Jrex just left to go into lab for the morning. This afternoon we get to head up to Marin County for a West Coast Reception at a beach. Ah, the beach. Sun, sand and seashells, right? Nope. It’s north of San Francisco and therefore COLD in the summer. The classic Mark Twainism is SO true, “The coldest winter I ever spent was summer in San Francisco.” We’ll go from 70-80 degree sunshine here to possible fog and 50 degree weather up there.
In the meantime I’m surfing the net looking for cool party elements. One aspect of my new job is that we plan Events. As in, “this party has no budget, we’ve only got $70,000 to work with” events. I’ve already designed the signage and graphics for the official tech-geek part of the trade show; this party is a different animal. The party is at The P4lms in L4s V3gas (top floor is home for a herd of Playb*y Bunnies), all we have to do is add a theme overlay to the already overloaded party venue. Three zones, a trade show debuting a product called “R3d Sh1ft” and voila, a party called “Spectrum” with Red for the dance club, Blue for the Pool area and Green for the lounge. Robo-sexy serving women with colored wigs, laser light shows in the dance club and videos splashed everywhere.
Um. I’ve never been a party girl? I’ve only planned one event in my life and I just went with the first suggestion for everything! You like this person for flowers? OK, done. First church we saw? Fine. I know nothing about ice sculptures as martini shoots, fire shots in barber chairs or creating an event that is “sexy but not trashy.” I’m supposed to be helping to find asset images for what we could do at the party. What do I search on Google?! The important thing is the concept and I have no idea what I’m doing!
