The Thalian Association Fundraiser A Little Night Magic
A majority of our work is with weddings but every once in a while we get to work with an amazing association and design their fundraiser. The always generous Paula Corbett offered her home to host the event and we were off with planning an "Over The Top" event! We were raising money for the The Thalian Hall Association so we incorporated a night of magic with great food, entertainment and an auction of some amazing prizes. Guests were greeted with a glass of champagne as they entered Paula and Albert's home and were led to the backyard which we designed with a modern all white feel. Maura Kropke was playing musical selections from the plays that would be seen on stage throughout the year which brought guests to the back yard. Guests were able to enjoy the bar while Pine Valley Market passed beautifully presented appetizers like shrimp wrapped with a cilantro flavored cotton candy!! Food stations were around the yard for guests to enjoy and we finished with night with a Bananas Foster Flambe station! High Performance Lighting truly stepped it up with the hanging strands of lights throughout Paula's beautiful Oak Trees. Once the sun went down these lights stole the show! We also used High Performance Lighting to hang Alissa's silks so that she could perform her Ariel routine for guests to enjoy. Again I worked with Design Perfection to provide a design at the front entrance that would catch the guests eye as soon as they pulled up. Design Perfection was able to provide the bar set up, bistro tables, the food displays and even was able to make and stain 4 matching easels for me on the day of the event!! Guests had a wonderful time and more importantly we raised money for a great association!
