With the 50th Anniversary Celebration drawing quickly to a close, the guests were treated to one last formal gala dinner. The Marquis Ballroom at the MGM Grand was transformed into a sea of red roses & glittering gold tables. The ICA Floral Team created elegant, elevated centerpieces with thousands of long-stemmed red roses. Over 5,000 guests sat down for this festive dinner before they moved on to their final, farewell concert with Sir Elton John. Towards the end of the evening, the guests were surprised with “indoor fireworks” in the form of a well-timed kabuki banner drop. The banners & metallic streamers had been rolled up to the ceiling prior to dinner. At just the right moment, the trigger was flipped and the banners unfurled in a rhythmic popping & dropping. A grand finale for such a grand event. This 50th Anniversary Celebration was a wonderful corporate event to be part of. So much fun to be part of the planning team, as well as designing & executing festivities in both Grand Rapids and Las Vegas. Let’s hope they don’t wait another 50 years for another big celebration!!!
