Adventures in Event Planning

Right before the holidays, I got a call from an engineering firm asking if I would consider coordinating decor & entertainment at their annual party.  I said sure, sounds like fun :)
Well, after weeks of planning & booking & making new stuffs, the party was a great success :)
--sorry about the bad quality; phone pic--
There were nearly 400 guests, 40 tables, fire dancers, stilt walkers, photo-booth, fortune tellers, temp. tattoo artists & circus performers :)
The tree centerpieces looked amazing; I even gave one away as a door prize & have orders for a few purchases :) 
We also had quite a few huge vases filled with feathers, masks, & glittery trinkets spread around the room--so much fun :)  
We spent nearly the whole day setting up & decorating; it was a lot of fun, but exhausting: if I ever decide to do this again, will definitely hire some help for moving stuff in & tearing down.  I didn't take anything huge, but we did cart in a bunch of giant vases to go around the room, along with centerpieces for 40 tables & accessory decor too.  Whew; makes me tired just thinking about it, lol :)
If you are interested in owning one (or more) of these cute trees: let me know, I have 9 available & can offer special blog pricing of $100 (I'll even throw in 3 glass candle holders).
