Dessert Buffets

Have you noticed all the people doing wonderful things with dessert buffets recently? Very cool I reckon.

I love it. Amy Atlas is the one in the US who does this for the superstars, but we get many requests to replicate the balloon part of the whole set up. Some of the dessert bars we have decorated have so many tempting treats...

Bigger is Better

Originally this client asked for me to cover the ceiling with loose balloons. If you notice the venue is ECQ bar at Circular Quay - floor to ceiling windows. The effect would have been a big balloon release...that would have been very quickly over

So after talking with the client we came up with some big taper and starpoint designs for the room. There were only going to be 35 guests. Big impact, consuming some empty space and creating atmosphere was the design brief.
The client had also ordered some extra lighting effects from their DJ, so we chose the gold and silver foils to maximise the lighting.

Also our designs blended perfectly with the modern, sophisticated style at ECQ Bar. Add the harbour bridge as the backdrop and you have an awesome night lined up.

Half Yearly Sales

We have done some decor for a few Harvey Norman stores for their half yearly sales and this year was no exception. However, times are a bit tough in retail, so the franchisees were after long lasting displays and something very cost effective. Tapers to the rescue!

I started playing with some taper foils and came up with the following design. They have big impact, so the client didn't need as many as usual. They are long lasting, so they went well over the required 4 weeks, and they are a new idea that was very inviting for the customer, and it got people into the store. We added the personalised 20" star with SALE to complete the designs.

Client loved it and wants another new design for next time....
