It’s in the details

IMG_2149We have a wide variety of social profit clients whose organizations host regular fundraisers that need to exceed guest expectations without exceeding their budget. This is where working with an experienced event team becomes an advantage to our clients who have limited resources to produce and manage their event, or who are unsure how to best allocate their budget to ensure a great guest and stakeholder experience.

If you are hosting an event that is providing dinner for your guests, adding special details to their tables can be a great way to make an event stand out from the crowd and create a memorable evening for guests.

IMG_2426Scattered around the bases of the lanterns were ‘gold’ nuggets to add some texture to the tables and a nod to the prospectors who inspired the theme.  To finish off the tables, we used black bandanas as napkins to add a unique detail at each guest place setting.

We finished the space with an elegant backdrop of black sequins and gold voile and a draped sequins entrance to welcome guests to the event.
