We adore bringing our magic to Galas.
They are grand, elegant, and almost always raising money for a good cause.

A Circus themed Gala for the Special Events Industry! We couldn’t resist.
We debuted our ‘Become the Art’ photo opp cart & a dessert serving skirt & 2 stilt walkers.

At this fundraising gala for Women’s Initiative in 2011 we debuted our first made serving skirt (which had inspiring quotes and some glasses of wine) as well as had a stilt walker fanning rose petals onto guests as they entered the ballroom. Nice touch to make people feel special!
