Standout Prom Contest 2009: graduation party!!!

So in Friday's blog post I mentioned I would be going on the Leavenworth Drive, however, plans changed a bit and I wasn't able to go on the drive this year(so no photos/post on that).

Today, I wanted to share with you Claire's (standout prom winner) graduation party. The graduation party was planned/put together by Tammi Barber of TLB events. The party was held at The Robert Daniel Gallery in Tacoma--- thanks to Mr. Robert Daniel who discounted the rental price (dramatically) for the party. All the photos were taken by Christy Pelland of c.pelland photography.

The space was personalized with photos and mementos of Claire, brought by her family.

Take a look at this "cupcake room".....

This room had a table filled with six dozen mini cupcakes that were donated by Indulge Cupcakes in Puyallup. Flavors ranging from orange creamsicle to carmel macchiato. They are just as delicious as the look!

Christy Pelland put together this wonderful slideshow on her thirty inch cinema display of Claire's experience as the winner of the Standout Prom Contest---from the day we had surprised her at Rogers High School to the photo shoot in Tacoma. Christy also included information and images of all the various sponsors.

Christy was also able to get some food donated by Act 3 Catering in Tukwila as well as servingware donated by AA Party Rental. Take a look at the appetizers...

It is hard to believe that Tammi is not a trained florist. Tammi's detail and creativity makes each one of the arrangements truly unique. Here is some of her beautiful work from Claire's graduation party...

Thanks again to Christy Pelland for coming up with this wonderful idea of recognizing an outstanding young lady as well as giving back to the community. Photo of Claire Tran (Standout Prom Contest Winner of 2009) and Christy Pelland of c.pelland photography.

The cleanup crew... Christy, Tammi and me.

I look forward to being a part of this whole experience next year!

In tomorrow's post we'll be visiting The Robert Daniel Gallery again, however, this time for the Metal-Urge opening reception that happened last Thursday (June 18). It was neat to see how the gallery was transformed with all the new work.
