September 2012

In The Event produced and managed this year’s Mountain America Credit Union Employee Celebration held last Saturday, September 15.  The event was a 1920’s themed casino night.  Many employees came decked out in their 1920’s attire, with lots of pin stripped suites, fedora hats, and flapper dresses sighted.  Upon entering the party, held at South Towne Expo Center, guests had the opportunity to be photographed with a 1958 Rolls Royce set in front of a 1920’s style backdrop.  There were four other backdrops displayed in the room in the same style as the entrance backdrop. Casino games were crowded throughout the night, with options such as craps, roulette, and black jack.  There were also air hockey tables, pool tables, ping pong tables, shuffle boards tables and several photo booths.  Other event decor items included LED high boys, decor trees, chandeliers, feather centerpieces and two graphic LED towers wrapped around the property columns.  Food was provided by Utah Food Services and was buffet style, consisting of a roast turkey dinner.  Additionally, specialty beverages were served at frozen smoothie drink stations.

Following dinner, guests enjoyed a live band performance. Guests were able to use raffle tickets received from the casino tables to enter a number of drawings, and winners were announced at the end of the evening.  We loved designing and executing this event! Thank you Mountain America for allowing us to take part in your employee celebration!

For the second year in a row, In The Event was able to participate as a sponsor for the 4th annual Art Meets Fashion event, donating our unique event decor. We had a blast working with Heidi and Anne, AMF founders, this year to create this glamorous Hollywood-themed event. We utilized our black and white leather furniture, chandeliers, LED dance floor, video towers, high boys, and coffee tables. We also designed centerpieces for the VIP tables surrounding the fashion show, consisting of our tabletop chandeliers and large white feathers. To complete the look, we assembled two large centerpiece displays to surround the runway area. They were positioned atop of our mirrored pedestals, reflecting the scenery of the garden. The beneficiary for this year's AMF was Red Butte Garden. All proceeds went towards the development of Red Butte's new Water Conversation Garden. We love being a part of green events and making all of our own events as eco-friendly as possible, so this was a perfect fit! The evening began with an art hour in the Wall Garden, a DJ in the Wedding Garden, and some stunning floral fashion displays. The runway shows in the Wedding Garden began at 7 p.m, followed by a live swing band performance and a DJ concluding the evening's entertainment.

Thanks again to AMF for putting on this fantastic event in support of our local community!
