WHAT: networking and cocktail event for wedding professionals in Tampa, Florida
WHERE: The Quorum Hotel, Tampa
WHEN: Wednesday, January 27, 2010
DETAILS: Owners Monica Varner and Erica Shelton explained the beautifully fun pink photos from the event below:
As guests entered the pink ballroom, they were greeted by pink light ribbons everywhere. There was a giant pink ribbon on one wall, tiny ribbons lit up all over the floor, and a “SAVE THE TATAS” logo on the acrylic bar. The Go-Go dancer was grooving to the beat in her hot pink wig and the guest speaker, Chris Hubbard, a breast cancer survivor and awareness advocate, was the real hit of the evening.
The décor featured three different floral centerpieces ranging from pale pink to hot pink on pink linens. The room had draped seating areas all around. There was a lounge area set up for the guests to relax as well as a private VIP area.
The signature pink drinks were flowing. For food, they offered sushi, Italian, and passed hors d’oeuvres. For dessert, pink cotton candy and a four-layered cake. We even had pink strawberry milk shooters that were served with the cake!
Many thanks to the event professionals who donated their services to help make the event a success:
