For the fourth year, we have once again designed a fabulous table for Phoenix NACE Tantalizing Tables monthly meeting. What a fun event full of creativity!
- What is your theme?
An Indian Sangeet Event
- How did you come up with your design?
Apropos Creations does numerous multicultural weddings and events ranging from Filipino, Laos, Pakistani, Greek Orthodox but mostly Indian.
- What items were sued to design your space?
We brought in colorful fabrics to create this beautiful and artful backdrop, as well as a settee where the bride and groom will be sitting and guests approach them to wish them well for their upcoming wedding, a coffee table and a side table made of capiz shells. We embellished this our area with Moroccan lamps, random flowers in dyed bottles, an Indian umbrella placed onto a post, Lord Ganesha, elephants and lit the backdrop with uplights set in gold tone..
- Did you use rental items from local vendors? Which items which vendors?
My creative partners were Ms. Ginia Lucas of Y Knot Party Rentals who also does a whole lot of Hindu events. They provided some of the fabric, the settee, and the lamps. The flowers were from Lori Apt of In Bloom Floral Events in Phoenix, Arizona, and the lighting effect was provided by Chris Birkett of Birkett Entertainment based in Scottsdale, Arizona.
- Tell us about what the best setting would be for your design (wedding, corporate, dinner party, style of venue, time of year).
A Sangeet, which is a Sanskrit word for “as sung together” is a celebration that typically takes place the night before the wedding. This event is a time for celebrating, singing, dancing, laughing as well as a good time for guests to mingle and get to know one another. As an American, the best description is, Sangeet is like a Rehearsal Dinner except everyone who is invited to the wedding has also been invited to the Sangeet.
