I love the 1950's

This is the first time that we have ever participated in a theme decor challenge. The International Society of Special Events in Vancouver is hosting their annual Buffet Blowout and they asked lotus events to be a part of it. The theme is 1950's / 1960's / 1970's.. 3 event planning companies... 3 catering companies... we each pick one decade and compete for Best Decor and People's Choice!

Since we were last to sign up, we were assigned the 1950's. Ok.. so we are 80's kids, but that is ok.. we are going to rock! We have some awesome ideas. The big thing for me is that I didn't want to do cliche 1950's decor. I wanted to do something out of the box and I think we have some good thoughts brewing in our busy minds.

The event will be taking place on March 26 at Can Am Importique Lake City Studios between 6pm to 9pm. More information can be found here. Our catering team is the lovely Lynn and Lisa from Absolutely Fabulous Foods. We make a great team and we are very excited to be working together!!

Does anybody know where I can get a 50's kitchen counter?

If you have never been to Can Am, it is a movie prop house. It has tons of stuff.. like super crazy stuff! Here are some pictures of just a sampling of their warehouse.

  1. Oh. Man.

    I did *not* know about this place, and now I *do* know about this place, and now I have to go tomorrow. I can't afford this! OMG! I am dying just looking at those photos.

    This is perfect too as we're often looking for stuff for photo shoots... I wonder what their rental rates are...

    What else do you guys know about that you're not sharing? You seem to know about all the cool and funky stuff!
