Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Breakfast

20ft balloon wall and taper columns
 Hi again!  I have been very lazy about blogging so I will try to post more!  This morning we did this cool decor for the Making Strides Against Break Cancer kick-off breakfast.  We created a 20ft balloon wall that spelled out MAKING STRIDES and some lovely taper columns for the ballroom.  Out in the registration area, we hung single tapers and made some shooting stars columns with awareness ribbons at the top.  The event was a huge success and we always enjoy working with Tracey from the America Cancer Society.

CarMax Anniversary Celebration

Just a quick little job of centerpieces for CarMax's Quarterly Celebration.  They wanted number centerpieces to show their 20th anniversary and some to indicate the number of cars they sold last quarter (797!!).

Here are an example of each type of centerpiece we created.  These numbers are great for birthdays (Sweet 16, anyone?) and anniversaries - or anything where you have a big number to celebrate.

Thanks to CarMax for letting us be a part of your anniversary!

NCSU wins the Paul Simon Internationalization Award

We were so honored to create balloons for NC State's celebration of winning the Simon Internationalization award.  The Senator Paul Simon Award for Campus Internationalization is a recognition given to the colleges and universities that use innovative, creative approaches for significant and great progress toward comprehensive internationalization.  You can check out more about this award here.

For this event, we created centerpieces with globes and NCSU's signature colors of Red & White.  We also made Party Poles for around the room, some helium bouquets, and a Mr. Wuf mascot holding a globe balloon.  It was held in a great venue at the Talley Student Center.  SO proud of NC State for receiving this honor!  Go Pack!

Toyotathon at Fred Anderson Toyota & Pre-Owned

Do you need a new car?  Fred Anderson Toyota and Pre-Owned have decorated to make your car shopping more fun!  We did hanging columns for both the new and pre-owned showrooms in Toyota's signature colors of red, white, and black.  The main showroom was quite a fun challenge since the ceilings were 3 stories up.  We got to use a cherry picker and spent an exciting morning up in the air!  We think these hanging columns and arch add a lot to the showrooms and we enjoyed working with the great team at Fred Anderson.

Thanksgiving at the Crabtree Marriott

The Crabtree Marriott is one of our favorite venues because of the beautiful ballrooms, but mostly because of the amazing people you get to work with there.  From the event planners, to the banquet managers, to the staff - all of them are there to make your even amazing!  I know this firsthand because we've hosted an even there and I couldn't have asked for more professional and dedicated people to help make it happen.

So today we were able to help add a little something special to their Thanksgiving Buffet Brunch by adding a photo op area in the entrance foyer.  We made a huge tree with fall color leaves, some pumpkins, a cute and fat little turkey, and an owl perched up in the tree.  So fun and festive for this holiday!

Today and every day, we are so thankful for our customers who let us be a part of their celebrations and trust us to make their events beautiful.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

Another Alexander Family YMCA event!

We were pleased to be called by the Alexander YMCA again for the celebration event of a very successful fundraising campaign.  The theme once again was "Growth" and they requested hanging flowers (we did 22 to cover the whole gym!), flower columns and some mini-columns for the screens. 

If you didn't see the first event, it was similar, but also featured a matching flower arch at the entry.  We loved the different shades of blue and how nice everything looked with the linens and floral centerpieces.

Thank you to Kim and everyone at Alexander YMCA!  We enjoyed working with you again.

Ballerina Bat Mitzvah at Brier Creek Country Club

For this bat mitzvah at Brier Creek Country Club, we created 12ft tall toe shoes in Pale Pink with the girl's name between them.  These served as the entrance to the ballroom.  We also recreated her favorite tu-tu costume in Spring Lilac.  Add to that, hanging chandeliers and helium bouquets around the room, and this was one lovely event.  Congrats to Dana on her big day and thank you for letting us be a part of it!
