Greetings fellow planners!! My name is Whitney, i am 29 years old living right outside of Charlottesville, VA. I currently am an OR Scheduling Coordinator by day and a volunteer firefighter by night, However, since a teenager i have been involved in event planning and am looking forward to a prosperous business of my own.
The event that I am planning for my client is a fun 60th birthday party! More often than not a vision board is brought together with color pallets and style. With this client more so than color it was the theme that brought the inspiration together! My client chose a dance /theater theme because she was a dancer as child.The Chosen location was also inspired by her theme and childhood. She has fond memories of The Count Basie Theater in New Jersey. A well-known attraction from her memory so she chose to bring it home for this beautiful milestone!
Recognizing that color is very important when designing an event, my client wanted a way to include her two daughters into her special day. She chose to do so by using both of their favorite colors along with her own for decor! The three major colors for this inspiration board were blue purple and yellow.
For this event we set the anticipation by sending out an invitation that is both eye catching, color coordinated and fun to give guests an idea of both what to wear as well as what atmosphere can be expect upon arrival. A tasty bright yellow eye catching Champagne pass will greet guests upon their arrival. As her guests enter the room, the ambiance will be set through the use of dim lighting table, decor and inviting music. It was important to my client to have guests seated in an arrangement that would have all eyes on stage as you would in a theater setting. Guest appetite will be tickled with an aromatic Caribbean themed dinner! The client will enter with a surprise dance performance. Dressed in a long elegant, flowing dress, dazzled with a jeweled hair piece and a fun twist bright twist on her shoes, ballet slippers. Soon after dinner guests will quickly be amused when they find themselves involved in the night's events! It is my client's desire to have her guest join her in a dance performance following her solo! At the end of the evening to show appreciation for guest attendance, as they depart they will be presented with to-go deserts to savor over the ride home as they discuss cherished moments from the evening.
