New Years Party

We spent New Years decorating a fabulous wine bar in Whitefish, Montana for their biggest party every year.  Our palette was white, grey, & silver.  There was a ton of glitz, a ton of glam, and even disco balls. We had a blast! 


The main event of the night was a fantastic DJ and band named Firefly.  With all the dancing, we had to make sure most of our decor was up high and out of the way.

For one of our main focal pieces, we created a multi dimensional bubble chandelier to accent the Champagne Room -- a favorite spot tucked away with comfy seating and romantic lighting.




During the night, the track lighting was focused on this piece - making it a beautiful source of light.



For the main room, we implemented a few simple elements to make the room pop without taking away from the dance floor. 

A curtain of crystals, silver, clear, and glittered ornaments hung from tulle and grey fabric to catch light from the disco balls.






We also hand dyed fabric using the ombre technique to achieve a gradation of dark grey to white to hang as panels above the seating area.



To carry the fun, sparkling essence of champagne throughout the venue, we created a piece of art on an 8' sheet of plywood that held quotes from Winston Churchill, Mark Twain, and other great figures in history.  We wanted this to be a very fun piece, and something people would actually read while mingling and enjoying the last of 2010.



"Come quickly, I am tasting the stars." is our favorite.

To finish the look, we added tinsel, silver trees, and to top it all off -- 2 disco balls that made everything sparkle.





We hope your New Years eve was full of fun, looking ahead, and resolution for 2011.  Cheers!

With the above elements in place it's time to begin bidding on work. Be specific in your bid about why you would be the best person for the job and don't make the mistake of doing a cut and paste job when writing your bids - hirers really don't like this and it will be a waste of your time. In the early days you will more than likely need to bid low ($1-2 per 100 words) in order to get a few jobs. Once you have a few writing jobs under your belt and you've received positive feedback (most of the writing sites have this feature kind of like Ebay) you can start to increase your prices. What Makes a Good Freelance Writer? Before your face a telephone interview, get some practice. Ask a friend or family member to conduct and tape record a dummy interview to see how you sound over the phone. A teacher has the noble responsibility of shaping the society. As such, seldom are they allowed to be selfish and short tempered. Dealing with students can be a tough job. It requires patience and willingness to spend time with them. I hope that you are ready to take up this responsibility and deliver it with all the success. This is where I sign off! All the best!

A party event is perfect to let you relax. Snacks served are of great importance, Snacks served in a party can become more important than the main buffet. Here I would also like to share my personnel experience. Last year I throw a corporate party in Brooklyn at esquire. They really organize all the events very perfectly.
