The venue was the Caisse de Depot et placements atrium. The theme was white, the look achieved was a whimsical winter wonderland. It was chic and modern and ready just in time for the 340+ guest.
We never pulled off a party of this magnitude, mostly because all 38 centerpieces (including bar area) had to be made on location. We had 7 hours and 100 sq ft of space to create magic. I said it then and I will say it again, I think my heart stopped between 2 and 4pm. I really didn't know if we would be done on time. Stresssssss!
The vases contained 6 white glitter branches adorned with pearls and approximately 6 dozen individually glued on dendrobium orchid heads. The work involved was painful but the final product was sublime. I stayed until the daylight fell so I could snap a few pictures of the lit up vases. Each vase had 3 submersible lights at different level which illuminated the glittery snow inside the vase. I would have loved to have a chance to see the tables lit up with the candles too but I was covered in glue, glitter, tears and sweat and guest were arriving, so I took the door and hoped it would look as good as I had imagined. As per the feedback, it looked better than the client imagined. Yay!
