The design for the ball started as a blacked draped space with ascents of blue drapes highlighted with silver detail. This went through various design ideas landing on silver angel wings against tied blue drapes with blue drapes backing the main stage area. Central installation of gold chandeliers with various sized mirror balls to represent planets in the solar system over the dance floor.

Wanting to explore the idea of creating an installation piece for the table centers based on the company’s mission statement. Initial ideas started when looking at silver tie wire as an element to hold together pieces of wooden branches to create creatures using the ancient art of Ikebana as a reference. Tie wire represents people who have given generously and contributed their time and expertise over the past twenty years to Aurora, creating and changing the lives of people who need their help. The sixty creatures were divided into three groups of gold, silver and copper which I designed three versions of each. they are:-  gold nest, gold egg and gold arrow  silver metallic branch, silver butterflies and silver angel wing  copper horned beast, copper pods and copper hive
