Congratulations Billy Joe and Maddie

A  December wedding with the colors of ice blue and silver is sure to be pretty, but this reception was gorgeous!  The tables had floor-length white table cloths topped with long, silvery grey satin overlays.  The chairs had matching silver/grey satin covers with ice blue sashes.  The high/low centerpieces consisted of three styles: tall glass vases holding blue and ivory hydrangeas with tall branches hung with crystals, tall Eiffel tower vases with blue hydrangeas and ivory orchids and a blue and ivory hydrangea wreath around the bottom, or shorter silver vases holding blue and ivory hydrangeas.  Of course, each centerpiece was surrounded by votive candles.  To tie all the colors together, we had turquoise blue Uplights around the whole room.  It was all so beautiful!

After the entrance into the Reception, Billy Joe and Maddie went to the dance floor, which we adorned with their custom wedding monogram, for their First Dance.  (Their monogram was also on their invitations, programs, and napkins.)  The dinner buffet came next, as well as the cake cutting and toasts.  Maddie’s four-tiered ivory cake had natural frosting lines and was accented with blue and ivory flowers.  Billy Joe’s chocolate cake had chocolate frosting and chocolate covered strawberries.  The parents’ dances followed and then it was party time!   Our dance floor lighting also added to the mood of the evening, which was great for this fun-loving crowd.

After a bit we stopped for the Dollar Dance.  This couple asked for no more than one dollar from each guest, as their focus was on dancing with their guests and not on the money.  That was a very sweet gesture.  The bouquet and garter tosses came later and everyone danced until the Last Dance.  At the end of the evening, the Newlyweds ran through lines of sparklers, climbed in to their vintage limo, and enjoyed their own personal police escort to their wedding night hotel.  Congratulations Billy Joe and Maddie!

Great Party Flowtrend

What a great company party!  The company truly showed how much they value and appreciate their employees.  The whole party was absolutely beautiful in shades of blue, with custom blue linens, gorgeous centerpieces with candles, and to tie it all in, we had 15 blue uplights giving the whole room an elegant blue glow.  We also had some fun dance floor lighting and a GOBO monogram with the company’s logo projected on a wall.  It was gorgeous!!

This crowd had a great time dancing and enjoyed our photo booth.  They also loved the door prizes.  Most of the door prizes were given by drawing, but we also played games to determine the winners of the three grand door prizes.  The games were hilarious!  Over 75% of the employees won prizes and the Ultimate Grand Prize winner got a new iPod Air!

After a great night of food, drinks, prizes, photos, dancing and fun, the night came to a close.  After the last dance, the guests went upstairs to their hotel room or went to the hotel bar to continue the festivities.  Thanks Flowtrend, we had a great time!!
