The Good the Bad and the Pretty

Oh what a way to end the month (and start afresh!)

Well first off I must apologize for the minimal posts these past couple weeks, I’ve been a bit hectic with the good, the bad…and the pretty!

(the bad) On Tuesday April 20th, I lost the hard drive that housed ALL my design work form the past 7 years. UGH…it was a bad day.

(the good) Thanks to some magical data recovery center far far away, I found out this Friday that they were able to recover my data and I should be getting it back this week, yippy!

(The good) the very expensive lesson I learned….back up your data once a week and not just to one source

(the bad…or the good…not sure yet) I also turned 30 years old on April 28th.

(the pretty) April 29th was the third annual fundraiser for the Greater Omaha Chapter of the National Association of Catering Executives, an organization that is filled with amazingly talented individuals from all walks of the event industry. This year’s theme was Forks in Paradise and consisted of a tablescape and chef challenge.

The tables this year were pretty amazing, beautiful and even witty! Here are some pics:

White Table
this table was designed by myself and a good friend/event planner Mindell.
We had an absolute blast shopping and designing this table.

The Winner
designed by Catering Creations

One of my Favorites!
designed by United Rent-All and D-Tales

An Animated Table
designed by the Hilton Omaha...the centerpiece was a projected aquarium...

Beach Bums - gotta love the chairs with bikini's on them!

And the People's Choice Winner
designed by Florals Etcetera

Of course I did some programs for the event as well, this is the first time I've created a matchbook style program and I quite like the way it turned out.

(the good) The fundraiser Thursday night was a blast, Friday night I got to attend the Berkshire Hathaway Borsheims Reception and pick out my birthday present (don’t you just LOVE it!)

and then last night was the big 3-0 bash. Wow, I am exhausted, but super excited to get back into my daily routine of designs, blogging and the rest of my life! Happy Sunday everyone!
