WOW WHAT A YEAR WE HAD!

We were blessed to have clients bring to us their fun and interesting event themes and allow us to bring them to life with our fantastical eventertainment packages.

Before we go galloping into 2017 we wanted to pull a handful of those packages into the spotlight. 

**************************************************************************************************

January got off to a slow start with only 3 events… so let’s start with…
FEBRUARY where we debuted our customized Beaker champagne skirt at a Mad Science themed event booked by Entire Productions, as well as a Gatsby event, The Marin Valentines Ball Fundraiser, and our spotlight event- a Chinese New Year Celebration at Pantheon SF.

MARCH was a little wild with 007 Bond themed Champagne skirt (at an elementary school fundraiser of all things) and 2 body painted tray ladies for a St. Patrick’s day pub promotion… and our spotlight was a geisha themed entertainment package for a large tech company- at the best sushi place in San Francisco… Ozumo SF.

we introduced our brand new PARTY ANIMALS on 4 legged stilts for a Netflix Event and they have gone on to delight people at the SF & Oakland Zoos, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass,
3 Jack’s Night Markets in Oakland,
& 2 Rainforest Action Network Events. And the Wild-Life of the Party are just getting started!

In AUGUST in addition to flappers, mermaids, and a very fun UV bodypaint & glow go dance package for a fundraiser… we produced one of the most Luscious unique entertainment packages ever. Thanks to our best client Entire Productions– we were invited to the penthouse at the Fairmont in San Francisco for an exclusive birthday soiree where our fanciful steampunk character greeted, our champagne skirt lady gave out bubbly, and our 2 body painted bird ballerinas sat upon a giant gold cage and treated guests to a gorgeous dance performance on point.

In SEPTEMBER we had nautical champagne skirt, swimming mermaids, stone living statue, wine country wedding, and a fun Circus themed package with a handful of stilt walkers. But what stands out was what we did for the American Cancer Society’s Discovery Gala… where our two aerialists dangled amongst the chandeliers over the guests heads and our Living dessert table delivered treats to guests on the dancefloor in the penthouse after dinner.

In OCTOBER we sent mad scientists to the Exploratorium and Bigge Crane 100 year anniversary party had interactive character models from the 20’s, 40’s, 60’s & 80’s… and we did body paint and giant stilt walking flowers for a wild party at the SF Battery (where Jefferson Starship headlined!) We were hired by Do Good Events to bring  4 Stilt Walkers to the fundraising Gala for the Rainforest Action Network.
