*Millie is a fictitious character I am developing for future use.
Millie had just dropped off the specifications of the event to the party planner supervisor who was going to oversee the whole gala. Millie’s company was a good customer of the local flower shop. Therefore, Lou’s Flower Shop donated some beautiful and extravagant floral arrangements to be auctioned off at the gala. One thing that Millie wanted to make sure of was that the video presentation of Sue Flemmings, the head of Computer Supplies Incorporated was set to be shown in conjunction with a D.J. remix of some popular soundtracks.
Among the details that Millie had on her list for Florence the event planner were: gift bags for all of the attendees; attractive centerpieces that could be given away to a lucky person from each table; each rose stem for those who were getting awards were going to be wrapped in alternating pink and purple ribbons; and finally, the entrees will be a variety of main dishes to choose from.
Millie also contacted the singers who were going to perform at the gala. In all the confusion, she almost forgot that the spouses of the award recipients needed to be asked if they wanted to say a small speech as well. Their speeches; plus the couple’s photographs with the official photographer; press statement interviews, and special flower arrangement for each power couple to take home would all be checked off with Florence, the event planner. All in all, Millie was determined to make this event a successful one!
