Event Planning / Gala Centerpieces

24 May

This past week has been very busy. Reason number 1 why this is only my third post this week. Work is definitely picking up and our camps start in only 9 days! I can’t believe they are already here!

I definitely want to update you on how my preparations for the Gala are coming. Catch up on all my previous preparations here, here and here!

I’ve been working hard on the centerpieces recently and want to outline for you what I’m thinking. These tissue paper sunbursts are made from the remains of the large flowers I showed you last week.

I love being resourceful!IMG_6258

I also put all the even smaller trimmings in glass vases.

To keep in line with the Cinco de Mayo theme and colors, I’ve designed 4 different centerpieces that will we randomly scattered around the room. Different collections on each table, so that it looks both cohesive and interesting.

Centerpiece 1: Tissue paper poms on skewers in a glass vase.

What are your party planning thoughts? What should I “make sure to remember” and “definitely not forget”?
