Bring the colorful country of India and the luxurious feel of Bollywood to life!
Bollywood is the term used for the Hindi language film industry based in Mumbai, formerly Bombay India. Bollywood is the largest film producer in India. The term Bollywood was created from putting together Bombay and Hollywood (the center of the American film industry). The term Bollywood originates from the 1970's when India overtook America as the world's largest film producer.
E-Trender Angela coordinated Eisenhower High School's prom with their Activities Director, Amber Bronson and the student council for over 800 students, the mission....to bring a little Bollywood Bling to Shelby Township Michigan!
The ambiance of the ballroom at The Palazzo Grande banquet facility was set by the color palette that Angela chose for the event decor; bright tangerine, blazing yellow, delicious fuschia and a splash of turquoise. The above draping and turquoise crystal beading hung over the dance floor.
Colonial Events designed and setup the colorful draping over the dance floor and in the corners of the ballroom for the event, this made for a beautiful backdrop for our excited guests...
DIY Table Numbers ~
A Cricut personal cutting machine was used to make the table numbers and the turquoise decorative borders. Table numbers were adhered to a piece of cardstock with glue dots and bedazzled with jewel stickers.
Cylinder vases were decorated with jewels, ribbons, rich fabrics, and beaded garlands and filled with turquoise glass beads and peacock feathers. These centerpieces were created by the talented Christopher & Company.
ET Tip ~ Incorporate Peacock feathers... the Peacock is the national bird of India. Symbolic of beauty, grace and pride!
Angela and Amber put together these Ostrich plume centerpieces. Linens, chair covers, and gold charger plates for this event were rented from the gals over at Affordable Elegance Chair Covers and Linens!
These feathered centerpieces would make a great addition to many themed parties, here is the DIY tips on creating them...
Start off with a straight handle bouquet holder. We purchased ours here.
To create a full centerpiece, we used 25-30 Ostrich plumes that were19"-23" long in each bouquet holder.
We used 28" tall glass Eiffel Tower vases as the base for our centerpiece. Before putting the feathered holder into the vase, we disguised the bottom of the bouquet holder by putting a strip of gold cellophane wrap into each vase. The gold cellophane also tied in with the theme quite nicely!
After dinner, the chandeliers dimmed...the amber and yellow lighting warmed the room and the 2011 Senior Class of Eisenhower High School danced their way into futures of what we hope will be very bright.
