Innovative Party Planners has been awarded the ‘Best Overall Table Designer’ at NACE Baltimore Chapter’s Uncorked! 2012.

We want to thank everyone who contributed to the design, materials and fabrication of our winning table design:
Zozzie Golden (who celebrated her birthday the night of the event) for inspiring the theme ‘Panda-Monium’, finding all things panda and assisting with the execution, Mary Ellen Pease for letting us into her forest to cut down bamboo, IPP’s own Tally Johnstone for cutting down that bamboo and for everything she did to assist with the design and execution of this table, IPP’s own Sheryl Berger for her talent and panda paintings, IPP’s Rebecca for holding down the fort while we set up at BCC, Ellene Pomerantz of Write Style for executing a gorgeous table menu and her inspiration, Susan at Select Events for assisting with the table linens and chair selection, Bill Tien of Matsuri Restaurant for meeting our challenge to create panda sushi and most important to the judges for voting for us. We are incredibly honored to have won and continue to be inspired by our peers at NACE Baltimore.
