Often, (probably because of our name) people think we only do weddings, however, we fill our schedule with all sorts of events including birthday parties, anniversary parties, and corporate events. Recently we were honored to create the centerpieces for a fundraiser dinner. 49 gallons of water beads, 160 vases & LED lights, and 52 mirrors. This was what went into the centerpieces for the Bloch School of Business Entrepreneur of the Year awards.

As a former graduate of the school, I was so honored to have been hired to create the centerpieces for this event. The awards and the dinner serve as a fundraiser, so the goal was to create centerpieces that created an impact on a small budget.
We designed this centerpiece using aspects of the event's marketing campaign, which included the words "Perseverance, Grit, and Fearless". The styling was meant to evoke an inner city feel, but with clean, modern accents. The result was a centerpiece constructed of three cylinder vases with the words written in block up the sides of the vases. The vases were filled to the top with clear water beads and were given a white LED light and placed on a mirror.
The centerpieces were perfect for the room. They fit the theme and really added to the atmosphere of the night.
