Red Carpet Birthday Backdrop - Recently I produced a red carpet event and thought I would share some of our charity fundraising ideas with you. The occasion was for PCRM and like other red carpet events we create, many hours of planning went into creating this successful nonprofit event. Among the main nonprofit ideas was to make this nonprofit event stick out from the audience since the charity was being released to a new audience on the West Coast. Therefore it was essential for this particular red carpet event to adhere to the highest level of professionalism concerning service, food, and design.
We accomplished this by bringing in one of the top live TV show producers who in turn constructed a top-rated production team making the tv part of this occasion seamless. Other charity fundraising ideas we used to keep our funding was supposed to create elegant floral arrangements at cost and recycle the glass containers. We even used among those flowery designs out of Budget Bash, that is to submerge a cymbidium orchid. Like most of other red carpet events, we placed "asks" for sponsors for our bar.
Since this was a vegan nonprofit event we had quite strict parameters in terms of exactly what drinks we could serve but found generous sponsors for our liquor, beer, and wine. Other sponsors were kind enough to allow us "borrow" their recipes where the caterer generated our delicious three-course dinner menu. Additional nonprofit ideas included our live and silent auction that stuck to a vegan code to make sure our patrons were not offended by that which we provided to help raise capital.
We utilized lighting effectively as our main design component for this red carpet event in addition to vegan-friendly drape and linen. We incorporated our design elements in the save-the-date card in addition to the invitation to make our classic yet tasteful room décor. And what exactly are red carpet events without an after party? For this region of the occasion, we quickly transitioned our cocktail area into a nightclub with a white dance flooring, white faux leather sofas, and a vegan dessert channel.
I learned a lot from producing this occasion particularly concerning healthful eating habits and incorporating aspects of a vegan diet into my everyday routine. Until the next time, remember the Budget Bash mantra: make it easy, delicious, trendy, enjoyable & economical to all!
