Perfectly Planned by Shari was excited to have the opportunity to participate in the first “Forces Of Nature” Fundraiser Event in Pittsburgh on Friday, April 5th at Bakery Square! This fundraiser was to benefit Event Pros Take Action (EPTA) and the Pittsburgh Chapter of the International Special Event Society (ISES).
A talented group of Pittsburgh area event professionals created the “Forces Of Nature” Fundraiser Event and transformed a raw space, not meant for holding special events, into a remarkable representation of 4 elements of nature- Water, Fire, Earth, and Ice.
Shari and her team, participated in a tabletop gallery competition using an 8′ x 8′ area choosing to represent her own interpretation of ice in a show piece called “Frozen Fantasy”.
The construction of the backdrop started with close to 100 feet of sheer white fabric on a pipe and base frame. Overlapping the hanging fabric were approximately 150 feet of sparkling crystal strands in varying lengths and nearly 350 yards of satin ribbon collectively, in alternating colors of white, icy blue and silver. Additionally, there were vertical strips of Murano glass wallpaper that were each uplit from below to reflect in the light.
The table itself was entirely acrylic with a blue LED light illuminating from the center of the base.
The stools were hand constructed with bases made of stacked glass block and constructed chair pads upholdstered in white sherpa fabric.
The table centerpiece container was at an elevation of about 3 feet. The opening of the centerpiece was a crystal sphere vase. Snowy white branches were constructed to overflow the crystal vase and create a tree-like structure with acrylic icicles hanging from the branches. The glamorous centerpiece was nearly 8 feet wide! Around the base of the centerpiece were broken pieces of Carerra white marble with sparkling candles to represent a shattered iceberg effect.
Setting a table is all in the details. The dinner dishes were double layers of clear glass plated with crystal pieces in between the two layers. The top plate had the name “Frozen Fantasy” in vinyl lettering applied from underneath. Each setting had custom made napkins with the Frozen Fantazy logo applied and detailed with some “bling”. Sitting on the plate was a representation of the dessert course, frozen Coconut Snowballs, displayed in sugar frosted martini glasses. The full dinner menu was displayed on coordinating custom table menus.
