For Miss Charming

In January I visited with my brother and his family in Austin Texas.  My Sister-in-law and I were chatting about our blogs and she mentioned to me how much she enjoyed when I shared a bit of our event work on my blog.  So, for Gina aka Miss Charming the following is a post is for her and all of your too :0)

I'll give just a few bits of information about me and these photos.  First, I work for a company called Bloomster's which is located in San Jose CA.  We do flowers, landscaping, interior design, and events.  I should say lots and lots of events.  These pictures were all taken by me on my little pocket Cannon camera, so they are just snapshots for us to have a few archival photos to document this event.  All of these were taken at the Rosewood Hotel in Palo Alto for a young man's contemporary-industrial-lounge styled Bar Mitzvah. 

A close up of a large floral design on a credenza in the ballroom lobby.
I did all the placecards and table numbers.  Each pocket held a tag with each guest's assigned table number inside.
Each name was made using a Dymo label maker (this was hard on the hand).
There were two sets of these curved suede banquets to the sides of the placecard display.
All the girls had red pockets and the guys had grey.  I used the Petite Pocket Bigz XL Die to cut all these.
I omitted the top flap of the pocket so the tab would show.  These metal racks stood in front of a very cool stacked cake.
Some of the kids tables were square while others were tall rectangular white high gloss tables.
Tall white kids tables with battery operated candles which are not my favorite, but necessary.
Light cubes around the dancefloor.
A full look at the dancefloor and furniture.
That's black corregated card stock behind the number and it looked so industrial which was perfect for the entire look and feel of the party.
Another credenza floral design, but this time a wider view.

I hope you have enjoyed taking a peek into what I do.  To see more do visit our Bloomster's page on Facebook.  We add all kinds of event photos every week.

Happy event planning, Elizabeth
