I moonlight as blogger and entrepreneur, but my day job is working in a marketing department with 7 lovely, smart women at Springfield Clinic. We basically run like an in-house ad agency to our organization. This year we sponsored Mary Poppins at The Legacy Theatre and as part of our sponsorship we received a private showing the eve before opening night! I was put in charge of the event details and décor, a task I welcomed with excitement. The night was fun, colorful, and full of magic!
Above is the basement of The Legacy Theatre with assorted round and cocktail tables.
I designed these floral arrangements in square vases that were slipped into cardboard boxes that I had Miles wrap in a brick pattern to mimic a chimney. The metallic, spikey floral pick I found at Hobby Lobby was the perfect “chimney sweep” with a touch of black spray paint.
The photo backdrop was inspired by this tutorial by A Practical Wedding. I put our fluffy clouds in front of some blue curtains I found at Target.
This is my hilarious cubemate and me…you should follow us. She was a big help that day! Thanks girl!
With the paper banner spelling out “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” and the strips of fabric hanging below, these two banners added the perfect touch of whimsy to the space.
The courtyard had a mix of chimney floral centerpieces and spoon centerpieces.
These “Spoonful of Sugar” centerpieces were adorable. It was a vase filled with sugar and glitter confetti, with a few spoons tucked in. The pained the spoon handles with enamel paint, like I’ve done before.
I really loved putting this event together and I’m so blessed to have a job where I can put my creativity to use!
