Twisty Air Arch

The Rainbow Serpent Aboriginal Debutante Ball is for all those girls varying in ages that for one reason or another never made their Debute into Society at 17 through the Catholic, Rotary or Boggabri Deb Balls. Alot of young girls are facing many social and confidence issues at that age, so how wonderful that through our Aboriginal Community here in Gunnedah they get the opportunity once again.

This year the theme was Rainbow Serpent, so it was colour colour colour! We made the big Air Arch in all the colours of the girls gowns to be presented through, and then just carried that throughout the room with the colour theme.

In a small town like Gunnedah
I am totally AMAISED at our Community Spirit!
Our Gunnedah South School is having a fund raiser tonight
and decided to host a 
Winter Ball.

It took 2 weeks for the tickets to be sold, there were another 10 tables quickly added
and then they sold!
Over 300 people are attending tonight's ball to raise funds for the school.
Its very nice to see. 
I'm not much of a socialite myself, I much prefer to have my fun helping to decorate an event and then go home rather than party on all night, and I really enjoy having this roll.
I feel very privileged to be involved in some small way at events such as this one.

So tonight's event was organised by a very dedicated and frantic couple of volunteers from the School.
We worked together to help bring their theme to life.

We have the ceiling fairy lights.
(These have been up now since Mid March and this will be their last event in the hall this year!)
A gorgeous way to create an intimate atmosphere

Simple Ceiling lights can be done at just about any venue.
If you would like something like this for your next event, just pop instore and we can work out what you will need.

To frame the stage I erected a chain of pearl arch in the colours that represent the event.

We used the black rectangle table clothes
Light Blue Satin Table Runners
Silver Organza Table Runners
Round Mirrors.
Large Glass Vases
Glass Marbles
Black Twisted Willow
LED Battery Operated Lights up the Willow Branches
(They aren't turned on though.... I was a little early with my photos!)

At the entrance to the ball
we made just a simple air arch in the theme colours...

We had to sqeeze it in, but it looked lovely!

If anything here looks like something you might like for your event,
please don't hesitate to come on by and we can talk turkey!!

The Dorothea McKeller Society 
conducts an annual
Poetry Awards that attracts competitors from all over Australia.

Each year children from everywhere submerge on Gunnedah.
for the announcement of the winners.
Each year, it is my pleasure to decorate this event.

This is how it looked this year...

Arch over the welcome desk.

Guests walked through the door to the Civic and under the arch to check in...

Balloon Clusters were throughout the reception area
and then into the staging area..
Unfortunately it was too dark and wide to get a decent photo,
but here is the one section that was lit up.

As all Balloons from Enchanted Events & Balloons are treated for the maximum life
theater goers will enjoy a decorated civic for the coming weeks..

Its always exciting when I get asked to do jobs like this....

Its the official opening today for the new
Gunnedah Rural Health Centre

Lots of official people
including local dignitaries
and the Minister for Health
will be looking at my balloons.......

This is what we did.

There are two deluxe columns
These come with all different types of "toppers"
but this time I have just used the 3' Round Latex balloon

String of Pearl Arch

It looked awesome in the walkway...

Cant wait to see what goes in the paper..
