This past weekend I attended BASH, a Party Conference in Phoenix, Arizona where partiers from all over the world united. We were able to hear first hand, expert tips from the best event/party planners around. I not only partied, I also competed in a table top competition. While it was a challenge to get everything from Colorado to Phoenix, my mission was accomplished.
There were some of the most gorgeous tables I had ever seen, they were breathtaking. I did not win the competition, but I loved my table and want to share it with you. The category for my table was Modern Elegance, decorated in gold, black and white.
I created the center piece starting with a gold ring and added gold drape fabric and 4" black ribbon.
Turning a clear cake plate upside down, I elevated the black centerpiece.
All the centerpiece stems were from the Christmas clearance at Hobby Lobby. I added a couple strands of battery operated fairy lights, tucking them in the arrangement.
I had several take home treats for each guest, starting with the cookie.
You might notice the plates are stacked at an angle. Not a mistake, I planned it this way, making room for the CD (Yep, I'm a mix master!), the cake pop and the BASH Menu.
We had not been given the dinner menu, so I created one.
Menu for Success
Arrive in Style
Meet & Mingle
Be Awestruck & Starstruck
Soak up the Sessions
Dine with the Rock Stars
Let Your Dreams Soar
Walk the Red Carpet
Party with The Partiologist
After purchasing the clip art from Etsy, I created all the printables used on the table. The menu, the napkin ring and the CD Cover.
The cookies before they were packaged.
The cookies were airbrushed, topped with a fondant frame, sash, letters and dots.
Just as the event had come to a close, one of the wait staff came over to me and told me that my table was the wait staff favorite. Needless to say, I gave her my cookie! :)
I just loved the gals who sat at my table, I was so happy to have met them all at the conference. Each and everyone has a special place in my heart!
Come dine with me!
