And there it was, a design contract for a Christmas party with 800 people. Needless to say we were over the moon excited. 
The design challenges:
  • a grand room requires grand centrepieces
  • their poster for the event, although not intentional, had a Gatsby theme
  • they had already done feathers a previous year
  • whatever we designed would require us to be able to get 90 of everything

I’d be lying if I said this event didn’t make me lose sleep. Such a huge event and I wanted to make sure we rocked it. I wanted to make sure we made a huge impact.

The design changed several times and even on the day of it was still being tweaked as we put them together. 
In the end the client was super thrilled with them and so were we. Actually and  so were the guests because when we arrived to clean up we saw many of our hats walking around the room on the heads of the guests…and even the venue staff. Who doesn’t love a top hat!
