It's only Wednesday, and I've already worked 36 hours this week... so I'm exhausted. The event went amazingly well, and everyone was extremely pleased. I don't have much more in me for tonight - so I'll just post some pictures from the event.

This is our registration area, and I was in charge of this area during the event... it was my job to make sure everyone that attended had a seat even if they didn't RSVP.

A photo of the ballroom - we had 51 (514 people) tables in here with alternating table linens in a color scheme of brown, orange, yellow... very pretty.

The event program, and our gift to each guest - a box of chocolates.

Hard to explain to people about taking these pics - didn't want to say "they are for my blog" but I thought that the salad was really pretty... so I wanted to share it with you guys. Sadly, I didn't get a shot of the main course... because well, I forgot... and I thought people would have looked at me funny. Even if my group ate after the event because we ran out of seats for the volunteers.

The dessert was absolutely gorgeous... I loved the chocolates in the heart shape with the gold accents... since the event's name is Heart of Gold.
I'll do my Q&A post tomorrow... I only have one question, but I just don't have the energy to dig around in my email inbox to find it right now. A full night of sleep will do wonders - I'll feel human again tomorrow. I literally fell asleep in the tub earlier... but I did manage to get in a workout when I got home today.


  1. Very pretty dessert~! Looks like the whole event was very well done!

  2. I have a question for you - where do you work and what do you do there? What is your employer all about? I think I remember reading something about non-profit one time..sorry. I haven't had my coffee yet. Words are still challenging. :-)

  3. What a beautiful salad!! I'm going to have to try that one some time....

  4. The whole event looked wonderful! I'm glad to hear that it was a success!

    What I want to hear about are the compliments you got on the dress!!!!

  5. so how did you feel wearing your dress while everyone else was in black??

  6. It sounds as though the event was a raging success...

    Beautiful presentations abound all around...
