Central's Summer Ball 2012

This post has been a long time coming but here it is... A collection of photos from Central's Summer Ball last month at The Old Vic Tunnels. I had so much fun working on the designs for this event and I'm happy (and relieved) to say that the night itself was a big success! Here's what it looked like:

The drinks reception - can you spot the willow balls?

The sparkly entrance tunnel turned out really well - definitely one of my favourite parts.

I'm glad we spent so many hours cutting strips of fabric and attaching those tiny little LED candles, the end result was so pretty! 

It's lucky we had lots of space to fill (and lots of drink to be drunk) so many people came!

I love how the fabric canopy looked under the lighting as it changed colour all night.

The tables in the drinks reception had tree centrepieces with these cute little birdies on! 

I work behind the bar at the Tunnels normally, so it was fun to design for a venue I know and love so well.

This has to be one of my favourite projects I've worked on so far. It was my first event design, and I've definitely got the bug. As much as I love designing for theatre, it was amazing to be able to work so freely with my own theme and just make things look pretty! 

I have to say a special thanks to all of the team that helped bring Central's Summer Ball to life - including Rendezvous Events who provided the fabulous entertainment. They also made this fun video (thanks guys!):

Looking back a month on like this makes me sad that it's all over, but hopefully this is just the beginning of my event designing adventures...
