Goodbye from 1000e20’s world!

AND HAPPY ENTERTAINING!

Event & Wedding Designers When it comes to organizing events, talking turns around budgets, save the dates cards, guests lists, seating charts etc… it’s calculation, numbers, math and estimates. And this is pretty clear a right way to successful event planning. But this is also where my clients - and me - get nervous, uncomfortable and lost. My approach is a reversed formula: It’s all about atmosphere magic and extreme care for details. And it all turns into:

1000e20 presents SHOTS & MEANINGS ON THE PLEASURE OF SENSES

scents, sounds, flavours, colours, materia Let yourselves be enchanted through all your senses. Be rapt by the scent of lit candles in a fresh summer evening, by the breeze scented with incense. Be transported by the sound of a harp that sweetly breaks the black of the night. Be moved by the delightful taste of a sophisticated dish. Be stirred by the deep hue of a fine red wine and by the multiform of material that moulds giving structure to a dream, yours. Welcome to 1000e20’s world Sofia Bianchini

scents The sweet fragrance of an enchanting soiree, the smell of incense that lingers in the air, the aromatic notes of a bouquet all generate unforgettable memories of your event; a unique experience that speaks of you, of your character and style. As in a leading role you will enter a story that has always been yours...

the dream For any kind of party you are about to plan, begin to think at the whole. Think this not just an event but: the Event. Think wide and think big! Think whatever you have in mind and do not put limits to your imagination. Customize your dream to your desires. Things you have often dreamed of, the set-up you saw on a picture, the sound of music you heard that you loved, the clear sky on a perfect day, the joy and happiness on all faces, the magical performance of those acrobats, everything! Put everything into the pot and dream for a while. Let yourself go in each and every direction, let yourself be rapt by all senses‌ your budget is still zero because dreams have no price, but you feel the excitement has just begun!

the protagonists Next step, you should add to the recipe all the guests attending, and imagine their reactions to your dream. Imagine their faces, if you know them, and if you don’t try getting little information on their tastes, their habits, and their roots. Envision the effect your message is giving. Try to visualize whether or not they will share that idea. Be mindful that a successful event is determined by the reactions and responses of all people participating. And always remember that you are sharing something with them, not showing something to them.

the balance This is where you will start balancing dreams and reality and the difficult step is just here: harmonize all the ingredients, until the savor taste delicious. So I am afraid to say you will have to start making little compromises. You will have to “adjustâ€? your dream in terms of time and space, money involved, distances, people attending‌ start drawing a grid of the no(s) and the yes(s), a grid of the feasible and the not practical. You might feel the dream is over, and that you cannot carry out that project, but remember that nothing is impossible. You only need to look at it from a different point of view.

the key While working on this process, you may find yourself discouraged. All that you have put into the pot that seemed so perfect at first now need to be revised. You will have to start making budgets and set off the planning process. Make a list of vendors, of locations, of suppliers etc‌ This is where you need to find out your fil rouge. It can be anything: from the colour theme for dÊcor, to the performance you do not want to discard; from the coordination of all printing materials, to the line of finger food you definitely want into the picture. Once you have revealed your key, everything will automatically turn into perfection, but only in your head! Stick to that idea and make all elements match and synchronize to that key. This is the process of tailoring, you are now adjusting the dress to your client, to yourself, to your guests!

colours The harmony of shades, the use of colours or the dominance of the non-colour, the flower arrangements tastefully designed are not an additional element, they are the core of the perfect event. The circle closes with the delight of all the senses in an image of purity and refined simplicity. Everything must be harmonious and sincere, speak a single language, create the perfect mood that welcomes your guests and makes them feel at home.

the research Tailoring needs pins, cloth, sewing threads, needles, scissors, chalks, buttons, zips‌ Now that you begin to have a clearer idea and you feel more confident to know more or less what the dress will look like, you need to start search for suppliers. Make a long list of vendors easy reachable in you area. Try to locate at least three for each service required. Make calls, send mails and faxes, and always aim to testing their quality Gather materials, pictures, estimates and articles. Start collecting all information for each service and be armed with a lot of patience, diplomacy, and kindness. Always ask for all the possible options and do not take anything for granted. In the phase of the research you will also have to study carefully the well-known PLAN B. Be prepared to always have a fair duplicate of each service that you will bring into the game if one player is failing during the match. Have it ready for any emergency, always.

the budget As the picture is taking shape little by little, you will have to determine your budget and to allocate a cost for each and every element. You will have to start building estimates on how much all the factors of your event will cost. This process often goes along with the research because only searching you can get better ideas on how things and services cost and work, you will also find nice surprises, things and services you did not know they even existed! And this process is very helpful, because if you were uncertain of many details, now you know quite well what to cut and what to include. Once you have a list of all suppliers make appointments and meet the persons in charge of each service, talk to them, have them doing site inspections, technical checks, send them all a complete list of happenings and timetables.

the planning Now that you have a fairly reasonable plan to follow, you have to separate each ingredient and plan it carefully one by one. Just like a robbery plan you have to assign tasks to your working team. Draw a timetable, print in your mind a perfect image of the practical execution of each step and share it within your working team: every part, every single detail, every story related. Share all your ideas and delegate responsibilities. This is the stage where, if you are smart enough, you will start observing the process of generating that magical atmosphere. Now the working machine is in full operation, and you have to carefully supervise each phase. The direction has started. The date is finally arrived. The preparation has begun. Stay calm, you have everything under control, each step will follow automatically the next one and you feel confident because you have planned the whole with maniacal perfection that you know that nothing can go wrong. Oh yes, so many things can go wrong. But, remember you cannot determine or predict accidents that are beyond your control, so just let them happen. The most important thing is how promptly you react to these events. Once you know how to discern what can be repaired and what you cannot change, give everybody the impression that you had planned that too! Be prepared to let this dream come true and go in the natural direction it’s taking, this is the beauty of live broadcast and you have to include it in your plans. Always. Sofia Bianchini 2011
