Welcome Aboard

At the end of 2009 I was contacted by Philip who wanted me to organise his retirement party, I planned his daughters wedding in 2008 and although both events had been at the family home in Norfolk, Philip wanted to ensure this time the marquee was very different to an elegant wedding. I had such fun planning his party, the family are wonderful and it is always great when you already know the ‘lay of the land’ and can just get on with the planning. We decided on a theme of sailing as this is a hobby of his, and once that decision was made, Philip just let me loose on the design trusting it would be perfect on the day. I have so many pictures to show you but as a taster here are 3 to get us started. I will post more over next couple of weeks.

    How large were the life preservers in your welcome aboard centerpieces? And did you double side the centerpieces so the other side of the table also had the view of the life preserver? Thanks we’re doing an event for a conference and I love the look of this event

      I’m sorry this was in 2009 so I’m afraid I cannot remember the size, from memory they were double sided though
