Shenhua Moon Festival - Quirang Country Gardens Gunnedah - 17th September 2013

Shenhua celebrated a traditional Moon Festival
at Quirang Country Gardens
last Tuesday 17th September..

This was a very challenging event to decorate.
As upto lunchtime the Monday before there was a possibility of a venue change!
It had been pouring rain all day Monday & Tuesday 
and it stopped just intime for the start of the celebration!
Timing was perfect!

But due to the dreadful rain, there were some other decorations we had planned
for that couldn't be done on the exterior due to the rain
and the havock it could play on expensive equipment!

Even though we had so many hurdles,
the event came off with flying colours
and lots of possitive comments from the Management of Shenhua
and the many community members in attendance.

Marquee 1:
About 70 odd Lanterns with LED Lights.

Plants were from
Lease Leaves

I hung white LED lights all around both marquees

We used Periwinkle Blue Satin Table Clothes.
Large Urns with Black Willow and LED light Centrepieces

Marquee 2:

Around 25 lanterns
LED Lights hung around the marquee

 We also had two tall bar tables at the entrances provided by Enchanted Events & Balloons

LED Lights threaded through the garden
A dozen lanterns hung through the trees. 

Candlebags around the gardens and Marquee
Battery operated lights up the trees.

Memory Lane: Allison Everliegh's Wedding 1994 - Gunnedah Golf Club

This wedding is from 1994 I think.
I remember Allison being very sure of what she wanted her wedding to look like
but at the same time very frugal with her budget.
We saved where we could and added more where needed.

Allison had the 5 metre backdrop, a ceiling canopy, chair covers with gold ties for the bridal table, a simply decorated bridal table, decorated cake table, balloon centrepieces and decor.

Dorothea McKeller Poetry Awards 2013 - Theme: Where Ever the Wind Blows

The Dorothea McKeller Awards 
is a Nation Wide Poetry Awards Competition.
Website here

Ive been decorating these awards since 2004, the first year I took over the Business.
Each year we try something different
but this year we really went over the top...

Reception Entrance:

In line with this years theme:
Where Ever the Wind Blows
and in conjunction with the guest speaker who is a Quantas Pilot
we decided to have Cloud Balloons on the Stage

This is a cluster of around 50 - 60 balloons ranging in size from
90cm to 20cm.
These have been filled with helium so they float above the stage area.

This photo doesnt give any indication of the size of these balloons,
but they are around 4 metres across.

Here is a photo of the full stage.
That is a grand piano in the centre of the stage,
so that is some indication of the size.

Organisers said the balloons were a total hit with the guests and award winners.
