A Venetian Valentine Prepared for: ADTP Student Committee Prepared by: David Chia January 30, 2011

Executive Summary Theme A Venetian Valentine features an event set in the heart of Venice where Pavarotti serenades and grapes dangle. The image of the Venetian canal and the gondolas transcend the guests into a romantic period of the Italian era. The very history of Valentine came from the Roman Pope Valentinious. Because of the tricolor Italian flag of green, white, and red, A Venetian Valentine is decorated with the theme colors.

Venue It will be held at the Sun-U Residences Pool Side.

Price 30MYR per person

Time 4.00 pm - 8.00pm

Highlights This event is unlike any other Valentine events out there because it takes a formal stereotypical setting of Valentine and turns it into a casual Italian theme. Unlike the typical poolside parties, A Venetian Valentine transforms the pool into a canal in Venice with ushers dressed as gondoliers with the stage that is a look alike to a port in Venice. Couples or even bachelors are given the opportunity to lay out in the summer sun to witness performances and singing gondoliers on the stage. The ushers would be around to string back the inflatable rafts giving others the chance to date in the middle of the pool i.e. the venice of canal. The mixed setting of a cocktail, sit-down, and pool transports the guests into an experience of being in all the three elements of Italy. With a Gelato stall and a caricature artist The grapes. The columns. The ports. The gondoliers. The gondolas. The Venetian Valentine is a Valentine that would imprints its legacy into the minds of not only its guests but also ADTP as a whole.
