I have had a very quick lesson in how an event comes together. How quick? Two weeks quick. I jumped in at the last minute only because I started working in “Libbyland” two weeks ago. Everyone always sees the final product. But to get the end result takes months of planning. Every little detail is thought of for one of Ed’s events. Down to the flower and ribbon on a well thought out napkin ring.
In order for me to do my job I have to know how all the departments work in Ed’s company. So I started my morning with Kathleen at 6am on Saturday morning. Our party started at 7:00pm. That gives us about 12 hours for a room to come together. So Kathleen directed the loading in of all the party’s elements. Making sure all the rentals were there, the proper counts of everything. Making sure our staff loaded in all of the large and small details of the party. From the custom built furniture to the smallest of candle votives that go on each table. Then Ed & Kathleen “conducted” the installation of the event.
It’s definitely an involved, well thought out process and I learned a lot watching our crew. The end result was absolutely amazing and I couldn’t have been more proud to be associated with such an excellent team of people. But as you know, pictures speak much louder than words….
