Things I loved about this event we just completed...
Using artists at work in an event space while guests mingle and dine. I was inspired by attending Artprize 2012 and seeing the Elephant piece http://www.artprize.org/adonna-khare/2012/elephants.
Having a "blank canvas" space like this with an entire wall that's a writing surface! Event planners have dreams about this kind of space. They might also dream about lights designed by George Nelson:-) Thanks to Kristy, our event designer who pushed the use of the lighting.
Working with talented musical artists like Matt Giraud who didn't win American Idol but a lot of us think he should have. I didn't know that he learned how to play piano because there was a piano in his dorm when he started at Western Michigan University!
Planning a 100 year anniversary gala was special and according to Google purple is the color for a 100 year anniversary incase you are wondering!
