Turning ideas into action

I enrolled into QC after I planned my wedding. I enjoyed it that much i decided this is what I want to do. I am looking forward to helping people with not only planning their special event, but also the event production allowing my clients to enjoy themselves.

I got married in September 2013 and had a traditional ceremony but created a Mad Hatter themed reception. All decorations had to be made so I held craft days at my house on weekends and put my friends to work.

Although my ceremony was not themed I still added little touches for my reception
- The girls jewellery
- The boys cuff links

Decorations that were created:
- Stackable cups
- Single cups with the Cheshire Cat smile
- Glitter balls with butterflies – with blue and pink crystals
- Stackable hats
- Vases with hand rolled paper roses and butterflies – with blue and pink crystals
- My father in-law built our Mad Hatter Hat wishing hat
- Rose gardens on the cake table to have cake balls sticking out
- I had peacock feathers scattered on the tables

I have a supplier who creates templates for table and venue accessories/décor such as:
- Eat me tags (for bonbonnieres)
- Seating plan
- Menu’s
- Place cards

I needed to find bonbonnieres to go with the theme and I thought lollipops went really well.

Lighting was also very important to set this venue off. I hired a lighting company to come in and set up coloured lights to match my theme.

Each of the tables was decorated in a different colour and Mad Hatter theme in order for guests to locate their allocated seat. They were set out as the Mad Matter tea party. Long tables that looked cluttered
- Mad Hatter table had green and black feathers in the middle
- White Rabbit Table had pink and white feathers in the middle
- Cheshire Cat Table has pink and blue feathers in the middle

I had a photo booth with Mad Hatter props for our guests to use. I also had a Mad Hatter hand made guess book from America to match everything
