Art Appreciation Fund-Raiser

  • Pass hors d'oeuvres off of artists' palettes.
  • Present food at different stations, with the floral arrangement and linen of each representing a different period in history.
  • Instead of using table numbers, use post cards of your favorite pieces to designate table names. For example, seat someone at the "Mona Lisa" table vs. Table 5.
  • Design your dessert to mimic an artist's palette or your cake to mimic your favorite work of art, whether a modern Picasso or even a replica of "The Thinker"!

  • Preppy Wedding

  • Have your florist create a hand-tied bouquet of lime greens and hot pinks.
  • Have your cake designer alternate preppy stripes and polka dot layers on your cake.
  • Utilize clean lines and opt for square tables rather than round.
  • Tie guest napkins with plaid grosgrain ribbon adorned with a mini belt buckle.
  • Provide your groom and groomsmen with preppy striped ties to accentuate your theme.

  • It's A Water-ful Life Picnic

  • Escort guests under a giant wave and through a "misting tent".
  • Give away beach towels with company logo.
  • Host an Atlantis City Casino area - decorated with tall pillars and oversized clam shells, crabs, and seaweed.
  • Have a Beach Boardwalk backdrop for the game area.
  • Include props such as Psychedelic Surf Boards and a 10' Giant Sand Castle.
  • Have your DJ or Emcee dress as King Neptune.
  • Your games can include the Dunk Tank and Water Bombs, of course!

  • Lounge Lizard Party

  • Play the music of Dean, Sammy and Frank in the background.
  • A Dean Martin impersonator can greet guests as they enter and a 50's style coat check girl can take guests' wraps and coats.
  • Of course, a Casino area where guests can try Lady Luck is always a fun choice.
  • Soft lighting on a black and white checkered dance floor will help to bring your theme together.
  • Utilize red and black linen on your cocktail tables.
  • Hire a roving photographer dressed like a Caesar's girl to take guest pictures.
  • Pass hors d'oeuvres on trays with oversized dice and playing card "garnish".
