When a client asked us to bring “Midsummer Night’s Dream” to life in their backyard, we started shopping for butterflies and dragonflies – 875 of them to be exact. Remember the power of multiplicity, especially in vast spaces. Many an online source exist for finding such props.
They fluttered on waitstaff shirts, on our hostess’ dress, and even came to life in the form of a 12′ tall stilt-toting Dragonfly who greeted guests at the red carpet.
Fans of “animation” at events, we brought famed characters BOTTOM the donkey and Titania, the fairy princess, to life in the form of living mannequins – custom-styled from head to toe. In addition, guests were surprised by a living, talking “floral wall” that cruised the party a la stilts.
Regardless of budget, and degree of execution, the point is to bring things to life and have them roam your next event for bigtime wow – be it a child’s party, corporate launch, or backyard BBQ. When we don’t have the luxury of accessing our style team, we shop online for costume websites and buy key wardrobe accessories to build from.
To complete the ambiance, we anchored an all-wooden bar and forest-creature puppets to the mix. We contacted our local puppeteer shop and they were thrilled to oblige.
So first you take a garden, sprinkle it with butterflies and sprung-to-life roaming characters, add a dash of wooden wonders, and you’ve got yourself an enchanted Forest.
