Pineapples are all the rage and it’s no wonder; they are delicious
and aesthetically interesting.
For this Gold Themed event, full size pineapples were cored, spray painted gold,
and used to hold floral arrangements.
We also love the mini pineapple stems to show guests their seating assignments!

Why go with the usual photo booth when you can have a green screened television booth, complete with boom mic and camera. In this event, guests tested out their bilingual skills by reading from a teleprompter.
The video can then be quickly edited with a background and then broadcast either to the participant or the event attendees. The possibilities to customize are endless.
