As I feel quite strongly about helping charity organizations out, Epiphany Designs offered to donate custom-designed table numbers for the event. The only request made by the organizers was that the table numbers be names of countries that Doctors Without Borders works in, and that they match a black & white theme BUT also add a splash of color. From there, the rest was up to us to create! Yay! I love these kinds of projects!
We had quite a bit of fun with the process. The fronts of the table numbers have not only the name, but a super-imposed map of, each country. We added that "splash" of color by using aqua cardstock and gorgeous fuschia satin ribbon, and topped it all off with three hand-applied Swarovski crystals. On the back we chose to put a bit of information about Doctors Without Borders in each particular country (ie. the "Cambodia" table has information about DWB in Cambodia), and added a picture taken from their website of DWB in action.
So what do you think? Did we achieve the right "effect"?
I'll make sure to take more pics at the actual event next week so you can see how much work these students put into everything. Its going to be fun!
