An excerpt from Bob’s Blog:
Photographer Erin Hession pulled out all the stops to celebrate her dear Aunt Mary’s surprise 50th birthday party at D’Amore Indianapolis. Because Mary, owner of Canine Retreat, has such a tremendous passion for dogs, Erin set out to create a canine-themed event, hiring her friends at A Touch of Elegance, Setting the Mood, Thomas Caterers of Distinction, Classic Cakes, DJs Direct and Strike a Pose among others to create one of the most abundantly clever implementations of a theme that I have ever seen. From the bone-shaped napkins to the two huge treat tables (only one for humans) to the “Come Sit Stay” window decals to the photo booth props (see yours truly below), not one opportunity was overlooked to make Mary feel right at home. Her reaction to every surprise that kept on coming was priceless. Everyone had a blast, and it was an honor to take part in yet another milestone in the lives of this wonderful, close-knit family.
Setting the Mood was lucky enough to decorate for this special event. We made giant “marybone” milkbones to hang from the ceiling, large dog dish centerpieces with colored milk bones in the bottom and a large tennis ball suspended atop.
We folded the napkins to look like dog bones. The cocktail table centerpieces were colored mini milkbones with candles and a dog collar around the cylinder.
Now, this is why Erin is brilliant…..We placed vinyl stickers on the windows that said COME….SIT…..STAY and Erin found the perfect position to photograph the sitting ice dog with the SIT backdrop. Is that girl clever or what!!
