It gets tougher especially when your client engages you for the 4th year consecutively to be their decorator. Simply because their expectation goes up, and they will want to see something new and fresh. We aren’t allowed to repeat the props either, unless we modify it so much that it is beyond recognition. Challenging it maybe, but we find it rather exciting. It pushes us to the limits to think both inside and outside the box, and sometimes be the box.
So we were invited to their corporate office, had the usual greetings and small talks, then the briefing for the event. “Gothic Glam nite”. Yes that was the theme for this year’s annual dinner. Oh fantastic. Forcing a smile and my eyes went irregular sized, while my brains was rushing to find the nearest relavantest ( if that is an actual word) example I can give from the database in my head. What is Gothic glam?! How on earth did they even come up with such a theme?!
But they were very kind. Nice to work with kind of people, we brained stormed awhile, we had to get the mental image of Halloween and horror out of the way for the start. As for the conclusion, we streamlined it down to be a, well, luxury , glamorous vampiric theme? oh well. Basically, is like a horror movie but without the spookiness, replaced with glitters instead.
The dinner did came out interesting though! Check out some of these pics, not much here tough, the rest are here in the website. We worked closely with Universal Event production, which provided the sound and light support and overall management.
