Our company prides itself on being heavily involved in charitable events in and around Regina, and the 2012 Charity Royale was no exception. This year was our first time being heavily involved from initial planning through to event set-up – and we had a blast doing so!
Here is a brief break-down of what we contributed to the 2012 Charity Royale Rio Carnival experience…
Custom faux parade floats for silent auction tables: These parade floats consisted of digitally printed sheets of coroplast (corrugated plastic substrate) backed with sheets of coroplast covered in pedal paper (metalic paper used to brighten up parade floats). Add some bedazzling and sparkle spray, and you have impressive show pieces.
Panoramic window coverings: In order to give the bar area more of a dusk feel, we printed directly to styrene sheets (display panel substrate) and mounted them directly to the three main windows. This method covered the windows entirely, leaving the room with a gorgeous panoramic scene of Rio de Janeiro.
Backlits: We wanted to brighten up the bar area, so we decided to digitally print backlits for inserts on both the coat check counter, as well as the bar counter. The bright colours of the show girls and parade floats lit up beautifully with the glow of the lights behind them.
Waterfall feature corner: They wanted something to wow guests as they walked into the show lounge, and we gave them just that. The XX’ wide waterfall mural was printed on banner material, seamed together, and hung XX’ up in the air. With some additional lighting, greenery and rocks, this waterfall mural made you feel like you were in a Brazilian jungle!
Custom hanging butterflies: The smaller, glittery butterflies around the bar area and show lounge just didn’t quite add enough pizzazz on their own for an event of this magnitude, so we produced two4′x4′ butterflies to hang on either side of the stage. The bodies of the butterflies were shaped and welded together by our own Chris Lewry, then wrapped with a digitally printed flag material (produced in-house).
Show lounge mural: To the right-hand side of the stage, we printed three XX’xXX’ panels on banner material which was hung X’ up in the hair. These three panels displayed beautiful, bright colours that stood out, even in the dimmed lighting in the show lounge.
We want to personally thank Glennis and Linda from the Casino Regina, as well as Marsha and Jocelyn from Martin Charleton Communications for bringing us on board – we had so much fun working with you all. We definitely cannot wait until next year’s event…I wonder what the theme will be next year?!
