The Viva Havana auction and fundraiser which had held my thoughts hostage for so many months prior, ended up being a success. I had planned out everything ahead and took the time I needed to follow through with all my projects. It all fell into place despite sick children and foul weather. So I thought I’d show you some pictures of the event in case you missed seeing them.
Mark had done a fundraiser last year so we already had the street scene gobo, a picture we projected on to the wall.
The palm trees were all my making. Some found columns plus paper bags and Pinterest and I only spent another $50 to bring the trees to life.
The process wasn’t complicated but the leaves became monotonous in the making. .
Everyone kept exclaiming how much fun they were having that I knew it was a success. If you ask people to give, everyone who does so needs to feel compensated. Our gift is good food and beautiful event decor.
Besides my trees and my big paper flowers, this look was achieved with Black and white drapes, fete lighting, cocktail tables, and up-lighting within the aqua and hot pink color scheme.
