The emcee was Aisha Alfa and she was amazing, and Guerrillas of Soul played, and they were fantastic. Creating a Scene also helped with the decor and provided the rentals, and the room looked cheerful and spring-y.

These centrepieces were made by taking tin cans of different sizes and gluing moss around the cans. Next, I tied the cans with jute, filled them with potting soil and just before the event started I "planted" two tulips in each can. It took me about 3 hours to make 18 cans, and was pretty inexpensive. I think this would make a great centrepiece at a shower or rehearsal dinner or outdoor event, or at an outdoor wedding.
Here's another angle:
I'm really excited for the next face 2 face event in October! It was a great night and we had a fantastic time meeting new people and chatting about events in Winnipeg.
