Dreams come True... Fairy Tale Ball 2009

This past weekend was the Annual Fundraiser for the Children's Museum of Southeastern Connecticut at Ocean Beach. It was such an enchanted evening, where designers came from across the state to decorate the ballroom in the theme of a fairy tale of their choice. The room was filled with an incredible energy, and the creativity that came to life on the tables just blew us away. As you entered the ballroom ladies were transformed with sparkles, jeweled crowns and boas, everything a little girl dreams of playing with growing up. And in the corner of the room was a photo booth, supplied by Photobooth Planet, that was filled throughout the night. This is such a great addition to any event, especially at your wedding. The pictures come out instantly and are personalized with the date and your logo or monogram. We had way too much fun getting our picture taken in the booth! So for a night, we got to get dressed up, cocktail and mingle with guests, raise money for children and live in our own little fairy tale world.

Each Guest Received a gift bag that included a frog chocolate truffle, and custom designed sugar lip balm from Jennie Fresa's makeup line. The bags were tied with a personalized tag, each one with a different quote about being kissed.

Guests had a hand made mask at their place setting that Lucinda custom designed to make up a table of 5 princesses, 4 frogs, and one prince. The table Linen is one from the new collection at Rentals Unlimited which helped to create the illusion of water. (I am so in love with this linen, can't wait to use it on cocktail tables for a wedding on the water)

Gold Chargers sat on top of Leaf Placemats, via Grandin Road, with custom designed menus by Chocolate Creative Design.

The prince at the table had a crown of jewels to wear.

Frog Mask, Lucinda used ping pong balls to build out the eyes, these masks were truly amazing.

In the center of the table we created a pond, that glowed softly in the center of the table; built up with a wall of 3 different kinds of moss.

*Extra special thanks to Jennie Fresa and Anna Sawin for collaborating with us on this project.
